Through the project, we want to increase the activization of young people so as they will become citizens involved in democratic and social life. We want young people to tell us what is important to them, to participate in dialogue with decision-makers and in the life of the third sector, to have respect for voluntary activities, and to be more willing to engage in democratic processes related to social action, to know the importance of cross-sector networking and the results that can arise from it.
During the project, we want to create a space for dialogue between young people, youth organisations and other NGOs, schools, businesses with a social focus, and decision-makers involved in creating the third sector in our area. For the project, we want to invite experts – long-term social activists, but also ordinary volunteers acting locally. Greater awareness about the sector increases interest in matters that affect us, since many local citizens benefit from the activities of NGOs, or create them at some stage in their lives. The third sector at local level is an important element of building organisational structures at national or European level.
