AKA (Awareness, Knowledge, Action) Active Citizens is a Citizens, Equality, Rights and Values (CERV) funded project carried out by a consortium comprising 8 partners and coordinated by SOLIDAR Foundation. The project aims at promoting the democratic participation and engagement at the EU level of young citizens with vulnerable backgrounds in 8 countries (Belgium, Croatia, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Portugal and Spain).
Through 24 activities, which are Global Citizenship Education-based and will be carried out in 8 local Community Centres, the youth involved will be empowered through Awareness and Knowledge resulting in Action for tackling social challenges for a Just Transition as well as structural inequalities in our society in a collective and transnational manner.
This will be reflected in the final booklet (8 languages) of methodologies for fostering social action and democratic engagement to which all partners and participants will contribute. Building upon the local dialogues with policymakers across the 8 countries, the AKA project will culminate in a final European Debate at which all young leaders will meet and discuss with policymakers at the European level the themes touched upon by the project.
The consortium is coordinated by SOLIDAR Foundation and comprises of:
