Activity description

The volunteers will be actively embedded in the multiethnic and stimulating environment of Bologna by exploiting the activities and the network of contacts of YouNet. They will be involved in activities connected with the promotion of EU values between young people and adults. They will help the European Mobility Department to develop its online communication strategy through websites, e-learning, videos, photography, blogging and social networks. They will be free to design their own creative content to disseminate local activities for youngsters (non-formal trainings, workshops, seminars, conferences, linguistic tandems) and ongoing international projects. This will enable them to approach this context and act as protagonists thus making the most of the unique opportunity of the ESC.
