Youth participation activities

This action 1 supports activities outside formal education and training that encourage, foster and facilitate young people’s participation in Europe’s democratic life at local, regional, national and European level.

Objectives of the Action

Erasmus+ supports youth-driven local, national, transnational and international participation projects encouraging youth participation in Europe's democratic life and following one or more of the following objectives:

  • provide young people with opportunities to engage and learn to participate in civic society, by offering pathways of engagement for young people in their daily lives but also in democratic life, aiming for a meaningful civic, economic, social, cultural and political participation of young people from all backgrounds, with special focus on those with fewer opportunities;
  • raise young people's awareness about European common values and fundamental rights and contribute to the European integration process, including through contribution to the achievement of one or more of the EU Youth Goals;
  • develop young people’s digital competences and media literacy (in particular critical thinking and the ability to assess and work with information) with a view to increasing young people’s resilience to disinformation, misinformation and propaganda, as well as their capacity to participate in democratic life;
  • bring together young people and decision makers at local, regional, national and transnational level and/or contribute to the EU Youth Dialogue.

Policy context

The European Union Youth Strategy 2019-2027 sets out a Framework for European cooperation in the youth field, based on the Commission’s Communication of 22 May 2018 on ‘Engaging, Connecting and Empowering young people’. Under the core area ‘Engage’, the EU Youth Strategy aims for a meaningful civic, economic, social, cultural and political participation of young people. The Strategy fosters youth participation in democratic life, supports social and civic engagement and aims to ensure that all young people have the necessary resources to take part in society.

The EU Youth Strategy also includes a Youth dialogue process and in that context, 11 European Youth Goals were developed in 2018, identifying a range of cross-sectoral areas that affect young people’s lives and point out challenges to be tackled in each of them. Based on the input of young stakeholders, each 18-month cycle of the EU Youth Dialogue identifies specific thematic priorities, designated to become the focus of implementing the EU Youth Strategy over the given period.

Thematic strategies in the youth field

The Erasmus+ Programme seeks to promote youth participation, reinforcement of the quality of informal and non-formal learning processes and development of quality youth work. Further support in these areas is available through specific thematic strategies, such as Youth Participation Strategy, Youthpass and the European Training Strategy (ETS).

Description of the activities

Youth participation activities are non-formal learning activities revolving around active participation of young people. Such activities aim to enable young people to experience exchanges, cooperation, cultural and civic action. Supported activities should help the participants strengthen their personal, social, citizenship and digital competences and become active European citizens.

This Action supports the use of alternative, innovative, smart and digital forms of youth participation, including the extension of youth participation into a variety of sectors and spaces (healthcare services, sports facilities etc., regardless of whether these are operated by the public or private sector), opening pathways to active participation for young people from all backgrounds.

Youth participation activities can be actively used to conduct dialogues and discussions between young people and decision-makers to promote the active participation of young people in democratic life in Europe. As a concrete result, young people are able to make their voices heard (through the formulation of positions, proposals and recommendations), especially on how youth policies should be shaped and implemented in Europe. Youth participation activities can also take the form of civic action and youth activism, allowing young people to engage in various ways to raise awareness of issues that matter to them and impose change.

Youth participation activities can be either transnational (implemented in one or more participating countries and involving informal group(s) of young people and/or organisations from several participating countries) or national (implemented at local, regional or national level and involving informal group(s) of young people and/or organisations from a single participating country). National youth participation Activities are particularly suited to testing ideas at the local level and as a tool for following-up previous initiatives to help upscale and further develop successful ideas.

All Youth participation activities, regardless of the level at which they are implemented, need to have a demonstrated European dimension and/or added value and each individual supported activity must clearly contribute to reaching one or more of the Action’s objectives listed above.

Supported activities can take the form of (or a combination of): workshops, debates, role-plays, simulations, use of digital tools (e.g. digital democracy tools), awareness raising campaigns, trainings, meetings and other forms of online or offline interaction between young people and decision-makers, consultations, information and/or cultural events etc. 

Some examples of activities that could be implemented within a project are:

  • face-to-face or online workshops and/or meetings, seminars or other events/processes at local, regional, national or transnational level offering space for information, debate and active participation of young people on issues relevant to their daily lives as active European citizens, ideally including, leading to or following up on interactions with decision-makers and other stakeholders concerned by such issues;
  • consultations of young people identifying topics/issues of specific relevance to them (in local, regional, national or transnational context) and identifying their needs related to participation in addressing such topics/issues;
  • awareness-raising campaigns revolving around participation of young people in democratic life, including information and/or cultural events linked to specific societal challenges relevant to young people;
  • facilitation of access to open, safe and accessible virtual and/or physical spaces for young people, offering effective opportunities for learning to participate in democratic life and processes;
  • simulations of the functioning of democratic institutions and the roles of decision-makers within such institutions.

Projects may or may not include a mobility element and/or events involving physical presence of participants at a specific location. Specific financial support is foreseen for such activities (mobilities and physical events). Wherever relevant, it is highly encouraged to integrate digital activity formats (e.g. webinars, hackathons, various e-participation tools etc.) and/or training regarding the use of digital democracy tools in activities to be implemented within a Youth participation activities project.

A project should consist of different project activities that together contribute to achieving the planned objectives. These activities should be financed primarily through the budget category “project management”, which is a monthly unit contribution. These project activities will typically include project management meetings and ongoing, regular activities of the project. Project activities can be both digital and/or physical and include the young people who are directly involved in the project.

The project may also include one or more Youth participation events.

The term “Youth participation event” covers events that are central to achieving the objectives of the project; they could mark milestones in the project and should stand clearly out from ongoing project activities, by either their content, their size or the profile of their participants. Furthermore, a Youth participation event is a physical event, involving the physical presence of young people and, where relevant, also other participants. A Youth participation event will be attended not only by the members of the informal group or young people in the beneficiary organisations that are directly involved in the overall project activities, but also by a wider audience of young people and/or decision-makers. The duration of the event should be appropriate to the planned activities and expected achievements, and events can be both very short (hours) or have a longer duration. Specific support for the organisation of Youth participation events is available on a “per participant per event” basis, regardless of the event’s duration.

Youth participation projects that have physical project activities or physical Youth participation events that require participants to travel to a venue different from where they reside, can apply for additional funding for mobilities, which is composed of travel and subsistence support. Mobility in Youth participation projects can be both national and international, but should always support a project activity funded through project management costs or a youth participation event (funded through Youth participation events support).

The following types of activities may not be supported under this Action: statutory meetings of organisations or networks of organisations, organisation of partisan political events, physical infrastructure (e.g. the cost of construction/acquisition of buildings and their permanent equipment).

Examples of projects with a strong participation element (not limited to the format of Youth participation activities) and relevant best practices can be found in the Youth Participation Toolkit.

Setting up a project

A project supported by this Action should include one or more of the elements described above. These elements may be combined in a flexible manner, depending on the objectives of the project and the needs of the participating organisation(s) and participants.

A project is implemented by one or more informal groups of young people, one or more organisations, or a combination thereof. The informal group(s) of young people and/or participating organisations must be identified at application stage. Other young people may be involved in the project as participants in some of the activities or as part of the target group for activities. If only an informal group of young people is involved, one of the group members applies on behalf of the group. If several groups or organisations are involved, one of them takes the role of coordinator and applies for the whole project on behalf of the partnership.

A project consists of four stages: planning, preparation, implementation and follow-up. Participating organisations and young people involved in the activities should take an active role in all those stages enhancing thus their learning experience ("activities conceived by young people for young people"). The Youth Participation Toolkit can provide practical ideas and guidance to enhance youth participation.

  • Planning (define the needs, objectives, learning outcomes, activity formats, development of work programme, schedule of activities etc.)
  • Preparation (practical arrangements, set up of agreements with partners, confirmation of the target group(s) of envisaged activities, linguistic/intercultural/learning- and task-related preparation of participants etc.);
  • Implementation of activities;
  • Follow-up (evaluation of the activities, identification and documentation of the learning outcomes of participants, as well as dissemination and use of the project's outcomes). As a part of the follow-up phase, each project should envisage providing feedback on concrete project outcomes to the young participants, including on how such outcomes have been communicated to other relevant stakeholders and/or used by them.   

EU Youth Dialogue

The topics and priorities identified in the context of the EU Youth Dialogue may serve as inspiration for Youth participation activities at all levels. A similar source of inspiration might be found in the EU Youth Goals developed in the EU Youth Dialogue and which identify cross-sectoral areas affecting young people’s lives and pointing out challenges. Furthermore, results of successful Youth participation activities may be used as input for further stages of the EU Youth Dialogue.

Learning Process

A Youth participation activities project needs to envisage support for the reflection process, identification and documentation of individual learning outcomes of all participants [i.e. also participants beyond the informal group(s) of young people implementing the project and/or beyond the young people actively involved in the preparation and implementation of the project], in particular through Youthpass.

Protection and Safety of participants

During the planning and preparation of a project, the issue of protection and safety of the participants should be addressed and all necessary measures to prevent/reduce risks should be foreseen.

Community Building

Inclusion of community-building activities in Youth participation activities projects is strongly encouraged. Wherever possible, such activities should strive to survive beyond the duration of supported projects and become self-sustainable.

Erasmus Youth Quality Standards

The implementation of all activities supported under this Action must follow the Erasmus Youth Quality Standards for organising high quality learning mobility activities. The Erasmus Youth Quality Standards cover the basic principles of the Action, as well as concrete implementation practices for project tasks such as selection and preparation of participants, definition, evaluation and recognition of learning outcomes, sharing of project results, etc. The Erasmus Youth Quality Standards are available here.

Horizontal dimensions

Inclusion and diversity

The Erasmus+ Programme seeks to promote equal opportunities and access, inclusion and fairness across all its actions. Applicants should design accessible and inclusive project activities, taking into account the views of participants with fewer opportunities and involving them in the decision-making process.

Youth participation activities are particularly suitable for inclusion of young people with fewer opportunities:

  • Youth participation activities are designed as a grass-root action format with very flexible parameters (duration, number of participants, national/transnational activities etc.), which can be easily adapted to the specific needs of young people with fewer opportunities;
  • Informal groups of young people carrying out a Youth participation activities project may be supported by a coach2 . The services of a coach could be particularly relevant and helpful to support young people with fewer opportunities in developing and carrying out their projects.
  • The objectives of the action include providing young people with opportunities for learning to participate in civic society, as well as improving digital and media literacy. Projects pursuing these goals can be especially useful for helping young people with fewer opportunities overcome some of the challenges they may be facing.

Youth participation activities are also particularly suitable to work thematically on inclusion and diversity in society, for example to support fight against stereotypes, foster understanding, tolerance and non-discrimination.

Environmental Sustainability

A project should promote environmentally sustainable and responsible behaviour among participants, raising the awareness about the importance of acting to reduce or compensate for the environmental footprint of mobility activities. It should be designed and implemented with environmental consciousness by e.g. integrating sustainable practices such as opting for reusable or eco-friendly materials, reducing waste and recycling, sustainable means of transportation.

Digital transition in the field of youth

The Erasmus+ Programme supports all participating organisations in incorporating the use of digital tools and learning methods to complement their physical activities, to improve the cooperation between partner organisations, and to improve the quality of the activities. The introduction of digital and online elements to lower the threshold for participation of young people with fewer opportunities is encouraged. Through projects and activities that aim to boost digital skills, foster digital literacy and/or develop an understanding of the risks and opportunities of digital technology, the programme can change mindsets and contribute to developing digital and blended approaches in youth activities.

Depending on the design and objectives of the activities, the development of competences and awareness on digital issues, and the use of new technologies can be introduced in physical events or learning mobilities, whereas purely virtual components should be financed from the project management costs. Duly justified expenses for including young people with fewer opportunities can be applied for under inclusion support for participants.

The National Agencies offer a range of training opportunities for youth workers and youth leaders through their Training and Cooperation Activities, including on supporting the digital transformation in the youth field. These offers are published in the European Training Calendar. Inspiration can also be found under the SALTO Tools.

Participation

The Erasmus+ Programme supports all participating organisations in improving the quality of their projects by integrating a participatory dimension, offering young people relevant opportunities to actively engage and participate in the conception and implementation of project activities as a pathway to discovering the benefits of active citizenship and participation in democratic life. Resources for enhancing the participatory dimension of supported projects can be accessed i.a. via the website participationpool.eu. Links with and involvement in existing national, international or (other) EU initiatives and platforms revolving around participation and civic engagement are also encouraged.
