The objective of SMARTY is the creation, development and stabilization of a network of like-minded youth organizations from across Europe, active at grassroots level and able to engage, connect and empower young people to build a society in where all young people, especially those in rural areas, are environmentally active, educated and able to make a difference, contributing to the European Youth Goal 10: Green Europe sustainability, through the concrete development of smart village projects.
SMART-Y begins with a multi-nationality network of youth grassroots organizations active in EU rural areas and able to Engage, Connect and Empower vulnerable young people (aged 18-30), towards the co-creation of European smart villages. Bringing the youth along with decision makers to back the realization of the European Youth Goal 10: Green Sustainable Europe.
The ratio is rooted in a preliminary needs analysis addressed to the EU rural contexts; to the target groups (young people, youth workers, policy makers) active there; to the state of the art of relevant EU policies. A paradigm shift is needed towards a shared policy programming at local level in the EU, involving youth as protagonist of change: the cross-border initiatives enhanced the capacity of youth organizations to collaborate transnationally around specific EU policy issues considered relevant for the youth field, while contributing to make youngsters environmentally active, educated and able to make a difference in their everyday lives, as well as to tackle major challenges of EU rural territories.
