Open Networking and Synergy Meeting
Start date: Dec 1, 2010,
Following the outcomes of several consultations and work on organisational priorities, it has become clear that EEE-YFU should become a greater facilitator of horizontal co-operation between its European member youth organisations, specifically in the form of projects. At the same time YFU is faced with the challenge of integrating new social networking and web 2.0 technologies into its field of work. So, during three days in Budapest, Hungary, the Open Networking and Synergy Feasibility Meeting will seek to identify synergies between 14 local European youth workers from Austria, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Estonia, France, Germany, Hungary, Lithuania, Norway and Turkey, and allow them the space to develop a deep and mutual understanding of each other's local youth work, learn about the possibilities of the YiA programme and develop projects together, both in topics they identify and in the area of new web technologies. Participants will be involved in an intensive Preparatory Process, using online tools, to ensure the results of the meeting also reflect the needs of the volunteers' organisations. The feasibility meeting itself will employ highly interactive, non-formal methods. The same tools and approach will also be used to follow-up the meeting and the resulting projects.
