Our overall objective is to identify how young Europeans conceive a good European citizen. But how do we accomplish this? In the video you will find our ideas. Benefits for you, your school and more info can be found below.
We are convinced that young Europeans have an incredibly high potential for ideas when it comes to their conceptions of the future of Europe and, in particular, the role of citizens within the European Union. It is precisely this potential that we are trying to unleash. In our project, students take on the role of researchers. They collect data on European Citizenship and draft recommendations on how they imagine an "informed, active and responsible citizen". In doing so, they will expand and reflect their perspectives on individual European Citizenship. Also, they will provide insights into their everyday lives that can serve as decision-making basis for policymakers and other stakeholders in education. In order to make this process as innovative, exciting and interesting as possible and to come to sound, logical results, we rely on the combination of Design Thinking and Participatory Research.
