From the 25th to the 29th of June 2019, we were in Lima, Peru for the LANGUP meeting. LANGUP is an Erasmus+ Capacity Building for Youth project which aims to promote the knowledge of local and minority languages and link them with the increase of the employability of the young people. The focus of the project is on the role of youth work to raise the awareness of these opportunities, to support the young people to valorise them and to support intergenerational learning which is a key factor in this process.
The 4th and last meeting of the #PlayEurope project was organised on the 3rd and 4th of June in the offices of Action Synergy in Athens. The project is co-financed by the Erasmus+ programme and aims to promote social entrepreneurship among young people in 8 European countries.
After the successful Young Digital Leaders event in Athens, Action Synergy visited Sparta to deliver there the YDL training. We were hosted by Yiannis Ritsos school. Young Digital Leaders is a Europe-wide pilot project, sponsored by Google, that aims to empower young people through digital citizenship, critical thinking and media literacy skills, beyond the classroom, so that they can grow up safe, responsible digital leaders. Action Synergy is the partner of Google and ISD for the implementation of this initiative in Greece.
In the 13th and the 14th of May 2019, DAH Theatre from Belgrade hosted the second official meeting of partners from the Rights4Kids project. The project is co-financed by the Creative Europe program and is aiming to encourage children and adults to reflect on children rights and exchange their experiences and stories, as well as to raise awareness of the Convention on the Rights of the Child through theatre.
The past weekend, 6 & 7 of April 2019, Action Synergy organised at Impact Hub in Athens two seminars within the framework of Young Digital Leaders with the participation of many teachers. This project is a Europe-wide programme, developed by the Institute for Strategic Dialogue (ISD) and funded by Google.org, that aims to empower young people through digital citizenship, critical thinking and media literacy skills that reach beyond the classroom, so that they can be truly empowered as responsible digital leaders.
