Information about the Project

The project is focused on the NEET phenomenon in each partner country. The main aims of the project are to build channels and social spaces in order to reintegrate NEETs into society, especially those who are long-term unemployed. The project foresees to create and realize several activities such as creative labs, debates, round tables, job shadowing, human libraries, etc. Each activity will aim at promoting active citizenship among young people/ NEETs as well as enhancing their civic and democratic competencies.

The project’s main target group is NEETs. Other beneficiary sides are youngsters and workers who can encourage NEETs to actively participate in civic life and to contribute to decision-making concerning matters affecting their social integration.

Within the project are planned 8 international events which aim is to develop outputs for tackling the NEET phenomenon and better understanding about it.
