The aim of the activity is to encourage, support and develop inclusive projects in the frame of the European Solidarity Corps (ESC) programme. The activity also aims at exchange of good practices between newcomers and experienced organisations. The activity will open space for getting to know each other’s work and interests, explore potential ideas for common inclusive projects and build good quality partnerships.

The activity will bring together different stakeholders, from newcomers in the programme, to the ones, who are already active in mobility projects, but would like to work more on inclusive projects. In 3 working days we will offer the space to learn more about inclusion, to address the success factors of good inclusive projects and network and exchange practices. We expect concrete ideas for projects in ESC will come out of project planning activities during the training. We expect 30 participants on the event.

  • Draft project proposal ideas for ESC 2020 calls
  • Assure the coaching available for the organizations for the period prior the February deadline (each NA responsible for their participants)

Elements of the programme:

  • Presentation of ESC
  • Capacity building on inclusion
  • Partnership building activities
  • Space for project creations and creating the drafts (aim, goals, partners, next steps)

Sometimes we think on where to get new ideas and inspiration to continue our work with young people. We invite you to attend this training to meet other colleagues from around Europe and find out about their experiences, share your practice, get new ideas, inspiration for your work with young people in NEET situation.”  Natasha Gudakovska and Paul Kloosterman (Trainers of the training course in 2018)
