Call for proposals 2021 – Erasmus+ - Capacity building in the field of youth ERASMUS-YOUTH-2021-CB Open!

Objectives

Capacity-building projects are international cooperation projects based on multilateral partnerships between organisations active in the field of youth in Programme and Partner countries. They aim to support the international cooperation and policy dialogue in the field of youth and non-formal learning, as a driver of sustainable socio-economic development and well-being of youth organisations and young people.
 
The action will aim at:

  • raising the capacity of organisations working with young people outside formal learning;
  • promote non-formal learning activities in Partner countries, especially targeting young people with fewer opportunities, with a view to improving the level of competences while ensuring the active participation of young people in society;
  • support the development of youth work in Partner countries, improving its quality and recognition;
  • foster the development, testing and launching of schemes and programmes of non-formal learning mobility in Partner countries;
  • contribute to the implementation of the EU Youth Strategy (2019-2027) including the 11 European Youth goals;
  • foster cooperation across different regions of the world through joint initiatives;
  • enhance synergies and complementarities with formal education systems and/or the labour market;

Actions

Examples of activities include:

  • the development of tools and methods for the socio-professional development of youth workers and trainers;
  • the development of non-formal learning methods, especially those promoting the acquisition/improvement of competences, including media literacy skills;
  • the development of new forms of practical training schemes and simulation of real life cases in society;
  • the development of new forms of youth work, notably strategic use of open and flexible learning, virtual cooperation, open educational resources (OER) and better exploitation of the ICT potential;
  • the organisation of events/seminars/workshops/exchange of good practice for cooperation, networking, awareness raising and peer-learning purposes
