Our story

The Association of Educational Programmes ‘OpenEurope’ is a non-profit organisation based in Reus (Catalonia, Spain) that aims to help young people and adults working in youth-related fields to participate in European educational programmes. 

Our programmes are aimed at developing communication, leadership and employability skills. Our association’s projects and initiatives are aimed at engaging educators, teachers, students and the wider community in projects that seek lifelong learning (LLL). 

We encourage the participation of all members of the community in our projects and activities, especially in the areas of civic responsibility, migration, technology at the service of people or smart cities, with a special focus on strengthening the capacity of non-governmental organisations and volunteers working to solve social problems.
