Start date: Dec 31, 2016, End date: Oct 30, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Together we can REACH (Recover European Ancient Cultural Heritage) is an Erasmus+ Youth Exchange designed by the italian association Civitas Mileto with the collabboration of the greek association POLIANA and the spanish association Tabalà. The exchange activities will involve 27 active participants and will take place in Mileto (Italy) from August 25 to September 1. Despite recent studies on employment trends in European countries agree that the crafts and all the works based on the "know-how with the hands" will be among the most sought professions in the next 10 years, for the third consecutive year in the first nine months is chronically decreased the number of new small craft businesses. The goal of the project "Together We Can REACH" is to change the negative perception that there is on crafts. We intend to recover and preserve the memory of the ancient crafts, transferring skills and knowledge to the younger generations. The goal is to create training activity in order to enhance the traditions of the city and territory. Protect and enhance, in particular, the traditional trades threatened with extinction, but holders of higher degrees of opportunity. Collect testimonies and experiences of local young and old Artisans in order to increase knowledge and create content to be shared with a wider audience, to experiment with new ways to increase the participation of young people in rural areas, encouraging them to discover the cultural heritage of their small community. The methodologies that will apply are based on the "project work" and learning by doing and ensure know-how through an informal approach. Through interactive workshops, participants will learn about the issue on the traditions, craft and culture works. in a more analytical and in-depth manner. Develop the ability to work in a diverse and multi-cultural teams and learn to think creatively and entrepreneurially. With this project we hope to make an impact locally, nationally and internationally.
