Project PATHS is launched by kick-off coordination meeting in Portugal
ALDA is currently launching the implementation phase of the project PATHS (Youth for Solidarity Economy and Entrepreneurship in Europe) in cooperation with B-LIVE INTERNATIONAL NETWORK (Spain) and 4 other partner organizations from Spain, England, Greece and Portugal. The kick-off coordination meeting of the PATHS Steering Committee is taking place on 12-15th March in Portugal. PATHS is a strategic partnership between European organizations which are active in the field of education, training and youth, designed to promote cooperation and innovation in young social entrepreneurship.
PATHS is funded by the European Commission under the programme ERASMUS+ KA2 Strategic Partnership. The project arises from the analysis of the context in which organizations develop their activities and their previous experience in this field. The activities that contribute to mapping solidarity entrepreneurship in Europe will follow the coordination meeting.
Considering the current social context and future prospects of the youth in Europe, young entrepreneurship could be the only chance for a new generation. The objectives of the project are therefore to promote cooperation and networking among participating organizations and develop activities maintained over time (integrated promotion of youth entrepreneurship) based on ongoing collaboration between European organizations (strategic alliance); to strengthen capacity of organizations working on the promotion of youth entrepreneurship through resources, materials and tools that will improve the quality of its activities and results; to promote the development of specific skills by workers of the organizations involved (trainers, youth workers) and to provide professional training for them as for facilitators of youth entrepreneurship projects in the field of solidarity economy.
