Background

The Euro-Mediterranean Youth Programme (Euro-Med Youth, http://www.euromedyouth.net) is a regional programme set up within the framework of the third chapter of the Barcelona Process entitled “partnership in social, cultural and human affairs". The Barcelona Declaration, adopted in 1995, laid down the foundations for the Euro-Med Youth Programme and stressed that ‘youth exchanges should be the means to prepare future generations for a closer co-operation between the Euro-Mediterranean partners’.

The Euro-Med Youth Programme focuses on activities promoting non-formal education, intercultural learning and active citizenship among young people, youth leaders and youth workers operating within the framework of youth organisations and civil organisations dealing with youth. The Programme has been designed to facilitate encounters, partnerships and networks within the Euro-Mediterranean cooperation.

Launched in 1999, the Programme has now entered its fourth phase. The Euro-Med Youth Programme Phase I (1999-2001) was based on the experience acquired with youth exchanges in Europe, while taking into account the needs of the Mediterranean partners. It consisted of the following Actions: youth exchanges, voluntary service and support measures (for youth workers and youth organisations). The Phase II of the Programme (2002-2004) carried on the same programme Actions of Euro-Med Youth Phase I and enlarged its scope by giving special priority to strengthening the support structures of the Euro-Med Youth Programme. Following the recommendations of the mid-term assessment, and similarly to the European Union Youth Programme, the overall management of the Programme Euro-Med Youth Phase III (2005-2008) was transferred from the European Commission headquarters in Brussels to the national authorities responsible for youth in the Mediterranean partner countries and territories (decentralisation).

Euro-Med Youth Units (EMYU) were consequently nominated and set up in the 9 involved countries and territories in order to manage the Programme. They were in charge of launching the procedure, selecting and contracting the projects and monitoring the projects in the field. This implementation modalities remains the same for the Euro-Med Youth Programme Phase IV which is funding this Call for Proposals.
