Raise your voice for tomorrow's Europe

Forum "Raise your voice for tomorrow's Europe"

The attempt to advance European political integration further beyond intergovernmental cooperation leads to the question, to which extent civic identification and will for collective political action is possible at European level? Do young Europeans have opportunities to become socialized to European citizenship? How do we understand the concept and what are the mechanisms to practice it? Is the European dimension promoted using appropriate pedagogical approaches to citizenship at national level? Further on, what is today the role of youth work in developing young people’s sense of civic engagement for Europe and current European concerns?

SALTO South East Europe in cooperation with the Slovenian, Austrian, German and Polish National Agencies of the Erasmus+ Programme in the field of youth and the EU-CoE Youth Partnership organised a forum on education for democratic citizenship "Raise your voice for tomorrow's Europe" in Ljubljana, Slovenia 13th - 16th of November 2017. The aim of the forum was to promote the European dimension in education for democratic citizenship with young people and contribute to the recognition of European citizenship.

The forum gathered various stakeholders in the field education for democratic citizenship to reflect on the potential of European citizenship in youth work and education today, explore the opportunities and challenges connected to integrating the European dimension in their practice and build new partnerships for further cooperation.

The conclusions and outcomes of the activity will be published in a report in the beginning of 2018!
