Show Synopsis    
Title Africa Europe Youth Cooperation – Online Resource Centre 
Description The general aim of the AEYC online resource centre is to map relevant actors (institutional stakeholders, youth organisations, networks) in the Africa Europe Youth Cooperation (AEYC) and foster capacity-building and cooperation between Africa and Europe organisations working towards the goals of the Africa-EU Strategy.

AEYC online resource centre will be developed and structured based on the following key principles: interactive, youth-friendly, inclusive (available in French and English - and features available for non registered members), cultural sensitiveness, continuous update and monitoring, transparency, knowledge sharing, capacity-building and community of practices.

The AEYC online resource centre will be a tool to:
- give visibility to Africa Europe Youth Cooperation and its main stakeholders;
- centralize useful information such as stakeholders agendas/programmes and calls for partners and participants in order to facilitate involvement in AEYC;
- develop capacity-building of actors involved in AEYC;
- foster cooperation, through partner finding, project counselling and dissemination of partnership and funding opportunities;
- develop knowledge in the AEYC field, by gathering and promoting academic research, political documents, information on the institutional framework and pedagogical resources.

By the end of 2012, the following features should be operational and available online:
- AEYC News: the feature with all AEYC online resource centre updates and news from registered members;
- Calendar: with agendas, meetings and other activities shared by registered members and confirmed by moderator;
- Contacts Database: registration and validation of partners and organisations involved in AEYC in the resource centre;
- Partner Finding Tool: registration of organisations will be made in a structured way and their profile will be available online;
- Library: composed by different sections with background documents on AEYC, political framework, academic research, pedagogical resources, links to regular publications in the relevant fields and with a search system based on different entries (such as the thematic priorities of Africa-EU Strategic Partnership);
- Updated Opportunities: organised by different opportunities such as calls for partners and participants, training opportunities; employment offers and funding opportunities;
- Good Practices: sharing inspirational examples of projects, good practices, initiatives developed in the AEYC framework;
- The AEYC media centre: with a video channel, a photo gallery and other audiovisual resources;
