From 22nd to 28th October 2021, the association l’Alqueria Projectes Educatius gathered 20 youth workers from 7 international youth organizations to participate in the training course in a non-formal context, on the topic “creativity and innovation in youth organizations”. The course is part of the Creativity and Social Entrepreneurship for All project, the first edition and is co-funded by the Erasmus + programme.
The project coordinated by the association l’Alqueria Projectes Educatius supports non-profit organisations in Romania, Lithuania, North Macedonia, Spain, Bulgaria, Italy and Portugal to explore concrete methods and tools for creativity, innovation and design thinking to address challenges faced by young people and local communities.
“The crisis generated by the Covid19 pandemic can be a driver for creativity and innovation at national and international level. The involvement of youth workers in non-profit organisations is needed to help young people deal with uncertainty and identify solutions to individual and community problems through creativity and design thinking methods. Thus, through this project and training course, we set out to provide them with the knowledge, tools and courage to facilitate innovation processes in their communities,” said Sandra Ubeda, CSEA project coordinator.
During the six-day training course, the 20 participants designed 3 models of local interventions dedicated to young people with limited opportunities. In the coming months, the non-profit organisations involved will develop a creative roadmap useful for those who want to propose incubators of ideas through which young people can solve a variety of local challenges.
L’Alqueria Projectes Educatius supports, through local initiatives and international projects, the training of young workers with modern and attractive work tools that support young people in acquiring life skills such as creativity, critical thinking, teamwork, decision-making methods, flexibility and adaptability.
About l’Alqueria Projectes Educatius
Founded in 2009 in Valencia, L’Alqueria Projectes Educatius is a non-profit association formed by secondary school teachers, vocational training teachers and trainers from various disciplines that focuses its activity in the field of education, training and cultural promotion in the European environment.
To this end, it carries out different actions aimed at different target groups in collaboration with public entities, educational centres, companies and trade unions. Activities such as the organisation of courses and seminars, the management and participation in European projects, and the organisation and participation in events and conferences in the field of education, culture, inclusion, equality and employment.
These activities have led L’Alqueria to develop a network of contacts and cooperation agreements with European and local entities that allow us, with the experience gained, to increase the quality and expand the number of actions in which we participate.
