“Understanding Europe” was born out of the need to solve a problem that affects the youth in the Romanian society, as well as in the European one, more specifically, the low level of consciousness they possess in regards to what it means to be an active European citizen. The project desires to promote the involvement of young ones in society and to familiarize them with the idea of being a Member State of the European Union. It also aligns with the mission of our organization, which is to “help develop the civil society in a European context, thru supporting the youth’s initiative for attaining performance in a competitive environment”. Moreover, the project also has the purpose of raising the social responsibility of high school youngsters in a European context and to convince the young people to be an active component of society, thus leading, thru involvement and participation in public affairs, to the growth of the European civil society. Students must become aware of the fact that they play an important part in the European society and a more appropriate training and education is required.
