Regional trainings were realized through cooperation and collaboration with local Eurodesk Info Points, Youth Centers of The Ministry of Youth and Sport, partner associations and foundations in these and nearby cities.
During the project, in addition to written contents, public research data collected through “Citizens Media” tools was the most effective to affect the project results. Participants of the regional trainings interviewed the local citizens on the themes covered in the three-day trainings. It is the utmost importance to have prepared a policy paper emphasizing the significance of “Youth Information” through using “Citizens Media” tools and public research data on the themes referred in the European Union Youth Strategy Paper”.
Young participants who were well-informed about Erasmus+ Programme and Eurodesk opportunities during the regional trainings developed their own youth projects on various themes covered in the activities and they have already taken some actions to realize their project in near future. This project seeded a lot of new projects. Furthermore, the youth with disadvantages had the chance to learn of opportunities in Europe, and they have taken part in mobilities abroad thanks to connections they had during this project.
31 provinces (out of 81) were represented in the project, about 20 videos were produced, more than 1000 photos taken, more than 250 social media contents were shared, and in total about 2000000 individuals were accessed through the project results.
