TOOL FAIR 2nd Edition

Antalya (TURKEY) 12-16 December 2007

Following the frank success of this large event (France, December 2006) the Salto-Youth EuroMed Resource Center in cooperation with the Turkish National Agency for the Youth in Action programme organised the second edition of the "Tool Fair".

Three partners joined us to prepare such an event:

  • SALTO South East Europe RC
  • SALTO Eastern Europe and Caucasus RC
  • the Akdeniz University

Once again 96 participants and around 20 local observers met in one place, for 5 days. There were 29 Workshops running during 3 days (21 different tools presented in workshops, 3 workshops on technical tools, 5 workshops on Tools for cooperation). Around 40 tools presented in the exhibition. There were 3 lectures from experts. Around 50 project ideas discussed in the partnership building activity. There were 110 pax and 20 visitors (Erasmus students from the University).

It was one of the unique events in Youth in Action Programme as it gathers Non - Formal Education and Formal Education together. The Life Long Learning Programme was presented in a workshop for the participants to improve their skills and use the funding possibilities for their activities in the youth work field.

The Fair was a "showroom" for the huge variety and richness of tools developed and used under the Youth/Youth in Action programme, a place to experiment with methods and exercises used within the different actions (youth exchanges, EVS, youth initiatives, training) and based on different themes (cultural diversity, inclusion, cooperation with partner countries, etc...).
The Fair became the creation of the participants themselves and enable their tools to be used throughout the programme. "Savoir-faire" was gathered in order to create a "collective knowledge".

It is worth finding out more, read on the report!
