Idea Sketch


Idea pitch

Our goal is to inspire young people to take over social responsibility in their home countries by giving them the practical tools and by jointly developing values which provide orientation in combating social problems on the ground. The European ideals of peace, solidarity and unity are supposed to manifest in the young people’s daily lives.They are multipliers for their local networks, which serve the purpose of developing a vision of Europe and accepting responsibility for the "Project Europe"

Where will your idea take place?

Budapest, Hungary

Why does Europe need your idea?

The participants of the Youth Meeting will learn ways of a cross cultural, respectful and tolerant living together. A meeting of young people who share similar opinions will give all participants a deeper understanding of Europe.

What is your impact?

The goal are young, engaged people with strong and well-rounded personalities who are capable of taking social responsibility for people in need. Those young people will engage in civil society and initiate their own concrete social projects in their home countries staying connected with one another

How do you get there?

By directly encountering socially disadvantaged individuals in social hotspots, the participants are able to refer those experiences to the social situation in their countries. In cooperation with the international performing arts group GenVerde, the participants will prepare a musical on migration experience in 3-day workshops. The results will then be presented to the public. Both methods are an important contribution to the participants’ personal development and the project’s success.

What is your story?

Europe is facing major challenges. We should do all we can to support the younger generation who will shape the future of our continent tomorrow, shouldn’t we? Europe needs a "departure of the youth" and we are proud to contribute to it with our European network meeting.

Who are you doing it for?

We want to reach students age 16-20, who want to get involved in social projects and take responsibility for a fair society and who identify with the Europan ideals. Our stakeholders are social institutions in Budapest and the Dicastery for promoting integral human development (Vatican).

What do you need from the Advocate Europe community?

We would like to receive feedback on our methodological approach. We would as well be grateful for advice on possible other stakeholders in the CEE region.
