Erasmus+ is the EU Programme in the Fields of Education, Training, Youth and Sport for the period 2021-2027. Education, training, youth and sport are all key areas that support citizens in their personal and professional development. High quality and inclusive education and training, as well as informal and non-formal learning, ultimately equip young people and participants of all ages with the qualifications and skills that are needed for their meaningful participation in democratic society, intercultural understanding and successful transition in the labour market. Building on the success of the programme in the period 2014-2020, Erasmus+ strengthens its efforts to increase the opportunities offered to more participants and to a wider range of organisations by focusing on its qualitative impact and contributing to more inclusive and cohesive, greener and digitally fit societies.
CAPACITY BUILDING IN THE FIELD OF YOUTH
In order to achieve its objectives, the Erasmus+ Programme foresees the implementation of different Key Actions in the 2021-2027 period including KA1 – Learning Mobility of Individuals, KA2 – Cooperation Among Organisations and Institutions and KA3 – Support to Policy Development and Cooperation. The WEMusic project falls under Key Action 2, which is titled “Cooperation Among Organisations and Institutions”.
Capacity-building projects are international cooperation projects based on multilateral partnerships between organisations active in the field of youth in Programme and third countries not associated to the Programme including the Western Balkans and the South Mediterranean region.
Capacity-building projects aim to support international cooperation and policy dialogue in the field of youth and non-formal learning, as a driver of sustainable socio-economic development and well-being of youth organisations and young people. More than that, Projects within Capacity Building in the Field of Youth aims to raise the capacity of organizations working with young people outside formal learning, promote non-formal learning activities in third countries especially targeting young people with fewer opportunities and supporting the development of youth work in third countries – improving its quality and recognition.
