We have seen that policy reform and politics are more of a spectator activity for young people where
they believe they have no influence nor say in what happens in their countries, we have so often heard
young people say “no matter who we vote for, nothing will change”. We hope to change this. Our goal is
not to form a political movement, but to get young people off the couch and empower them to make the
changes they want to see in their world, starting from their homes, their communities, their countries
and in the EU, and in the near future even in the world.

Our project will give young people the tools and resources to understand their rights as EU citizens, to
understand the reasoning behind the choices of their governments, to challenge these choices and to be
actively involved in the reform that are needed in their communities and in the EU. We will help young
people understand the process of policy reform, the methods and approaches needed by policy makers
to make these choices, understanding that meeting the needs of a society also means that some
expenses need to be covered and to allow the youth to take these expenses into consideration, thus not
only demanding reform, but contributing to this reform through understanding that the system, be it a
local government, or even the EU, needs all of us to contribute in order for it to serve us all.

The project involves many program countries allowing us to learn and understand that we have common
concerns and problems, but will also allow us to understand that sometimes these problems are caused
by our lack of involvement and our passive approach to problems in our society often cause the
problems. We will learn that together, and by being active in our societies, we can make changes, not
only because we can, but because we must be the building blocks of our societies and our EU and the
only way we can create a society for everyone is to actively work together and make the changes.

The Project will use the EU democratic model as the basis of democracy so that we can share the values
of the EU, in understanding how the EU was developed and how it has become so strong, working
together for the good of all its people, we will promote diversity and EU enlargement and show how the
EU model works for all of us. We will also focus on inclusion, discrimination and diversity. We will give
focus on young people at risk and work on ways to overcome these risks allowing all people to feel equal
and for all human rights to be protected.

We have become a society of couch citizens, sitting back and just viewing everything as it passes our eyes,
now is the time to get off the couch and to build the country, the EU and the world, we want to live in.
The project will use a series of proven non-formal methodologies to achieve its goals and will continue to
empower young people to understand the importance of active citizenship so that we can all contribute
to EU enlargement and the positive and collective growth of our countries.

We will examine the EU treaties and even EU laws and policies, see how our country influenced these,
and more importantly how we as young people can influence and affect future policy in the EU.
