ELIX is re-publishing the Call for participants to the D.E.M.O. (Democracy, Elections, Mentorship, Organizing) project organised by European Alternatives. European Alternatives works to promote democracy, equality and culture beyond the nation-state and imagine, demand and enact alternatives for a viable future.
The “D.E.M.O.” programme aims at encouraging and facilitating the active engagement of a wide network of European citizens through both training & hands-on action, in the context of the upcoming 2024 European Elections. We just launched the open call to identify and select 50 change-makers from at least 8 countries (Austria, Bulgaria, Czechia, Greece, Slovakia, Slovenia, Romania, Sweden and others) to participate in the D.E.M.O. programme. Those selected change-makers will receive the necessary tools to re-imagine democracy in their local communities and to encourage democratic participation.
“MasterPEACE - Training of Youth Multipliers on Peace and Human Rights Education” is the title of the new project proposed by ELIX that will be implemented 8 to 15 of March 2023 with the involvement of more than 25 youth workers who will develop their competences as youth multipliers in peace and human rights education.
ELIX participates in a 3-year project from January 2020 to December 2022, titled “Time 2 Team” that has been approved for funding by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union.

In 2017, ELIX is celebrating 30 years of action. All these years, ELIX has played an active role in the field of volunteering on national and international level. With credibility and responsibility, ELIX, is giving the chance to an always increasing number of young people to participate in voluntary projects abroad and while receiving foreign volunteers to offer their voluntary service in Greece.
This year, ELIX has the honor to host the 35th Annual General Assembly of the ALLIANCE of European Voluntary Service Organisations, that will be held in Athens from the 1st to the 3rd of November 2017.

The Induction Seminar aims at providing young trainees with information and resources on how to design IVS projects as structured methodological and pedagogical tools.
