Raising awareness and disseminating civic competences for active citizenship is essential to increase the fight against corruption, and young people are a key pillar in this vision. From housing shortages to inequality in education, corruption is at the root of many of the problems facing youth today.
Within this framework, we have embarked on a project that aims to empower and train youth to build monitoring communities against corruption. Meet MoMoEU!
MoMoEU is born from the need to fulfil a lack of training opportunities aimed at training youth workers on the specific topics of integrity education and civic monitoring, and would help them to improve the quality of their work and knowledge, as well as strengthen their digital competences.
Interactive and participatory materials and digital tools will be developed by MoMoEU partners and adapted to the different national contexts, to engage young people in transparency and corruption prevention issues, also through blended or fully digital (remote) activities. By providing youth workers with an innovative methodological approach and online educational resources, the project is well positioned to support young people in becoming the change makers in our society and to achieve a positive impact on future generations of adults. Greater dialogue, interaction and joint work with other actors from the youth work community of practice in MoMoEU partner countries will be promoted, creating synergies and strengthening the links between youth, integrity education and anti-corruption fields.
Consistently with the EU Youth Strategy 2019-2027, the project fosters citizenship competences and creates opportunities for young people to participate in public life in policy areas affecting their lives, with an innovative form of democratic participation aimed to tackle corruption with a bottom-up approach.
In line with the EU Digital Education Action Plan (2021-2027), the project supports the digitalisation of non-formal educational methods and pedagogies, and the provision of digital resources required for inclusive and resilient remote and blended educational activities. Through participation in project activities and use of project results, youth workers will become digitally competent and confident, as well as they will be able to foster digital citizenship among their targeted young people.
Finally, the project responds to the provisions of the United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC) for CSOs to promote anti-corruption education programmes and public participation in decision-making processes.
