Inclusion and Diversity Strategy for Youth

What measures and actions does Erasmus+: Youth in Action (2014-2020) have to support inclusion and diversity projects? The Inclusion & Diversity Strategy lists the specific possibilities for youth work with young people with fewer opportunities.

It is a strategy for inclusion AND diversity – these are two sides of the same coin. On the one hand we need to do extra efforts to include young people with fewer opportunities, but on the other hand we also need to positively manage the diversity that different groups add to our lives.

Why is this ID Strategy needed?

  • To achieve even greater impact in targeting young people with fewer opportunities
  • To ensure that Erasmus+ responds positively to inclusion & diversity in the youth field.
  • To create a transparent frame to make inclusion & diversity projects easier.

How can the ID Strategy help you?

  • The Strategy helps you to understand the current political context.
  • It gives you a clear idea whom & what do we talk about.
  • It presents possibilities and support features in Erasmus+ Youth in Action for inclusion and diversity projects.
  • The ID Strategy gives you tips and practical guidance on how to organise quality inclusion and diversity projects.
  • It hopefully inspires you through a number Inclusion & Diversity project examples.

Where does the ID Strategy come from?

The whole of 2014, SALTO Inclusion and SALTO Cultural Diversity consulted inclusion & diversity experts to refresh and upgrade the previous Inclusion Strategy to fit it to Erasmus+: Youth in Action. On 18 December 2014, the Erasmus+ Programme Committee adopted the new "Inclusion & Diversity Strategy".

The Inclusion and Diversity Strategy will be officially launched during Youth Week on 7 May 2015.
