CREATE4YOUth is a TC focused on the strengthening the democratic participation and autonomy in Youth, specially in rural areas of Europe, as they are facing aging and depopulation.

Youth Workers will be given various tools and methods by using multicultural dialogue, empiric data and non-formal education and at the end of the project stepby-step methods and activity descriptions that can be directly transferred to their daily work to their youth and communities.

The project idea of CREATE4YOUth arises from the experience of partner organizations, for example Partners which had several experiences over the past years with organizing, managing and implementing international projects, youth exchanges, training courses, strategic partnership projects for innovation and good practices, local events and workshops as well as those which has experience working with youth in rural areas with fewer opportunities and with policies on returning youth to the rural areas.

Registration is open until form is closed. Closed form mean we already finished choosing participants and therefore it is not possible to apply anymore.

Selected participants have to participate in a 30-minute online webinar before departure / date to be specified. Since all these projects are funded by the EU and since the goal of the EU and many projects is to encourage as many young people as possible to be interested in the EU and come to vote in next year’s European elections. That’s why we decided to hold a short 30-minute webinar about how the EU works and the European elections for all selected participants.
