KA2 Cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices - Partnerships for Creativity
Social inclusion is one of the main goals of the Europe 2020 Strategy. The focus of the Inclusion Strategy is to include young people with fewer opportunities in EU projects and in society in general. It is therefore very important to equip teachers and educators with the competences necessary to successfully manage and support social inclusion of young people, especially those at risk of marginalization. This can contribute to positive interaction with various groups, regardless of their diversity. Social inclusion is also one of the main national policy priorities of most European countries. The Covid-19 pandemic outbreak affected young people. Many of those belong today to Neet group.Today we are all witnessing a possible new crisis that will affect not only Europe but the whole World. We are not able to predict its effects, but we know today that after the Covid-19 wave, which has swept and flows through Europe and the World, many companies will fail, many people will be unemployed, young people may not even finish their education and be at risk of poverty and social exclusion.
We created this Strategic Partnerships project under Erasmus+ aimed at support young people with fewer opportunities in their better social inclusion. To achieve this, we will use innovative method which is Educational Robotics and we will create the Robotics workshops using non-formal methods. Thanks to participating in the workshops, we intend to improve the key competences of young people, digital skills and creativity, their motivation to learn and achieve success, their self-esteem as well as social and intercultural skills. In addition, thanks to joint activities during local workshops, during virtual meetings with young people from partner countries and thanks to international workshops in Bristol, young people will improve their relations with peers and teachers.The workshops will end with handing out certificates, that will help young people to have their skills recognised.
