Project Summary:
This will be a multilateral exchange project that will promote discussion among the young participants and will have as main themes unemployment, mobility, entrepreneurship and non-formal education, as derived from the priorities of Greece European Presidency of 2014 . The aim is to:
. Promote discussion and debate on European citizenship and what it represents.
. Develop creative and entrepreneurial spirit of young people.
. Promote cooperation among the youth for development.
. Develop skills and tools to enter the labor market.
. To publicize the reality of youth unemployment in Europe and how to fight it.
. Promote the importance of mobility as a personal dynamic.
Currently young Europeans go through great difficulties in entering the labor market, and there are about 5 million young people unemployed in Europe, one in four does not work, reaching more serious dimensions in Spain, Greece, Portugal and Cyprus. 7 and a half million between 15 and 24 do not currently have jobs or are not following any kind of education or training.
It is crucial that these same young people can't gain access to the labor market, because the long-term unemployment is not facilitating the creation of successful careers. This project has laid its foundations in these purposes, acknowledging the importance of non-formal education, creativity and entrepreneurship as effective tools in youth employability and active citizenship.
Through discussions, debates and group activities intended to create and develop youth skills and abilities. The choice of Agros village, as a place to develop the project, is not a coincidence, since it's a small place quite far from the biggest cities of Cyprus so its difficult for people finding a job, which is also reflected in the region's youth. It is intended that the activities during those days have an impact on how these young people face unemployment in the region and develop, at a later stage, entrepreneurial ideas aimed at changing that aspect.
