Extract from the Statute
“EUGEN seeks to support local communities in the process of European integration in support of the social, human and civil rights of citizens. It promotes the rights of universal citizens through actions aimed at achieving the right to full employment, social inclusion and free movement of persons.
The Association does not have any direct or indirect profit purpose and works for purposes of social solidarity.
The Association aims to develop, promote and implement social solidarity projects, including the implementation of socio-educational and cultural initiatives.
The spirit and the practice of the association are rooted in respect for the principles of the Italian Constitution which have inspired the association itself and are based on full respect for the human, cultural and spiritual dimension of the person.
To pursue the social aims the association in particular proposes:
a) to train and support the community in accessing EU funding to stimulate local growth in an intelligent, sustainable and inclusive way and to overcome the economic and social imbalances between the regions
b) to promote the transnational mobility of young people and the transition between training and the world of work, enhancing human and professional attitudes and skills
c) to feed the feeling of European citizenship based on the principles of solidarity, non-discrimination, equal opportunities, respect for the human person and social inclusion
d) to affirm the right to culture, education and lifelong learning and to support sporting practice and health promotion with a view to transnational cooperation.
e) to support the social and cultural cross-border law with particular reference to the old age and youth activity
The association avails itself of any useful tool for the achievement of the social goals and in particular the collaboration with local authorities, also through the stipulation of special agreements, of participation in other associations, companies or organizations with similar or related purposes.
The association is open to anyone who shares solidarity principles. All those who recognize themselves in the Statute (It Vers.) and intend to collaborate for the achievement of the social purpose can be part of the association in an unlimited number.
They can ask to be admitted as members both natural persons and legal entities, both de facto associations, by submitting a form (It vers.).”
