About the project

The primary objective of CREAction 4 EU is to promote youth participation in European civic life through digital means. The project addresses this challenge through innovative ways of building up the capacity of youth to be able to contribute and demonstrate their solidarity in a time of crisis, participating in the decision-making process and taking responsibility for shaping a sustainable common future. The active citizenship and the value of solidarity will be vehiculated through creative channels, both online and offline, and fostered by social entrepreneurship in the creative sectors.


The multiplier event will close this 24-month project, presenting all the outputs (Handbook for Youth Workers, CREAction4EU Ambassadors digital course, Learning scenarios for youth and Digital Guide) and exploring how youth work can further support young people in their creative business ventures, especially in times of crisis. The project is coordinated by RESOPA (France) and implemented with the help of GEYC, InSite Drama (Hungary) and JO Education (Italy). The conference is organized in partnership with the European Parliament Liaison Office in Romania.



We are very excited to welcome you in Bucharest and reflect together on how youth work can better support creative entrepreneurs, especially in and after times of crisis!
