13th University on Youth and Development - call for activities/partners and the activity proposal form

By EU-CoE youth partnership


Teaser :
In response to the issues and challenges facing young people worldwide, the core partners of the University on Youth and Development have agreed on “Youth Rights” as the main priority for the Network of Universities on Youth and Global Citizenship for period 2012-2015 and “Youth Rights” as the Joint theme for the 13th University on Youth and Development.

News :

The University on Youth and Development is an activity jointly organised by the North-South Centre of the Council of Europe, the Spanish Government (INJUVE), the European Youth Forum (YFJ), the Spanish Youth Council (CJE) and other international youth organisations.

Since its first edition in 2000, the University takes place once a year bringing together representatives of youth organisations and youth movements from all over the world who gather in the CEULAJ (Euro-Latin-American Youth Centre) to discuss, train and be trained as well as to take political action around the main issues on the global agenda.
In 2012 the University on Youth and Development will be gathering for the 13th time and therefore renewed hopes and aspirations, objectives and challenges are launched to the partners to reinforce this as the space and home of Global Youth Work and of the Global Youth Movement.

Main Goals

  • To create a political space where youth can act upon and acknowledge the role they play in Global Development.
  • To initiate and encourage a debate aimed at defining the role youth play in elaborating development policies and in co-operation for development initiatives.
  • To facilitate a process aimed at defining and implementing projects within the field of youth.

Date and length of the Activities
The University will be held from the 16th to 23rd September 2012.
The main arrival day for participants to the University is the 16th of September and the Departure day is the 23rd. Activities are therefore foreseen to have the length of 6 days starting on the 17th and closing on the 22nd of September. Partners should also consider the weekend 15th to 16th for preparatory meetings and preparatory work.

Main Criteria for the activities:

  • organised by youth and youth serving organisations and having young people as target group (age between 18 -35);
  • have a theme and aims that constitute a relevant contribution to the aims of the University, (activities related to capacity building and youth empowerment)
  • have a Global or Interregional (i.e. Euro-Mediterranean, Afro-Asian, Euro-African, etc) scope, both in terms of the participants and the content. The University partners will particularly value activities involving Asian participants.
  • involve a maximum of 25 participants;
  • seek gender balance in terms of the participants
  • commitment of the partner towards the Joint Programme of the University

Activities organised in partnership between various organisations and resulting in partnerships and co-operation processes are highly encouraged. The University itself is result of these kinds of synergies.

The enclosed form proposing an activity to be held at the 13th University on Youth and Development should be returned to the North-South Centre by email, by 17th February 2012 to nsc.youthandgobalisation@coe.int
