The objectives of the project Youth Urban Action focus on two of these key points: Participation and Equality. The European organizations involved should create the conditions for young people with special needs to realize their full potential. Facilitate their social life, especially in generating integrated contexts. Appropriating urban spaces as spaces for openness, dialogue, meeting citizenship. Thus, to encourage new models of thinking towards disability.
The YOUTH URBAN ACTION project aims to exchange good practices and generate new solutions. The European organizations involved will thus have more tools to facilitate integrated youth aggregation. Relocate the relationship to the center and socialization opportunities that overcome the obstacles of intrusiveness, invisibility, and obstacles of intrusiveness, invisibility, and hostility, thanks to guided experiences. The merit of an education in social life that includes diversity in one’s own experience. The urban space, like a square, a park, a public building can thus become the theater of events where young people with special needs cannot meet. Affirm your identity, communicate without preconceptions, and be facilitated in this.
