Title: EUROPEAN ACADEMY NETWORK - ENCOURAGING DEMOCRATIC PARTICIPATION AT EU LEVEL
Summary
With the reappearance of demands for national borders, the four EU freedoms (free movement of goods, services, capital and persons) and EU multiculturalism are under threat. With this in mind, and with respect to the priority to challenge Euroscepticism, the partners of the EUROPEAN ACADEMY NETWORK aim to provide European local and regional policy makers and citizens with knowledge and tools that support active citizenship and democratic Union. The unique composition of the partnership will allow a group of 1270 citizens to get engaged in a process that includes real-life SIMULATION ACTIVITIES to experience how EU institutions operate and to understand the subtleties of EU policy making (Europ. Parliament, European Council, Commission, Committee of the Regions, Council of the EU). This will allow different groups in society to personally engage in Union policy processes, as well as internalize democratic values that unite Europe. The ACADEMY moreover will spread good practices of how policy makers and citizens can engage in EU matters, and participate in its making. The project activities will take place between March 2020 and July 2021, engaging partners from 13 countries: Bulgaria, Italy, Belgium, Spain, Portugal, Malta, Slovenia, Hungary, Croatia, Austria, Montenegro, Poland, and Latvia. By facilitating exchange and policy learning among participants, the project will increase institutional capacities in long-term - a fundamental asset for the future of democracy, taken into consideration nationalistic tendencies in Europe. With the intention to broadly support European civic education and engagement in shaping the EU agenda, a POLICY TOOLKIT will be published and disseminated as a tool with pan-European relevance containing reviewed methods and worked out approaches. We expect a 70% increase of volunteering of 1270 people directly involved. Through dissemination (eg. visuals, BLOG) the project aims to reach 100.000 people across Europe.
