17–23 April 2016 Berlin, Germany
The purpose of this project was to analyze the flaws and deficiencies in existing pre-EU communication and develop strategies and tools to adjust it to the needs of younger generations, identifying the requirements for creating a common European identity. This involved simplifying existing arguments, finding more effective channels to disseminate them (e.g. social media) or simply presenting them more attractively. Also, make participants aware of national differences and similarities regarding the discourse on a unified Europe. One of the main objectives was to motivate the participants to apply the knowledge acquired in this training in future projects, promoting and encourage the active use of programmes like Erasmus+ as a support tool for the promotion of active citizenship and pan-European debate.
