This project was created in our concern about democracy in Europe upon decades of external and internal changes. We need to rethink the future and connect with our citizens – starting with youth.

The project was initiated by libraries in Poland (Gdansk), Belgium (Roeselare), the Netherlands (Middelburg) and Denmark (Herning). The project involved about 100 youngsters aged between 14-19 attending schools or high schools and recruited by open call or in cooperation with schools. This group reflected a width in gender, age, social, cultural and economic backgrounds, including youngsters with fewer opportunities.

THE PROJECT FOCUSED ON FOUR OBJECTIVES

Enhancing the democratic competences of youngsters 14-19 years old Making decision makers aware of the needs and thoughts of youngsters Empowering youngsters to find solutions to current local and European challenges. Using the public library as a framework for creating a European public opinion – starting with the youth.
