• Making young beneficiaries (directly and indirectly involved in the project) aware of the European institutions and, particularly, of how the European Commission works;
• Reinforcing their European identity and their comprehension and participation in the mechanisms of representative democracy;
• Increasing their understanding of the European social inclusion policy and making them think how to guarantee a welfare system that doesn’t leave aside disadvantaged groups, in a moment of persistent economic crisis;
• Making them face the issue of youth unemployment and suggest the European Union how to deal with it.
