Transcript of Youth in Action Eastern Express

Youth in Action It's an EU programme for young people. Where's Malta? I had to insert Iceland. What about Azerbaidjan? Young people from The Netherlands, Belgium, Bulgaria, Spain, Ireland, Italy, Austria, Greece, Cyprus, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Portugal, Poland, France, Romania, Sweden, Germany, Slovakia, Slovenia, Finland, Denmark, Czech Republic, Hungary, Estonia, United Kingdom, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Switzerland, Croatia and Turkey can take part in any project types of the programme. Adults working with young people can take part in some, but they help young people. Young people and youth workers from Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, FYROM Macedonia, Kosovo, Montenegro, Serbia, Armenia, Azerbaidjan, Georgia, Moldova, Ukraine, Belarus, Algeria, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, The Palestine Territory, Morocco, Syria and Tunisia can take part in some project types with European partners. There are many understandings. Geographical. Political. Historical. Economical. In people's attitudes. In laws.
YiA gives you an opportunity to learn about Europe. But why does Youth in Action exist? So that young people could get active and learn about stuff. Errr... But since EU gives
885 000 000 €
to spend on young people in Europe, it also gives you hints about topics to learn about. Priorities Means learning about Europe, EU and being an active citizen in your town, country and Europe European Citizenship Means learning ways of being active, taking part in shaping own world. And being and active participant in YiA projects Participation of y.p. Means learning about other European cultures, minority cultures and subcultures. Learning tolerance and understanding differences, similarities and common values Cultural Diversity Means learning about different situations of European young people and giving EVERYONE a possibility to take part Inclusion of y.p. with fewer opportunities These topics are called And there's a lot of them This is Europe. Or at least one understanding of it. What was the theme for 2012?
What's the theme for 2013? European Thematic Years Ideas for ending poverty, youth unemployment and exclusion. Including immigrant background kids, disabled kids, Roma kids in projects YiA. Inclusive Growth Got a new idea? Try it out. Look out of the box. Don't just sit, put ideas in action. Creativity, Initiative and Entrepreneurship To learn about healthy life, finding information on health and changing life into active by sports and outdoor activities Healthy Lifestyles Learn about environment, sustainable solutions, ways of consumption, learning how to go green Sustainable Development So again,
why these topics? Nobody gets money for free. (sadly) EU wants to achieve something with this money. Youth in Action Programme has objectives to fulfil: YiA wants to achieve: A Europe with active citizens
A Europe where people show solidarity and tolerance towards difference
A Europe where citizens understand each other and cooperate
A Europe where youth services are high level
A Europe where youth work is international Europeans do it together. Do you see the idea behind? Young people make projects... They talk and learn about priorities... They become European, tolerant, cooperative, active, green, healthy... Europe becomes better too!
