ABOUT THE PROJECT

SOLIDART intends to create a durable cooperation network in the field of Solidarity in Times of Crisis. It will involve young citizens of 8 different European towns who are living the Crisis in specific different ways. These youngsters supported by their local authorities will initiate a creative and participative path where they will develop innovative actions to analyze and debate about current EU challenging situations. SOLIDART also intends to involve youngsters in order to sensitize them with their local problems as European citizens, encouraging their social inclusion. 

It is demonstrated that youngsters use different ways of communication and expression than senior citizens. New ICTs and artistic expressions catch youth attention and they are able to canalize youth opinion and social ideas. For this reason, SOLIDART will use creative and artistic methods in order to create a multicultural debate and reflection where these methods will be the expression ways. After these activities, all conclusion will be collected in a Handbook where there will demonstrated that youngsters are capable to express their own ideas and point of view through these innovative activities.

This project SOLIDART: Network for the youth debate about the solidarity in crisis times, through creativity and art, has been funded with support from the European Commission.
