REBUILD will empower youth organisations/informal groups of young people, and underrepresented young people and enhance their democratic participation, dialogue, civic engagement and networking at local and EU level. This will ensure and support the rebuilding of inclusive and greener societies, able to better adapt and respond to the challenges of the COVID-19 emergency.
The action will first map social solidarity and environmental/green lifestyle initiatives carried out by youth organisations/informal groups during and in the aftermath of the crisis, and strengthen their capacities by stimulating an exchange of good practices and developing local and transnational networks. The methodology used will be through the arrangement of local round-tables and a Youth-net forum, bringing together 48 members from local networks in 6 implementation countries.
Building on the good practices presented as Webzines and on the REBUILD Toolbox & Youth Manual, 168 underrepresented young people will be trained in project design, implementation, and awareness raising campaigning to foster innovative forms of civic participation. Young people divided in teams and guided by Youth Ambassadors, will be directly involved in implementing their own initiatives, and in promoting them through the REBUILD Campaigns during National Contests.
A winning team will be selected in each country during Local Festivals reaching out to 100 participants per country.
