Activating citizens – municipalities making use of the European Solidarity Corps


20-21 June 2022 | Online, Bulgaria

Seminar, 20-21 June 2022 | Online, Bulgaria

The aims of the seminar

The main aim of the seminar is to motivate and support municipalities to make use of the European Solidarity Corps Programme as a tool for social cohesion and solidarity. We will explore how to bring a sustainable surplus value in the local community by supporting the active engagement of young people in voluntary activities or solidarity projects.

Content of the seminar

The event will show the funding opportunities of the new European Solidarity Corps Programme 2021-2027 to demonstrate how the programme works in practice.

Inspiring examples from Europe and the partner regions will illustrate how municipalities and their youngsters can benefit from the European Solidarity Corps.

The event will showcase how volunteering within the European Solidarity Corps can foster social innovation and can lead to a sustainable surplus value in communities.

Group Work sessions will offer space for exchange and counselling.

There will be space to network and exchange good practices.

Opportunities for municipalities that want to strengthen their existing networks through involving the young generation will be part of the seminar as well.

Target group

The seminar offers opportunities for

representatives of municipalities, who have experience in European topics and are interested in incorporating young people into their international activities

representatives of municipalities from youth work or active citizenship, who are interested in funding opportunities for their local projects

representatives from organisations from the field of youth work, who closely cooperate with their municipality and local community.

Youth organisations are highly recommended to apply together with a representative of a municipality as a tandem.

Implementation of the seminar

The seminar will involve approx. 30 participants from all over Europe and the partner regions (Western Balkans, Eastern Partnership Countries, South-Mediterranean countries).

The seminar will be implemented online via ZOOM and other tools, from 20-21 June 2022 (two half-day long sessions from 9:30 - 15:00 with breaks included). The seminar is hosted by the Bulgarian National Agency for E+ and ESC, the SALTO European Solidarity Corps Resource Centre and the European Goes Local network.
