The main concern is to assist on the procedure for their youth workers development in both professional and personal level in order to improve their approach towards their youths needs. In a more specific context the main idea behind this project was to provide tools and share reflections and expertise to youthworkers (and in macro level to create the level of sustainable impact on local communities and in wider lifelong learning society) that support their development for more successful implementation of inclusive practices, empowering creative thinking and strengthening international active cooperation.
