Memorandum of Understanding between the 3 networks
ERYICA, Eurodesk and the European Youth Card Association (EYCA) are three European organisations committed to promoting quality youth information services, youth mobility, and to foster young people’s autonomy and active participation in society. The three information networks signed a Memorandum of Understanding on 11 September 2016 in Brussels in order to strengthen their cooperation.
This cooperation is ongoing: the 3 networks now publish a joint newsletter, have published a joint position paper “Engage. Inform. Empower.” on the role of learning mobility and youth information in the framework of the future EU Youth Strategy. The networks also worked together on an Erasmus+ project: 'Reach More Young People: Promotion of Youth Work and Youth Information Services', from January to June 2017. The project aimed at broadening understanding of practices and policies in youth work and youth information internationally and at enhancing the modernisation and effectiveness of youth work and youth information services. A joint training was organised in Brussels on 5-7 April 2017, and a collection of good practices was produced to showcase innovate examples of how to reach out and engage young people. We are looking forward to seeing further cooperation between our 3 networks in the future!
