With the MEET UP! Youth for Partnership funding program, the Foundation Remembrance, Responsibility and Future (EVZ) and the Federal Foreign Office jointly support international youth projects in Germany, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Republic of Moldova and Ukraine.
The main focus of the international youth encounters is working together on one of the following topics:
Crisis – Conflict – Cooperation: As part of the youth encounters, young people can actively examine current wars, crises and conflicts. Young people deal with local and transnational democracy and human rights movements, discuss the role of fundamental rights such as freedom of speech and press freedom in times of crises and conflicts, and use best practice examples and their own experiences to collectively develop concepts for shaping their future in a democratic world.
Culture of remembrance: The youth encounters are committed to promoting an active critical examination of the historical experience of National Socialism. The encounters integrate historical narratives of the partner countries and offer possibilities to map out approaches to historical experiences. The encounters establish links between the history of National Socialism and contemporary realms of experience and discuss the misuse of historical narratives to justify war. In this way, the encounters help young people to actively address the threats to democratic and open societies. Young people are empowered to counter historical revisionism, antisemitism and other types of discrimination.
