The aim of the two-year project is to improve the quality of services related to support and counseling for young people in the field of cultural heritage professions within the network of transnational associations. The project is in the context of the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018 and the social and educational value of European cultural heritage, its contribution to job creation, economic growth and social cohesion.
It is based on the creation of a European platform with online tools for youth workers, employment agents and volunteers who work with young people on a daily basis. The need is determined by the lack of knowledge and specialist advice for young people about job opportunities in the field of cultural heritage.
The project is included in the context of the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018 (as well as in the context of Plovdiv in Bulgaria, which will be the European Capital of Culture in Bulgaria in 2019) and has the direct objective of increasing the employment of young people in the cultural sector. For this purpose, a platform with online tools for employees, job agents and volunteers who work with young people on a daily basis will be created.
For this reason, training will be organized to provide them with the necessary tools to initiate and manage activities dedicated to young people; such as work workshops and personalized advice. The project includes the exchange of good practices, the implementation of networks at European level to facilitate finding youth work with skills related to the field of culture, training youth leaders and youth, and creating a European platform with online tools for youth workers and work agents to inspire them and contribute to the dissemination of work on cultural heritage among young people.
Promoting work in the field of cultural heritage is important because it shows statistics where young people are very motivated to use their energy and creativity to develop work related to the European cultural heritage.
Results are to be expected during the project and on its completion:
