Our topic of 2022

These days there seems to be a constant string of crises present in our everyday lives: the corona pandemic, the war in Ukraine, climate change, the refugee crisis and so on. What all these developments have in common is that they are not national phenomena, but take place in a European and a global context. In this year’s European Youth Weeks, we want to engage in an exchange about these issues and work together on ways to meet the challenges posed by these developments.

YouthPass Certificate
European Youth Weeks is an approved project of Erasmus+ which means that each participant will receive recognition for their participation - the YouthPass certificate.

This will be used to document your learning process and offer visibility to the skills and competences you have acquired.
