The main aim of the project is to, together with 25 young people and youth leaders from Poland, North Macedonia, Greece and Spain, plan and undertake specific actions for counteracting unemployment among young people coming from these countries.
In order to achieve the goals, it is planned to conduct a series of workshops focused around the theme of stimulating entrepreneurship, integration and engaged local entrepreneurs and external activists shaping youth initiatives in the region. However, the main facilitators of the exchange will be young people themselves. The project is based on participatory approach and encourages peer education.
They would like to focus on youth coming from less developed regions and rural areas.
At the end of the project, they plan to develop the brochure collecting the thoughts and lessons learned during the exchange. The brochure will also contain mini glossary with the useful expressions regarding entrepreneurship and employability, chosen and explained briefly by our participants.
The aim of the project is to gain the knowledge about the key topics linked to the labour market and to promote the sense of initiative and entrepreneurship among young people coming from partner organisations and out of them.
Additionally, through the activities of our project, they aim to promote diversity, intercultural dialogue, common values of freedom, tolerance and respect of human rights.
