The North-South Centre is launching a call for proposals for youth-led projects taking place in the Euro-Mediterranean region connected with the key findings and recommendations of the 2018 Lisbon Forum on "Youth, Peace and Security in the Euro-Mediterranean region" which took place on the 15-16 November in Lisbon.
Recognising young people’s courage, creativity, innovation, resilience and efforts constitute the “connecting tissue” to bridge the different levels of engagement toward a sustainable peace, the North-South Centre will select four to six regional and/or local projects which promote youth engagement in peace, security and democratic processes in the Euro-Mediterranean region. The 2018 Lisbon Forum prompted the importance of providing spaces and prospects for youth to unfold their potential in order to sustain the youth, peace and security (YPS) UN agenda.
This call takes place in the framework of the Joint Programme of the European Union and the Council of Europe “Ensuring sustainable democratic governance and human rights in the Southern Mediterranean” (South Programme III - 2018-2020).
Deadline for submission of applications: 25 August 2019.
The South Programme III is a joint programme of the Council of Europe and the European Union, financed by the European Union and the Council of Europe and implemented by the Council of Europe.
