The Focus Area European Citizenship has the aim to empower young people to become active and critical European citizens by educating them on the diversity of European cultures and by enabling them to take an active role in shaping the European project. This is achieved thanks to organization of thematic conferences on political and cultural topics throughout Europe beyond the EU countries as well, publication of booklets to help organize educational trips to the EU institutions and obtain a traineeship there, and strengthening collaboration with the EU bodies within the framework of pan-European projects such as European Year of Cultural Heritage and other NGOs.
