Research by NINAMedia in 2016 showed that a very small percentage of young people is actively involved in the creation of cultural content, and that a large number of those who have declared that culture is not interested in them, and therefore are not sufficiently informed about the offers.
The goal of the project “ Better with Culture – Youth for Culture” is to get closer to the youth with the culture and educational institutions through the European Youth Card, to expand horizons about the awareness of the creativity of young people and to offer new discounts and benefits in this sphere so that young people could enjoy in these fields with more benefits. The focus of the project is that young people are animated, encouraged and motivated by:
- active participation,
- developing intelligent values,
- moral potentials and interests,
in order to form themselves in a complete and capable person.
Within the project, a minimum of 20 workshops will be realized in secondary schools in the following municipalities of Belgrade: Zvezdara, Stari grad, Vožvovac, Palilula, Savski venac, Vračar, Čukarica, Novi Beograd, Zemun and Grocka.
It is planned to set up an online map with youth content on the website of the European Youth Center in order to promote the current events in the city with the location of the site. During the duration of the project, the competition will be called Be Cool (Tural), where young people will be able to show their talent and creativity and win valuable awards.
The duration of the project is 01 March 2017 – 31 December 2017.
The Youth for Culture project is realized by the European Youth Center and financed by the Secretariat for Sports and Youth of the City of Belgrade.
