Project Summary


The project YOUNG LEADERS INTERNATIONAL MEETING aims to support the youth participation in representative democracies and in civil societies. Moreover, it works to support the participation and engagement of young people and youth organisations in the process of elaboration, realisation, and evaluation of policies through a structured dialogue. One of the main objectives consists in creating or modifying national laws to enhance the youth condition. 

SOS Europa, with all partners involved, wants to use the structured dialogue as a tool to improve the cooperation among young people. Moreover, it  aims to engage a greater number of young people, in particular those with fewer opportunities, in the European policy making process. 

The main objective is “allowing young people to take part of an heterogenous, connected, and inclusive Europe – Ready for the life, Ready for the society. “ This project aims to give people the opportunity to get in touch with those organisations involved in the promotion of active citizenship and in the improvement of youth policies. It involves 48  young people (24 men and 24 women), plus 12 facilitators or experts in the field, for a total amount of 60 participants (28 with fewer opportunities), coming from 12 different countries. 

The project includes a transnational meeting, held in Ciampino, Rome from 27 to 31October 2017 and organised by SOS Europa with the support of all partners.

The activities will be carried out using non formal methods, such as Open Space Technology (OST), Focused Conversation, Future Search Conference, and Structured Dialogue.  The planning and subject of the activities are based on SALTO publications,  such as "Working on Work for All" e "InclusionthroughEmployability". The YouthPass certificate will be delivered to each participant. To disseminate the results of the projects and the programme Erasmus Plus outside the Italian borders, it will be used several means of divulgation.

After the meeting, 12 local events will be organised to share the results of the projects. Each event will see the participation of at least 100 young people, for a total amount of 12000 people. The project has the following objectives:

  • the writing of 12 new law proposals concerning young policies and the approval by national government of 5 of them within the end of the project.
  • the participation of at least 40% of participants in other international mobility projects, SVE included, in the following 8 months.
  • the active participation, as candidate, of 30% of participants in the elections of their own countries.
  • to see involved at least 60% of participants in promoting the active citizenship in their own community.
