Noored Ühiskonna Heaks (NYH) is promoting a call for participants for an action 1.2 called “Free to move…Free to choose!“ which will take place in 8th until 13th August 2013 in Mussomeli, Sicily.
The project aims primarily to promote the right of establishment and the free movement of European citizens, bearing in mind that 2013 is the European Year of Citizens.
The young people of two countries, to achieve this objective, will realize several activities following those of four guidelines:
1. European citizenship: what does it mean? And what are the rights of European Citizens? What has changed in the last 20 years? Participants will carry on activities focused on this topic first in their country (meetings, interviews with local community) and then in Mussomeli during the transnational meeting. The outputs of all the activities will be integrated into the video "Free to move  ... Free to choose"!
2. Language: the language is the main problem that European citizens face up when moving abroad, especially that of the world of work. Participants will make a research and interviews to find out key phrases of 5 professions and jobs which they can choose themself. Afterword, during the transnational meeting in Mussomeli, participants will be involved in editing the "JOB-DICTIONARY".
3. Music: one of the main instruments of integration is the music. Participants will choose national music, singers and bands and will translate in English the songs’ text. The aim is to raise awareness of the national-local music to other nations. During the transnational meeting in Mussomeli, participants will make a selection of the songs chosen by the various partners to create the CD "Music without borders".
4. Experience: show and tell stories of "Europeans on the move”, i.e. people who moved to other European countries and now live there (focusing on difficulties faced up and suggestions coming from them). Participants will make research, interview and short videos in their own country and, during the transnational meeting in Mussomeli, participants will be involved in editing the main video" Free to move… Free to choose" that will be promoted and distributed in all the countries involved.

The young people involved in the project are cooperating with peers from other countries, facing common issues and seeking joint solutions, will develop a sense of active participation and European citizenship. They will also have the change to go to the final meeting in Mussomeli (Sicily) in August (4 days) to edit the JOB-DICTIONARY!”, CD  “MUSIC WITHOUT BORDERS and the video “FREE TO MOVE.. FREE TO CHOOSE” collecting all the work carried out in the local activities.

The event will be held in English and there are 4 vacancies available and participants should be 15 to 25 years old.
