Europe Goes Local is an international project funded through the Erasmus+ Programme. The core aim of the project is to raise the quality of local youth work in particular through enhanced cooperation between various stakeholders that are active at the municipal level.
The Partnership currently involves about 200 members who represent around 120 municipalities from 22 participating countries.
The Partnership also intends to have a multiplying effect by connecting to various activities of the partners and spreading project results to a wide range of stakeholders. This Strategic Partnership is a platform for multi-level initiatives. Large-scale events, mapping exercises and network-wide actions are coordinated at the European level while National Agencies develop national plans to respond to the needs of their partners and create different types of learning opportunities with a transnational dimension.
How can youth work be meaningfully documented and reflected on without wasting too much time? How can communities offer their young people a broad range of exchange opportunities?
