The Youth Policy Seminar, a mobility within the European Network City Bound, took place in Nuremberg (Germany) from 15th to 19th January 2018.
There were 3 participants from each of the project partner countries: Germany, Czech Republic, Greece, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and Spain. During the exchange, they carried out a series of very useful dynamic activities in order to improve their knowledge and understanding of different European realities, encouraging them to find solutions to current problems that may encounter in sectors such as education and youth work.
Some of the proposals made by the youngsters were:
- Promoting international mobility based on education and training among the youth.
- Disseminating Erasmus + youth exchanges and other mobility programmes in high schools.
- Ensuring the formal recognition and validation of non-profit youth associations and youth councils in different countries.
- Improving cooperation between businesses and educational centres aiming at developing students’ skills and competences, in order to meet the requirements of the current labour market.
They also explored and discovered the city in a dynamic manner: in intercultural groups, they had to carry out a series of questions with historical and cultural content around the city. In addition, young people had the opportunity to conduct surveys to the locals, both young and old, to find out if people are aware of these types of projects in their city.
