TOOL FAIR XII - Waves of Innovation

Seminar / Conference

6-10 November 2017 | Varna (Golden Sands Resort), Bulgaria

Tool Fair XII – Waves of Innovation shall provide a stimulating environment for innovative pedagogical approaches & practices to respond to the challenges of an everlasting changing context with a focus on the European Commission Youth Priorities for 2018

The 12th edition of the International Tool Fair will take place from the 6th (arrival) to the 10th (departure) of November in Varna, Bulgaria, awarded European Youth Capital 2017.

The focus of this year’s edition aims to enhance participants’ critical thinking in order to be able to respond to the challenges of the evolving context, in line with the European Commission Youth Priorities for 2018 through innovative and digital youth work approaches.

Participating in the Tool Fair XII is an opportunity for participants to shape educational and experiential pathways, to run a workshop and to share tools for learning with colleagues in an international context, as well as to participate in workshops conducted by their peers. Beyond merely experiencing a wide variety of tools for learning, the Tool Fair aims to provide a space to reflect on tools, give and receive feedback, pave the way for their transferability and further development.

This way, the Tool Fair XII aims to enhance capacity building skills of the participants and to contribute not only to the learning outcomes of each individual participant but also on the quality of tools for learning and learning process at European level, complementing the two educational tools websites managed by the SALTO-YOUTH EuroMed & Good Practices Resource Centre: the Multilingual Educational Tools Portal http://educationaltoolsportal.eu/ and the SALTO-YOUTH Toolbox for Training and Youth Work (http://www.salto-youth.net/tools/toolbox), in coherence with the European Training Strategy.
