The project aims at equipping young people with the critical thinking capacities needed to unmask Europhobic myths and misrepresentations of EU realities, a tendency which increasingly divides and threatens social cohesion and identification in Europe. It is of utmost importance for the future of the European Union that more and more young people act as ambassadors of the European idea and values and defend them against destructive populism. MEGA adopts a two-fold reach-out and impact strategy.
Youth workers (first target group) will be addressed through a train-the-trainer course. They will be trained in gamified online and face-toface methods to strengthen young people in rejecting Europhobic myths and to build up their confidence as ambassadors of the European idea among their peers. At the same time, young people (second target group) will be approached directly and empowered through an online gamification platform
