The ACTIon project brings together six partners from four EU countries (BE, BG, DE, GR) and one non-EU country (MK) with proven expertise in the areas of education, (digital) participation and network cooperation. Our goal is to promote the formation of democracy and active e-participation through the approach of youth role models.

To this end, ACTIon will adapt two innovative models of good practice that use offline and online training methods and test them in school and extracurricular educational settings in the partner countries.

The participation of young people from socially disadvantaged regions, young people from ethnic minorities/Roma and young migrants/migrants, who experience the greatest barriers to social inclusion in the areas of health and education, the labour market and public life are central to ACTIon. The expected impact is that the active and conscious digital participation of young people will help to strengthen the resources of young disadvantaged people (empowerment approach).
