SMIT "CREATOR" members were participating in a PBA titled Gathering potentials – Developing sustainable partnerships: Struggling Youth Unemployment in Europe mutually co-ordinated by Dinaraforum and held in Ključ, Bosnia-Herzegovina.
The PBA “Gathering potentials – Developing sustainable partnerships: Struggling Youth Unemployment in Europe mutually” is aimed to gather youth NGOs from programme countries and neighbouring partner countries from SEE to create stable partnerships for common youth activities in order to promote the personal, social and professional competence of unemployed youth, to share how to stimulate mobility and active participation of unemployed young people, at the same time positively influencing their employability. The planned program gives the opportunity to discuss working experiences and strategies of NGOs in their work with youth, in order to give new impulses, to share possible ways to break the issue down and to come up with creative ideas and support for practitioners in the international youth field. The PBA will provide the occasion to share experiences, to foster sustainable and equivalent partnerships, to support capacity building, to contribute towards inventive projects by exploring new working methods and strategies, to improve the quality of future projects and to develop further activities. The methods used will be based on the principles and practise of non-formal education taking into account the needs, motivations and previous experiences of the partners and participants. Further the PBA will provide space for debate, for individual and group reflection, and encourage exchange of best practices. The debriefings of the common work and the achieved results will be accompanied by theoretical inputs and presentations that will complement the outcomes of the common work. Finally the project will support the participants to explore the opportunities of the YiA programme for the work with young people, to establish new contacts and create stable partnerships among organisations and to create new projects.
