PROJECT SUMMARY: Youth ON Again is originated from the need of young people to become more actively involved in local and regional life as young citizens, as youth participation and active involvement of young people in local and regional life are one of the key concerns in the European integration process and is one of the most important steps towards healthy societies. Youth active citizenship means young people getting involved in their local communities and democracy at all levels, from towns to cities to nationwide activity. Active citizenship can be as small as a campaign to clean up your street or as big as youth workers and leaders educating young people about democratic values, skills and participation.
