Start your New Year with a New Challenge!

If you were participating in an Erasmus+ project, but haven’t submitted the application yourself or your application didn’t receive the grant, then this Online Challenge is for you!

International Project Challenge aims to challenge and support young people in submitting the Erasmus+ or European Solidarity Corps (ESC) application by the first deadline 23.02.2022, within 5 weeks only!

During the International Project Challenge you will:

  • learn about project management
  • e-meet other young people from Estonia, Germany, Italy, Latvia, Slovenia, Netherlands and beyond
  • find international partner(s) for the project
  • develop the project application together with your partner(s)
  • get tailored and quality support from mentors, who will help you to transfer your project idea into the application form –  maximum 3 hours weekly, online
  • create different online visuals (of your choice) to show the progress of work – to be promoted weekly via your social media channels
  • receive an award if you succeed to submit the application
