Details for the Activity

  • Topic: Encouraging interaction with cultural activities and experiences for marginalized people
  • Place: Abroad
  • Duration: 2021-2023

This project is addressed towards increasing the cultural experiences of young people aged 15 to 21 years of age who are not in employment, education or training who also have fewer opportunities due to social, cultural and economic obstacles, who are unable to escape this disadvantage due to, among other aspects, their comparatively low level of cultural engagement, and the way in which this translates into a disadvantage in their professional and personal lives. 

The project aims to provide a framework for cultural experiences for marginalized young people across Europe, to help them achieve 25 cultural experiences by the age of 25 years old. Based on the UNESCO definition and within the context of this project, the consortium broadly defines a cultural experiences as An activity through which a member of the target group, willingly engages or interacts with, tangible cultural heritage, and/or natural cultural heritage, with the aim of consciously enhancing or benefiting their skills, knowledge or attitude.

Whilst adopting a European perspective throughout the project, the transnational dimension of the 25 by 25 project is highlighted and strengthened through the peer-learning and peer exchange element of the 25 by 25 Digital Platform. To be able to achieve the results of the project, a transnational project approach is mandatory. This approach will allow our target groups to understand, value and respect the different cultural and linguistic manifestations of the EU, through knowledge of the diversity of geographic, natural, social contained within shared cultural heritage and transnational experiences. Without this European-focused dimension the value of the project would be diminished. It is through peer exchange and shared approaches in all of proposed intellectual outputs, that the indirect target group will strengthen the relationship of NEET and migrant youths with European cultural heritage, and facilitate them knowing and valuing European cultural heritage, which will in turn, allow the direct target group (NEET and migrant and youths aged 15 to 21 years old) to contribute actively to its preservation and improvement, whilst also developing their own emotional and social skills, understanding the value of diversity and develop tolerant, open and flexible attitudes.
