‘The South #Networked with Europe: Through your eyes’ is an awareness-raising project aimed at students from the regions receiving funding from the National Operational Programme (OP) on Infrastructures and Networks 2014-2020.
The action sets out to increase young people’s interest in Europe, Cohesion Policy and interventions of the OP on Infrastructures and Networks 14-20, in addition to encouraging the active participation of schools through training and educational courses as part of scholastic programmes. The objective is that of encouraging secondary school students to consider the benefits derived from the implementation of co-funded EU interventions and the positive effects in terms of improvements to mobility and value maximization of the territory.
The project takes the form of pilot action conducted during the course of the academic year 2017/2018, involving six secondary schools located within those regions where OP interventions are implemented, selected with the support of the Regional Schools Offices.
