Aims & objectives

EuroPeers are young people who have participated in the Youth in Action/Erasmus+ programme and want to share their experiences with their peers and motivate young people to become active and explore Europe. To this end, they organize various projects and events, including workshops in schools, cultural centers and youth clubs and exhibitions. EuroPeers was founded by the German national agency for the Youth in Action Program 'Jugend für Europa'. Over the last eight years it has been successful in German-speaking Europe. The EuroPeer project has become an example for Best Practice for the European Commission.
