Homo Europeanus – Overcoming the Knowledge Deficit

The project’s overall objective is spreading more knowledge about EU particularly in the context of the economic crisis, a general rise in antiimmigrant sentiment and xenophobia – to citizens of the member states and EU candidate countries, in order to overcome democratic deficit.

The action will be implemented by 14 NGOs from 9 MSs (Bulgaria, Italy, Poland, Spain, Croatia, Slovenia, Slovakia, Czech Republic and Latvia), and 3 CC (Serbia, Montenegro, FYROM).
During 16 months project events will involve 500 direct participants and numerous wider local public who will overcome the “knowledge deficit” and gain better understanding about EU – necessary ground for their more active involvement in creating future Europe.
