Project Building

Smaller groups start the concrete work on building projects, interspersed with short lectures and mini workshops on different topics (IC dangers, NFE-FE, participative methods for young people …). You will get feedback for your project plan from your peers, the trainers and possibly from an National Agency officer. Realising a project is easier, when the ideas have been processed further already in the training. We invest in you, so that you can invest into your young people!


The activity promotes cooperation with South East Europe (Macedonia, Montenegro, Albania, Serbia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Kosovo): roughly half of the participants will come from the region.

The call is also open for all the Programme Countries, although priority is given for participants from Macedonia, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Switzerland, Austria, Poland, the Netherlands and Finland.
