The Commission relaunched its €1 million call for proposals to support young people in the outermost regions shape projects to develop their regions.
- 08 March 2023
This call for proposals is the first step of a two-year project that will support at least 70 actions by young people aged 15-24. It will select an entity which will manage the implementation of the project. The aim is to support young people in these vulnerable and remote regions to develop actions tailored to their regions to improve quality of life, development and growth.
Young people will need to develop ideas and community actions linked to EU priorities such as the green and digital transition, socio-economic recovery and equality and inclusion. A call for action for young people to benefit from these grants will be published later in 2023. More details are available here.
Deadline for submitting applications is 31 May 2023 – 17:00 (CET).
The Commission is organising an online information session on this call for proposals for interested organisations.
The information session will take place on 15 March 2023 – from 14:20 until 15:45 (CET).
If you are interested in attending, please register by sending an email to EU-Youth4ORs@ec.europa.eu.
The outermost regions have a special status under the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (Article 349) that provides for specific measures to support these regions, including the tailored application of EU law and access to EU programmes. The action supports the implementation of the Strategy ‘Putting people first, securing sustainable and inclusive growth, unlocking the potential of the EU’s outermost regions’ adopted last May.
