Final document “Charter of Responsible Citizenship”
Being a “Responsible Citizen” means to be capable of measuring actions, facts and events with a deep involvement (in terms of interest and active participation) in all social issues.
“A Responsible European Citizenship” is based on an integrated concept of citizenship, which has a critical eye, is tolerant and respectful of different cultures and traditions and open to dialogue, has attention for enviromental matters, is concerned and aware of the events which occur domestically and abroad, in search of peace and social cohesion development and well-being, recognizing the wisdom of preceding generations, taking care and acting in favour of the disadvantaged, not forgetting the importance of the family in the education of basic values such as liberty, democracy, solidarity, respect for human rights, for fundamental freedoms and for the role of law.

EU Programme Europe for CitizensThe Europe for Citizens will launch debates and reflexions among university students on how to build and promote a socially active and responsible European citizenship and what should be their common elements (ie:volunteering, intergenerational dialogue, democratic participation, intercultural dialogue). To ensure an informed and interactive reflexion, the youngsters will organise a wide consultation among young people, parents, representatives of social organisations, volunteers, decision-makers.
The Project: "Promoting a Responsible European Citizenship"The project is primarily addressed to young (mainly university students), who are the future rulers and actors of the European growth. At present, little awareness of the European project and a consequent poor engagement of the young population in its development is acknowledged (ie: the low percentage of voters in the European Parliament elections).
Expected impact of the projectReinforced sense of belonging to Europe through deepening the reflection on the social and civic/democratic engagement aspects of the European citizenship with a view of creating a common feeling of responsibility, especially among the young students.
