We have chosen FR,GR,ES,HU because the population includes a high number of citizens with nationalistic and Euroskeptic views. W alredy work with all the partners tha can intervene at national level.
With our concept of dramatized trial we aim to promote the dialogue between citizens and understanding of the European Union’s role and range of action. Citizens meet with artists, lawyers, and experts on European Union to co-create a mock trial on Europe’s major issues (immigration, mobility, agriculture, health). Through the public representation we try to make Eurosceptic questions their ideas and take action.

European democracy is closely linked to the sense of justice and fairness. We want get the youngsters involved in the project and the spectators to question themselves, to hear different points of view, to understand the EU challenges at the moment that their vote is requested.
Justice and Europe are often wrongly considered inaccessible and technical.We expect to prove the opposite! We mix Art and Justice so that the European citizens take the keys of debate.
We hope that « Trail Europe » concept will continue to expand independently through our dissemination tools.
We mix Art and Justice, to regain the people's desire for Europe.
Young people helped by European, judicial and artistic experts will work together during several days to co-create a mock trial. “The trial” will be performed in public with real guests (local politicians, European experts) who are invited to testify "to the stand”. A best practice book "Create your own trial" will be designed and disseminated. A web page including the videos of all the trials by thematic will be created.
For 20 years now our association develops projects having as aim to speak about citizenship using art and participation as a tool. With "Trail Europe" we want to experiment a new form of debate, to answer to the disinterest or even rejection from our citizens of European issues.
The main targets are young European citizens with a particular focus on Euro-sceptics, Euro-indifferent, Europhobes. For the theatre workshop (30 youngsters/country), the “trial” presented for 100 persons/country,5 organisations/country implicated, 1000 persons touched through the web dissemination.
If any information given is not clear, if you have any idea how to further develop and disseminate the concept of dramatized trial. We are open for collaboration with other social innovators.
