3 thematic working tables (simultaneous):

  1. Spazio Messina (1st floor):

Non formal education projects for young people: Let’s play the skills!

In the European CV, the skills acquired in non-formal contexts are defined in a somewhat residual “other skills”. But for young people it is increasingly important to develop them and learn how to put them to good use in order to choose and realize their life and work projects in a more conscious way.

We talk about it in an informal and playful context through the comparison between the reality of Milanese projects dedicated to this field and other national experiences, and to start thinking together on possible strategies, synergies, tools and common perspectives.

The work table is dedicated to:

– stakeholders implementing or collaborating in projects for the acquisition and valorization of non-formal competences aimed at young people

– partner of the MiGeneration project cycle 2013-2018

– organizations aggregating young people in Milan through educational / experiential activities: youth gathering centers, oratories, youth and student associations, scout associations, sports associations, etc.
