The North-South Centre of the Council of Europe is launching a call for proposals for youth-led projects taking place in the Euro-Mediterranean region connected with the key findings and recommendations of the 2018 Lisbon Forum on "Youth, Peace and Security in the Euro-Mediterranean region" which took place on the 15-16 November in Lisbon. The deadline for submission of applications is 25 August 2019.
The call aims to co-fund regional and/or local projects which promote youth engagement in peace, security and democratic processes in the Euro-Mediterranean region. In particular, it aims at recognizing the role of young people in democratic promotion, social cohesion, peace building – all elements within the youth, peace and security (YPS) agenda. Young people’s courage, creativity, innovation, resilience and efforts constitute the “connecting tissue” to bridge the different levels of engagement toward a sustainable peace.
This call takes place in the framework of the Joint Programme of the European Union and the Council of Europe “Ensuring sustainable democratic governance and human rights in the Southern Mediterranean” (South Programme III - 2018-2020).
