The Erasmus+ Youth Participation Initiatives could be a great way to support young people's participation in this year's European Day of Sustainable Communities (EDSC) and in the wider Communities for Future (CfF) initiative. Young people wishing to apply can do so through their national agency, highlighting in their application their proposal for a local community initiative and their intention to link this to the EDSC and CfF. The deadline for application is 23 February 2022 for actions taking place between 1 June and 31 December 2022.

Please circulate this widely within your networks.
