The project consists of three main phases. A series of initial workshops and meetings in collaboration with schools and youth centers will then be followed by a national conference and two international conferences among the young people involved in the project. Lastly, a delegation of the project's participants will meet some Members of the European Parliament in Brussels.  

The project starts with a series of workshops and meetings in cooperation with schools and youth centres, involving about sixty young people aged between 15 and 25 in each country, to collect reflections on the memory of the Resistance and proposals formulated in the various territories. This will be followed by two international conferences where more than 80 girls and boys involved in the four countries will meet to discuss the demands and to write together a Manifesto that will be presented to some Members of the European Parliament in Brussels by about 35 young people who participated in the previous phases.  


  • National workshops - Bologna, February-April 2023: artistic-historical workshops (music, theatre, webradio, video) with young people from the Bologna area (about 20 places available for each workshop) to reflect on democracy, starting from the historical memory of the Resistance.  
  • National Conference - Bologna, May-June 2023: Meeting dedicated to the participants of the workshops, to develop together concrete proposals for the problems of our territories. The meeting includes an international online meeting between the young people involved from Italy and those from Slovenia and is enriched by a city walking tour to places of historical importance concerning the Resistance.   
  • Two international conferences and an Advocacy Seminar- Bologna, October 2023 & Krakow February 2024: The first conference consists of interactive workshops, debates and exchanges, with the participation of groups of youth representatives who took part in the activities in the four partner countries. The exchange of ideas and opinions of the groups of youth representatives continues at the second conference with the collective drafting of the "Central European Manifesto" and participation in an advocacy seminar. From Italy, a maximum of 20 youth are selected to participate in each conference. 
  • Youth Round Table at the European Parliament, Brussels, May 2024: concluding phase of the process, with the presentation of the "Central European Manifesto" to European Parliamentarians and members of the European Commission.
