Seminar “Come Together for Future Opportunities” – Greece

Title: Hate speech fighters

 Dates: 5 – 11 December 2018

Place: Thessaloniki, Greece

Project description:

Youth unemployment has a profound impact on individuals, society and the economy. The criticality and vulnerability of the youth situation in the labor market is both a great untapped resource that Europe cannot afford to squander, is a social crisis that needs to be remedied. Unless current trends are reversed quickly, the levels of today risk youth unemployment can harm job prospects for young people with long-term, with serious implications for the future growth and social cohesion.

With the Europe 2020 Strategy, the European Commission has stated the need to invest in young people to overcome the economic crisis that afflicts many European countries for years, fill the gaps in our economic system and create a model of smart, sustainable and inclusive. Young people are, therefore, the key to a dynamic and prosperous Europe. With the tools in place and the proposed initiatives (Youth on the Move, Youth Guarantee, Erasmus plus) their talents, their energy and their creativity will help Europe to grow and become more competitive, thus exiting the economic and financial crisis.

The project aims to create and stimulate future collaborations between the participants and build a solid and lasting network of European partnerships enabling them to develop common projects around the theme of employability and youth participation. It will take place in Thessaloniki, Greece and will last 7 days (including arrival & departure day). The working methods used will be varied and interactive in order to ensure a balance between theory and practice.

A series of dissemination activities will take place in order to ensure that the outcomes of the project will not be restricted only to the participants and their organizations, but will also be shared with relevant institutions involved in entrepreneurship and youth participation or other organizations that would like to join or cooperate with the established network
