Centre for European Progression (CFEP)
The EUuntied concept is to provide constructive atmosphere for discussion about the future of Europe in an informal, well-balanced and open way. We organise events, help young people publish their ideas and share their opinions, promoting always social improvement based on rule of law and democracy.
There is a clear need to move further in developing our common Europe. Europe needs to advance in participatory democratic structures to be accountable to its citizens. European citizens’ actions and way of life have consequences. The inclusion of young people is crucial to build more democratic, inclusive and prosperous societies. Our project provides young Europeans the opportunity to decide on their own future through a genuine democracy that protects and develops them as political and social beings. We have to find a way to mobilize new political energies for a united Europe and change the point of young people’s view who question the existence of the EU. The people of Europe can only maintain their diversity of their national cultures by joining their forces and working together.
The result of this project is based on the representation of young people, with a focus on youth organizations, ‘Eurobubble workers’ and decision-makers’ engagement. We believe that this project will contribute to enhancing young people’s participation in decision-making and it leads to better decisions, since young people have unique experience about their situation. We assume that our project strengthens the understanding of the need for real democracy. As an outcome we support our participants to have their say in written means. By sharing their papers on our website and via social media we want to give their voice a boost about the social transformation and democratic renewal of EU. To promote young people’s participation in public life, we must promote their active citizenship.
• Innovative actions on open participation and engagement of young citizens to enable public authorities to involve them into decision-making processes
• Targeting the most relevant groups of young people and decision-makers (European Affairs, aged between 20 and 40)
• As the voice of young professionals will gain more publicity by our actions their attitude will change and their involvement in the European democratic development is going to increase
• Workshops, informal, open and direct debates with the presence of decision-makers and the active participation of the young people
• Digital means of communication to make our events as international as possible (webinars and e-conferences, twitter hashtags, etc.)
• Dissemination and exploitation of final project results and outcomes
