Are you interested in enhancing youth participation? Curious about the participation opportunities of the European Union’s youth programmes? Wondering where and how to begin?

S.A.L.T.O. Youth has launched an online learning session that ran from 1st to 24th June 2021. Six stand-alone online information sessions to present different opportunities and priorities of Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps 2021-2027. And also to share SALTO-Youth Resource Centres’ strategic actions and offers to support quality in the programmes.

Young people participation, as a process, can happen anywhere and everywhere. For example, it can happen either at home or online, in formal or non-formal settings, on an individual basis or as a group. Youth participation is an important concept for young people, adults and the society. The reasons being in terms of empowerment, respect of human rights, efficiency and people’s development.

Think Tank on Youth Participation

If you have missed the online learning session, S.A.L.T.O. Youth provides an always-available source for learning on young people participation.

The Think Tank was established by SALTO PI in 2018. Its purpose is to define challenges around young people participation, to propose priorities, to co-create solutions and synergies among stakeholders, considering the cross-sectoral dimension.

The Think Tank’s work contributes in developing new or additional expertise for:

  • the National Agencies of Erasmus+/European Solidarity Corps;
  • youth workers;
  • youth organisations and young people;
  • key stakeholders involved in European youth programmes, such as the European Commission and the Youth Partnership.

The Think Tank meets regularly on the basis of projects and needs.

The resources, materials and information about young people participation are available on the Participation Pool.
