Periplus 2.0 is a Partnership Building Activity for youth workers planned in the frame of the KA1 of the Erasmus Plus Programme and to be hosted by the Italian network SEYF.
The project is coordinated from SEYF's network and foresees the participation of 13 European Organizations from 13 EU countries from South Europe (Italy, Spain, Portugal, Bulgaria, Malta and France) and North Europe (Germany, Czech Republic, United Kingdom, Ireland, Findalnd, Sweden and Estonia).
The project actively involves 27 beneficiaries through the participation of 2 participants per NGO: specifically, a youth worker and a board/decision member, in order to recreate and stimulate the dialogue between the different actors in the youth system.
Periplus 2.0 is a concrete follow up of a previous networking activity (Periplus) and represents the results of a longlasting
international cooperation developed in the youth field from 2010 to 2014.
As the ethimology says, Periplus comes from the Latinization of an ancient Greek word (periplous) that literally means
circumnavigation and it refers to the Captain’s diary. On the same line, Periplus is intented to be a story of the young side of Europe
through the construction of reliable partnership of European youth organizations; a tale about the youth work in each EU country; a novel about the tools at disposal of the youth for increasing occupational opportunities.
Thus Periplus 2.0, as a follow up of previous successful activites, is going to create a new concept of partnership based on:
- Participatory approach: the partnership is intended to be long-lasting and built up on the practice of participatory planning;
- Sustainability: the partnership is going to foster European Citizenship (think global), bringing the added value of each country and
NGO (act local);
- Innovation: the partnership is going to be implemented on a mobile APP which will stimulate partner to be involved and active in the planning, development and implementation of EVS proejcts.
Periplus will investigate the world of youth and youth work in order to stimulate the creation of new projects within the Erasmus
Plus Programme, within the development of EVS proejcts, through the analysis of the most appropriate actions to the different realities and situations.
Periplus, as a Partnership Building Activity, will explore the possibility to create a strong partnership through non-formal activities
that will stimulate a confident climate and will create a strong mood for best practices and strong (human, cultural and professional)
Periplus will be hosted in Lecce (Italy), in the Peninsula of Salento, at the crossroad of the Mediterranean, and it will take place place
for 6 days of activites from 15th to 20th November 2015.
