Austria-wide roadshow with events on the topic “Opportunities and possibilities in the EU
On behalf of the European Commission Representation in Austria, IZ together with the network of Austrian youth information centres, started the “Roadshow of chances and opportunities for youths in the framework of EU mobility programmes and other EU policy areas”. From October 2018 until January 2019 events related to the topics “Chances and opportunities within the EU” and the European elections of 2019 took place in cooperation with the regional offices of the Austrian youth information centres. In this way, juveniles and young adults in Austria got an insight into the European Union and the way it influences our daily lives positively. There was a special focus on EU mobility programmes, Erasmus+ Youth in Action and the European Solidarity Corps as well as the opportunities related to democratic participation.
In the context of the project, info material on the EU elections of 2019 was compiled which was geared to the target group of young people.
Moreover, as a special focus, the homepage of the Austrian youth portal featured a poll check and a quiz about the EU elections of 2019. The EUandMe-campaign of the European Commission, as well as the campaign “diesmalwaehleich.eu” of the European Parliament were brought to the attention of the young target audience via social media.
