“nEU Citizenship” is an Erasmus+ programme under the Key Action1- Youth Participation Activities. It is a project focused on activating Greek youth’s civic engagement in order for them to serve as multipliers of European priorities and the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals on local, national, and regional levels. Through a series of online, phygital, and in-person activities, the project aims to equip Greek youth (18 to 28 y.o.) with the tools and skills to act on sustainable development, civic engagement, and EU priorities, through the lens of sustainable development and digitization. The main scope of this project will take place in the remote areas of Dorida, located in Central Greece, and Chania, in Crete. Through the organized activities, the participants will learn about topics concerning “civic engagement”; what it means, how someone can be more engaged, and how this ethos can be instilled into their daily life. The 18-month project is a collaboration between Youhtmakers Hub and Ecogenia.
