The international meeting of the project “Rights, Camera, Action! Partecipation and Democracy in Europe” took place in Cagliari, from 19th to 25th February.
The meeting involved thirty-six young people from 6 different countries: Greece, Portugal, Italy, Slovenia, Estonia and Croatia.
The plan of activities was structured so as to connect the practical aspect with the educational, formative one.
In the first six days all of the activities were focused on mutual knowledge, brainstorming and exchanging of interests, and also on the analysis of the concept of democracy; the second part of the meeting was dedicated to group working and videos filming.
Young participants recently involved in an experience in their local community have imagined, directed and created a promotional spot to promote the concept of democracy and the active participation of young people.
The scenes were filmed on the streets of the main historical areas of the city.
During the week, all the participants, along with the local responsible of Associazione Studenti per la Città, visited the Regional Government of Sardegna. They have also visited the Civic Palace of the city, in via Roma. After that they had a meeting with Enrico Lobina, a young member of the municipality council who talked to the participants about his experience as young politician engaged in the local delegation.
The whole day was dedicated to the visit of local institutions and ended in the palace of the Province Council. Here, an exciting debate animated our afternoon, thanks also to the participation of the Youth Council President of Cagliari Province, Pisano Moreno, who talked of his experience in the highest body of the youth delegation, alongside being established in a project of the Youth in Action Program.
