EUTeens4Green, a project co-funded by the European Union, has extended its call for submissions until January 9, 2023. Young people aged 15-24 will receive financial support up to 10.000 Euros to implement local action in their community in regions in the European Union most affected by the transition to a low-carbon economy.
The EUTeens4Green call targets youngsters and groups of young people or associations that live or, are established in one of the identified Just Transition regions (see link below). They are encouraged to be innovative and suggest activities that include their local community in the green transformation.
To ensure an inclusive process and active participation of disadvantaged groups, the EUTeens4Green consortium is cooperating with local facilitators who help the applicants, in their languages, with preparing their project proposals, as well as providing them guidance throughout the entire implementation. In addition, the consortium hosts instructive webinars twice a week to assist answer questions from anybody interested in applying for financing.
The call for applications closes on 9 January 2023. The extension of the deadline was decided upon the large interest triggered by the initiative and to offer the opportunity to more young people to apply. After the announcement of the winning projects in the course of February 2023, projects will kick off in March 2023.
