AU-EU Youth Cooperation Hub


Become a Pioneer of the AU-EU Cooperation. Contribute to piloting new, youth-led solutions and improve realities.


For the first time young people are not only being heard but also asked to contribute to the guidelines for projects focusing on some of the most important issues concerning both the European Union and the African Union.


The AU-EU Youth Cooperation Hub will enable 42 selected young Africans, Europeans and Diaspora to work with the African Union, the European Union and other relevant stakeholders in developing new approaches, defining the scope of pilot projects and monitoring their implementation in six areas:


  • Business, Job Creation & Entrepreneurship
  • Culture, Sports & Arts
  • Education and Skills
  • Environmental Preservation and Climate Change
  • Governance, Political Inclusion & Democratic Inclusion
  • Peace and Security, including Prevention of Radicalisation and Violent Extremism.


Who can apply?


Any person between the ages 18-35 years old, African, European or Diaspora, interested in Africa-EU cooperation, with knowledge and proven results in one of the six areas.


What does it involve?


If selected, you'll sit on the AU-EU Youth Cooperation Hub from October 2018 until 2020 (the 6th AU-EU Summit). All members will meet for the first hub session in Addis Ababa from 27th October - 4th November 2018, then will attend up to three additional working sessions per year (dates and locations to be confirmed).
