MEDITER network joined IDEA-C (Inter-cultural Dimension for European Active Citizenship)

MEDITER network is one of the partners taking part to the project IDEA-C, which aims to restore electoral faith among EU citizens and to promote the democratic engagement and civic participation.
The project was conceived considering the alarmingly low turnout rate in EU elections in some countries where voting is not compulsory and the democratic deficit it causes across Europe.
IDEA- C will address the four main causes for low electoral participation found in collaboration with the project partners:
– lack of interest and of knowledge of the democratic workings of the EU
– mistrust towards EU institutions
-lack of sense of belonging to Europe.
The main contractor of the project is the Municipality of Geraci Siculo (Province of Palermo, Italy).
Thirteen partners take part in the project, including the network Mediter.
IDEA-C will consist of 13 local workshops organised from each partner organization + 4 International events.
The project, coordinated by EProjectConsult – European Institute for Training and Research, is part of the Europe for Citizens Programme 2014 – 2020, Measure 2.2 Strand 2.
