Between April 2 and 5, the second "Edu-Action 2.0" meeting was held in Montevideo, a training project funded by the Erasmus + program that focuses on the prevention and reduction of early school leaving in different countries. From a global approach, the project includes different mobility activities to promote the learning of good practices among the project partners. In this meeting, the project communication strategy was outlined and work was carried out to carry out an awareness campaign on the problem of early school leaving.
Six countries, six organizations, and a common goal: to combat early school leaving. This is the main motivation of the Edu-Action 2.0 project, coordinated by the Italian organization Per Esempio ONLUS and co-financed by the Erasmus + program of the European Commission. This project will involve an important exchange of good practices to combat early school leaving in these countries through mobility activities carried out by 12 young workers of the organizations participating in the project.
On this occasion, representatives of the project partner organizations have met in Montevideo (Uruguay), where the Uruguayan association Audele. It has been in charge of hosting the meetings and organizing several local visits related to the objectives of the project. A project coordinator for each organization and another person in charge of communication tasks for each country have participated in the sessions to define and implement the general communication strategy of the project, as well as a videographic campaign to raise awareness about early school leaving.
These days, the team has worked on communication and marketing strategies for non-profit associations, to finish developing an idea about the main aspects of this project in terms of communication and dissemination. In addition, participants have been able to see first hand some local youth work initiatives, both from the capital, Montevideo, and the rural environment of Uruguay.
At the end of the year, within the framework of the Edu-Action 2.0 project, one-month learning stays will be held in which participants from Spain, Italy and Estonia will travel for a month to Nepal, Kenya and Uruguay (and then to reverse) to learn how youth work is developed in each country. In addition, this project will have two study visits (in Estonia and Kenya), and two training courses in Palermo for the youth workers who will carry out the observation stays.
