Jeunes Européens - France
Youth talks to Youth !
Europe cannot only be built by technocrats, Europe will not be built without the consent of its citizens. Young, we are the one who will have to live within the EU framework, and we are the one that institutions do not know how to involve in political participation. Europe does need that youth speaks to youth and experience European debate in order to get involved in the European integration.
Europe needs to be lived by its citizens. Creating a pan-European media where the public (youth) is the contributor, is a way for young to experience European exchange and to open their mind. This project participates in the creation of the European generation, active, tolerant and respective of other cultures.
As we want to involve more and new young people from all across Europe in the debate, a successful outcome would be :
1. Reaching more than 250 000 readers a month.
2. Increasing by 2 the number of contributors.
3. Increasing by 1,5 the number of regular contributors.
4. Developing the partnership with other medias, republish and getting republished to facilitate the circulation of ideas, organize a communal event with other European medias.
5. Distributing 15 000 printed version of Le Taurillon.
