Discover Our Europe - Portugal Event
The Discover our Europe project is a co-funded project of the Europe for Citizens Programme. It aims to inform European citizens about the European Union, its history and its diversity in order to fight against Euroscepticism. This project aims, on the one hand, to provide young people with a basic knowledge of the European Union and, on the other hand, to discover European mobility opportunities, and to strengthen active European citizenship. It is also intended for citizens to feel strongly as if they belonged to the European Union and better knowledge about the EU, about the European citizens’ initiative and about European funding, as well as intercultural exchanges between European citizens. The DOE project has international partners such as Spain, France, Hungary, Romania, Slovenia and Cyprus. From 28 to 29 October, Ermesinde will be the venue for an international event, including a conference cycle with delegates from partner countries (Spain, France, Hungary, Romania and Slovenia).

Event reportOn the first day of the event, on 28 October 2021, two conferences were held, followed by a workshop aimed at young students aged 13-18. The first conference was held by a guest speaker, Professor Dr. Rui Pires, Master of Studies on Europe, PhD in Intercultural Relations and Researcher in the field of Social Sciences. The theme brought by this speaker was as follows: ‘AZIMUTH: dialogues on cultures and HD. The Erasmus formula for Europe in the 20th century. XXI’. At this point a presentation was held for the audience who was watching online. The second conference was also conducted by a guest speaker, Professor Alessandra Silveira, Doctor in Law (Legal and Political Sciences), Director of the Union — EU Law Journal and the blog associated with the magazine “Thinking & Debating Europe”, and Director of the Master’s Degree in European Union Law at the University of Minho, and the topic brought for discussion was the “State of Law of Europe”. Also on this day, a workshop was conducted by youth technicians of the Sojovem Association of the gravel trees, with the contribution of Dr. Luís Ramalho, Secretary-General of the same, on the theme of Erasmus + and the European Solidarity Corps. This workshop was held at the Campo Basic and Secondary School in Valongo. The European Solidarity Corps platform (https://europa.eu/youth/solidarity/young-people/volunteering_pt) was used and demonstrated, and there were volunteering testimonies under the European Solidarity Corps, which reported their experiences, as well as talked about all the skills they developed and personal gains. One of the methods used for the activities was to ask young people, volunteers, to carry out an opportunity-seeking activity in the EU for volunteering projects. In addition, a questionnaire was carried out with the students of one of the games available on the official website of the EU on the “Learning Corner” (https://europa.eu/learning-corner/quiz_en), a video on youth mobility (https://europa.eu/learning-corner/work-and-study_pt) was viewed, and a talk was held about how mobility and stay issues in the countries work in practice. On the second day of the event, October 29, 2021, the same workshop was held, in the auditorium of the Ermesinde Parish Junta, with students from Ermesinde Secondary School, between 14 and 18 years old. The only activities to prepare for the event were the research of interactive games of the “Learning Corner” and the discovery of the site, so that it was possible to present it in the best way. The interest aroused in the students of the Basic and Secondary School of Campo during the whole session was one of the main achievements. They participated a lot, raised numerous questions and showed interest in participating in the different Erasmus+ mobility projects. In addition, our greatest achievement was to make known tools that were unknown to young people, namely the Learning Corner platform of the official EU website and the European Solidarity Corps website opportunity search platform. In addition, the school itself showed an interest in collaborating with this type of Erasmus+ projects, as well as having started a likely contact with one of the partner organisations for the DOE project. In addition, the event has generated new dynamics, as the Basic and Secondary School of Field will start collaborating with the Sojovem Association, as well as with an organisation of the partner countries in Hungary. Participants’ comments: “Great event, thank you for leading it in such good way!” “I liked the passport history in Switzerland a lot.” “The stories told were interesting.” “To highlight the very good organisation” “Really interesting subject, and linked with the European currentity!” First, it was necessary to define and understand the profile of the participants of the event, that is, it was necessary to define the “target audience”. After defining what was previously mentioned, it was then necessary to draw up strategies for each channel and medium of communication. The following channels were used: Facebook, Zoom, Instagram and LinkedIn. Instagram for example, is a type of on channel that has formats such as feed, stories, and videos. Still to be part of the disclosure of the event, printed materials were needed for greater dissemination, especially for the elderly population, these who do not use the social media. • Corporate e-mail; • Social networks: https://www.facebook.com/associacaosojovem; https://www.instagram.com/associacaosojovem/; https://www.linkedin.com/company/associacaosojovem/?viewAsMember=true; • Publications: https://www.instagram.com/p/CVVqSkgtsFU/; https://www.instagram.com/p/CVkb8-Yt0IJ/; https://www.instagram.com/p/CVx4-coohOY/; https://www.instagram.com/stories/highlights/17920331749987020/; https://www.facebook.com/associacaosojovem/posts/1228368397572749; https://www.facebook.com/associacaosojovem/posts/1224797124596543; https://www.facebook.com/associacaosojovem/posts/1231570630585859; • Website: https://www.sojovem.org/news/finalizouse-na-sextafeira-dia-29-de-outubro-a; https://www.sojovem.org/news/esta-a-decorrer-entre-o-dia-28-e-29-de-outubro; the https://www.sojovem.org/news/a-associacao-sojovem-das-saibreiras-tem-a-honra
