#GEYC10 Changemakers digital initiative

Our Romanian partner, GEYC, celebrated 10 years of activity in March 2020 and they organized the contest “#GEYC10 Changemakers”, which rewarded 10 young people from the GEYC Community who have gotten involved in a variety of projects over time and they stood out. The applications of the pre-selected participants were evaluated by an independent jury consisting of 5 persons and submitted to the public vote between 01.03.2020 – 12.03.2020. It was organized within the KA2 Youth Workers 2.0 project, as the GEYC Community is the first digital youth community in Romania, and the purpose of this project is to promote the use of digital tools in working with young people.
The GEYC team is also working on an Impact Report which will analyse several aspects related to the Community:
  • Background of the Community members (name, age, birth place, current location, how long they’ve been members of the Community)

  • The activities they took part in after they joined GEYC Community

  • The impact those activities had on a personal and professional level

  • Sharing is caring: how did they give back to their local community what they have learned? How do they see the change in society?

  • What drives them to take part in european mobilities and extracurricular activities

  • How do they define GEYC Community in 10 words
