ENRYP - European Network of Regional and Local Youth Platforms

ENRYP - European Network of Regional and Local Youth Platforms is a project funded by the Erasmus + program, which aims to create a space where young people involved in local youth platforms in various EU countries can share and exchange good practices on topics such as youth participation, active citizenship, EU and social inclusion without other intermediary structures of young people.

• Sharing and exchanging good practices related to the youth area, namely youth participation, active citizenship, EU awareness and social innovation.
• Establish a European network of regional and/or local youth platforms
(youth forums, councils, parliaments or other similar structures) in legal terms with an appropriate governance structure.
• Strengthen international cooperation between youth platforms operating at a regional and local level in several EU countries.
• Increase youth participation and promote the empowerment of young people at the local level.
