EU YouTH Website: Why We Found This Web Site?

Firstly, we believe in Copenhagen’s criteria. Check the below quotation.

Membership requires that the candidate country has achieved stability of institutions guaranteeing democracy, the rule of law, human rights, respect for and protection of minorities, the existence of a functioning market economy, as well as the capacity to cope with competitive pressure and market forces within the Union. Membership presupposes the candidate’s ability to take on the obligations of membership, including adherence to the aims of political, economic, and monetary union.

Secondly, the EU Values. Check the quotation.

The European Union’s fundamental values are respected for human dignity and human rights, freedom, democracy, equality, and the rule of law. These values unite all the member states – no country that does not recognize these values can belong to the Union.

The main goal of the European Union is to defend these values in Europe. And promoting peace and the wellbeing of the citizens. For its part, the European Parliament seeks to ensure that these values are realized in the EU legislation.

The EU member states are pluralistic. Nobody may be discriminated against; instead, people and government representatives must respect others and be tolerant. Everybody must be treated fairly. Minority rights must be respected. Equality between men and men is promoted. Responsibility must be shared.

The European Union works for social equality. It develops social security and tries to protect the weakest. It seeks to prevent social exclusion and discrimination.

EU Youth Website: Projects

The European Union has significant opportunities for young people. You can prepare a youth project related to your local problem. And offer it to your country’s National Agency. Meanwhile, if accepted, the National Agency will send your grant to your account (personal if you are an informal youth group or organisation account if you are an organisation.) The budget will differ according to;

  • The number of people involved in your project.
  • The number of activity days.
  • The transportation budget (varies according to the distance from the participating country’s place to the activity place.)

You will spend this grant on your participants’ accommodation/food, education, and local transportation. However, the remaining amount after these expenses is yours. Moreover, you have the opportunity to do this without any organisation. In conclusion, the EU aims to foster more actors to work in the youth field. In addition to the massive amount of earnings for a young person, the learning you get from the project will increase your chance of entering the labour market enormously more than your peers. However, Financial gain pales compared to the value of the skills you will learn.
