From the 13 to the 16 November the final meeting for the SMART Youth Center project, financied by the Key Action 2 of the Erasmus+ Program, took place in Cinisello Balsamo.
At the meeting there were two representatives for each partner organization of the project: the grrek organization IRTEA, AVOD MLADINSKA MREZA MAMA (Slovenia), CHANGE YOUR LIFE NOW – CYLN (Greece), Amicus Certus (Lithuania), DYPALL NETWORK (Portugal), KEKS STODFORENING (Sweden) e l’azienda BOLT Virtual Services and Productions.
All together, during the first day, we went through all phases of the project, from the activities carried out to the results achieved, and we discussed the latest project result, the Toolkit for Digital Youth Work.
DYW is the use of digital media and technologies in the field of socio-educational animation, and the manual we have written will present concrete examples of innovative learning approaches and inclusive activities that can be done with young people.
Following the revision of the document, IRTEA, the project leader, provided us with guidelines for the organisation of the final event that aims to disseminate the four project results on the territory.
On the second day, we conducted a workshop with a class of the Liceo G. Casiraghi to test the Cityful digital game, thus giving both the students and the partners and youth workers to experience live one of the activities that will be in the Toolkit.
The Cityful game, result of the European project of the same name of which the Municipality of Cinisello Blasamo is lead partner, was the perfect opportunity for the SMART Youth Centre partnership to measure itself with the theme of digital and socio-educational animation with young people.
In the afternoon, to best conclude our last project meeting, we held a guided tour of the Cultural Centre Il Pertini, an innovative and important space for young people and their initiatives dedicated to them.
