We'd like to introduce you to the people behind the project and the EYCA Youth Panel.
The EYCA Youth Panel is composed of seven young, bright and active people from all over Europe. We all come from various backgrounds and stand for very different causes. We want to reach the uninvolved youth, foster their passion about the pressing issues of today, and provide them with the tools to participate.
We are doing this through the #ISTANDFOR campaign which involves online and offline participation opportunities for young people according to their interest and their potential. These opportunities are organised in five thematic months: Human Rights, EU and young people, Environment, Wellbeing and Local Democracy. The project includes a variety of activities in which young people can participate to get motivated and to learn about today's issues and how to tackle them. These range from online challenges to face-to-face meetings such as workshops, debates, round table discussion and travelling with Interrail.
