CulTY – Cultural Tourism for Youth: New approaches to the cultural tourism for youth initiatives
The main aim of the CulTY project is to promote the cooperation between Europe and Asia in the field of youth and explore the potential of youth work in order to increase the entrepreneurship and employability of the young people in the field of alternative cultural tourism enterprises.
In order to promote this objective, CulTY is going to organise the following activities:
– 1 transnational seminar
– 2 capacity building training courses
– 1 e-learning course
The aim of these activities will be the training of youth workers from the Partner Countries in the organisation of non-formal and informal learning activities for the development of the skills of young people related to the organisation of alternative tourism activities such as community tourism and alternative itineraries for minor sites.
It is expected that 120 youth workers from all the partner countries are going to be involved in the activities of the project both through the participation in the transnational training events and through their participation in the e-learning course that the project is going to develop. These youth workers are then going to implement practically the knowledge obtained through their participation in training events with young people where they are going to replicate and practically implement the knowledge acquired.
The project CulTY is a Capacity Building for Youth project which is being implemented from 5 countries in 4 countries. Action Synergy is the Greek partner of the project. The partners from India and Vietnam are sustainable development organisations that are willing to build their capacity to support youth exchanges and also to support the youth in their local community. The European partners include organisations experts in entrepreneurial related training, experts in e-learning courses and experts in the field of alternative cultural tourism.
The transnational seminar is going to be organised in Italy (Castellamare di Stabia) and the two capacity building training courses are going to be organised in Vietnam and India. The last training course in India is going to be combined with a final conference.
The organisation of an e-learning course will increase significantly both the time that a youth worker could dedicate in the training course and the number of people that will be able to attend the course.
