Careers in the Common Good /Erasmus+ 2021 Youth Week

Application Deadline: May 15th 2021

The 2021 Youth Week will take place in a quiet location near Budapest, 30 July–8 August.* In addition to a full complement of interactive workshops and panels on human rights, sustainability, social entrepreneurship and the 21st-century job market, participants will practise hands-on learning to develop their own Social Projects. With the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals as a framework, participants identify and work to address a need in their communities.

We believe that learning should neither start nor end in the classroom—and that self-care and self-reflection are as important as input. We bring this to life in Budapest, where participants spend a full day exploring the vibrant city; in the Pilis forest, where an experienced guide leads a day-long hike; and in evening cultural nights, when participants have the opportunity to share their cultures with each other.

Participants work closely with facilitators and each other throughout the week and are provided with preparation materials and encouraged to seek out sources and angles that interest them most. This gives participants not only a better opportunity to drive their own learning, but also to foster research, teaching and public speaking skills. They also have the chance to present their Social Projects at an Open House with young professionals from the region.

Youth Week 2021 is co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union. Participant contribution is €30, with waivers available. Nationals and residents of Hungary, Poland, Czechia, Slovakia and Serbia are encouraged to apply.

*Youth Week is scheduled to take place outside Budapest. Should the global situation require it, we are prepared to switch to an online format.
