From October 3rd till October 4th, CGE team members Ammalia Podlaszewska and Zafar Saydaliev have visited a partner organisation @Еuni Partners Association, which hosted the second transnational meeting of the project “Promoting Quality Digital Youth Work through the Creation and Mapping of Connected Learning Pathways in Europe: an innovative way to reach marginalized young people”.
#InCaseYouMissed: Connected Learning aims to create an on-line tool in the form of an interactive and dynamic portal backed up by a mobile app which will map out learning opportunities provided in formal, non-formal and informal learning for young people.
On the second meeting several topics were discussed, among which are the ways to secure and validate training opportunities (open badges for validation of the learning?), digital training packages accompanying the training methodology, some IOs such as “Toolkit on creating Digital Learning Routes and synergies” (at national and European level).
The project consortium remains the same:
– University of Ulster, Belfast, Northern Ireland
– Association “Euni Partners”, Bulgaria
– Emphasys Centre, Cyprus
– ВУДУТЕК ООД, Bulgaria
– Hälsinglands Utbildningsförbund, Sweden
– European Digital Learning Network, Italy
– and us, CGE Culture Goes Europe – Soziokulturelle Initiative Erfurt e.V., Germany.
The project is co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union, Key Action 2 – Cooperation for Innovation and Exchange of Good Practices.
“Show me a Future: Dare 2 Dream!” is back for its second Youth Exchange, “Dare 2 Care – You and Me, together in Europe”, which will take place between 04.11 – 10.11.2019 in Thessaloniki, Greece. Interested in getting to know more?
As part of an international project DC4JOBS (Digital Competences for Jobs), we organised a one-day Conference: “Digital Youth Work 3.0. Competences for the Labor market of Tomorrow.”
We started to dream… From the 12.08. to 18.08.2019 30 young people from Estonia, Greece, Germany, Italy and Romania came together in Mühlhausen, Germany in AntoniQ to speak about their desired future.
We are inviting you to apply for our upcoming project “Show me a Future II: Dare 2 Dream!” and its youth exchanges.
A project is made in cooperation between Culture goes Europe (CGE): Soziokulturelle Initiative Erfurt e.V. (Germany), Associazione Culturale Strauss – Arcistrauss (Italy), United Societies of Balkans (Greece) , Asociatia Tinerilor cu Initiativa Civica – ATIC (Romania) and Mtü EstYES (Estonia).
The first episode of Building Bridges Podcast is now available for listeners! This week Duarte Lacerda had an interview with Markus Rebitschek – an experienced youth worker, founder of CGE Culture Goes Europe, now team member of Europäische Jugendbildungs- und Jugendbegegnungsstätte Weimar. The interview turned out to be an engaging conversation, during which Markus told us how he started as youth project organiser, what inspires him, about the choices he have made, and how he sees the future of youth work. He also answered the questions asked by our followers.

From 7th to 15th of June CGE representative Grisha Grigoriev joined a Project Partnership Building Seminar in Mariapfarr, Austria. The seminar brought together 40+ participants and representatives from Europe and beyond. It was a week that explored Human Rights Education, Intercultural Learning and many other topics that participating organisations deal with.
The issue of global climate change is perceived as something that affects the whole planet, but is quite often overlooked when it comes to its impact on a particular area. This can make us underestimate the specific effects that it has on our city, region, and hence – lead to believe that it is something that happens far away and that input of every single person and community efforts won’t influence anything. We wanted to bring more attention to it.
CGE has always promoted social integration and participation, as it believes in the benefits of belonging to a tightly-knit community, where everybody cares for each other. That’s why it’s now launching the Building Bridges podcast, a project intended to be a communication facilitator between society and civic, social and youth workers. Are you interested?
The past week, two of CGE’s regular volunteers, Grisha & Matee, became trainers in the third part of Robotic-Know-How Youth Exchange. With the assistance from Anneirudh Sundurarajan, they developed a detailed week of events, which coupled with the Croatian sun made for a memorable event!
