Ακολουθούν όλες οι πληροφορίες στα Αγγλικά:

As the pressure in higher education, employment, governance and financial security is rising, it is important for our citizens to be able to take the situation in their own hands and manage it in a way that is sustainable and openly reaches out to both the individual and the society.

The main aim of the project is to initiate networking for social initiatives that address local and global problems, thus enabling young people to communicate and work together towards personal and social development. We also aim to give the participants practice for managing their talents, ideas and ambitions in order to be able to start and carry out their own initiatives.

During the project we will cover topics such as opportunities for youth initiatives, social entrepreneurship, idea management and cooperation, self-branding and online marketing, cooperation vs. competition, and some mind exercises improving self-awareness and observation, teamwork and compassion, mindfulness and productivity, and create material and tools to raise the voice of youth.

Participants

There will be 4 participants from each country. In the application we have stated that 2 would be with lesser social/economical/educational opportunities and 2 with some experience relevant to the topics. Also have we stated that gender balance would be ensured during the selection. The general profile can be stated like this:

– not employed or in education (NEET);

– has ideas and motivation for improving society, but is facing economical, educational and/or social obstacles;

– facing difficulties to clarify, develop and manage ideas and personal initiatives;

– has interest in social well being, social entrepreneurship, personal development, international cooperation, local and global problem solving, art & culture, etc.;

– involved in youth work, youth centers, NGOs or similar.

Location:

During this time we will have the opportunity to explore some examples of social initiatives and also some free time to explore the city.
