PROGRAM / ACTION
Erasmus Plus – KA3 – SUPPORT FOR POLICY REFORM
EUROPEAN YOUTH TOGETHER
MAIN TARGET GROUPS
• Policy makers
• Youth workers
• (underrepresented) youngsters
• NGOs and youth organizations
NEUEYT project aims at developing a Framework of blended initiatives for the enforcement of active citizenship and democratic participation among youngsters 16-20, particularly underrepresented in policy making decisions, including those living in remote/rural areas.
A special attention has been given on the digital approach of the newly developed participation processes to reduce the gap among the invisible youth.
The methodology has focused on the active involvement of youngsters and policy makers to the activities in local communities, thus engaging them from the research to the piloting, from the development of the policy
recommendation to the feedback given to the initiatives of the framework. Action research, co-creation, and community development principles has guided this approach.
The partnership has involved 6 countries (IT, GR, CY, NMK, FR, NO) and gathers public (local and regional) as well as private bodies (international nets, youth Associations and NGOs) , all involved in youth empowerment and policy making.
