The seminar “OrY-E-Nt yourself” was the first activity of the Work Plan “ItinerarY-E-N: On the Roads of Social Inclusion of Young People”. It gathered 24 participants from 10 different countries (Armenia, Belarus, Cyprus, Georgia, France, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Russia, Turkey)
The goal of this seminar was to launch the Work Plan and to start collecting definitions of yong people on social inclusion/exclusion.
The objectives were: to develop a common definition of social inclusion; to share about good practices and experiences; draw attention on the impact of youth work as a tool to promote social inclusion.
During 4 days, young people and social/youth workers shared their experience, discussed the young people’s needs, learned the “Play Back Theater” technique and visited 3 local organisations: FYCA (member organisation), PYUNIC (sports and disabilities) and an organisation that helps Syrian refugees.
Participants met a young political representative and formulated their recommendations.
This activity took place in May 2014 and was financed par the European Youth Foundation of the Council of Europe.
