Understandably, many of you have reached out to us about the implications of the current public health situation on the projects running under EU youth programmes.

Please find official communication in this regard from the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA) and from the European Commission here:

In practical terms, we suggest you to keep all documentation regarding the change in the implementation of your projects, containing important information to assess force majeure later on (e.g. for travels: time when the tickets were purchased, nature of the tickets – refundable or not -, planned time and place of departure/arrival, formal instructions/recommendations from official authorities at the time, particular circumstances of the participants, etc.).
