European Solidarity Corps - Solidarity Projects

10 Jan 2024 Libor Zajíc National others

The Solidarity Project is the ideal first project for young people who want to change their neighbourhood for the better. The European Solidarity Corps allows young people to gain valuable experience in a volunteering trip. With the exception of solidarity projects, where young people can apply directly, the Corps involves individuals mainly through organisations, institutions and public or private bodies that organise solidarity activities.
Solidarity projects are a national activity prepared by a team of 5 young people (18-30 years old) who are residents of the Czech Republic with the aim of finding solutions to current and future social problems, strengthening mutual understanding to contribute to positive change and advocate for a more inclusive society. MUNI can also be involved in the project as an umbrella organisation to help the young people with the project administration, but the essential project part is the responsibility of the young people themselves.

Priorities for the European Solidarity Corps 2021-2027 programming period
Inclusion and diversity: involving as wide a range of organisations and individuals as possible in solidarity activities
Sustainability: implementing projects in an environmentally sustainable way; raising participants' awareness of environmental issues
Digitalisation: enabling combined activities; supporting activities aimed at strengthening digital skills and digital literacy
Participation: promoting young people's participation in democratic processes and their civic engagement

The project period lasts 2-12 months. Funding is in the form of a flat rate of 595 euros/month. Coach costs can also be funded, as well as extra costs when a participant with a disadvantage is involved.

The Solidarity Projects activity is announced twice a year, with the current closing date being 20th February 2024 and the next one on 1 October 2024.
If you are interested in submitting this project, please contact the Research and Development Department as soon as possible and no later than 9th February 2024.

All information can be found on the funder's website.
