CIAO: Citizens Into Agora Organizations

Promoting democratic values and active citizenship through the development of individuals’ social, intercultural and civic skills.

Project Number: 2016-1-FR01-KA204-023999

Funded by: Erasmus+        Duration: 01/12/2016-30/12/2018   


Challenge

Europe has been facing several challenges over the last years (economic recession, terrorist attacks, refugee crisis) which have affected individuals, making them less tolerant and more reluctant to institutions. Also, the impotence of EU institutions to respond effectively to the needs of people has increased the doubt to the European integration and to the values of respect of human rights, freedom, democracy and equality. In such a challenging period the main goal is to avoid a depletion of democratic ideals that underpin the EU and democratic countries, increasing at the same time the feeling of EU citizenship.

Innovation

Project CIAO aims at promoting democratic values and active citizenship through the development of individuals’ social, intercultural and civic skills.

Action

The training aimed at building, monitoring, evaluating and possibly refining social democracy devices. The main topics were citizenship, individual responsibility, active citizenship and cultural diversity.
