PONT will participate in the event organized by Europe Goes Local, a European strategic partnership to facilitate collaboration between young people and municipalities, local public institutions. The presentations and discussions will take place between the 17th and 18th of May, at the Regional Center of Excellence for Creative Industries, in Cluj. The focus will be on youth work, the Europe Goes Local platforms as a cooperation opportunity and ecosystems that help young people realize their ideas with a positive impact on their environment. ⠀

PONT will present two projects as local examples of good practices.

  • Com’ON Cluj-Napoca, a participatory process designed by us, gives informal groups of young people the chance to initiate their own projects. The community is also involved since only the most voted ideas will be implemented.
  • FIX Cluj is a fund and a program focused on building ecosystems that help young people in the city create innovative entrepreneurship initiatives. PONT provides the management of this project.⠀

Europe Goes Local is a strategic partnership between 25 National Agencies and other relevant stakeholders, including 120 municipalities from different countries. The National Agencies manage the Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Fund programmes. More information about Europe Goes Local can be found at https://europegoeslocal.eu
