Context This project « Young people committed to social justice « JejuSO brings together four partners from France, Germany, England and Sweden. They have each a long experience in adult education and youth work carried out by their socio-educational teams in rural environments and urban zones. Within the network of the IFS « International Federation of Settlements », they are committed to a common aim: working for more social justice. They believe that, in the face of the problems of integration, discrimination and unemployment encountered by young people in their countries and the European space, the socio-educational teams need to renew their methods of intervention. By working on instruction in commitment which leave more place to the active participation of the young person/people. The partners of the project hope to create, in the medium term, a network of young Europeans IFS, which could, in the long term, be an active participant in mobility actions and European cooperation with a common objective: working for more social justice. Objectives: -to develop the path of commitment of the young people at a European level (by developing their skills) -to develop their capacity to take up action in connection with societal issues at a local and European level (by letting them discover, through contact with their peer-groups, other cultures, life-styles and the reinforcement of values such as democracy and solidarity). -to involve the young people in the structuring of dialogue and partnership between the European members of the IFS (by their active implication throughout the project). Participation: 48 young people between the ages of 18 and 22 years old, balanced between boys and girls, selected for their motivation in being committed to all the stages of the project and to the construction of possible prospects... plus 9 accompanying persons. The activities, planned following consultation between the partners, include the following: The preparatory activities in each partner country -the activities during the encounter: discovering the path of commitment, the situation scenario, cultural activities, intercultural apprenticeships, collective creativity... -evaluation and valuation of the activities all along the project via the social networks, the partners sites, during the encounter and in each partner country.
