France: the call for projects in support of decentralised cooperation “Youth III” is open!

18 January 2017

The Delegation to the External Action of Local and Regional Governments (DAECT) at the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development opens the third part of its Call for projects “Youth”. It aims to support initiatives on mobility in the fields of vocational training for young people, and European and international mobility within the framework of volunteering. 

This call is open from 16 January to 17 April 2017, for projects with a total duration of 12 to 24 months. It will be reopened as from 1st December, for the 2018 projects.
It is an opportunity for local and regional authorities to consolidate their actions towards young people, to bring forward new initiatives in the field of mobility and to strengthen their European partnerships and twinning. More than 320 young people benefited from the two previous programs, at European and international level.
As part of this call for projects, communities are invited to submit their projects on the following actions:
  • Welcoming and sending young volunteers in the framework of decentralised cooperation projects, while respecting the principles of reciprocity, gender equality and social diversity;
  • Supporting exchanges between vocational training institutions in cooperation territories, in order to increase the possibilities for international and European mobility between learners, teachers and trainers;
  • Developing exchanges related to the strengthening of the capacities of the communities in terms of vocational training (governance, structuring training offers, etc.), which is key to an inclusive and sustainable economic development of the territories;
  • Supporting the dynamics of exchanges, creating and/or strengthening vocational training opportunities on the territories.
Full settlement of the call for proposals, with all its modalities (in French).

To prepare your response to this call, you can use the guidance document (in French) “Youth, Mobility, Territories: Recommendations for external actions of the territories” prepared within the framework of the National Commission for Decentralised Cooperation upstream of The setting up of calls for projects “Youth”.
