Regional pilots

DOIT pilot actions will be running in 10 different European countries. Each pilot runs in two phases, over several actions, and follows the principles of the DOIT Programme. However, each pilot is also individual and unique. They address diverse topics from areas such as Living Together, Education and Future, or Environment and Nature; they have different target groups, for example children from less privileged backgrounds, children in rural areas or children with special needs; and they take place in various settings, be it schools, makerspaces, youth centres or public libraries.

Where do DOIT activities take place and who is involved?

Each pilot partner works with a number of regional organisations that are directly involved in the pilot or in other regional activities, be it as participants, as a venue or as a regional partner. These help us ensure that we can provide wonderful opportunities to a large number of children, young people and other stakeholders, and we are very grateful for their support.

Some of the organisations involved in DOIT activities across Europe are:
