The Youth In Transition project has been developed by six partners from four different European countries. Each partner has extensive experience in creative methodologies for ESD for diverse youth, including hard-to-reach youth groups like migrants and refugees.
This project was born at a moment when face-to-face activities were restricted due to COVID-19 regulations and as a result, the desire to implement blended learning to reach a wider audience became a solution. Thus, this project builds on transforming existing innovative material into online and blended learning offerings. As most young migrants and excluded youth have access to mobile phones, this project provides educational materials accessible through mobile and computer, with a strong focus on creativity and arts.
The aim of YINT is to make a valuable contribution to creating a resilient, low-carbon society in Europe in that the project raises awareness of climate-friendly lifestyle choices among young people and mobilizes them to act and showcase youth empowerment in response to the Sustainable Development Goals, the Paris Climate Agreement, the ‘Sustainable Green Europe’ and others.
The first Trans-national Meeting between the six partners took place from the 27th to 30th of March 2022 in Sicily, Italy. This occasion marked the first time partners met in person due to the pandemic. Partners discovered the Don Bosco 2000 reality and worked together to find common ways to implement blended learning in exercises.
The second Trans-national Meeting took place in Denmark, where NOAH and LOS were the hosts. This time, a Training of Trainers (TOT) and a Pilot, with participants coming from different countries, took place at Makvarket.
The third Trans-national meeting took place in beautiful Vienna, at the University College for Agrarian and Environmental Pedagogy Vienna. Meetings took place to discuss about the project, multiplier events and the future of the projects.
