Be In Boat


The symbol of the project is “Together”, the Youth in Action Boat – a sailing boat promoting the European values and the campaign.

During the 18 months, the boat with experienced sailors mixed with young volunteers on board visited many European harbours in the North Sea and La Manche.

Of course the boat is also used as a tool in other activities. International teams of young people coming from all Europe were sailing from harbour to harbour and made in each of them an information campaign. What is hidden behind this activity ? Press conferences, meetings with representatives of the municipality, region and government presentation of the Youth in Action programme for young people, intercultural buffet with informal presentations, local meetings, distribution of posters, flyers and stickers of the campaign in the city and any other activity that can make local people more aware about main topics of the campaign.

The boat has also participated in several international regattas through the 18 months to increase the visibility of the project also at high-profile events and get in contact with the decision-makers. There were exhibition stands of the project at each of the regattas. (e.g.: Tour de l’ile de Wight- Fastnet-Normandys week, etc.)

Several information stands about the project and about YiA were organised around big boat races. (e.g.: Tour de France à la voile-Course de l’Edhec-Transat Jacques Vabre-Course du Figaro, etc.)

The most active young people from the national project teams were selected to participate in the boat trips as well as the regattas.
