Training methods used & main activities

Third East-West Inclusion project was an experimental concept and mix of evaluation seminar, a study visit and partnership building elements, targeting experienced EVS organisation.

The participants looked into the past, seven years of the YiA programme, specifically at the developments of the inclusive EVS projects, done in the cooperation with the EECA region. They also looked into the future: share ideas about the inclusion, EVS possibilities and stronger cooperation in the new programme Erasmus +.

Outcomes of the activity

Participants shared different understanding and practices of Inclusion and Evs with East-West co-operation, they learned about new opportunities and co-operation frame offered by Erasmus +.
The seminar was also a great opportunity for participants to discover the reality of inclusion Evs projects in Georgia thanks to the study visit element and at the same time the visits were an opportunity to compare the project visisted with participants daily work in their Evs organisations.
At the end of the seminar more than 30 different co-operation ideas were shared especially in the field of Evs. Participants worked on the development of new projects to be submitted under new Erasmus + Youth in Action .
