The project “Y-FED: Europe is what we make of it” aims to bring the EU closer to its young citizens by developing a proposal for an improved institutional framework of the European Union in line with the European Youth Goals.
The initiative, supported by an Erasmus+ “European Youth Together” grant, will be implemented between January 2020 and July 2021 through a series of capacity-building training courses, public policy hackathons, a large-scale simulation of a reformed EU and advocacy actions. The project partners comprise 18 civil society organisations as well as 2 networks of European and regional decision-makers.
The Y-FED consortium, composed of local and European organisations representing the interests of diverse groups, will ensure that the voices of young people from different countries and socio-cultural backgrounds shape the deliverables of the project.
Out of the Box International (OTB) is in charge of the quality assurance and of the evaluation. Therefore, it will be responsible for the development of quality standards and will ensure the coordination of the monitoring body. OTB will develop quality criteria for the implementation of the project activities based on the input from the partners and the project plan.
