The aim of the project "Strong together!" is to strengthen the social involvement of young people and the capacity of vulnerable groups of young people, ensuring the continuity of a culture of democracy.

Within the project, 390 young people (including vulnerable young people) will be involved in 14 public discussions "Me and initiative" on democracy, opportunities and participation. In the next stages of these events - educational seminars "My skills - my competence" 110 vulnerable young people will develop their skills to form a dialogue, to argue, to respond respectfully to provocative situations, to get acquainted with the formation of politics in a structured way. In-depth training "A knowledgeable young person is a value!" 40 young people will be trained to acquire skills and understanding of NGOs, their creation (two NGOs will be established as well), fundraising, promoting civic participation and educating and training other young people in the succession of democratic values. In the second stage of the project implementation, the young people themselves will organize and lead public events, present their initiatives, and, within these initiatives, the acquired knowledge. Throughout the project, there will be online open discussions led by both the young people themselves and professionals from different areas of society.

The result of the project is a successful succession - the young people are educated in the field of democratic culture, are active and pass on their knowledge. During the project implementation, via 20 educational events, 26 public activities, 4 initiatives and 10 virtual environment activities, the proportion of residents who engage in civic activities and who believe in their personal ability to influence decision-making processes will have increased.
