"Be European" invites you to join a Youth Exchange where you'll explore the essence of EU democracy and active citizenship. This project is a way to understand and discuss the European Union's democratic processes and collaborate with peers from across Europe, gaining insights into civic engagement across countries. You will be learning from each other through guided workshops, and explore what it means to be a European.

This Youth Exchange is aimed at youngsters aged 18-25 years old. We are also looking for a group leader, this person can be older.
