European Youth Week is a celebration of the massive contribution young people make to Europe. This year the slogan is ‘Shape it, move it, be it’ and the focus of the week is very much on solidarity and the social commitment of young people. In Ireland there are lots of exciting events being organised both by Léargas and the Eurodesk Ireland Network. So check out what is happening in your area and celebrate European Youth Week from 1-7 May!
Our local Youth Week events will be a chance for you to learn about funding opportunities under Erasmus+ with a special emphasis on European Voluntary Service. These events will look at how we challenge prejudice and promote solidarity through the method of ‘Living Library’. We will also introduce how EU youth policy is connected with the work you are doing! Newcomers to Erasmus+ are especially welcome.
