European Youth Together


European Youth Together projects aim to create networks promoting regional partnerships, enabling young people
across Europe to set up joint projects, organise exchanges and promote trainings (e.g. for youth leaders) through both
physical and online activities

Detailed Call Description

The action seeks to specifically support:

  • 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 of all against a backdrop of the backlashes on socio-economic structures and in line with the EU Youth Strategy, the EU Youth Goals and the Youth Dialogue;
  • The implementation of EU Frameworks and initiatives such as country specific recommendations from the European Semester304 as far as they relate to the youth area;
  • youth organisations involved in initiatives to encourage young people to participate in the democratic process and in society by organising trainings, showcase commonalities among young Europeans and encourage discussion and debate on their connection to the EU, its values and democratic foundations. This includes organising events as a lead-up to the 2024 elections to the European Parliament.
  • the promotion of participation of under-represented groups of young people in politics, youth organisations and other civil society organisations by engaging vulnerable and socio-economic disadvantaged youth;
  • New ways to empower youth organisations in dealing with the aftermath of the Covid-19 pandemic, by supporting innovative ways of cooperation and network creation, development and management. Indicatively, this could include enhancing collaboration between youth organisations in a digital context through non-formal learning methods and organisational models such as alternative modes of exchanges and mutual aid.
  • 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.

Mobility activities for young people should form a key component of European Youth Together projects. This mobility
should offer cross-border exchanges and non-formal or informal training opportunities for young people from across
Europe (East, West, North and South).

All the activities should contribute to broadening the outreach towards youth, reaching young people both within and
beyond youth organisations including youth with fewer opportunities, to ensure a diversity of voices is heard.

The 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.
