ENRYP II - European Network of Local and Regional Youth Platform
The ENRYP II project builds on the findings and outcomes of the Erasmus+ ENRYP project led by Umbria Youth Forum in Italy and developed between 2017 and 2019. A key finding was the need for establishing a different kind of network, more flexible and including several stakeholders. The concept of the network should overcome the existing traditional ones, such as umbrella organisations composed only of youth organisations or youth representative structures; instead, it should have a multi-stakeholder approach by including, besides youth organisations, also municipalities, CSO, youth workers, youth academics and informal groups of young people.
The main goal of the ENRYP II is to increase youth social and political participation in Portugal, Italy, UK, Hungary and Romania in order to achieve positive changes in young people’s lives and to build better societies.
The specific objectives of the project are:
- to establish a European network as a common space where young people but also relevant stakeholders exchange practices and explore together topics such as youth participation, active citizenship and EU awareness and identity;
- to broaden and deepen political and social participation and understanding of young people at the local and regional level in the 5 countries involved in the project;
- to enable young people to connect with, express their opinions to and influence elected policy-makers, public administrators, interest groups and CSOs within any of the political or social processes affecting their lives.
