CESIE is urgently looking for:

  • 1 participant from Malta
  • 1 participant from Israel

for the Euromed at work for active citizenship – EWAC training course (Action 3.1 of the Youth in Action Programme), that will be held in Palermo, Italy, from 3th (arrival day) to 11th (departure day) of November 2012.


Euromed at work for active citizenship – EWAC is a Training Course (TC) that will be held in Palermo (Italy) during 8 days. The project involves 16 partners & 40 participants that will take part in the TC (youth trainers/workers, peer educators, volunteers, youth with fewer opportunities) from:

Italy, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Greece, Lithuania, Norway, Estonia, Slovenia, Malta, Turkey, Tunisia, Algeria, Egypt, Palestine, Israel and Morocco.

The project’s inspiration derives from the recognition that there is a close link between the current economic crisis and the socio-political transformations in EUROMED countries, so all dimensions of civic engagement (active citizenship, volunteering and participation) are increasingly placed at centre of the national and international agendas, leading many countries to adopt specific strategies or policies directed towards increasing civic engagement. EWAC aims to address these issues from young people’s perspective, by stimulating them to use the different opportunities of participation that YiA and other programs offer, as a way to tackle unemployment and social challenges.

MAIN ACTIVITIES: theoretical presentations by trainers, active debate with all participants, presentations of local contexts by participants, non-formal education techniques & games, 2 days artistic workshops & artistic exhibition, creation of new projects by participants.


3th (arrival date) – 11th (departure date) November 2012

Total nights in Palermo: 8

(4 in Baida Convent and 4 in the hostel in Ballarò)


Participants can be youth trainers, workers, peer educators, volunteers, youth with fewer opportunities, or people which might be interested in the Training Course.


TRAVEL COSTS: 70% of the travel costs will be reimbursed (the 30% must be financed by the participant)


100% covered by the project.
