Goal of the project
The project aims to promote youths’ empowerment and active citizenship. The action also aims to fight educational poverty and promote social generativity in the communities where youths live.
Who is it for?
The project, implemented simultaneously in Italy and Spain, is directed at adolescents aged between 14 and 17 years studying in high schools based in Trapani and Zaragoza.
The project aims to promote both youths’ empowerment and the resilience of local communities, for this reason it envisages 3 main actions:
Training: a highly formative and interactive course is envisaged to develop technical skills that are fundamental in today’s labour market (digital, project management, project design) and soft skills such as creativity, innovation skills, team working and multicultural competences.
Contest: youths, divided in teams, will compete in a contest dedicated to the development of initiatives to improve the welfare of the communities where they live. The ideas developed by the teams will have to respond in an innovative way to the challenges identified in their community and will be presented to their Spanish peers, who will vote for the two best ones. At the same time they will also act as judges in the Spanish students’ contest.
Implementation: The winners of the contest will be given EUR 1,500 to implement the selected idea, which will be monitored remotely by the Spanish teams. The other participants will choose if support the implementation of the ideas selected in their territory or remotely monitor the implementation of the selected idea in Zaragoza.
