The European Youth Foundation (EYF) has launched a special call for local or national youth organisations that are looking for funding for activities demonstrating solidarity and support to all persons affected by the COVID-19 crisis.
A pilot activity is an “intervention”, namely an activity addressing a contextual societal challenge affecting young people at local level.
It should be based on innovation or on replication of best practices. These activities should have clear links to and an impact on the local context.
Priority will be given to pilot activities that aim at:
- Reaching out to and supporting particularly vulnerable groups of people, including homeless, refugees and asylum-seekers, people with disabilities, people living in isolation or in remote communities;
- Support to health, social and educational services;
- Education and awareness-raising of the importance of human rights in responses to COVID-19 crisis.
All pilot activities must respect the sanitary and safety measures put in place by the competent authorities at national and/or local level.
Furthermore, youth organisations are strongly encouraged to co-ordinate their activities with the competent authorities and to indicate this in their project proposal.
