Eligible are 25 participants coming from: Czech Republic, France, Germany, Lithuania, Slovak Republic

Application deadline: 17th June 2019

Learning how to take care of money at a young age can be crucial in ensuring good finances later in life. By implementing the two-phase project, we want to contribute to financial literacy in society by educating young people in their personal finances.

General Description

Learning how to take care of money at a young age can be crucial in ensuring good finances later in life. By implementing the two-phase project “Money does not grow on trees” under Erasmus+ program, we want to contribute to financial literacy in society by educating young people in their personal finances.

We think it is our responsibility to prepare the next generation to manage their financial affairs.

The project “Money does not grow on trees” is consisted out of 2 parts. The first part is the Partnership building activity or PBA. It is targeted for teachers, organization representatives and youth workers or anyone that has knowledge of financial literacy and would like to share his/her knowledge.

Together, we will concept the second phase, which is the Training Course (TC) for youth, and show young people how to deal with their own financial affairs.

Objectives:

  • Bringing professionals together to learn from each other and to share the best practices
  • Form new partnership bonds that could continue in the form of Erasmus+ initiatives/projects by using non-formal tools
  • Analysis of specific problems/ issues related to educational programs and approach to financial literacy.
  • Based on this knowledge, preparing sessions for the second project phase (creating methodology and program for the training course.)

Costs

 

This project is financed by the Erasmus+ Youth Programme.

Accommodation and food

The hosting organisation of this offer will organise and covers the costs for accommodation and food.

Travel reimbursement

Travel costs will be reimbursed based on distance band and original receipts/tickets and provided bank account after the event.

  • Czech Republic – 20 euro
  • Slovak Republic – 180 euro
  • Germany, Lithuania – 275 euro
  • France – 820 euro

Participation fee

Each participant is invited to contribute to this course with 20 Euros.

A modest contribution from participants to the overall costs of a project helps to create a sense of investment and ownership as well as participants tend to value what they receive more when they have contributed to it. Those costs will contribute to the implementation of the project activities and raising the quality of the educational part as well as the overall project management.

Training Course: What’s worth working for. The tasks of democracy we believe in.

Dates: 21 August – 1 September 2019

Venue: Bad Bevensen & Berlin, Germany

Eligible are 28 participants coming from: Germany, Lithuania, Poland, United Kingdom

Application deadline: 14th July 2019

What is it worth to work for? Which are the most important challenges to be addressed if we want to make democracy run smoothly? What do young people believe in, which issues matter to them, how and where do they want to assume responsibility?

General Description

Aims and Guiding Topics:

1. History – how we became, who we are: How did we become the people who we are? Which values had those in mind, who shaped our families and societies? We will look at the historic narratives and identities. We compare family biographies and text books, news reports and public debates.

2. Democracy – how we express, what we want: How do we decide, which policy will do? Who feels represented and who feels left behind? A simulation game will help us understand how interest representation in politics works. Talks with political decision makers will address the crucial issue of populism and xenophobia in times of migration.

3. Diversity – how we include, who is around: How do we perceive what keeps societies together? Do we have homogenous and diverse societies in Europe? This part is on facing diversity and handling it. Diversity training, dialogue exercises and field visits to NGOs will help us find answers to those questions.

4. Prospect – how we know, what to do: How do we design, what we will do? Here we will identify the tasks at hand. We will describe what’s worth working for – and shape concrete activities.
