Themes of the seminar:
One of the biggest challenges in the last decade among youth workers, youth leaders, project managers, young people who are enough brave to apply for a youth application of European Commission through its youth programmes e.g. Youth programme, Youth in Action programme, and now Erasmus + programme to find relevant and useful tools, techniques and methods how they can make their youth projects more visible, how they can spread the results of their projects more efficiently and how they can support other organisations, young people, youth workers or even politicians to use or adapt their project results as exploitation. How to reach the micro – level impact and the meso – level impact or even to achieve the macro – level impact with their visibility, dissemination and exploitation activities. Now in the new Erasmus + programme, there is even bigger request from European Commission for these actions, to make huge waves of the supported projects, to reach more people from locals, from Europe and even among youth policy makers. So with our project, we plan to initiate such type of youth projects under KA1 and KA 2 which from the beginning give a huge focus on visibility, dissemination and exploitation as good practices for other youth workers, young people that they can participate then use the tools and techniques and methods in their projects as well.

Through common project ideas and project developments to invent and adapt tips and hints for methods, tools and techniques in order to make these new projects more visible, and how to disseminate and exploit its results. Provide opportunity for youth workers, youth leaders, project managers, young people to find solid partnerships, getting to know more about KA1 and KA2 youth projects of Erasmus +, invent together new projects with practicing already how to use tools, techniques and methods of visibility, dissemination and exploitation of their youth projects.

The methodology of the seminar:
The seminar will be built on the 5 pillars of non – formal education. It will be learner – centred, so based on the needs and expectations of participants and partner organisations. From the beginning partner organisations have to set up their organisational needs, find themes for inventing new youth projects based on the needs of the organisations, local communities and target groups, their participants have to represent the organisational aims, their own learning needs and bring the youth project ideas with themselves as representatives of the organisations. The seminar will be led by experienced trainers who will create and invent new creative and participatory methods in order to support self – directed learning of participants.
