Work, life, money - what else?  What really matters to the European youth.

What does really matter in your life?
Do we as European citizens have common values?
How do young people live in other European countries?

The European Union is going through its so far biggest crisis, which threatens the existence of the Union. The base on which Europe is built on – common values, human rights and the solidarity between the states – is questioned, marginalized and openly fought. Together we accept this challenge in the upcoming Erasmus+ Youth Exchange and we are going to offer our participants orientation and communicate them European values.

Our priority is to make those values accessible and relevant to you. Our focus is not only on European values and human rights but also on your personal values and goals (family, education, career). We want to know what really matters to YOU - the European youth. Developing key competences within the youth exchange will not only have a positive influence on your chances at the job market but will also strengthen your self-confidence. Take your chance and benefit from the intercultural exchange, experience Europe and become a active citizen by shaping our European society!
