On October 17th, Youthmakers Hub organized a webinar in the framework of the EcoActiZenship project titled “Transform your idea into a project with EU.” This event aimed at empowering participants to bring their innovative ideas to life with the support of EU funding, inform them about the European Solidarity Corps Programme, guide them through the project design process, and help them prepare funding proposals.
Our speaker, Spyridoula Loukopoulou, emphasized the importance of addressing critical questions before submitting a proposal and finding the right team to support the project. Participants were divided into groups to collaborate and brainstorm ideas for solidarity projects. Under the guidance of Spyridoula, they refined their ideas into feasible project proposals that could receive funding.
The webinar was a resounding success, with the participants gaining a deeper understanding of the European Solidarity Corps Programme and the project development process. It gave them the tools and knowledge to create impactful projects and secure funding. This success underscores the value of such educational initiatives in empowering young individuals to contribute to their communities and promote solidarity actively.
