EU information campaigns for young people

In its role as a provider of information, the European Commission, DG X, wishes to promote information campaigns on the European Union targeted at young people. It is therefore introducing an activity for young Europeans intended to support initiatives with a European dimension.

For 1995 the objective of the action aimed at young people will be:

- To develop youth's awareness of the creation of a People's Europe;
- To provide young people with information on the European Union in general, including its institutions and policies.

The proposed action will cover information on Community topics likely to be of interest to young people and falling within the Commission's activities (information on the history and workings of the European institutions, Union citizenship, civil rights, common policies, the future of European integration, etc.).

The Commission will support a limited number of youth information projects relating to the European Union, its institutions and achievements, and the European situation in general.

Proposals for projects can be submitted by public or private organizations, institutions, groups and associations in the Member States. The Commission will draw up a list of selected projects, provide financial assistance, receive interim and final reports and publicize the results.

Only projects which are innovative and involve at least three Member States will be taken into consideration. The aid granted to these projects will not exceed 50% of total expenses incurred. Projects will be selected by 31 July 1995.

This action is aimed mainly at the structures of the Member States, governmental as well as non-governmental, and also to the professionals operating in this field.
