Last day of our Contact Making Event!
The first part of the day has been dedicated to case study in groups: each group had to reflect on the practices and methods discussed in a case study in which we took some examples of a successful practice or project in a given community. We tried trying to come up with keywords connected to the case studies and to answer to questions like:
- What strikes you the most?
- Can you implement the same idea or part of it in your home country? Can you take inspiration from that?
- What are the element of innovation brought by the case study?
- Do you think the project idea is sustainable in the future? How?
Afterwards, the entire group discussed all together on reflections and practices studied.
Some time was then dedicated to the YouthPass certificate, and to a networking activity, where it was possible to discuss about present and future projects and initiative ideas from the partners, and to find potential partners to develop them.
Today, we started with a short energizer, then we shared the results of yesterday's activity on Erasmus+ challenges: we shared about the characteristics of a perfect partner for a project, how to engage youngsters in the local community, we designed logos and record informational and promotional videos to involve youth in European projects.
Afterwards, we worked in groups to start developing concrete project ideas for youth, taking into consideration different categories such as main idea, target group, value proposition, communication channels, partners and stakeholders.
The day began with a lot of energy and excitement due to the cultural visit in Rimini. We had a guided tour in the city in which we saw some historic sights from the Roman era. Later we had some free time and we spread around the city to enjoy the sun and some traditional food of Rimini.
In the afternoon, after we returned to the hotel we went all together to the beach and completed some "Erasmus challenges" ikn a funny way. Later, we returned to the hotel where we had a session with some Italian organizations that presented themselves and their work with youngsters.
After dinner, we had our intercultural night where everyone presented their country. We singed, payed games, danced typical dances form partner countries , we drunk and ate from all over our countries.
Cultural visit in Rimini:
After resting and recharging our batteries, the second day started with even more energy. After some fun energiser we made a research about youth unemployment and NEET in our countries and then we presented the results. Thus we had the opportunity to learn about the situation in different countries, discuss and compare.
In the afternoon ,after another energiser, we divided into groups again and had a world caffe in which we exchange different approaches and good practices in the fields of youth work.
After this process we presented the results and then we concluded the day with a short briefing.
We started our day at 9 in the morning. Some of us we had already met at night but there were also many new people who hadn't met each other yet. We broke the ice by doing a speed dating with each other and starting interesting conversations which continued even after the session. Furthermore, everyone expressed their expectations, their fears and their contributions to this event through the "Tree of expectations" game, in which we wrote our fears in the roots of a tree, our contributions in the trunk and our expectation in the leaves.
In the afternoon, we got to know each other also in a professional perspective. We performed the activity of "NGOs Bazar", in which we presented out organizations as it was a market and had the opportunity to discuss with others, exchange ideas and good practices. The day concluded with the feedback form and then with a nice dinner that everyone enjoyed.
