Description

The Italian National Agency for Erasmus+ Youth, in cooperation with French and German NAs, Salto South East Europe, and the partnership between the European Commission and the Council of Europe in the field of youth has started a wide project “Edu4 Europe: Forum of education for European democratic citizenship”.

While citizens turn their back on Europe, there is an emergency to reaffirm European values such as peace, human rights, democracy, solidarity, etc. and to spread them among the youth population. Youth work plays a very important role, and especially through its non-formal education approaches.

The project’s main activity in 2019 is a forum of a duration of 2 days, in November, involving over 150 practitioners active in the field of citizenship education.

Objectives of the project:

  • Strengthen youth work through sharing practices from several fields on EEDC
  • Connect to policy +and policy makers on EEDC, by bringing current issues, practices, needs and debates to their attention.

Results expected:

  • Motivation, information, tools and contacts to bring back home in order to change/improve participants’ daily work, to inspire, to think differently and do better;
  • Answers to complex questions;
  • New initiatives: trainings of trainers, toolbox, curriculum for teachers or youth workers;
  • Keep track of results and developments after the activity;
