2009 Funded project sheet
The project "Europe needs you" ("Yourope Needs YOU!") was designed and planned with members of the European Students Forum, AEGEE. This project aims to enable academics from across Europe to become active members of society. The workshops help to deepen the understanding of European issues and expose the opportunities offered by Europe in encouraging students to use them by the methods of informal training. This project was developed by an international team at a training course entitled "European School 2" focused on the development of projects at European level. During their research, the instigators of the project realized that the courses often portray Europe as an artificial concept and reduced to its history and its geographic boundaries. And lack of education or informal interactive exacerbates the lack of interest shown by academics vis-à-vis Europe, as well as issues and European values. To remedy this situation, the project Yourope Needs YOU! "Is aimed at university students wishing to share their knowledge by conducting workshops in schools and provides training of trainers. The first training courses were organized in Germany and the Netherlands and three others will follow in Poland, Spain and Turkey. Using a brochure prepared by the project team and summarizing points of interest in Europe and the EU, multiculturalism or identity and European values, while showing the way forward to organize a workshop, the participants trained in the field by experts, are dedicated to run workshops in schools. The first workshop was held in December 2008 in a high school Gostyn, Poland. Europe and its opportunities were presented to Polish students and thirty French students participating in an exchange. These adolescents have shown a keen interest in the subject and the methods used and appreciated this change in their program. The project team can now count on people from seven different nationalities, citizens of the EU or not, working on a voluntary basis to share their vision for a tolerant and active with the students.
