Youth participation in the European Union’s civic life is essential for building a strong and engaged civil society. When young people actively take part in community activities, volunteering, and civil organizations, they contribute to the vibrancy of local communities and the broader European society. Their involvement not only enhances social cohesion but also brings fresh perspectives and innovative ideas to the table, helping to address complex issues and promote positive change. The EU encourages youth participation through various programs and initiatives that emphasize civic education, leadership development, and active citizenship. By fostering a culture of civic engagement among its youth, the EU ensures that its values of democracy, tolerance, and solidarity are upheld and passed on to the next generation, strengthening the foundations of a united Europe.

Youth in EU needs tools, networking, best practices and competences to realize their potential. In partner countries, we have identified that youth are in general reluctant to engage in a collaboration outside local environment and connect more, share ideas and information via experience exchange, which is a basis for the COHERENT project.

The project’s main objective is to increase youth participation in civic life related to the youth goals, to foster cross-border mobility and increase youth cooperation in projects.

The COHERENT project anticipates a range of both short-term and long-term outcomes, including improved competences in democratic values, solidarity, sustainability, and digital skills.

Young people are expected to enhance their decision-making abilities and gain confidence, reducing the risk of social exclusion and poverty. Additionally, the project aims to boost enthusiasm and motivation for personal growth and civic engagement, offering opportunities to connect with organizations, decision-makers, and peers. Improved language skills and cultural diversity are also expected outcomes, contributing to an increased interest in new professional areas and expanding employment opportunities.

In essence, the COHERENT project seeks to foster holistic personal and professional development, along with active civic participation.
