Idea Sketch | Proposal


Idea pitch

Let's create an atmosphere of trust, mutual understanding and cooperation among progressive young leaders from Greater Europe (the EU, the CIS, the Balkans) in order to build a better future on our continent for the generations to come!

Where will your idea take place?

Russia, France, Germany

Why does Europe need your idea?

Our initiative comes when there is little talk about a united Europe due to political controversies, but we have the courage to look to the future.

Our initiative embraces all the European countries without exceptions and crosses artificial borders. Our initiative is flexible and is able to embrace other ideas and initiatives from all the social spheres.

Together, we will ensure security and sustainable economic development in all the countries of Greater Europe.

What is your impact?

We will have created a greater network of young people from across the continent, who have learnt about each other, made valued friendships and who will continue to work together implementing their own projects.

Participants from our forum, conferences and meetings would be able to say that they learnt to become open-minded, positive, welcoming and curious about their peers from different nations in the continent. They will have learnt that the media and 'bigger politics' do not reflect on to the whole picture and that stereotypes and prejudices must be overcome, if our continent is to be prosperous, peaceful and sustainable in the future!

How do you get there?

1) An annual forum. In 2015 it will be held in Paris in July.
At the forum participants work together with professional trainers to design cultural or sociopolitical projects, which draw on the values of our organisation.

2) Implementation of projects.
The projects are implemented throughout the year and allow the participants to continue to work together and build their relationships with each other.

3) Conferences.
During the year we hold conferences and meetings at top European and Russian universities with distinguished public figures who share our ideas and help us to increase impact of our activity. This also helps us to find most talented active leaders who join our Association.
