European Youth Together" projects aim to create networks promoting regional partnerships, to be run in close cooperation with young people from across Europe (Erasmus+ programme countries). The networks would organise exchanges, promote trainings (for instance for youth leaders) and allow young people themselves to set up joint projects, all of which could be done through both physical and online activities."European Youth Together" seeks to 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 aims to bring together European youth from across Europe; East, West, North and South.For this yearthe thematic priorities are the promotion of EU Youth Goals #3 #4 and #10, namely ‘Inclusive Societies’, ‘Information and Constructive Dialogue’ and ‘Sustainable and Green Europe’, as referred to in Annex 3 to the EU Youth Strategy 2019-20276. These European Youth Goals reflect also the President von der Leyen Commission’s political guidelines7for the next five years, namely the ‘European Green Deal’, ‘A Europe fit for the digital age’ and a ‘new push for European democracy’.More recently, in light of theCOVID-19 pandemic, immediate response is required to mitigate its socio-economic impact, including capacity building and specific measures to deal with Covid-19 crisis recovery in the youth sector.
In this respect, President von der Leyen said the EU would do whatever was necessary to support the Europeans and the European economy when announcing European measures to counter the economic impact of the Coronavirus. When doing so, youth networks could consider ways of forging solidarity and inclusiveness, which concur with challenges related to digital skills and green lifestyles.
