EUTeens4Green: become actors of the green transition – Regional policy

09/22/2022

The EUTeens4Green call for proposals is open and gives young people the opportunity to be actors in the green transition in Europe.

EUTeens4Green offers the opportunity for young people to participate in decision-making in EU cohesion policy. It focuses on regions that will be most impacted by the transition to climate neutrality, as they are heavily dependent on fossil fuels or carbon-intensive industries. Young people can help identify people at risk of exclusion as a result of the transition, suggest actions to involve these people in their territory and choose topics that are close to them.

The call for project proposals is dedicated to young people between the ages of 15 and 24 residing in one of the territories indicated in the map below (i.e. the preliminary analysis by the European Commission of the eligibility territory to the Just Transition Fund).

Young people, individually, in groups or in associations, are invited to submit proposals for the involvement of people in their community negatively impacted by the green transition. Projects must be completed in a maximum of 12 months.

The budget for the call is €700,000. The maximum financial support per project is €10,000.

For more information, please visit the EUTeens4Green website.

To learn more about the project and the application process, join a dedicated webinar every Wednesday and Saturday at 6:00 p.m. CET until 02 November 2022.

The call for project proposals closes on November 03, 2022.
