Programme Youth in Action – Action 1.1 – Youth Exchange

Youth exchanges allow groups of young people from different Countries to meet and get to know their respective cultures. The exchange is planned by the young people themselves, based on a theme of common interest.

“EU is your Right” is a 7 days youth exchange involving 30 young people from Italy, Estonia, Poland, Romania, Slovenia and Lithuania. The project encourages the reflection and the exchange of ideas regarding the following themes: European identity and cultural diversity, rights and duties linked with European citizenship, intercultural debate on common challenges and issues that young people face in Europe.

The main objectives of the exchange are:

  • Promote the reflection among the young people involved on “European Citizenships” and its related rights.
  • Encourage young people to reflect on themes that are relevant at European level, involving them in the debate on building Europe’s future.
  • Enhance the value of the opportunities that the EU offers to young people, as tools to face common challenges and issues at European level.
