“Towards Collaborative Practice” Forum: A cross-sectoral event exploring the potential of youth work and Erasmus+ to foster social entrepreneurship and social innovation among young people.

General Description

Why social innovation for social inclusion?

This edition of the TCP Forum will be an opportunity to discuss future pathways for social innovation and how it can foster social inclusion, delving, at the same time, into topics such as digital technology and entrepreneurship for inclusion and participation, female entrepreneurship, migrants’ integration and multiculturalism.

Building on the success of the 5 previous Towards Collaborative Practice (TCP) Forums that took place in Sweden, Italy, UK, Hungary and Spain, the National Agency of Cyprus is pleased to host the 6th edition of the TCP Forum.

The National Agency of Cyprus shares the belief promoted by the European Union that social innovation can act as a “source of remedies for increased social challenges (rising inequalities, poverty, social exclusion, social conflicts and social injustice)” (Social Innovation Task Force of the EU ISG, 2015). In this context, the upcoming Forum will look into the inter-correlation between social innovation and social inclusion.

Since the concepts of social innovation, and thus social entrepreneurship, are rather “new”, and not extensively explored concepts in Cyprus, the Forum envisions to bring together a wide range of professionals, representing various fields of the market and the society, where they will exchange their experiences, practices and visions. Moreover, the Forum will serve as a platform for the development of a network of professionals working on social innovation and will act as a reference point for further developments in the fields and facilitate their collaboration at national, regional and European level.

The Forum will be a melting pot of ideas, tools and good practices which participants, representing different sectors, will have the opportunity to further explore through relevant presentations, workshops and field visits. The Forum will also support the mainstreaming of future cooperation among participants for the implementation of innovative projects and initiatives under Erasmus+.

Moreover, in the framework of the 6th edition of the TCP Forum, the National Agency of Cyprus has already hosted a national activity targeting local stakeholders. The aim of this activity was to build common foundations on social innovation initiatives, for the Cypriot actors in the fields, to facilitate their collaboration, and offer them the space for an exchange of ideas, good practice and challenges faced in an area, such as social innovation, currently under progress, in the Cyprus context. This national activity also served as a preparation phase for the transnational TCP Forum, representing a novelty brought by this edition of the forum.

Objectives of the TCP 2020 Forum Cyprus

  • Encourage collaboration and partnership building between youth work and other sectors of the social innovation and entrepreneurship ecosystem.
  • Raise awareness of and promote the social inclusion dimension of social innovation policies and practices.
  • Offer an opportunity for networking and sharing ideas, tools, methods, challenges and good practices.
  • Use social enterprise, social innovation and non-formal learning as a way to encourage and enable young people to sustain their entrepreneurial life skills.
  • Encourage creativity, innovation, participation, solidarity, diversity and social inclusion of young people.
  • Provide information on Erasmus+ and other opportunities to foster social innovation

Previous TCP Forums: More information about the project and previous editions can be found at @TCPCommunity (on Facebook).

To get the feel of the event, please watch the highlight videos of two previous editions:

Liverpool UK (March 2018):

Budapest Hungary (November 2018):

An eco-friendly event: Inspired by the previous editions of the TCP Forum, the organisers endeavor to deliver an environmentally sustainable event, including site selection, menu compilation, coffee breaks and the materials we use. We believe it is important to show that there is always a way for events to be more eco-friendly, this being one of the principles of this project.

We propose to equip young people with the necessary skills to initiate and manage socially conscious projects by designing a BLUEPRINT. These models of initiatives will be entrepreneurial, sustainable and engines of the development of a culture of peace.

General Description

Peace blueprint project was designed by the group of international youth workers and activists — members of YPAN — working in the peacebuilding field. We are living in the times where the proposals coming from the youth or the historically underrepresented communities are not being taken into account.

As a way to understand the needs of society, it’s solutions and to transform the world into a more peaceful one, we designed a project for youth-workers. As young peace activists, we believe that you can be the one that shapes the social situation from the local perspective to bring a global change. We are ready to take action, are you willing to take part?

With an AIM… Comes the Objectives

The objectives are:

  • To teach quality skills and competencies aimed at the promotion of employment and personal development of young participants.
  • To increase the social capital and participation of young people in their communities through personal entrepreneurial projects and social businesses.
  • Promote social entrepreneurship and non-profit activities.
  • Develop participants’ planning skills and advanced project management methodologies.
  • Raise awareness of the efficient use of available resources and promote a sustainable lifestyle by implementing personal projects respectfully with individuals and society.
  • Explore social entrepreneurship as a tool to foster the Peace process in local communities.
  • Promote social enterprise as an improvement in inclusion and a potential increase in equal opportunities for young people.
  • To exchange good practices in social entrepreneurship and project management and to recognize successful European benchmarks in combination with peace-building.
  • Strengthen the sustainability of youth networks that sensitize citizens and policymakers in the EU and neighboring countries on the potential of social enterprises in building peaceful societies through the establishment of a Peacebuilders group trained in the discipline of social entrepreneurship.

Are you Willing to…?

  • Join a group with an open mind, ready to take action, seeking constructive learning, and willing to be changemakers
  • Change your way of behaving/living in an unlearning process of 6 days (this one is VERY important – think about it)
  • Create a community with respect, love and “sharing is caring” mood
  • Show your best skills to others, offer an ear to hear and questions to ask
  • Be in the middle of nature, practising morning mindfulness, yoga or ninjutsu.
  • Find what “outside the box” really means
  • Believe that youth is part of the change…

Then You are pertfect for this Project!

Besides, if You prefer to…

  • stick to your ideas, values or ways of living without questioning even a single rule
  • talk for talking. Not giving the opportunity to others,

  • show your power and super-ego towards the others
  • go all-time party and drinking (and we really mean this)
  • not listen to others thoughts or ideas (looking to the phone all the time)

The participants will be youngsters, aged 17-30 years, and will come from disadvantaged backgrounds. The project was born to address the need of youngsters to acquire more essential information for their development than is offered in the formal education system.

General Description

Today’s leaders must navigate business issues and interactions that cut across geographical boundaries and cultures. They must inspire conversations, ignite collaboration and integrate multiple perspectives to drive growth and innovation.

Inspiration, firsthand information, advice from accomplished individuals, are the ingredients, which constitute the flesh and bone of success, that are so often overlooked by management scholars.

Be on T.I.M.E puts these ingredients front and centre, allowing you to fraternize with social, practitioners, opinion makers and academic insiders through a set of activities based on Non-Formal education.

The course aims to:
– introduce participants, from a practical perspective, to business problems and challenges in order to get acquainted with actual business situations, problem identification, and problem solving approaches
– engage participants to the business ideas generation processes, assessment methods, and stages of developing business ideas
– support participants toward the preparation of actual demos/prototypes of their business ideas.

During the project participants will engage in real-life business problems, generate business ideas, prepare business plans (working in teams) and also prepare demos/prototypes for their business ideas. They will interact with the instructors and mentors as well as with business practitioners (company executives).

They will use modern learning resources (case studies, software and simulations) and they will compete for a business plan award and a best demo/prototype award.

During the YE project the participants will be under the supervision of the instructors and mentors who will offer knowledge, skills and guidance on education and training activities and provide feedback on performance; and with whom the graduate regularly discusses the progress in her/his activities during the course. “Be on T.I.M.E” Youth Exchange will focus on non-formal education.
