About the training course

The training course on European Citizenship aims to support the professional development of youth workers and youth leaders by extending their critical understanding of European Citizenship, exploring and experiencing its potential and by enabling them to recognise and integrate European Citizenship in their youth work.


The training course puts into practice priority 1 (European Citizenship) of the Youth in Action programme, by aiming to:

  • To critically explore the meaning, relevance and implications of European citizenship in youth work in all its dimensions;
  • To promote and facilitate the active use of programmes and structures in support of youth work on European Citizenship, including Youth in Action;
  • To experiment and explore the potential of European Citizenship for active democratic change in society;
  • To associate the participants with the current discourse on European Citizenship (its concepts, formal meanings and expressions)
  • To exemplify the connection between European Citizenship, Human Rights and Democracy.


The training course is open to 25 participants  (youth workers, youth leaders, project managers) from the following countries and regions: Belgium – FR, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, EASTERN EUROPE AND CAUCASUS (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, Russian Federation, Ukraine), Estonia, Finland, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovenia, SOUTH-EAST EUROPE (Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, Kosovo), Spain, Switzerland, United Kingdom.

      If there is no National Agency in Georgia, you can try to contact directly SALTO and ask them about details. Contact form you can find on the SALTO website.
