UP2NEB aims to engage, connect and empower youth workers from EU peripheral areas, equipping them with co-designed, practical learning resources and updated skills. They will then be able to train and empower young people (18-29) from those territories, to engage with the New European Bauhaus initiative, creating living space prototypes that benefit rural and peripheral communities’ development. The initiative aims thus to foster positive change in peripheral areas enhancing youth agency.
