Call overview

The main objective of this call for proposals is to bring the European Parliament closer to its citizens in organising two local European Youth Events (local EYEs).

Call details

The European Youth Event is an event for young people and by young people. Local EYEs should follow this key principle. Therefore, organisations selected for co-financing under this call for proposals are expected to be local or youth organisations (as main applicants). Partnership with a public authority for the implementation of the event will be considered an asset, in order to ensure strong links with the local level and a solid operational capacity.

Objective

The main objective of this call for proposals is to bring the European Parliament closer to its citizens in organising two local European Youth Events (local EYEs).

The expected results of the actions is to strengthen European citizenship among young people, make them aware about how the EU works and empower them to become active citizens. Ultimately the objective is to connect the EP to its younger citizens and make them vote in the next parliamentary elections.

The actions proposed in the call should target young people aged 16-30. Special attention should be paid to reaching out to minority communities from peripheral regions of Europe and citizens that normally don’t have so much contact with the EU and are less likely to already be involved in EU action, such as vulnerable groups as defined in the call for proposals.

Scope

This call for proposals is one of the actions of the European Parliament to contribute to the European Year of Youth announced by the European Commission for 2022, intending notably:

  • to encourage all young people, especially those with fewer opportunities, or belonging to vulnerable groups[1], to become active citizens;
  • to draw inspiration from the actions, vision and insights of young people to further strengthen and invigorate the common EU project, building upon the Conference on the Future of Europe.

[1]Vulnerable groups include people from disadvantaged socio-economic backgrounds, rural and remote areas and people with disabilities.

Please read the Call Document for more detailed information.
