Culture and Creativity

The action aims to engage with young Europeans by creating curated online spaces that gather thought-provoking content around current affairs, empowering them to compare perspectives from across Europe and discuss and discover how their interests link to interests of young Europeans in other Member States, and to relevant EU initiatives. The aim is to address relevant topics of pan-European importance, and create an open, true, deep and constructive debate about recent and future life in Europe among young Europeans, using innovative formats on digital platforms, with the ultimate goal of creating greater awareness about European visions and realities, European values, ideas and decision-making processes so that they subsequently contribute to a more active civil society.

Expected impact includes:

  •  Increased availability of online information around European topics in different European languages, presented in engaging formats and through multiple viewpoints.
  • Daily, thought-provoking content around current affairs, through innovative cross-border editorial processes.
  • Greater awareness about decision-making processes.
  • Innovative and engaging discussions and events, that help young Europeans exchange views and discover ways to get involved in pan-European projects across language barriers.
  • Increased democratic engagement of youth across various social groups, language groups and age groups.
