Programme: Europe for Citizens
Identifier: 615755-CITIZ-1-2019-2-SK-CITIZ-TT
Title: #BFF
Summary
The project implementation is focused on the support for coexistence of nations in the Central Europe. The nations are connected by their borders as well as their mutual history. At the same time, the nations are members of the EU; Austria since 1995 and the rest of the partners since 2004 – we celebrate the 15th anniversary of their membership in the EU. At this moment, the partners decided to remind their citizens what it means to belong to the EU, what it means to be a European citizen. From this perspective, the project will offer information about the EU, discussions on European issues and commemorations of historical events which have brought about democracy to all corners of Europe. Eventually, the interest in the EU shall grow again. It is an important moment, as there are eurosceptical feelings growing in the Central Europe. The recent elections to the European Parliament have shown that the support for political parties standing in opposition to the EU has been growing. They have reached some 10% support on average. This cannot be neglected. Therefore, the EU and its benefits in favour of all citizens need to be emphasised. It is also important for the partnership as it is formed by countries such as Slovakia, Austria, Czechia and Hungary. It is also based on the citizens of the partner municipalities. If they were becoming more and more sceptical towards the EU, they could become sceptical towards the partnership, too. The project is a barrier against the negative trends. It enforces the position of the EU in the partnership and supports the development of the European citizenship. This way, the following goals are followed:- to remind all about the importance of the EU for the partnership and the citizens- to learn about solidarity and volunteering as principles of the European citizenship- to engage young people into European initiatives and to develop the European citizenship - to strengthen the partnership of municipalities and citizens.
