|Erasmus+ is the EU's programme to support education, training, youth and sport in Europe. It provides opportunities for over 4 million Europeans to study, train, and gain experience abroad.
Set to last until 2020, Erasmus+ doesn't just have opportunities for students, but also for a wide variety of individuals and organisations.
|The Federal Government's Child and Youth Plan from the Federal Ministry for Families, Senior Citizens, Women and Youths provides funds for political and cultural child- and youth work in Germany.|
|The State Chancellery of Hesse maintains 6 partnerships with regions and provinces in other countries. The goal of these regional partnerships is the promotion and funding of exchange and cooperation in different areas.
For EYW the State Chancellery funds partner organizations and young people from the partner regions of Emilia Romagna (Italy) and Wielkopolska (Poland).
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.
This will be used to document your learning process and offer visibility to the skills and competences you have acquired.
