Methaphor of the BET:
The project concept is a metaphor of a bet.
Firstly, to be successful it is critical to know the rules of the game (how EU institutions, policies and the enlargement process functions)
Secondly, it is crucial to consider the resources and what you are willing to invest to the bet (the EU project)
Finally we need to decide what to bet on.

●  Each country, and hence each partner will participate in the action contributing its own experience, history, values and cultural features.
●  This joint process will make citizens reflect and debate on the impact of the EU on their daily lives and contribute to the improvement of EU policies.
Objectives and outcomes of the Project:
● The principal objective of BETonEU is to build relations and cooperation between EU and Balkan towns.

● One of the main outcomes is to establish a long-lasting and permanent network of local authorities, including civil society, strongly committed to the constant improvement of democracy and participation in the EU and the Balkans

● Giving citizens the opportunity to interact and participate in constructing a tighter-knit Europe

● Developing a sense of European identity

● Raising awareness, reflection and debate on the relevance and implications of EU policies on citizens’ daily lives

● Increasing awareness, understanding and enjoyment of the values, rights and opportunities created by the EU

● Fostering reflection on the cost of non-Europe

● Promoting Citizens’ engagement and participation in issues which constitute the European Union’s political priorities
Expected impact of the Project:
● Increased knowledge of citizens, local authorities and civil society about EU enlargement

● Increased citizen participation in EU matters

● Raised citizens awareness on EU policies and their related role

● Strengthened cooperation between local authorities, civil society and citizens in the EU and Balkans

● Raised importance of international cooperation on democracy and participation
