Hi. We are Popedu!
We run Erasmus+ youth projects from Austria. Our focus is on . .... non-formal education, ..... diversity and .... digital competency.

our projects

We've also designed training workshops to share our expertise and upskill other youth organisations.

our past projects

We love Europe.
We love Erasmus+.

These projects were made possible by funding of Erasmus+, the European Union programme for education, youth, training and sport. A special thanks to the team of our National Agency, the IZ - Verein zur Förderung von Vielfalt, Dialog und Bildung.

About us

We are Popedu. We love pop, education and pineapple on pizza (almost all of us). We believe in the power of education, diversity and (young) people.

We provide non-formal, intercultural learning experiences to increase digital competences in order to burst filter bubbles, enhance sustainable development and encourage young people to become active and transformational agents of their communities. We empower, motivate and support youngsters in their personal development and give them the opportunities and tools to put their ideas into action while having our focus on digital and online tools for offline impact.
