Learn more about nEU Citizenship
The “nEU Citizenship” project aims to educate participants on civic engagement through the lens of sustainable development and digitization. Through practical and on-the-ground activities, the project will activate Greek youth to become civically engaged and serve as multipliers of European priorities and the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) on local, national, and regional levels.
It also revitalizes public dialogue amongst youth, decision-makers, CSOs, and other key stakeholders from relevant public, private, and third-sector entities. The project will last 18 months, starting from March 2022, and the consortium includes Ecogenia and Youthmakers Hub from Greece. It is a Youth Participation Activity under the Key Action 1 of the Erasmus+ programme, funded by the National Agency of Greece.
