Make the Move for Green Inclusion !

Partnership-building Activity

26 April - 1 May 2022 | Santarem, Portugal

A new edition of the well known contact making seminar "Make the Move", aiming at bringing together youth field actors to create parnerships and work on the design and implementation of Youth Exchanges, on the topics of environment and inclusion.

Over the past years, many youth exchange projects have been developed and run between organisations from different countries of geographical Europe, born in the previous editions of this PBA. An exciting and challenging intercultural encounter! In order to strengthen the partnerships and especially the quality of these projects, this partnership building activity aims to provide the needed frame, support and training elements for the participants who intend to organise such a youth exchange in the near future. Besides creating the opportunity for participants to create strong partnerships, we also wish to offer a real intercultural experience, as an inspirational example for future youth exchange implementations. This “MAKE THE MOVE for Green Inclusion” will therefore take place for the 6th time in the very centre of Portugal. We will try to create a strong interaction with the local community, which adds a dimension of deep intercultural experience for the participants. The priority topics will be the environment and sustainable development and inclusion, and the possible links between these two.

AIMS & OBJECTIVES · - To create an opportunity to find good and reliable partners to make youth exchanges with, with a focus on inclusion and green projects · - To understand what is needed to plan a youth exchange of good quality · - To create a solid network of contacts and partnerships · - To equip the youth workers with insight in their role as coach and support · - To experience the possibilities of local involvement · - To understand the impact and social change a youth exchange can have within the local community

TARGET GROUP The partner building activity is open for voluntary and professional youth workers, working directly with young people, able to make decision in the name of their structure/group and plan to organise a youth exchange within the frame of the Erasmus+ - Youth. This implies discussions with your target groups before coming to the activity, so that you really represent their group.

Max 35 participants from Geographical Europe (Programme countries + Western Balkans + Eastern Europe and Caucasus and Russian Federation). Priority will be given to participants from organisations or groups working on social inclusion of young people and/or green apporaches. Participants should be at least 18 years old.
