Call for Proposals - Action 3.2 — Youth in the world: Cooperation with countries other than the neighbouring EACEA/10/13 Closed!


The present call for proposals aims to support projects, which promote cooperation in the youth sector between ‘Youth in Action’ programme countries and partner countries other than those which are neighbours of the European Union (countries which have signed with the European Union an agreement relevant to the youth field). Projects should ensure complementarity with actions carried out within the development cooperation framework. This call provides grants to projects.

The specific objectives of the call are:

  • to improve the mobility of young people and youth workers, as well as youth employability,
  • to promote youth empowerment and active participation,
  • to foster capacity-building for youth organisations and structures in order to contribute to civil society development,
  • to promote cooperation and the exchange of experience and good practice in the field of youth and non-formal education,
  • to contribute to the development of youth policies, youth work and the voluntary sector,
  • to develop sustainable partnerships and networks between youth organisations.


The call is addressed to organisations working in the youth sector that are interested in running projects promoting cooperation in this field, involving youth workers and youth leaders, young people themselves and other actors involved in youth organisations and structures.

Proposals to this call must be submitted by non-profit organisations. These organisations can be non-governmental organisations (NGOs), public bodies at regional or local level, or national youth councils. The same applies to the partner organisations.

Preference will be given to those projects which best reflect the following priorities:
