Press releases

The AU and EU are in the process of launching the AU-EU Youth Cooperation Hub. They have launched a Call for Applications in order to select the 42 young people to take part in the Hub. Applications should be sent before 17 September 2018.



A Call for Applications for selecting the 42 young people for the AU-EU Youth Cooperation Hub is open until 17 September 2018.

Applicants should be citizens of an African Union or European Union Member State, aged between 18 and 35 years old and have a proven knowledge and experience in one of 6 priority thematics of the Africa-EU Partnership, namely:

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

The AU-EU Youth CooperationHub is a multi-stakeholder initiative – with youth at its core – seeking to test new approaches to common challenges facing the African Union & European Union.

The 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 those six areas.

The AU-EU Youth Cooperation Hub builds on the unprecedented experience of the AU-EU Youth Plug-In Initiative (YPII) which led the development and presentation of the AU-EU Youth Agenda at the 5th AU-EU Summit in Abidjan in 2017. The YPII itself built on the Abidjan Youth Declaration.
