It has proven to make an essential contribution to the unity of the European Union, primarily through the Erasmus+ YOUTH IN ACTION program. It unfolds great potentials in promoting democracy, strengthening civil society and youth work (cf. RAY Interim Evaluation).
The Erasmus+ Youth in Action program has inspired innovation in youth work across Europe over the past 30 years. It is at risk, losing its role.

How can the RFCDC interplay with other competence frameworks? How can a competence based approach contribute to build a bridge between the inherent field logics of formal and non-formal education? Where are practical benefits and limitations? An extensive field study and practice test allowed to draw findings for the field of cooperation between different sectors of learning, for using the RFCDC as a tool to support peer-learning, and as a reflection instrument for the design and conduction of non-formal learning processes, of educational practice and to support educators in EDC/HRE reflecting about their role and position in learning and educating, for, through and and about democracy.

What are European values? Do they actually still exist? We cannot take for granted that what is enshrined in the International Treaties is still valid today. The social, economic, political and cultural context has changed considerably. Therefore, we have decided to start from the beginning. And by “beginning”, we mean here and now.
The “here and now” shows us a growing sense of urgency to understand the complexity of contemporary society, to act as responsible citizens in the interest of the Common Good and to direct our efforts particularly at situations of marginality, exploitation and injury to personal dignity.
