The HEY guide aims at building more equal and inclusive communities through innovative and transnational youth initiatives

The “HEY! What is Happening?” guide presents the data, information and results collected, as well as conclusions reached by 6 nation-wide research surveys, to support the positive empowerment and engagement of youth, and to improve the existing local youth work practices of youth leaders and operators.

The research surveys, carried out simultaneously in all partner countries, were composed of:

  • Secondary research to extract information published by the different stakeholders;
  • Focus Group with 10 Returnees, NEETs and other young people with fewer opportunities;
  • Focus Group with 10 youth workers, youth leaders, social welfare officers, educators and others;
  • Focus Group with 5 public/private institutions involved in youth policies; 
  • 10 personal interviews with Returnees and NEETs.
