Considering this, some visibility events in five EU participatory countries of the project have been organized to give an answer to its goals, to create this tool properly according to the needs of the youth workers and to enhance the advocacy process inherent to the needs of the field/project.

Networking among Youth Workers – road to greater Recognition at European level

Therefore this event pretend to present to present the project and its tools, to share the European priorities for Youth Work – Recognition and certification of Skills and Competences through different current projects/ processes on EU level, what are the challenges for the youth field in this context, what is the strategic pathway for recognition on policy level, actions for the future and also to gather relevant stakeholders working in the same field for a strongest discussion and debate reinforcing the purpose, efficiency and collaboration within the database.

According with the main goal of advocating for a strong recognition we believe that organizing it during Lifelong Learning Week will bring an added value on the political impact. We believe that the outcomes of this event will contribute positively for the modernization of education and training systems in Europe.
