"Generation Europe: young policy makers" involves 12 international organizations and 60 participants, 48 young people and 12 decision makers/experts, who will meet during 4 days of meetings in Rome through 10 thematic tables to produce 10 legislative proposals on: 1. European Union 2. Education 3. Terrorism 4. Cyber security 5. Sports 6. Culture 7. Lobbying and political communication 8. Economic Development 9. Environment and Ecology 10.
Erasmus Plus and young "Generation Europe: young policy makers" aims to introduce and develop "young European decision makers" who participate pro-actively in democratic life as stakeholders and representatives of youth policies. During the project "young future European decision makers" will have the opportunity to express themselves and propose European legislative initiatives to improve their skills, attitudes and transversal competences.
The project aims also to create moments of aggregation and decisionmaking places to encourage legislative innovation among youth policies, as they are able to increase, improve and update the legislation through a better regulation on youth issues. During the meeting held in Rome the 10 legislative proposals will be formulated through the use of non-formal education, with activities such as: tandem cultural exchange (based on the tandem languange method); intercultural dialogue and comparison; works for transnational thematic tables; ice-breaker on common values and service orientation; innovative legislative drafting and legislative talent show; finally, the simulation of an alternative decision-making process; pitch presentation and plenary common sessions.
The legislative process of the projects will be check through the "Legislative Train", a digital version of the progress of the legislation created in "Generation Europe", an example of what the European Union has done, in order to check participants' proposal. The Legislative Train is a tool that need to understand the legislative phases of the proposal, not only the presentation of the text but also the timing and local events, the activities ex post, the communications of each participant.
The Train will contain this following section: "departures", "on hold", "expected arrivals", "arrived" and "derailded", ie the phases of the Generation Europe bill. We can potentially anticipate that: - 30% of participants within 12 months from the end of the project will be actively engage in the democratic and social life of their country, through social promotion associations, non-profit or nonprofit associations, other associations, voluntary work, party registration, membership in committees students, membership in trade unions. - 25% of participants within 12 months of the end of the project will take part in other Erasmus Plus initiatives or actively collaborate with the partner organizations involved. - 80% of the participants will regularly vote in elections to the European Parliament, exercising European citizenship and demonstrating European civic sense. - 10% of participants within 12 months of the end of the project will promote a local event or an activity for the dissemination of their own proposal, and they will continue to conduct actions for the promotion and support of the proposed law. - 45% of participants within 6 months, will insert a positive self-assessment in their CVs with respect to English speaking and writing skills, and also will also attach or insert their Youth Pass in their professional presentation. - each organization will present within 12 months from the end of the project at least 2 KA3 projects and at least 1 KA1/KA2 project, improving their design skills and willingness to participate deeply in the Erasmus Plus program. - the project partners and the young participants, will organize two or three local events or other activities within 12 months to promote not only the results of the project, but also the proposed legislation in several sectors.
We can anticipate that proposals will reach:
• At least 6 European municipalities, within 18 months of the end of the project.
• At least 3 regional authorities, within 18 months of the end of the project.
• At least 4 stakeholders or representatives of the third sector, within 18 months from the end of the project.
• At least 5 other non-profit associations or socio-cultural promotion organizations within 6 months.
