Project place: Slovenia
Project dates: 11th – 18th August 2016
Deadline for applications: 25.05.2016
ABOUT THE EXCHANGE
Today we are facing an increasing passivity of young people who, despite the tremendous opportunities offered by today’s society, ideas and the potential they have, these are not exploited. By sharing the concept ‘Criticize, suggest, act’ we want to encourage young people to become actively involved in their local environment and enhance their skills to such an extent that they will be able to take effective action and their motivation will be expanded to other young people. During the programme we will try to guide participants through five stages of project management: initiation, planning, executing, controlling and closing. Doing this will not only enhance their current knowledge but will also help them with starting their own project or exchange of any kind from merely a scratch.
There will be 40 participants from Spain, Lithuania, Macedonia, Czech Republic, Malta, Croatia, Estonia and Hungary – 5 participants from each country.
The main objective of the exchange is to empower young people for working in the local community. The participants will learn the concept of project management through theory and practice so at the end, they will be able to use it themselves.
