Name of the Project: PLUS – Politicians Listening To Us
Promoter: Fundación Tres Culturas del Mediterráneo
Financing Entity: KA3, Erasmus +
Topic: Young people’s perspective on social economy in the
euromediterranean zone.

Palestine, Spain, Tunisia [and Turkey].
Internacional Meeting: 17 to 24th July 2016
Venue: Sevile, Spain


Key Action 3 in Erasmus+ is dedicated to structured dialogue, i.e. how young people by talking to politicians may contribute to a better policy making.

The topic we propose is social economy and how policy makers reinforce or not this kind of social and economical development by different tools such as subsidies, seminars, information desks, etc.

  • Are you interested in social economy, social policies, entrepreneurial initiatives and innovation?
  • Would you like to work in a multicultural, multilingual and multiethnic environment, contributing to the development of mutual understanding, trust and tolerance within different groups of people?
  • Join our team and be one of the 4 participants who will participate in a summer workshop in Seville!
  • The PLUS project pertains to Key Action 3 of the Erasmus+ programme. That action focuses on dialogue between young people and policymakers, the aim being to have young people’s voices and opinions heard when political decisions are made. Among other things, the activities programme will include contact with policymakers from the Regional Government of Andalusia and the city of Seville, visits to official institutions and meetings with experts in political science and social economy.

To participate you have to be able to do a research on the Portuguese policies that encourage the social economy as a driving force for long-term sustainable development (nacional, regional or local levels). We are looking for young participants (between 20 and 30 years old) with involvement and interest in issues concerning the social economy, participation by citizens in political decisions, activity in associations, social commitment and responsibility in society. Advanced knowledge of the English language is required, because the entire activities programme will be carried out in English.
