EGL-Social inclusion in European Cities true Youth Work. Participants will be asked to attend in pairs (youth worker + young leader). You should complete one form each. You will both need to give answers to the questions, so will probably need to check some of the answers together.
Participants are coming from municipalities across Europe to share practice on youth work approaches related to social inclusion. There will be structured visits to different examples in Paris, and a chance to reflect and share in an international group. The aim is to support participants to improve social inclusion in their own European cities through youth work.
The Study visit is set up to allow interaction, learning, sharing, questions, and space for reflection.
For the parallel programmes:
1) The youth worker programme aims to deepen understanding about youth work approach. Youth workers from different European cities will be inspired by the Parisian inputs to share the way they work with social inclusion in their municipality. They will visit different provision and localities in the city, and have a chance to debate the main themes of the Study Visit between them (Culture/arts, Poverty, Mental Health and Well-Being etc).
2) Young leaders will have a facilitated programme that will encourage their connection together as a group, to share and learn from each other, to visit different areas of Paris and understand the youth culture there, and to use the activities of the week as a springboard for their input into the Social Inclusion Plan to take back to their own municipality. The main themes for this group include: Gender discrimination, participation, citizenship, gang/territorial culture, poverty.
The aim is for the learning from the two parallel processes together to be channelled into a Social Inclusion Action Plan back in their own municipalities on return home.
We have had interest from youth workers and young leaders coming from Belgium-Flanders, Belgium-Wallonia, Italy, Greece, Portugal, Hungary, Spain, Slovakia, Slovenia, and you…
There will be between 21 – 26 participants in total.
What is Europe Goes Local?
This is an international project funded through the Erasmus+ Programme. The core aim of the project is to raise the quality of local youth work in particular through enhanced cooperation between various stakeholders that are active at the municipal level. The Partnership currently involves about 200 members who represent around 120 municipalities from 22 participating countries.
The Partnership also intends to have a multiplying effect by connecting to various activities of the partners and spreading project results to a wide range of stakeholders. This Strategic Partnership is a platform for multi-level initiatives. Large-scale events, mapping exercises and network-wide actions are coordinated at the European level while National Agencies develop national plans to respond to the needs of their partners and create different types of learning opportunities with a transnational dimension.
This Study Visit, as part of Europe Goes Local, will be a transnational peer-learning activities responding to stakeholder needs in the participating countries and will contribute to the development of a knowledge-base in relation to municipal level youth work on the topic of Social Inclusion.
