inSPIre week for inclusion

Get fresh inclusion ideas at the 'inSPIre week for inclusion' from 28 June to 2 July 2021. A perfect occasion to get to get ready to organise inclusive projects as soon as corona restrictions are eased!

WHY TAKE PART?

Are you working with young people with fewer opportunities? You are not the only one! Come and discover how other organisations reach out and work with NEET, rural youth and young people with diverse abilities/health conditions. Participation is free of charge ;-)

In a series of short inSPIrational workshops, you can learn about innovative inclusion & diversity approaches, discover new methods to work with young people with fewer opportunities and get a flavour of the international projects that are possible.
