Press release – Project Action for Future

The Action for Future project combines the efforts of 5 partners, representing different regions of Europe – Central (Startklar Soziale Arbeit gGmbH – Germany and BEST – Austria), Eastern (Your Ideas Matter – Bulgaria), Northern (LoPe – Norway) and Southern (AFP Patronato San Vincenzo – Italy).

The starting point of our joint effort has been supporting adult trainers in the delivery of training to young adults in risk through design thinking methodology for civic engagement and participation.

By equipping adult trainers with the adequate design thinking manual (IO1) and resource book (IO2) we aim at increasing the quality of training provided to disadvantaged young adults, so that they can successfully engage in community development initiatives. In that sense, our proposal is in direct link with one of the adult specific priorities of Erasmus+ programme for 2020, which emphasises on “extending and developing the competences of educators and other personnel in effective teaching of low-qualified adults”.

You can find all our developed outcomes, methodologies and tools here:

Together we have reached several thousand people across Europe via social media, events, workshops, meetings and seminars. Find more details information on our webpage:
