Two seminars, various opinions, more inspiration to take action!
What: “Beyond EU Citizenship” - GEF seminar with support of FYEG1
Where: Paris, France
When: 19-22 May, 2011
When to apply: NOW! Deadline – 6th March
EU Roma that get expelled from France or Italy. Populists blaming Europe for blocking restrictive immigration. The Polish plumber that has the right to work in Germany, but not the right for social security. And what about the right to work of the German plumber? Students and businessmen traveling without borders, uneducated people feeling lost. Who benefits, and who suffers?
What do you think about this? Do you think that European citizenship is a vague concept? And what about minorities? What do greens think? What can we do?
Green European Foundation (GEF) with the support of Federation of Young European Greens (FYEG) organizes two seminars in order to educate and find solutions around the problematic questions of the EU citizenship concept. The first out of two - "Beyond EU citizenship" - will be hosted by the local organization in Paris, France, from 19 to 22 of May.
The seminar intends to focus on:
European identity (in the conservative and green variants)
the concept of European citizenship and its future
European minorities (with special focus on Roma (biggest european minority) and migrants)
inclusion of the minorities into the political processes
regional minority-realities in Europe
All of these questions will be explained and learned during the academic sessions, brainstorming, role games and group discussions.
The main aims of the seminar are to:
Go beyond the current concept of the European citizenship, show the green point of view
Reach solutions for minorities inclusion (with a special focus on the Roma minority)
Enhance Youth participation in the political debates on discrimination
