Contact Making Seminar
Start date: May 1, 2015,
End date: May 31, 2016
This project was a contact making seminar designed to create new partnerships and develop new projects based on common concerns with youth in the different partner countries. The countries involved in the project were both from EU and also partner countries as we feel that many of the common concerns and the impact on the EU are influenced by these partner countries.
One of the main topics covered within this contact making seminar (CMS) was youth unemployment. In developing the idea for this project we have identified many problems with young people from North African leaving their countries, sometimes even being sold, to come and work in Europe. We see similar problems from Eastern European countries.
The project addressed these problems and several other problems youth are facing in the EU and in the partner countries and worked on new project ideas that will help young people in all the countries. We also addressed the issue of refugees and the impact it has on all our countries and worked on ways to help young people and even policy makers cope with this ongoing problem.
The idea of the CMS is to create new partnerships for our organisation so that we can develop more projects focused on helping youth in all countries in the world. By identifying the needs of youth from all over the world and focusing on methods to strengthen the EU and also its cooperate and partnerships with third countries we believe that we can help more youth in the various areas that need attention, and especially in the fields of education and employment.
The CMS allowed the different partners the opportunity to work together on finding solutions to problems that young people face all over the world and exchange good and bad practices and also allow for the European model of democracy and human rights to be shared with non EU countries.
The partners learned a great deal from each other and focused on the most common problems in all the countries, and worked on building solutions common to all countries.
