The European Union has declared 2022 as the European Year of Youth (EYY). Today's world - recently particularly affected by conflicts, health and climate problems - needs the imagination of the next generations, their passion and commitment to build a more secure, modern, healthy and green future. We are convinced that the voice of youth and their greater involvement can positively influence cooperation between the EU and its neighbours. That is why, for many years we have been addressing our activities to young people. One of them is the Youth Education Campaign, whose Final Event is always in September, when we celebrate the European Cooperation Day. Past editions have attracted dozens of schools on both sides of the EU border and resulted in hundreds of international contacts and an unquantifiable and priceless number of positive emotions and memories
We invite 4-person teams of students from Poland and Ukraine to the next edition of our Youth Education Campaign, which this year will be held under the slogan: "CREATIVE, INNOVATIVE, ACTIVE!" and the following competition tasks will be associated with it:
Look for an invention (tangible or intangible) in the history of the common border region, which contributed to the development of the region and maybe even the entire world. On an A4 or A3 sheet of paper, draw a short comic book about how this invention came about. The text ("speech clouds") in the comic strip can be in English or in your national language. Include a scan or a clear photo of the comic strip. The best works will also be exhibited during the Final Event and published on the Programme's website and social media profile.

Come up with and describe your own invention/innovative solution which will help to protect the nature of our planet, prevent global warming or its adverse effects, especially in the Programme area. Write your idea on one side of A4 (in English or your national language) and send it as an attachment. You may also attach a drawing or schematic of the model (scan or a clear image) which will make it easier to understand how it works, for which you will receive extra points. The most interesting works will also be exhibited during the Final Event and published on the Programme's website and social media profile.

Write lyrics using the words of the competition title: CREATIVE, INNOVATIVE, ACTIVE. The lyrics can be in English or your national language. Send it as a text file. The most interesting lyrics will also be displayed during the Final Event. We will try to perform the best text together as a song to a musical background, prepared during a joint workshop under the supervision of a professional as part of the Final Event.
The deadline for completing the tasks and sending applications is 15th June 2022. The best teams will take part in the Final Event, which will be held from 14th to 17th September 2022 in the Mazowieckie Voivodeship, and its part will be a visit to the capital of Poland, Warsaw. Attractive prizes and unforgettable experiences await all participants of the Final Event!
