Building capacities for innovation in the eco-social
The partners on this project aim to establish an innovative framework for the intersectoral eco-social development that will allow local associations and young people to actively contribute to smart, sustainable and inclusive development of targeted areas in Croatia, Bosnia, Serbia, Montenegro, Belgium and Cyprus. This will in turn enhance the partner’s capacity to develop and implement meaningful high-quality digital youth work that teaches and promotes eco social entrepreneurship in partners countries.
European Digital Cultural Heritage and Values for Migrant
Empowerment and Inclusion in Adult Education
Europe4all aim is to support the social integration of immigrants, and to equip educators and/or non-formal trainers who support adult learners with tools for raising awareness of the European cultural heritage, and values which are considered universal. The project will enhance the social inclusion of immigrants, mostly young adults, by developing innovative tools which will facilitate the immigrants’ understanding of the European cultural heritage and values. Part of the project's material (videos with description of cultural products) will be created by immigrants themselves in collaboration with locals and under the guidance of educators and/or non-formal trainers. Through this process they will be able to activate their creative, cooperative and problem-solving skills. These skills are life skills and their cultivation will make an important contribution to their efforts to integrate into the local and the European society at large.
Novel Framework for democratic participation and Engagement of Underrepresented European Youngsters – NEUEYT
The NEUEYT project aims at developing a Framework of blended initiatives that will promote the active citizenship and democratic participation of young people, who feel particularly underrepresented in policy making decisions and/or live in remote/rural areas with limited access to learning opportunities. Special attention will be given on the digital approach of the newly developed participation processes to reduce the gap among the invisible youth.
The methodology focuses on the active involvement of youngsters and policy makers to the activities in local communities, thus engaging them from the research to the piloting phases, and from the development of the policy recommendations to the feedback given to the initiatives of the framework. Action research, co-creation, and community development principles will guide this approach.
The partnership involves 6 countries (Italy, Greece, Cyprus, Republic of North Macedonia, France, and Norway) and brings together 7 partners representing public (local and regional) and private bodies (international nets, youth Associations and NGOs) involved in youth empowerment and policy making.

CULTURAL AND ARTS ENTREPRENEURSHIP IN ADULT EDUCATION (CREATION) The intention through the CREATION project is to explore the theoretical roots, pedagogical approaches, and practical training in, and for cultural entrepreneurship. CREATION especially supports women from underrepresented groups, including migrants, refugees and asylum seekers, in building entrepreneurial skills in particular on cultural and arts entrepreneurship. A research-based framework will support women to map out innovative cultural entrepreneurship skills. Interactive training resources will support adult educators and migrant workers in strengthening crucial entrepreneurial skills of these underrepresented female entrepreneurs. Countries involved: Portugal, Cyprus, Italy, Greece, Ireland, and Germany.
The project objective is to increase pupils’ skills and competences in 21st century skills with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) as the framework. The digital materials will focus on developing critical thinking skills, creativity, problem solving skills and digital competencies such as media literacy in the context of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Combining 21st century skills and UN SDG’s provides a perfect opportunity for pupils to develop critical thinking, problem solving, entrepreneurship and digital competences while working with real world issues such as pollution, water contamination, equality, etc.
Countries involved: Denmark, Cyprus, Italy, Latvia, Portugal, The Republic of North Macedonia.
The objective of the Artistic Licence project is to use a unique blend of different performing arts disciplines to develop bespoke training resources that support key competence acquisition among the growing marginalised adult and migrant communities in Europe.
To achieve this partners will consider the in-service training needs of educators to enable them harness the full potential of these alternative methodological approaches.
The general objective of the UNWIND project is to provide young people, both in employment and seeking employment, with accessible opportunities to build the necessary skill-sets to cope with and manage work-related stress and to build sustainable careers in today’s dynamic economy.
