Considered the alarmingly low turnout rate in EU elections, the project aims to restore electoral faith among EU citizens. It will address the three main causes for low electoral participation found in collaboration with the project partners:
– lack of interest and knowledge of the democratic workings of the EU
– mistrust towards EU institutions
– lack of sense of belonging to Europe.
The project will be structured in 4 main international events.
