Training Course“CAN&DO – Capability of Creativity and Culture for Change-Doing” (KA1 – Mobility of youth workers).
from 4th (arrival day) to the 12th of July 2015 (departure day).
The ENP-East countries showed strong differences in the unemployment rate by age, which was also the case in the EU. The unemployment rate of people aged15–24 years was at least twice as high as for persons aged 25–74 years in all ENP-East countries (ENP–East countries, Youth statistics, Eurostat, 2014). In the EU-28, at 23.4 %, more than one out of every five young persons in the labour force was not employed (Unemployment statistics, Eurostat, 2014).
As nowadays knowledge is the most strategic source and learning is the most strategic process, the CAN & DO will be carried out with the aim to provide youth worker with the ready-to-use methods on how to assist youngsters with the competences needed to become integrated into and empowered to the knowledge-based society. As young people are a priority for EU’s social vision, and the current crisis compounds the need to sustain the young human capital (Eurostat), the TC’s vision of development of young human & social capital lies in unfolding creativity, entrepreneurial & innovative culture and “can-do” attitude.
-to examine the nature and boost the understanding of knowledge-based society & knowledge-based economy, human & social capital, sustainable/inclusive/smart growth;
-to stimulate creativity, entrepreneurial & innovative culture and “can-do” attitude by means of the Reciprocal Maieutic Approach, creative thinking and idea-generating tools;
-to cultivate and valorise the practice of the Reciprocal Maieutic Approach as a technique for young people empowerment and social transformation;
-to provide youth workers, peer educators and social activists with ready-to-use methods, outstanding knowledge, skills and competences on how to trigger development of the social and human capital through the RMA, hence to enable them to act as an multi-players dealing with young people (ex. NEETs, future entrepreneurs etc.);
-to improve the quality and increase the volume of cooperation between participating organisations throughout and in between the EU and Eastern Partnership countries;
-to disseminate information on the EU current programmes/policies/initiatives, mainly EU 2020 Strategy and a conducive role of its flagship initiatives for empowerment of young people as well as European Year of Development 2015.
