#giveavotecampaign
ahoy all aboard! may 2019

80 young people, between 16 and 18 years old, were invited on board a boat trip round Malta aimed to empower young people to mobilise to other countries and engage in different opportunities around Europe.  This event featured the services of EYCA, ERYICA and Eurodesk MT – 3 European Networks which Agenzija Zghazagh operates and is member of.

The young participants attained a better knowledge on how youth information can help them to find their place in society. The information provided during the boat trip equipped young people with social, civic and cultural competences as well as a  strong capacity for critical thinking.

The boat trip enabled the young people to face picturesque views around Malta which they have never seen before and which they have always believed that were out of reach; in relation to this the young people realised that same case is with opportunities – unless you seek and are provided with guidance you will never know!

One of the boat trip’s highlights was the campaigning of ‘#GiveAVote’. A campaign which was led by the 2 youth activists who made sure first time voters got the right information in order to make an informed decision.

#giveavote campaign had:
1
Challenged  young people to make the connection between the many things they care about and the EU’s power to help achieve those objectives.
2
Aimed to mobilise young people across the EU
3
Provided the possibility for the participants to meet and exchange information about youth issues with other young people, youth workers and professionals working within the youth sector.
