Europe Starts from Your Home Door!
Start date: Jan 1, 2015,
End date: May 31, 2015
International seminar 'Europe Starts from Your Home Door' will be the first of its kind in Estonia - combining pan-European youth discount card - European Youth Card, and youth information partners from Europe and Estonia, exchanging best practices on this field - working whether with local municipalities, county governments, ministries, private sector or non-governmental organizations, and therefore further motivating partners to offer modern, up-to-date, online, youth-friendly and compact services for our final target - young people aged 14-26. Seminar will be implemented in the period of 29.03.2015 - 01.04.2015, during 4 programme days.
European Movement Estonia has been issuing European Youth Card from 2006 and from 2014, organization has taken the step further in starting to develop the programme where young people start getting their services not only from one place (Noorteportaal.ee - Kogu noorteinfo ühest kohast!), but also from their mobile phones, including other relevant services such as rewards and entitlement programme taken over from YoungScot from Scotland, UK. Besides, programme foresees the development of youth information APP, including various partners. Current international initiative is one, yet very important part in order to change best practices, learn from each other, but also to show Estonian partner organizations the international dimension/ scope.
Seminar includes altogether 29 participants and each and every one of them are expected to take an active role in it. There are two participants from each foreign partner, from European Youth Card Association we are including 3 participants. Most partners are coming from EYCA network (EYCA office, Scotland, Slovenia, The Netherlands, Poland, Malta), whereas two of them are directly working with Eurodesk network (Italy and Turkey). Estonian participants are coming from our partner organizations who are interested in developing youth card together with youth information.
'Europe Starts from Your Home Door' seeks to foster the development of the youth card in general, but more specifically to offer quality and modern services for young people that all partner organizations are working for. In addition, since EME is planning to include also representatives from the Ministry of Education and Science and National Youth Work Centre, we aim at better understanding and benefits the collaboration and EYCA network could bring to young people living in Estonia, but also people working for them.
