Learning Pathways to Social Cohesion - Synergies between Formal and Non Formal Education


17-19 May 2016 | Vienna, Austria

The 2nd EUSDR Youth Platform aims at bringing together educators from the non-formal and formal education field, who have already cooperated in common projects, in order to exchange, reflect and value the cross-sectoral cooperation in the Danube Region.
After the kick-off event – “Learning Pathways to Social Cohesion – 1st EUSDR Youth Platform” held in December 2014 in Vienna, the thematic follow up will bring together around 70 educators and experts from the Danube Region countries. This time, the conference addresses a more narrow target group to contribute to a more specific content: Educators from the formal and non-formal education field who already have done (or are concretely planning to do) a common, cross-sectoral project are invited to promote the added value of such cross-sectoral cooperation. The exchange of participants experiences on challenges and achievements as well as inputs in various workshops (on digital activism, radicalisation/extremism and young people in the region, supporting social entrepreneurship capacities of young people, from practice to advocacy) shall contribute to a fruitful event and lead to new motivation and ideas. An input on policy level on the Danube Region Strategy (PA 9 Investing in People and Skills http://www.peopleandskills-danuberegion.eu/) will complete the programme. Based upon the outcomes of the 1st platform meeting, the following aims and intentions can be defined: Aims of the Youth Platform: • Promote the added value of cooperation between actors of the formal and non-formal education in addressing the challenges young people face, thus contributing to social cohesion in the Danube Region • Explore needs and further steps for cooperation between educational sectors Intentions: • Creating a space for dialogue and reflection to share experiences and perspectives on learning pathways of young people and their relevance for social cohesion • Exchanging about the general conditions and specific challenges faced when working in a cross-sectoral project • Get new ideas, inputs and motivation for further work • Exploring possible funding opportunities within ERASMUS+ and other funding schemes relevant for the Danube region. Target Group: • Educators from formal and/or non-formal education field who already did a common, cross-sectoral project • Educators from formal and/or non-formal education field who are planning to set up a cross-sectoral project
