Through the joint effort of two universities, two NGOs, an Institute and a youth center, E-UNITE will develop the foundations of the E-UNITE network – an international youth network, which aims to promote community-led initiatives in the fields of tolerance, inclusivity and diversity. The main output of the project – the E-UNITE Online Hub will allow for the convergence of young minds and exchange of ideas, as well as support for such initiatives; likewise, the Online Hub will be a base for exchange of know-how and good practices of youth workers, which are interested in working on those community-led initiatives or alternatively – youth workers, who wish to develop youth networks of their own.
In our current turbulent times, there is a big need for the existence of opportunities, which can lead young people to understanding each other and working together for the better future. Already existing community-led initiatives show that this is an efficient and effective way of creating a safe and inclusive environment for all people. This leads to the belief that an organized communal space, in which youth workers and youth work together and exchange ideas, as well as create and manage such projects together, will only increase the positive impact on societies overall. Our aim as a project will be to help increase the positive impact, promote tolerance, diversity, and bring communities together.
The project is implemented under the framework of the European Commissions’ Programme Erasmus+, within Key Action 2: Cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices, Action: Strategic partnership for youth.
As a partner, Law and Internet Foundation will assist in creating the E-UNITE Online Hub, and will organize the first Multiplier Event of the project - E-UNITE Workshop for youth workers.
