About the project
Members of the consortium researched and identified that there is a need of young people across the EU to better understand EU, its values, policies and institutions. For this reason, youth knowledge and active citizenship must be increased, and necessary tools to ensure youth political engagement should be provided.
The Applicant Mano Europa and its 3 partners, through the Y2EU project, will develop and promote solutions to encourage youth active citizenship through inclusive European Parliament simulations, and active participation non-formal education activities to the target groups and wider audience.
European Parliament simulation in Italy
On Wednesday 29 November, at the “Don Mazza” University College in Padua, Italy, 15 young people gathered in Parliament to simulate a day in the European Parliament! Each represented a parliamentarian and took part in the discussions of his own parliamentary group and his own Commission. Three legislative proposals of fundamental importance were discussed: the gender pay gap, the reform of the internal voting method and the liberalization of the digital market.
