GEYC is selecting 3 Romanian participants to take part in the “Information at your diposal” European project that will take place in Moat Mount (London, UK), from 26th May until 3th of June 2015. This is a training course looking at access to information within the EU.

Moat Mount Open Space is a 110 hectare park and nature reserve in Mill Hill in the London Borough of Barnet.

About the project:
Many young people complain that they do not know about the different opportunities available to them. We often hear them saying they would have taken advantage of various opportunities if only they had known. This is a training course looking at access to information within the EU. We will evaluate how youth understand this concept and how they use their rights to information. We will look at the various places where youth can find useful information and how they can use this information to their advantage. We will analyse how information is available and see if there is a lack of information or simply a lack of interest to find this information. We will also explore methods to ease the process of finding information for youth in Europe.
