The contest focuses on the production of short stories whose content is linked to the creation or consolidation of dynamics aimed at fostering voluntary work, a key element of active citizenship that helps to promote intergenerational solidarity, the evolution of values and societies, and the expression of the different sensibilities and realities of youths in the region. The contest is aimed at youths from 18 to 30, citizens of one of the 43 countries of the Euro-Mediterranean area. The deadline for submitting stories is 25th May.
