Despite strained efforts of EU to create close links with youth and increase their participation in European affairs, the latter presents low participation rates and distrust for the EU. The low participation of young generation deprives the EU a remarkable and important source of ideas and opinions, creates mismatches between decisions taken and the real needs of young people, exacerbates the dissatisfaction of young people and alienates even more the youngsters from the idea of a united Europe.
Through this Youth Exchange, participants will:1) Come closer to the EU and the decision-making.2) Increase their confidence in EU and decision-making processes.3) Promote the concept of active European citizenship.4) Promote democratic principles.5) Promote cooperation and mutual understanding with other young people from different countries and cultures.
