EU offers great opportunities for young people around Europe through multiple programmes and initiatives such as: Erasmus+ projects, European Solidarity Corps Opportunities, DiscoverEU and more! Still, many young people report low levels of knowledge of the EU and its functions, they feel that they do not receive enough information about it and do not know how citizens can participate in the various programmes. On the other hand, even though young people generally support the EU, there are increasing levels of Euro-scepticism within society in general. For this reason, during the 6th cycle of the EU “Youth Dialogue – Youth in Europe: What’s next?” which took place in 2017/2018 with young people from all over Europe, 11 European Youth Goals were developed, to identify the main challenges that affect young people’s lives and contribute to realising their vision.
VISYON project was designed in this particular framework, with the specific goal to Engage, Connect and Empower young people across Europe by equipping them with a stronger sense of belonging to the European society, thus turning them into active citizens with highly important skills for the 21st century, such as media literacy and digital content creation. VISYON (Values, Ideas and Stories from Youth ON stage) is a European Youth Together project.
