05 Jun End of Increaction+’s transnational seminar
End of the transnational seminar developed during the project Increaction+ in Vitoria (Spain) that joined together 26 participants from 6 different countries in order to exchange good practices and cooperate together on the inclusion and entrepreneurship of youth through non formal education methodologies.
“Increaction+: Intercultural and Creative Actions for Inclusion” is a transnational project developed thanks to the support of the Erasmus+ programme within its Key Action 1 to promote projects for the mobility of young people and youth workers. As main activity of this initiative, representatives from all the partner countries travelled to Vitoria (Spain) to attend the transnational seminar of the project coordinated by the Spanish organisation Bitartean Jolasean – Entretanto Entretente and with the support of members of the other five partner organisations from Czech Republic (Dům narodnostnich menšin o.p.s.), Greece (M.K.O. CIVIS PLUS), Italy (Soc.Coop.Sociale EOS), Latvia (Shelter “Safe House”) and Sweden (Integration For Alla – IFALL).
On the one hand, this international activity made possible that participants from the field of youth inclusion (including youth workers, NGOs representatives and youth users) could cooperate together during some days and exchange good practices about initiatives related to interculturality, social inclusion and integration of youth at local level involving at the same time immigrants and local population. On the other hand, it allowed that representatives of all the partner organizations get to know each other and discuss potential initiatives together in order to continue with the work done during this project in the future. Using this framework for peer learning, the seminar also included different workshops to promote new non formal methodologies for intercultural education and non formal learning for youth such as theater, storytelling, energizers, etc. Beside all these activities to exchange best practices and learn about the partner organizations involved on “Increaction+”, the programme was completed by several group dynamics focused, not only on getting to know the environment of the project and the city of Vitoria, but also the cultural and folk reality of the partner countries.
