The Mid term project " Citizenship and Democratic Participation in Political Transition contexts" aims at developing youth work strategies fostering inclusive democratic participation in the public sphere.
Through a process that includes the development of two training courses, a practical phase with local activities developed by participants and using social media; the long term project will bring together twenty participants from the EuroMediterranean area to develop youth work competences fostering inclusive democratic participation.
The course will use a combination of non formal education methodological approaches (including experiential learning) and the experiences and support of practitioners in their youth work practice.
Through developing key competences such as learning to learn, social and civic competences, sense of initiative and entrepreneurship, the project will foster social cohesion, creativity and spirit of entrepreneurship for young people in countries were political transitions have taken place in recent times.

The course aims at developing youth work strategies fostering inclusive democratic participation in the public sphere.

The concrete objectives are:

To develop Youth Work competences central to active citizenship based on inclusive democratic participation in the public sphere;
