Erasmus+ youth4tolerance - International cooperation for development of youth participation in the local community

Empowering marginalized young people from remote or rural areas, or ones belonging to a national/ethnic minority, to be actively involved in their communities.

THE MAIN IDEA OF THE PROJECT


Youth4tolerance is a project focused on increasing the participation rate of young people in the political and social life of their own community, by actively engaging young individuals who are not members of any NGO or a political party, and are also being marginalized for specific reasons.

The main idea of this project is to empower geographically and socially marginalized young people through seminars, workshops and info sessions, about ways to get active and become involved in social and political activism.

Our project is targeting minorities and people from remote and rural areas, offering them the opportunity to stay in these areas, while taking part in already existing organizations and creating new ones, in which way they can contribute to community development, acquiring in the process essential entrepreneurial and other soft skills and gaining knowledge that will put them higher on the employability ladder.


This project will include following topics:

• Unheard voices
• Active participation of young people
• Electoral procedures
• NGOs
• Political parties
• Inclusive youth policies
• Non-formal learning
• Intercultural dialogue
• Democracy/Active citizenship
• Public policy/Advocacy
• Initiation of active participation of youth in cultural, social and ethical transformation of society
• Destigmatising the meaning of the word “politics” and everything connected to that term

OBJECTIVES

• To provide info to our participants about field of youth activism and youth policies
• To motivate young people to engage and become active in rural and remote areas
• To empower young people to transfer their personal experience through study visits
• To train and educate participants to transfer gained knowledge and required skills to the target group
• To raise awareness about the importance of political and social activism
