Aims & objectives

The main aims and objectives were:
• to support the Youthpass process, especially for young people with fewer opportunities
• to build common understandings of non-formal learning processes; to discuss, reflect and exchange on Learning to Learn methods and different ways of recording learning
• to develop tools to support the learning process of future participants
• to set the bases for future common projects.

Target group & international/intercultural composition of the group & team

The 24 participants came from Austria, Estonia, Finland, France, Hungary, Italy, Spain, Sweden and UK. Mark E.

The main working language was English and most of the other participant languages were also used depending on context.
