I had the opportunity to take part in this beautiful project, S-FEST, in Baía das Gatas, a small village in Cape Verde, Africa. It was so motivating and hopeful to be around all the people that were gathered there to help this small community.
During November we traveled in São Vicente, Cape Verde to take part at the second festival within the framework of S-FEST. This project is aiming to promote the cooperation between Europe, Africa and Latin America in the field of youth and explore the potential of youth work in order to increase social entrepreneurship and employability of the young people in the field of community based tourism. It includes partners from Cape Verde, Brazil, Italy and Greece.
New year, new project! Action Synergy is happy to announce the start of the project SEDIN – Creative Methods for Successful Inclusion in Multicultural Schools which coordinates and which aims to promote the use of the Montessori and Creative Learning methods in order to promote social inclusion in multicultural schools.
The vocational education systems of Europe are moving steadily from a school-based system towards a work-based learning system which is considered more efficient and more able to equip the youth with job-relevant skills.
We shared an excellent experience during the training of the European Erasmus+ project From Peer to Peer that took place in Leuven, Belgium from September 30th to October 8th of 2017. During those nine days organized by Melanie Van Oort, we exchanged, in a very effective and lively way, educational methodologies that focused on better education from the point of view of social inclusion, combating discrimination, segregation and bullying.
