Active Remembrance Youth Programme

The Active Remembrance Youth Programme (ARYP) is funded by the European Commission and contains nine different youth exchange events across Europe. The project runs from 2024 till 2026 and involves partners from the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, Poland, France, Italy and Czechia.

The project

The Active Remembrance Youth Programme is an EU-funded project that aims to actively involve and inspire young Europeans from diverse backgrounds to explore and commemorate World War II from multiple perspectives. Through a series of youth exchanges, participants will visit significant WWII sites across Europe, engaging with history firsthand. This immersive experience encourages active learning, including conducting interviews, curating historical content, and creating podcasts and videos, all contributing to an online exhibition.
