Capacity building in the field of youth (Erasmus+ Programme)
Within this Erasmus+ Programme's call, capacity building projects will be funded. They are defined as 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 competencies 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.
Proposals should focus on one or more of the following thematic areas:
- political participation and dialogue with decision-makers;
- inclusion of young people with fewer opportunities;
- democracy, rule of law and values;
- empowerment / engagement / employability of young people ;
- peace and post-conflict reconciliation;
