JOYNEET (Job Opportunities for Youth with the Network  of European Towns) is a project created by 8 European Towns + 1 Research Centre + 2 Civic Society Organisation representing 2 Municipalities +2 non-profit Organisations, 1 Twinning Committee and 1 training centre.

Each partner has its own background, experience and challenges to face but all of them want to work together for the engagement of young underrepresented citizens from small communities in the European decision-making processes both on local and European level.  This will be possible thanks to the implementation of 7 meetings focused on Union policies aimed at helping young NEET citizens to improve their CV for a better job placement or to start-up their own business, and develop intercultural understanding.

4 meetings will be specifically dedicated to 4 main sectors (Agriculture, Industry ICT and Innovation, Handicraft, Culture and Tourism) in order to give the youth a real opportunity to meet potential partners coming from the Network countries and plan together their mobility to learn, train, work, study or volunteer aboard, or even start their new business activity.

At least 20 mobilities will be also supported by 2 EU funds experts who will help the young participants to ‘practice Union Policies and initiatives’ and afterwards facilitate the production of Recommendations based on the participants’ experience that will be introduced to the Union bodies (CoR, EESC), and MEPs.  The impact of this project can be measured on individual level – as an increased interest in Union policies, as well as on the institutional one – capacity measured on the individual level – as an increased interest in Union policies, as well as on the institutional one – capacity building.

The 2 year project activities  will be disseminated through the production of 4 main communications tools, a web portal, social media, leaflets and a UBS with movies presenting the mobilities implemented and results that have been achieved.
