Meet fellows of the Erasmus+ project “Strengthening Capacities of Young Leaders and Youth Organisations for Meaningful Community Participation” (CYMECOP).
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the Fellowship in Portugal has been postponed to 2021, however work on youth empowerment in rural areas of 4 participating countries never stops.
We are holding a number of pre-fellowship Zoom meetings to get in touch and implement local capacity building activities in rural areas of Armenia, Moldova, Portugal and Ukraine.
The first meeting was focused on the project presentation and team-building activities. After it our national teams of young leaders are ready to start active work in their communities.
In the second meeting we were learning the Portuguese best practices of youth participation in rural areas. Our special guest José Nunes presented the Make it Better efforts in growing learning communities through the SparkSEEDs project. Jaime Reis and Joao Vargas shared the experience of Buinho and Associação Educativa Nacional de Inclusão e Inovação nas Escolas-AENIE of forming proactive learning communities in rural areas. Thanks to our speakers for their presentations and insightful tips for our fellows!
The project “Strengthening Capacities of Young Leaders and Youth Organisations for Meaningful Community Participation” is co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union and implemented by the consortium of four organisations.
