This project was a bilateral exchange between two not for profit organizations "WORLD NET" from Tito (PZ) Italy and NICOLA " from London UK.
Each group consisted of 20 young people aged between 18 and 30 years old and two youth leaders. The students involved in the project were young students, unemployed young people, young people looking for their first job coming from disadvantaged background.
The groups staid in London and most of the activities took place in Vanston Community Centre, Samuel Lewis Trust, SW61BU, London .
The theme that we discussed was: Entrepreneur and entrepreneurship education in relation to different opportunities in culture, art and entertainment sectors in relation to the wealth of the territory. We opened a connection between youths from two different countries, those youths are still in touch and they share job opportunities from their country.
The objectives of the project were the stimulation of entrepreneurship, the enhancement of knowledge in the field of art and culture and the appreciation of the wealth of our territory .
Thanks to the methodology of non-formal and informal learning young people shared their know -how with their international peer.
The project had a strong impact on the territory, especially in the months ahead its realisation and after the mobility. This was due to the excitement of the young people on participating to an International youth exchange; they advertised the project and then the outcomes amongst schools, universities, youth clubs; one of the best outcome, which also exceeded our expectation, was the set up of a Volunteer group, who also registered to ECAS applied and received fund to deliver a youth exchange, the set up of a Solo Trader, the set up of a Company and few more people looking into open a business, while other participants decided to continue their studies.
Another important aspect it was that the Italians improved their English language and all young people improve their CVs, interview skills, computer skills, social networks and social media, the enhancement of their skills also helped the improvement of the territory in which they live. Also we were conatcted by Organisations, which asked us information on Erasmus+ and the way to participate.
The activities that we developed during the project were: working groups meetings, assessment activities throughout the project, play groups, working groups , meetings with cultural associations, meetings with local institutions, the dissemination of results.
