Call for proposals 2018 — Erasmus+ programme — Key action 3: Support for policy reform — European Youth Together EACEA/16/2018 Closed!


The scope of the ‘European Youth Together’ actions should build on the experience obtained through the ‘New Narrative for Europe’ project and other youth policy and programme initiatives aiming to promote young people’s participation in European public life as well as cross-border exchanges and mobility activities.

‘European Youth Together’ projects aim to create networks promoting regional partnerships, and to be run in close cooperation with young people from across Europe (Erasmus+ programme countries). The networks would organise exchanges, promote training (for instance for youth leaders), and allow young people themselves to set up joint projects.

‘European Youth Together’ will support initiatives from at least five youth organisations from five different eligible Erasmus+ programme countries to share their ideas about the EU, encourage wider civic participation and help foster a sense of European citizenship. The initiative will aim to bring together European youth from across Europe; East, West, North and South.

The thematic priorities are active citizenship, network-building, European values and European citizenship, democratic participation, democratic resilience and social inclusion related to youth.
