Année européenne du développement: Affichons les couleurs !
Today, nationalistic tendencies are growing everywhere and it is urgent to recall the European values and to remind Europeans of the need to work together.
Too many negative images of the EU are conveyed by some media and it is important to help young people discover the European policy for development and solidarity.
Helping the European citizen to develop a reflective attitude is a safeguard for democracy.
This poster competition could be transferred throughout Europe.
We would like to receive about 2000 posters and texts.
We want to awaken young people's awareness of their European belonging.
We hope that a year from now they will remember how their involvement in this project was an opportunity for discovering some aspects of European policies which are not very readily mentioned in the media.
We hope that they will understand better how lucky they are to be living in the EU and how important it is to preserve this "common good".
We hope that when they grow up and come of age, they will not forget to go and vote in the European elections.
-We have already advertised this poster competition on our website.
-It will be published on Facebook and Twitter and also in our monthly Newslettern which is sent out to 1500 subscribers.
-The flyer will be distributed via the "rectorats" at regional and national levels.
