EuroPeers are young people who have gathered European experiences of their own under the EU's youth programme and want to share them with their peers. They may have gone abroad with the European Voluntary Service or dealt with European issues as participants in a youth initiative.
EuroPeers report on their experiences and talk to their peers about the Erasmus+ YOUTH IN ACTION programme, the European Solidarity Corps and other mobility schemes for young people. EuroPeers either organise their own events or may be invited by schools, youth welfare offices or cultural centres to speak. All EuroPeers perform these activities voluntarily.
Save the Date: 10 - 13 October 2019: International Network Meeting in Utrecht (NL)
European elections: In February German EuroPeers came together in Hannover to think about what they could do to motivate (young) people to vote in the European elections.
One of the results of the meeting in Hannover and the process afterwards was the creation of an EuroPeers-Facebook-frame containing the EuroPeers-Logo and the slogan „Tell your Peers to vote“. You can find it on www.facebook.com/profilepicframes under the tag EuroPeers Go Vote.
Another outcome is a Facebook-campaign consisting of pictures and short statements of EuroPeers in English. We are going to publish 15 photos and respective slogans until the election days. You can find them on the EuroPeers-Facebook-page: www.facebook.com/EuroPeers/
Feel free to share this content also in national networks, so the reach of the campaign would gain more momentum.
The European EuroPeer project is based on a common understanding with specific aims:
The European EuroPeers project had some predecessor projects in different countries. These projects were developed by the National Agecies of the EU’s youth programme.
In May 2014 these six countries gathered for a strategic planning meeting and shaped a common understanding and vision for a Europeanisation of the peer projects existing at national level.
Other countries have started peer projects or are interested in joining the common European project.
