EPTO's Brussels youth project enters its action phase
"Pairs & repères", EPTO's Brussels-based youth project, brings together 16 young people aged 16-22 from all horizons to develop their own citizen projects across the city.
After a first 5-day training end of February on identity, social and cultural diversity and on how to deconstruct prejudice, the group met again on 25-26 March for a second action-focused training.
During two intense days of workshops, the participants reflected on the change they want to see around themselves and how to have an impact as a young citizen. They learned about all phases of project management, from defining clear objectives to identifying key partners, opportunities and potential obstacles, to drafting a budget and action plan.
They now have 3 months to implement their projects, which include a short film on youth and school dropout in one Brussels neighbourhood, an intercultural evening, a debate on current challenges in youth work, and a ludic course in a Brussels forest around an intercultural quizz bringing together young people from different horizons.
