We are happy to announce that 2 of our projects have been approved.
“The first one is “Raise a problem, get an answer!”, and it’s one of the 2 Youth & Democracyprojects (Action 1.3.) that were approved by EACEA on this deadline. It aims to create a platform for the exchange of good ideas about activities that youth can undertake to start a real change in the society they live in by becoming the agent of the change that they want to see in their community. The project will last 17 months and will be implemented in 4 countries (Estonia, Italy, Romania and Lithuania). The Project is also foreseen to experiment with the platform, by starting to collect and upload the contents and materials on the platform so that it can commence working. “Raise a problem, get an answer!” foresees also a visit to the Commissions of the European Parliament with a presentation of the platform and submission of some operative proposals of intervention and identification of certain “problems” of the society.

The second one is “Amplifier: share, evaluate and design the future!”, and it is the only trans-national Youth Seminar (Action 5.1) that was approved by EACEA on this deadline. The project aims at mainstreaming the interests and recommendations of young people, incorporating them into policies and institutional initiatives, remarkably the new European Programme for youth. The seminar will take place after a great deal of preliminary work, including numerous polls, questionnaires, surveys and public consultation developed both online and at local level. We will involve youth leaders, politicians, experts, decision-makers, administrators in the field of youth and policy-makers to, like the title suggests, share opinions, experiences and best practices connected to youth work and youth policies. This Seminar will take place in Cagliari, Italy, in October 2013 and will bring together 48 people from Italy, Portugal, Poland, Hungary, Croatia, Latvia and Romania representing organizations with great experience in the YiA Programme.
