At a critical time when European solidarity is questioned, the Erasmus+ “Youth Empowerment and Innovation Project (YEIP)” launched its findings at this international conference.

Led by young people and coordinated by Professor Theo Gavrielides, YEIP was delivered in partnership with 18 partners from seven EU countries (Greece, Cyprus, Italy, Portugal, Sweden, Romania and the UK). YEIP constructed and tested an innovative policy intervention model that is founded on the principles of youth-led research, positive psychology and the Good Lives Model.

The conference brought together all our partners including the public authorities that took part in YEIP, as well as young people, decision makers and scholars from across Europe. Through keynotes and workshops, we debated solutions, identified best practices and created much needed space for discussion and networking opportunities. This conference focused on young people, aiming to push barriers for European and national policy making and practice through the presentation of evidence-based solutions, giving a platform to voices that are rarely heard to lead on the debates that affect them. The conference also launched the e-book which published the results and evidence from the project including the views of over 3000 young people and professionals on the issue of youth violent radicalisation and what works for policy and practice.
