CONTEXT The area of intervention is promotion of participation in the community you belong to. The need is to improve the way of conveying information, in order to reach all young people, both Italian and foreign, in an effective and easy way. BACKGROUND The project originates from the need expressed by the citizens to fully make use of the rights of citizenship and participation, to be informed on opportunities for institutions to reach them, that can facilitate their integration into social, civil, cultural and professional life and from the willingness of the institution to understand these necessities, even in an attempt to give concrete answers. The need for gathering, orientating, participating and training is basic and prioritized for teenagers and young people. Faced with an increasing level of technological communication there is an also increasing detachment of citizens from the community and public institutions, caused partly by the fact that the institutions use traditional means of communication, not in accordance to the once used nowadays. A significant proportion of young people, the so-called NEET, seems to be out of both school and work areas, representing an element of alarm, because of the high risk of being marginalized by the society of young people and being impossible to reach them with institutional communication channels.

EXPECTED RESULTS AND IMPACT The purpose of this project is not just to host voluntary participants, but also to contribute to spread the importance of Europe within the local community. For this reason, we will try as much as possible, to involve institutions, organizations and associations into the project activities, as well as the youth population of the city. We firmly believe that to reach positive effect of medium or long term period, holding the activity of promoting the EVS in high schools (which we have always tried to do) and involving of local media (press, radio, television) may constitute a sufficient multiplier effect, which can guarantee the desirable sustainability of project activities. Volunteers will be encouraged to maintain international contacts that will be established during the implementation of activities, in order to organize other European projects in the future.
