When I applied for support for our work from the City of Leipzig, I came across the following overview: „Why Erasmus+ youth in action is so important?“ One could well supplement it with a graphic with the title: „Why is the promotion of international youth work by the municipalities so important according to SGB 8 §11? For example, this is the only way to make European support really fruitful on the ground. Because the complex European procedures need specialists to implement them. Moreover, it is only through municipal support that networks of institutions, (secondary) schools and open youth work can be established which make international youth work accessible to target groups who do not have this type of opportunities in school. We therefore hope that the growing city of Leipzig will continue to promote international youth work and expand its support.
