Aligned with the Youth Action Plan, the Lab is guided by three pillars of action:

1 – Engage: Further improve youth participation and inclusion in the AU-EU Partnership, in decision-making and in policy-making processes at all levels.

2 – Empower: Provide youth with skills and tools they need to thrive.

3 – Connect: Support joint youth-led cooperation initiatives by youth in Africa, Europe and the Diaspora, in line with the priorities of the AU-EU partnership.


The global objective of the AU-EU Youth Lab and this call for proposals is to contribute to the empowerment of youth in Africa and to strengthen their involvement in active, meaningful and innovative ways.

The specific objectives are:
