Your Move? Youth Move!
Start date: Jul 1, 2014, End date: Jan 1, 2015 PROJECT  FINISHED 

In today’s Europe youth struggle with many problems. Unemployment is one of them and we consider it as one of the most important dangerous one. According European Commission survey, unemployment has reached unprecedented levels in the EU-28. In September 2013 youth unemployment in the EU-28 stood above 23.5%, up by 0.4 percentage points from a year! Facing this data we decided to create this project. Project titled "Your move? Youth move!" is a multilateral 8 day long Youth Exchange which aims to bring together young people and give them opportunity to explore their entrepreneurs qualifications and creativity skills through simulation games. Moreover it will give youngsters possibility to understand the process of game design as a tool to fight with youth unemployment and increase their entrepreneurs initiatives under Erasmus+ Programme. As the result of this exchange participants will prepare simulation games empowering their entrepreneurs skills. Through activities of non-formal education including group work, outdoor activities, interactive lectures, quizzes, games and workshops, the participants will have opportunity to build a tool which will help them to understand the importance of multiplying entrepreneurial skills. Furthermore by getting in touch with the other participants, they will broaden their horizons and improve mutual understanding within Europe. The exchange will be held in Pistoia, Italy from 03-10 October 2014, and will bring together 49 young leaders and volunteers from Lithuania, Poland, Greece, Portugal, Bulgaria, Romania and Italy. The main objectives of the Youth Exchange are: - To provide a broader perspective on unemployment among young people coming from participating countries; - To empower youth with entrepreneurs qualifications and creativity skills; - To provide an opportunity to meet peers from different cultural backgrounds and stimulate mutual understanding and intercultural dialogue between them; - To provide participants with the skills necessary to design and implement simulation games as a tool to fight youth unemployment.
