Call overview

This action aims to create networks promoting regional partnerships, to be run in close cooperation with young people from across Europe

Call details

European Youth Together projects aim to create cooperation, enabling young people across Europe to set up joint projects, organise exchanges and promote trainings (e.g. for youth leaders/ youth workers) through both physical and online activities. The action will support transnational partnerships for youth organisations from both grassroots andlarge-scale level, aiming to reinforce the European dimension of their activities. 

The action seeks to specifically support:  

  • The promotion and development of transnational structured cooperation, online and offline, between different youth organisations so as to build or strengthen partnerships focusing on solidarity and inclusive democratic participation of all;
  • The implementation of EU Frameworks and initiatives such as country specific recommendations from the European Semester as far as they relate to the youth area;
  • Initiatives to encourage young people to participate in the democratic process and in society by organising trainings, showcase commonalities among young Europeans and encourage discussion and debate on their connection to the EU, its values and democratic foundations, including by providing a meaningful voice to youth in the framework of the Covid-19 recovery process;
  • The participation of under-represented groups of young people (e.g. vulnerable and socio-economic disadvantaged youth) in politics, youth organisations and other civil society organisations;  
  • New ways to empower youth organisations in dealing with the Covid-19 pandemic and its aftermath. Indicatively, this could include enhancing collaboration between youth organisations in a digital context by using relevant non-formal learning methods and organisational models including alternative modes of exchanges and mutual aid.

Activities

The action targets NGOs (not for profit) and public bodies, which propose projects with a capacity to mobilise young people in partnerships covering different countries and regions within the  EUMember States and third countries associated to the Programme.  

Mobility activities for young people should form a key component of European Youth Together projects. This mobility should offer cross-border exchanges and non-formal or informal training opportunities for young people from across Europe (East, West, North and South) that can be prepared and supported through online fora to contribute to the objectives of this action. These mobility activities must be very clearly justified according to the objectives of the action.

All the activities should contribute to broadening the outreach towards youth, reaching young people both within and beyond youth organisations including youth with fewer opportunities, to ensure a diversity of voices is heard.
