Seminar: International seminar on cross-sectorial cooperation in the field of inclusion “Key to inclusion”

Dates: 19-22 April 2017

Venue: Slovenia

Eligible are 36 participants coming from: Erasmus+ Youth in Action Programme countries

Application deadline: 1st March 2017

The seminar will gather representatives of different sectors, who have been working cross-sectorally on the topic of inclusion of young people to share their practices, learn from each other and exchange experience and models of cooperation.

General Description

In the past years, National agencies implementing the Erasmus+ programme in Slovenia have identified some successful projects on the topic of social inclusion and one important aspect that they have in common is that they are all very well connected in their local environments with different stakeholders, such as specialised institutions dealing with disadvantaged groups of youngsters, be it public or private.

Such projects seem to be addressing the challenges of social inclusion very successfully and are including young people with fewer opportunities in their projects in an efficient and meaningful way.

We would therefore be interested in exploring this aspect further and find other examples of successful international cross-sectorial projects from all fields of Erasmus+ – education, training and youth and beyond as well as successful local or national cross-sectorial projects on the topic, which could serve as a good example and could potentially be also upgraded into international cooperation.

Aims and contents of the seminar

The seminar will gather representatives of non-formal and formal education sector (youth organisations, schools, VET and HE) as well as representatives of other sectors, such as employment, social care, health, and/or municipalities, who have been working cross-sectorally on the topic of inclusion of young people to share their practices, learn from each other and exchange experience and models of cooperation.

The aim of this international seminar is therefore to support international cross-sectorial cooperation for inclusion of young people and to highlight the need for a cross-sectorial approach to building a more inclusive and cohesive society, by offering space for them to exchange their experience and share their results, build links among them and reflect on the topic of social inclusion.

The seminar also aims to collect good practice examples of cross-sectorial projects to inspire the interested public beyond the participants of this seminar and offer Erasmus+ as one of the tools for supporting such cooperation, in particular through Key action 2 (Strategic partnerships).

The seminar will therefore try to:

– identify and present cross sectorial examples of good practice at international and local levels contributing to inclusion of young people at local level;
– explore success factors for inclusion projects at local and international levels with a particular focus on cooperation between partners / sectors;

– create space for exchange on social inclusion issues & topics relevant to participants;
– reflect on Erasmus+ programme as a tool for inclusion of young people and encourage participants to use opportunities of KA2 – strategic partnerships for further development of their practices on international level;
– collect good practice examples to inspire the interested public beyond the participants of this seminar.

Representatives of Education & Training (SE, VET, HE) should contact their respective National agency in their country regarding their support for participation!

Seminar: Guerrilla Youthwork

Dates: 14-22 May 2017

Venue: Braunlage, Germany

Eligible are 100 participants coming from: Croatia, Germany, Greece, Latvia, FYROM, Norway, Romania, Spain, Turkey

Application deadline: 2nd March 2017

This training/networking seminar is for representative from small and medium NGOs that are working on mobility of youth projects. We will share know-how and best case practices, find solutions for our organizational challenges, design new projects etc.

General Description

Most of the mobilities from the youth part of Erasmus+ project are realized by small and medium NGOs.

At the same time they have the least of resources to do their work and most of the challenges such as: lack of financial sustainability, not having sustainable office solution, big turnover of volunteers that come and go all the time, lack of management capabilities from the founders of the organization, lack of leadership skills, lack of PR and media skills, lack of IT skills so the visibility would be higher, lack of quality network that the organizations are facing, many administration and accounting challenges, lack of knowledge of all programs where they can apply and receive funds for their activities , lack of strategic networking, not having relevance in the society they operate, lack on enough meaningful projects that address burning issues in society are the ones if we name just few challenges that came out of the assessment of the organizations.

Having in mind that our projects intention is to find solutions for some of these challenges using the resources that we have at the moment, we want to place youth workers from small organizations that are facing similar challenges and to ask them to work together to find solutions that will provide sustainability and effectiveness in the work of the organizations.

To put those solutions on paper and share them with other organizations that werent present on our project (salto youth, other platforms). Applicable, easy to follow and with long reach sharing our know-how and best case practices.

Also we want to design projects and make partnerships with reliable organizations for the following years (2017-2019) having in mind that many of the topics that we are targeting are going to remain relevant in the following years (Refugees, EU challenges, minority background citizens and their integration).
