E+ Ideathon. Bansko Edition.

Partnership-building Activity

12-17 September 2022 | Bansko, Bulgaria

The 6-day program will help Youth NGO leaders & Project managers submit their KA2 Small-scale project idea during a live ideathon in Bulgaria, even if they don’t have prior experience, knowledge of Erasmus+ or partners from before.

E+ IDEATHON. BANSKO EDITION program is going to be extremely practical: 20% of theory, 80% of practice & mentoring. We believe in action & feedback upon action. Still, every action is backed up
with theoretical input & best practices.
For sure, we’ll also take care of fun & evening activities, still, our focus is on RESULT:
every participant will have their project submitted by the end of this program.

E+ IDEATHON. BANSKO EDITION will help to develop ideas in the areas:
✦ Community-building & Enhancing cooperation
✦ Digital transformation: digital youth work,
digital readiness, content & skills
✦ Youth entrepreneurship & Employability
✦ Youth work: quality & recognition, developing
new approaches
✦ Other (you can add yours, and we might find
a match with other applicants)

On purpose organisers narrowing down topics to create environment where partners have common interests and profiles to complement each other.

What to expect from the programme:

1. Step-by-step guidance: we’ll lead you through the process of applying for a KA2 Small-scale project from the very beginning till the end.

2. 100% guarantee of project submission: there is no way you’ll postpone it for the next deadline. Till the end of the program on September 17 everyone will hit ‘submit’ button.

3. We know that finding good partners can be tricky. Thus, you only need the idea, and we’ll connect you with potential partners who have similar interests. For this we’re going to choose participants with similar interests & background that can bring extra value to your project idea.

4. You’ll get constant feedback and support from experienced mentors:
we’ll give you everyday feedback in the course of your project-writing
