1. Context: The name of our project is: “Enterprising and creative young people - together in modern Europe”. We consider the topic to be relevant and significant because of the elaborate and fast changing technological progress, the intense dynamics of the labour market, the rising unemployment rate among young people not only in our country but in Europe as a whole. According to a recent report released by Eurostat the youth unemployment rate is extremely high. A currently pressing issue is the one of youth unemployment, aggravated by the refugee crisis. This respectively imposes higher demands on young people. They need to develop qualities like flexibility and adaptability and realize the need to gain profound knowledge and improve their competencies. By getting involved into this project work and benefiting from the experience of their peers from the other European countries, the young people will learn how to be more active and creative, take the initiative, take well- measured risk in order to accomplish their goals and ideas at the labour market. The main idea of the project is to provide opportunities for young people from different European countries (Bulgaria, Italy, Lithuania, The Czech Republic, The UK) to exchange experience and knowledge, to meet face-to-face and online, to acquire key competencies, discuss current issues and talk over aspects of their future development.2.
