Seminar "Youth involvement in the food social entrepreneurship"

Youth Workers and Community Workers seminar about youth involvement in the food social entrepreneurship

Gastronomy Society is opening a call for partner organizations which will participate in realization of the seminar for youth workers "Youth involvement in the food social entrepreneurship".
There are too many young NEET's who has very low or no qualification. For expample in Slovakia and Hungary there are Roma young people in the marginalizes Roma communities. On the other side, there are not enough young people working in the field of food industry and food industry together with farming has a great potential - specifically for young people from rural areas or for those with low qualification and with the potential to learn. By building a generation of young people who can cook, who can read a label, who understand the challenges facing farmers, who know the basics of how food grows and how it reaches our plate, we also build a generation of people that are healthier, more connected to our food and land, and better able to support farmers without it costing us the earth.

The main aim of the project is to support the youth workers and community workers with the competences and methods needed to address European challenges in the area of youth employment and in reaching the marginalised groups of young people.

The objectives of the project are to:
1. Share the experiences of youth workers how to improve employability skills of unemployed and NEET young people, especially from marginalised groups;
2. Share the experiences on how to reach out to marginalised young people;
3. Build a network among local organizations from different countries working in the agro-food system to provide short term and long-term experiences for young people (in European voluntary service or Solidarity Corps, etc.);
4. Search for the methods how to increase awareness and knowledge on sustainable and healthy food consumption and about possibilities to use it in the young NEET's employment systems;
5. Search for methods how to encourage young people for the social entrepreneurship, specifically in the field of agriculture and food industry
