Y-AIDE project is aimed at strengthening a real sense of European citizenship, developing activities aimed at the participation of young people in democratic life and achieving specific objectives aimed at:

  • Providing young people from two different European countries with the opportunity to participate in the development of society and of the Union;
  • Reinforcing their sense of belonging to the EU and encouraging their participation in the democratic life in Europe;
  • Promoting their mobility within Europe and developing intercultural learning activities ;
  • Supporting their spirit of initiative;
  • Promoting the participation of disadvantaged young people and of equality between men and women;
  • Offering opportunities of informal and non-formal learning in the context of a European dimension.

Moreover, the project will promote, among the young people, the acquisition of those skills essential to active citizenship. This should increase relevant knowledge, reinforce motivation, develop capacities and provide practical experience of being an active citizen i.e. having the autonomy to develop and experiment with their own ideas and identities.
