My European Dream


















Given the fact that in the school curriculum the information offered about the European Union (EU) focuses on the historical aspect of EU creation as a community and on economic and political development, rather than on the EU's own democratic and civic values, the Institute for Democracy, Media and Culture (IDMC) with the support of Albanian Media Institute is working in the implementation of "My European Dream" project. The main objective of this project is to promote European values for a country like Albania that aspires to join the EU. Young people will be trained in EU values (such as respect for human dignity, human rights, freedom, consolidated democracy, equality and the rule of law), and in the role media play in transmitting these values.

Through "learning by doing" method, the project aims to foster reflection on promotion of European values, first and foremost for young people who will be involved in the realization of the creative multimedia works. The videos itself will raise awareness of the new generation about European values that Albanian society shares or needs to adopt. Through the videos young people will inspire each other to be active citizens and when identifying problems in their country to look for solutions having in mind Europe as a model.

The added value of this project is the contribution to collaboration opportunities offered to the school as a community center to carry out its function. Training on European values and the role of the media in promoting these values will also serve young people as career consultations for future careers. The promotion of European values and the optimism that these values can be adopted in the case of Albania will also increase the interest of young people to contribute further to their country, thus avoiding brain drain in the longer term.


** This project is implemented within the regional program "Media for Citizens – Citizens for Media: Strengthening the Capacity of NGOs for the Development of Media and Information Literacy in the Western Balkans" , implemented with the support of the European Union.
