Regions – Objectives

The Eurodyssey program lies on interregional cooperation.

  • help and foster the young people’s transition into the labour market
  • provide opportunities for young people to widen their cultural and professional horizon
  • to successfully address youth unemployment and management of human resources
  • make young people ambassadors of their Region.
