Covid19 and Youth Mobility - What perspectives?


In the context of the Covid19 recovery, GEYC joined an expert talk on the perspectives of the Youth Mobility. Our colleague, Gabriel Brezoiu, General Manager of GEYC raised the importance of a more flexible and inclusive programme, perhaps in the context of the successor programme of Erasmus+.

Thus, we emphasized the following suggestions:
  • introducing virtual exchanges as a format to complement the existing actions;
  • adopting a more flexible financial allocation scheme by allowing and funding some activities to be taken online:
  1. some transnational project meetings (perhaps 50% of the meetings can be online);
  2. blended learning: a mix of virtual and physical training activities for the same group of participants; 
  3. advanced planning visits for youth exchanges;
  • allocating a force-majeure budget of up to 1% of the total budget available, at the discretion of the agencies implementing the programme to be awarded as an additional grant for the extreme force majeure situations, for risks appearing during the implementation of the physical mobility and that could not have avoided even all risk management measures would have been taken.

This digital guide is based on the results of the “Youth Workers 2.0” strategic partnership project supported by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union. As a joint effort of the Asociación EuropeYou (Spain), the Österreichische Jungarbeiterbewegung (Austria), the Group of the European Youth for Change (Romania) and the Institute for Cultural Relations Policy (Hungary), this booklet is aimed at providing to youth workers the resources and good practices in order to improve their knowledge of usage of different digital tools and making them understand what kind of skills are needed in different contexts.
