Closing Date: 17.9 2018. The AU-EU Youth Cooperation Hub will enable 42 selected young Africans, Europeans and Diaspora to work with the African Union, the European Union and other relevant stakeholders in developing new approaches, defining the scope of pilot projects and monitoring their implementation in six areas:
- Business, Job Creation & Entrepreneurship
- Culture, Sports & Arts
- Education and Skills
- Environmental Preservation and Climate Change
- Governance, Political Inclusion & Activism
- Peace and Security, including Prevention of Radicalisation and Violent Extremism.
Selected Youth Fellows will be divided into clusters, 7 Youth Fellows per cluster. With the guidance of experts, fellows will work together using a virtual platform to produce regular deliverables linked to their cluster topic.
The 42 Youth Fellows will meet and spend 10 days in Addis Ababa (27 October to 4 November) for a first consultative meeting. Possible field visits will take place twice a year (2019 & 2020). Flights, accommodation, meals and local travel expenses are covered.
Any young person (ages of 18-35) from Africa, Europe or Diaspora with an interest in Africa-EU cooperation is eligible to apply. Applicants are expected to have proven knowledge, practical experience, and demonstrated impact in one of the six thematic areas.
Additional knowledge/experience in any of the three cross-cutting thematic areas (Gender, Migration, and/or Digitalisation) is also desirable; as well as experience working and communicating in international and multicultural teams (including English and French environments).
