Description: May Day, a culturally historic event shared by all Europeans, is the theme of the project. May Day is still a symbolic date and time for mobilisation related to the construction of a European Citizenship, which needs to be promoted and explored in the light of the political, social, economic and cultural changes taking place in Europe, especially in view of building a European identity and citizenship. The project aims at the creation of both a European network of cultural institutions that will carry out all the activities related to the theme and of a website that will contain and disseminate the results of the work carried out by the transnational partnership.
Objectives: to promote awareness of specific aspects of European culture which are less known to the general public and especially to young people. As specified in the project, a first preview of the website www.mayday2002.net will be online from the 1st of May 2002 and from that moment on, it will be progressively enriched by additional documents and materials.
