Aims & objectives

The aim of the training was to provide the participants with tools for combating youth unemployment, especially in rural areas.

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

We had 8 partner countries (France, Finland, Hungary, Turkey, Estonia, Italy, Slovenia and Denmark) each one sending 3 participants. The participants were youth workers looking for methods of increasing employability among young people in their countries.

Training methods used & main activities

We used non formal learning methods in researching and understanding the employment situation n the participation countries, we used project development tools to start projects to combat the issues that lead into youth unemployment, and we used intercultural methods to understand the European context.
