DEMOcritic! a new baraka project… check here how to participate
March 4th, 2010 by Ruxandra

DEMOCRTIC is a long term project that aims at promoting youth active citizenship and boosting young people’s involvement in the democratic process at local, regional and European level. It  will gather young people from 12 organizations from Spain, Poland, Italy, Greece, Turkey and Romania. Democritic is realised with the support of the European Commission through Youth in Action Programme.

WHY?
The rate of non-participation in the last European Parliament elections makes us think about the lack of active citizenship among young people at all levels: from local to European one.

WHAT IS THIS FOR?
DEMOCRITIC was born to drive young people to become the main characters of their own lives and to let them make the most of all the resources they can reach, promoting active citizenship and social participation.

HOW?
Through three seminars, based on non formal education and dealing with: youth participation, European resources, EU organization and structure, youth work, Public organization that represent us, key words: democracy and participation, being “democritic” in your daily life, the new challenges of 21st century, the struggle against organized crime etc.

WHERE AND WHEN?

San Sebastián, Spain   7-13 of May 2010

Kraków, Poland September 2010   (dates still to be confirmed)

Naples, Italy December 2010  (dates still to be confirmed)

The three courses will share a common aim (to encourage youth participation and active citizenship) and a similar structure. Some workshops and sessions (such as “Key words: Democracy and active participation”, “strategies to improve youth participation”, etc.) will be presented in every seminar. Nevertheless, each event will deal with a specific issue: “cultural barriers in a border-free Europe” in San Sebastian; “East-West dialogue” in Kraków and “the struggle against organized crime” in Naples.

INFO ABOUT THE TRAINING COURSE IN SAN SEBASTIAN
The seminar aims at developing competences of active citizenship and youth participation and promoting democratic values. In particular, it will focus on knocking down cultural barriers and stimulating intercultural dialogue.

The participants will have the chance to prepare  a real strategy to encourage youth participation and to try it in the real world (practical activity “on the ground”).
