LTA Beyond Borders - Neighbours together - Kick-off Event!

Conference – Symposium - Forum

20-24 June 2022 | Paris, France

This meeting will offer you a space to explore and develop collaboration initiatives between programme and neighbouring partner countries within the Erasmus+ and ESC programmes.

The collaboration opportunities between neighbouring partner regions (South East Europe, EuroMed, Eastern Europe and Caucasus) and Programme / Participating countries offered by the EU youth programmes have had a significant impact on participating young people, youth workers and organisations, as well as on the policy level. The programmes have offered spaces for dialogue and cooperation based on mutual needs and interests. Various surveys and studies have highlighted the benefits of such collaboration for both programme and neighbouring partner countries, such as:
-    the development of intercultural competencies,
-    understanding of different geographic, cultural and political life and youth work environments including realities and challenges faced by young people
-    a better recognition of youth work and non-formal learning,
-    a larger participation of young people with fewer opportunities,
-    a better recognition of small local NGOs that can access training activities and opportunities to develop their network at European level.

The regional SALTO Resource Centres (South East Europe, EuroMed, Eastern Europe and Caucasus) have played an instrumental role in enlarging and deepening this collaboration.

The network of the Erasmus+ Youth and Sport and European Solidarity Corps National Agencies and the regional SALTO Resource Centres have decided to use the launch of the new 2021-2027 Programmes to strengthen the collaboration between programme and neighbouring partner countries. The result is the creation of the LTSA (Long-term Strategic Activity) NPC (Neighbouring Partner Countries) that will be launched in June in Paris.

Based on the needs and interests of various stakeholders involved in youth cooperation between programme and neighbouring partner countries, this initiative aims to create new (or renewed) dynamics for this cooperation, and to give more visibility to the experiences and expertise that have been and will be further developed in this field.
