Description:

Rising far-right populism and right-wing extremism is characterizing Europe`s political and civic landscape in the 2010ies. While traditional political parties in Western Europe constantly loose members and political support, populist parties on the right-end of the political spectrum gain ground in
many European countries, even reaching political decision-making in governments. What is more, the public political mainstream discourse is challenged by alternative right media and radical movements
questioning fundamental values of diversity, democracy and political freedom across Europe. This being true for Western Europe, the political landscape in Eastern Europe sees political populism since the independent from Soviet Union, and a rise of nationalistic and chauvinistic narratives and policies that come along.
In this context, civil society has a great role in countering populism and chauvinistic narratives that are anti-European, anti-diversity, and in contemporary Europe especially anti-immigration.
Therefore, the project aims to contribute to strengthen the capacity of civil society in the youth sector to counter (right wing) populism and dismantle chauvinistic narratives from a progressive, inclusive and participatory vision for a united European civil society.

Objectives:
• To strengthen the competences of the participants in supporting young people to co-lead civic initiatives countering (right wing) populism and chauvinistic narratives, initiatives and
movements
• To create a resource pack for youth workers and youth community leaders on countering
political (right wing) populism
• To intensify transnational cooperation between the project partners and the participants for strengthening a progressive, inclusive and participatory vision for united European civil society

Financial matters:
Accommodation and lodging covered 100% by the Erasmus +.
Travel expenses are covered up to 360 Euro in case of Hungary, the amount is defined by the Distance Calculator
