Even during a global pandemic, YEU adapted its activities to continue its work. For that reason, the events had to move to the online space, always maintaining the quality that we are all used to. In the first three months of 2021, YEU organized six online events, with 260 participants.
Moreover, the Office team has grown, with new faces that are getting increasingly familiar – HEY Maya, Rita, Sabine and Andrea.
YEU has been working on new projects this year, such as KID_Actions, Plan B, EDUSports, WTSB, and Brave New You Reloaded, which has been distinguished as a good practice project by the EACEA. Additionally, we have new partnerships, as is the case of FBK, Labirinto Coop, Amnesty Italy, EUN.
Regarding advocacy work, Ismael Paez Cívico made an intervention at the Youth Working Party of the EU Council on involvement and youth participation. Furthermore, our newly elected President, Nami Isaki, was elected for another Advisory Council on Youth mandate (2022-2023). Lastly, Tamara Gojkovic was elected as a Board member of Civil Society Europe.
The future plans for YEU involve more face-to-face events from September 2021 onwards, a more environmentally friendly approach (YEU is going green!) and new projects!
We will be keeping you updated!
