Activating Citizens – municipalities making use of the European Solidarity Corps

This online event will highlight the various possibilities of the European Solidarity Corps to promote voluntary engagement and boost employability and active citizenship in local communities.

The European Solidarity Corps Programme is the programme of the European Union for promoting solidarity as a value. It offers young people the opportunity to make a meaningful contribution to solidarity in society and strengthening their local communities in return.

Aims

The seminar aims to motivate and support municipalities to make use of the European Solidarity Corps Programme. We will explore how to bring sustainable value to local communities by supporting the social innovation and employability of young people.

Youth organisations are highly recommended to apply together with a representative of a municipality as a tandem.

Accessibility

International sign language interpreters will be present at the event.

Practical information

You can apply until 6 October 2021. Approximately 30 participants will participate.

The event will take place online on 2 and 3 November.
