Themes and goals:

Democratic participation is one of the four transversal priorities of the E+ programme. This thematic seminar, with a focus on study visits and the sharing of tools, aims at how to bring democratic participation into the classroom.

Main goals:

  • To get to know new ready-to-use tools on democratic participation
  • To foster democratic participation in new applications or ongoing projects by the use of different means
  • To network between different participants (newcomers and experienced) and stakeholders

Expected results:

To create stable relations with the Institutions on the territory, to collaborate in promoting and organising activities on the territories to consolidate and direct the civic engagement.

To create a structure of national Observatories that can periodically measure, by means of indicators, the improvements on the themes promoted by the European Commission (internationalisation, civic engagement, inclusion, green, digital, etc.) to identify the critical areas and design, together possible corrective actions.

To define a program of events to be repeated periodically on the territory. Starting in Italy at regional level, involving institutions, networks of Ambassadors, Alumni and Role Models and targeting teachers, territories and citizens.

To organize international events in which Alumni/Ambassadors meet and create multi-country groups to go and meet students and teachers together, bringing a message of common intent and union of cultures and races.

To foster synergies between funds in order to increase the number of mobilities and projects granted, and to promote civic participation in European life.
