Project Summary

The project is co-funded through the programme Erasmus+, KA1 – Mobility of Youth Workers and consists of two activities, a Contact Making Event hosted by InterCollege in Denmark and a Training Course hosted by InterBildung in Germany.

The project seeks to address the need for youth organisations to be always evolving and pushing the limits of value creation through innovative and quality projects. In order to maximise the impact and outcomes from Erasmus+ projects, the partners need to be creative, think multilaterally and be ambitious with their proposals. They need to create learning opportunities that take participants outside their daily realm to effectively develop their soft skills through transnational youth projects.

The aim of the project is, thus, to foster value creation in transnational youth projects through promoting the entrepreneurial thinking and innovative actions of youth workers.

The aim will be reached through the following objectives:
1) Create a platform for youth workers to test and spar their creative and innovative ideas with peers from other countries;
2) Encourage creative thinking amongst youth workers and motivation for thinking outside the box;
3) Inspire Youth workers with examples of ambitious projects to spark creativity;
4) Foster cooperation between the youth workers in developing unforeseen and innovative mobility projects;
5) Develop the capacity of youth workers to identify and analyse stakeholders and their needs when developing and implementing transnational youth projects;
6) Encourage youth workers to reflect upon project management in youth work from the perspective of long term “Evolutionary” impact and value creation;
7) Strengthen youth workers competence to facilitate learning through transnational youth projects maintaining the core values of non-formal education and safety and security.

The project gathers 18 partner organisations from 15 countries (Germany, Denmark, Hungary, Lithuania, Slovakia, Czech Republic, North Macedonia, Italy, Romania, Turkey, Estonia, Croatia, Spain, Poland, and Bulgaria), amongst which 11 are NGOs, five are social enterprises and two are local/regional public bodies in youth work and national education.

As you already know, measures are changing every day in every country due to epidemic situations. If organizers estimate implementation of the youth exchange won’t be possible due to the safety of participants, the dates of the exchange will be delayed.


Even we are offering participation in this project “for free” it doesn’t mean it is free. As an organization, we are covering project administration costs and our young volunteers are working hard, investing their energy, knowledge, and time to make this opportunity possible. Why? Because we are in love with mobility and striving to open even more international opportunities for young people and youth workers in Croatia and wider who invest time in self-development and make positive changes in their environments.
