On December 22, 2018, Asociación Mundus was one of the sponsors of the annual Ideas for Zaragoza debate and presented a pilot project that will be carried out during the year 2019. Through this project, it is intended to enhance international knowledge of the city of Zaragoza, while seeking to engage its young people to be European ambassadors and ambassadors of the city.
Ideasfor is a non-profit association dedicated to young people from Zaragoza, especially those who no longer live in the city or the country, keep in touch with their city of origin through a day in which they they propose ideas that can improve the city of Zaragoza in the following aspects: Education, Culture, Economy, Environment, Social Work, Technology.
Ideas For Zaragoza creates events with young professionals who want to advance the city in the aforementioned areas. Having a network of young people wanting to work for their city shows a strong local commitment; and these types of events are a space where to integrate the ideas of youth in society with a clear motto: ‘Together we add’. This is a different way to help the city and allow a society in continuous movement.
From Mundus we have proposed to the young people that once back to their host cities, they inform about the possibilities of knowing and living in Zaragoza doing an internship mobility, as a student of any sector. As explained in the event Quique Miana, vice president of Mundus, there are already more than a thousand students from around Europe who have come to live an experience of labor exchange in Zaragoza.
Mundus Zaragoza has launched a pilot test in which it asks Ideasfor local youth to complete this responsible work with their city, to help put Zaragoza on the European map by promoting knowledge mobility and through the promotion of European citizenship.
For this, Mundus and Ideasfor Zaragoza have thrown a glove at the participants of the four previous editions to start with this work. This allows Mundus to link up with schools in European cities and empower the arrival of a "junior" generation of Ideasfor members.
We hope this pilot test will be consolidated very soon. We will inform you!
