(04 May 2022) – The Commission is launching a €1 million call for proposals to help local young people create projects to develop their regions.
This is the first concrete action of the renewed strategy for the outermost regions of the EU which was adopted yesterday. This call for proposals is the first stage of a two-year project which, within the framework of the European Year of Youth 2022, will support at least 70 actions of young people aged 15 to 24.
It will select an entity located in an outermost region which will be responsible for implementing the project. The objective is to help young people in these vulnerable and remote regions to develop actions adapted to their regions in order to improve the quality of life, development and growth.
Young people will be expected to develop ideas and actions for the community linked to EU priorities such as green and digital transition, socio-economic recovery, and equality and inclusion. A call to action for young people to benefit from these grants will be published by the end of the year.
