Youth Dice: The Project

Proposta Logo YD 5cThe Youth dice Project is co-financed by the European Union in the contest of the Youth in Action Program. It involves 246 young people of which 123 are disvataged.

Project main targets

The major deficiencies to be tackled by the partners are the negative consequences from the collapse of the financial markets which have led to a truly alarming youth unemployment crisis in nearly all European countries. Therefore, the proposed broad transnational partnership between civil society and youth organisations from 27 European countries (DE, IT, PT, CZ, BE, HU, SK, SE, RO, LT, ES, FR, IE, HR, AT, CH, PL, UK, BG, GR, NL, DK, LV, MT, SI, NO, TR), aims to provide youth with new opportunities for non-formal learning and community participation.

A key result will be the mobilisation and empowerment of young people in the EU to become driving forces in their own personal and professional development contributing to social cohesion and inclusive growth.

Activities will help to develop and encourage their desire to engage a leading role in society and also provide the appropriate knowledge anchored in solid ethical values and a culture of sharing. Young people will be motivated and empowered to bring in their own innovative contribution for a positive change in society.
