Project idea:Thematic year of the European Union is a great opportunity to publicize problematic EU public policy and to integrate various groups of society into broader dialogue about actuality and directions of the policy. Unfortunately, in the society development cooperation as Lithuania's foreign policy area is not very well known. Although according to Eurobarometer (in 2013) the help to poorer countries supports by 81% of respondents in Lithuania. Comprehensive public survey reveals that information about development cooperation is limited and inaccurate so it means that the results of interviews and society awareness about development are doubtful.

There are a number of reasons of limited society awareness about development cooperation and development. In the context of this project can be seen a few of them: the initiatives of youth awareness about the development are isolated and not well coordinated, limited participation of students and teachers who are able to work with development themes and ready to provide appropriate support for pupils. In addition, there are no initiatives informing and educating about development in education / training centers for young adults who returned to education system in Lithuania. Speaking about education of development theme in the academic context, the good example is only international relations and development bachelor studies program of Vytautas Magnus University. Unfortunately in other universities and colleges (especially in other than political sciences) problems of developing countries are not touched and integrated into the training courses. Finally, there are the apparent lack of initiatives involving various youth groups to the discussion about development, also this information and initiatives, unfortunately, does not reach the outer communities of Lithuania. Therefore, this project with a broad network of partners and interactive and innovative measures will raise awareness and educate various youth groups about importance of Lithuanian and European Union development cooperation also its goals and actualities, and thereby promote Lithuanian public debates and participation in implementing development cooperation politics.
