Youth are the future, but, as we all stated in the Global Youth Forum in Malaysia, we are also the present, and the action starts now. With this in mind, the Youth Network created the Replication Project with the goal of having young people come together to start new cooperative projects.
The Replication Project is an initiative of the Youth Network, lead and managed by the Executive Committee, in order to understand existing cooperative youth projects, and to support replication of existing models and create new ones.
The program will be launched this year and aims to have a global reach. We will choose at least 8 projects (two per region) and fund them with a maximum of EUR 10,000 per project. We will also recruit mentors from the ICA network to help support the building of strong foundations and structures.
The call for proposals will be launched in April and end in July. The chosen projects will be announced in August. In September the first half of the funds will be allocated and the projects will begin their work. The first evaluation will happen in December and the presentation of progress will be shared during the Cooperative Congress in Seoul. The projects should finish their work by July 2021.
