Revised Key Competences on Youthpass

The Youthpass certificates for Erasmus+ projects that have been entered in the Youthpass database on and after August 20, 2019, are using the revised Key Competences framework. More information can be found on our website. Among other explanations, you will find two supportive materials on that link:

  • A leaflet that considers the Key Competences in the context of youth projects and offers some questions to support the reflection in these competence areas;
  • A short document that explains the changes between the old and the revised framework that could be important to know in the context of youth projects.

Cities of Learning

Imagine all the learning opportunities in your city available at your fingertips, and the recognition of your learning achievement lined up perfectly on a digital badges portfolio. Cities of Learning is an online platform with an interactive map for youth allowing to pick and choose learning opportunities based on their passion and interests. They can browse the map of their area, choose an activity or another opportunity of their liking, sign up, take part, check-in and earn a digital badge. The initiative in Europe is developed through the strategic partnership project “Connected Spaces of Learning in Europe”, supported by the EU Erasmus+ programme and implemented by nine organisations from Germany, Spain, Lithuania, Netherlands, France and Ireland. You can also find short further information in the pdf documents here and here.
