— Do you know your EU rights? Are you aware of the youth opportunities you have as an EU citizen? —

📣 On Saturday, 18th of June, the ERYICA InfoPeers Ambassadors with the support of the Cyprus Youth Council-Συμβούλιο Νεολαίας Κύπρου-Kıbrıs Gençlik Konseyi, organised an info session on youth opportunities for young people from all the communities of Cyprus!

🎯The event was organised under the project “YInfoPEERS – Youth Ambassadors and YInfoPEERS”. The main aim of the project is to recognise the potential of young people as key multipliers and stakeholders in the design, provision and dissemination of youth information services.

We would like to thank our presenters for joining us in spreading youth information:

Οργανισμός Νεολαίας Κύπρου / Youth Board of CyprusUNFICYP
PlanBe, Plan it Be it
Civic Space / Sivil Alan
Eryica – European Youth Information and Counselling Agency

The main project activities and intellectual outputs consisted of:

  • Co-creating and piloting the Youth InfoPEERs training manual, where young people will become peer educators in youth information and learn about the importance of grassroots level peer-to-peer activities to ensure that more young people know about and make use of youth information and counselling services.

  • Co-creating and piloting the INFObassadors training manual, where participants will learn about advocacy and decision-making processes at the European level.

  • Creating and producing the iAdvocate Online MOOC on carrying out a successful online advocacy campaign designed by young people targeted at young people.

  • Creating and implementing an online campaign together, the theme of which will be decided on during the training, but will be closely related to Youth Goal 4 and the SDGs.

  • Organising a European-level seminar for decision-makers to raise awareness about the importance of accessing reliable and full information and to have the opportunity to discuss directly with them involving other young multipliers.

  • Carrying out national/local-level training multiplier events as part of their training programme. Young people will learn by doing; they will be assigned a task during their training and will carry it out themselves after the training is over.
