The"Active Citizenship Laboratory" is an eight (9) days training course that will be realized by USB from 20-28/05/2018 in Thessaloniki, Greece. The training bring together 28 Youth Workers, Young Leaders, trainers and staff of civil society organisations from 11 countries of Europe with different cultural and social background to integrate and learn through non- formal education about the paramount importance of youth participation in society and the development of the European citizenship.
The main objective is to educate and motivate the youth to participate actively in social, political and democratic life not only in their society but in Europe as well, so as to embrace more the European values. An active citizen may build a better society not only for themselves but for everyone else as they motivate more people to participate and care about the social and economic life. Being an active citizen is not limited to local level but it goes even further, to the European one.
