Solidarity in Your Municipality - fostering international work by using European Solidarity Corps

Training Course

10-12 November 2020 | On-line, Finland

This on-line event will highlight the various possibilities the European Solidarity Corps brings to Municipalities, focusing on volunteering.

In Finland municipalities and cities have a long history of using EU youth programs to develop and spark their services. Municipalities can benefit from the European Solidarity Corps programme in many ways, e.g. involving international volunteers in local projects, support local youth in implementing projects or foster the exchange with other communities.

The training brings representatives of municipalities and cities together to promote Volunteering as tool to support solidarity in action.

Participants will get in-depth knowledge about the Solidarity Corps programme, hear and see practical examples and have a chance to find partners for future cooperation. Finland is one of the pioneers in involving municipalities in EU programmes and using the funds to effectively foster youth work, e.g. in youth departments. The event will highlight volunteering projects that have been implemented in municipalities in recent years and how this experience can support other communities and areas in practice

A specific aim is to support the increase of knowledge and competencies of participants and organisations involved. During the event participants will be encouraged to recognize the good practices that could be transferred to their own work.

Target group:

This event is for representatives of municipalities and cities who are interested to have a closer look at European Solidarity Corps possibilities.
