    Description of the project

    CARE training course, organised in Palermo from 9th to 17th May 2015, is based on the theme of sustainable development and its three key dimensions: economic, social and environmental. Sustainability, creativity and inclusion are seen as the cornerstones to promote empowerment process. In particular, CARE aims at promoting creativity as problem solving approach and to promote creative reuse and recycling as artistic educational activity to involve young people.

    The project believes in the potential of youth work towards stimulating empowerment, as young people can be the best promoters of creative projects involving youngsters in social life of local communities. CARE aims to enhance the sense of inventiveness and entrepreneurship of participants, and address the question of building an active and inclusive society.
