Aims & objectives

The project “EUROPE ON AIR 2.0” Methods for European Citizenship Education and Innovation in Youth Participation” was aimed to bring together youth workers and interested young people from programme countries and neighbouring partner countries to discuss the meaning of youth participation and volunteering in order to give new impulses for European Citizenship Education, to share possible ways to break the issue down for the practice in international youth work and to come up with creative ideas and support for practitioners in the international youth field. The programme of the TC supported the participants in exploring the opportunities of the YiA programme for the international work with young people, in establishing new contacts and in creating stable partnerships among organisations and to come up with new youth projects.
