European Youth Together
The European Youth Together projects aim to create networks promoting regional partnerships, to be run in close cooperation with young people from across Europe (EU Member States and third countries associated to the programme). The networks should organise exchanges, promote trainings (for instance for youth leaders) and allow young people themselves to set up joint projects, all of which can be done through both physical and online activities.
The European Youth Together action will support transnational partnerships for youth organisations from grassroots level to large-scale partnerships, aiming to reinforce the European dimension of their activities, including on how to live better together and helping to design sustainable future ways of living, in line with the European Green Deal and the New European Bauhaus initiative.
Important thematic priorities are working with and promoting the EU Youth Goals and, in general, the EU Youth Strategy 2019-2027. Project proposals may also treat the themes of the ‘Conference for the Future of Europe’ and the European Parliament elections in 2024.
- The promotion and development of more transnational structured cooperation, online and offline, between different youth organisations to build or strengthen partnerships focusing on solidarity and inclusive democratic participation
- The implementation of EU Frameworks and initiatives
- To encourage young people to participate in the democratic process and in society by organising trainings, showcasing commonalities among young Europeans and encouraging discussion and debate on their connection to the EU, its values and democratic foundations, including by organising events as a lead-up to the 2024 elections to the European Parliament.
- Promote participation of under-represented groups of young people in politics, youth organisations and other civil society organisations by engaging vulnerable and socioeconomic disadvantaged youth.
- New ways to empower youth organisations in dealing with the aftermath of the Covid-19 pandemic.
- The reinforcement of the European dimension of the activities of youth organisations, including activities on how to live better together after the pandemic and helping to design sustainable future ways of living transnationally.
