Twenty Five Cultural Experiences by the Age of Twenty Five

The ‘25 by 25’ project aims to support and encourage young people aged 15 to 21 years old to increase their interaction with cultural activities and experiences. 

The project is funded by the Erasmus+ programme under the Key Action 2 Youth call. 25 by 25 started on 30th September 2020 and will run for 30 months until March 2023.

Project Objectives:

The project will develop a matrix of European cultural activities for youths to help them achieve the goal of learning and developing their skills and knowledge through 25 meaningful cultural experiences by the age of 25 years old. It will also develop a place-based cultural curriculum framework which will allow anyone to create a cultural learning module about their town or city.

The transnational dimension of the 25 by 25 project will be strengthened through the peer-learning and peer exchange element of the 25 by 25 Digital Platform. This will allow the beneficiaries to understand the different cultural manifestations of the wider European Union, through knowledge of the diverse range of shared European cultural heritage.

The project's target beneficiaries are young people between age 15-21, especially vulnerable, NEET (not in employment, education and training) and migrant youths.  Wider stakeholders are youth organisations and youth workers.
