Social exclusion is a major problem of our time, which has replaced the “old notions” of poverty and marginalization. Social exclusion is a cause of poverty, conflict and insecurity. With this mobility we aim to improve the skills and the background of youth workers, who will be better able to identify risks and opportunities, develop themselves, and acquire additional practical tools needed to prevent and to remedy social exclusion, such as social theatre or flash mobs.

The main theme of the mobility is raising awareness of the realities and offering non-formal education tools to foster a more inclusive society through anti-discrimination youth projects with marginalised groups, against social exclusion.

Methodology: The mobility will use the non-formal and informal education methodology. Participants will be able to:

– develop their own set of skills and competences, through individual and group work, according to their needs

– develop their capacity to meet and work with new people, from different countries, backgrounds, lifestyles

– experience and improve skills of working in a multicultural team;

– improve the tolerance and the ability to constructively listen to other ideas, positions

– acquire new tools and skills to combat social exclusion

– build competences in communication

– develop ideas for new projects.

Key concepts which will be explored in our mobility will be: inclusion versus exclusion, analysing social exclusion and factors which influence it, discrimination, empowerment, youth participation versus apathy, active citizenship, local institutions and the role of NGOs,  EU and local strategies against social exclusion, attitudes towards target groups in need, taking action. Participants will learn new information, they will have space for discussion, debates, sharing and developing new tools to help them combat and surpass social exclusion efficiently.
