Brave New YOU–Reloaded will bring communities closer by building trust between different groups of young people as well as capacities to become active agenda-setters & actors for change at both local and European level to co-create more open-minded & inclusive Europe.
Project tackles issues of lack of participation of disadvantaged & less represented groups in communities around Europe. Through a process of capacity building local and international activities, youth workers & youth organisations will develop competences for reaching out to disadvantaged youngsters and communities. Project will empower disadvantaged young people to be community leaders, identify and deconstruct hateful narratives, and build more inclusive narratives for communities.
Project gathers 11 partners from 10 countries around Europe working with diverse groups of young people in disadvantaged and deprived areas on local level, or representing them & providing space for their participation on international level.
Brave New YOU – Reloaded will have 3 main flows:
Flow 1:Creating Brave New Communities: reaching out to young people in situations of disadvantaged in local communities, creating local groups of young people of different background that will work together on recognising, understanding and deconstructing harmful narratives and constructing new ones. Flow 1 will have activities both on local & European level with young people designing & giving feedback regarding the process & the outcomes
Flow 2: Creating Brave New Approaches: gathering information from the work done on local level during the Flow 1, existing and new practices done by partners & developing new methodologies that will be adapted to different environments – schools, youth organisations, youth centres for both local & European/international level.
Flow 3:Creating Brave New Europe: based on the experiences from Flows 1 & 2, recommendations and strategy on how to work with disadvantaged young people in different contexts.
