Youth join hands

Join hands for Europe and solidarity!

Join your hands together for Europe! As part of the 2017 European Youth Week and as a way to encourage young people to join the European Solidarity Corps, we invited everyone across Europe to stand up and unite their hands in human chains to show their solidarity and commitment to continue building an inclusive and diverse EU. You could do it before, during or after European Youth week from 1 to 7 May.

Youth changing lives

Meet young Europeans who are changing lives

How do you encourage young people to become more active citizens? In the past, young Europeans participated in society by voting in elections or getting involved in community activities. These aren’t the only options. For European Youth Week 2017, we found 33 people who changed the lives and mind-set of thousands by doing something truly meaningful. Supported by Erasmus+, they encourage more young people to get engaged, make their voices heard and move the walls.
