Farming and fishing for our future
Date du début: 14 mars 2016, Date de fin: 13 mars 2018 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

The project seeks to address the specific economic and geographical obstacles young people living in rural communities face, preventing their full inclusion in society and the labour market. The partners either represent or support young people experiencing these obstacles who live in either rural or coastal communities, who do not have the option to migrate for work and as a result feel stuck and powerless. The partners are all members of the Erasmus+Caribbean consortium, a network which promotes Erasmus+ in the EU OCT's in the Caribbean region. Youth unemployment is at unacceptable levels right across Europe. However, in practically all the overseas countries and territories (OCT's) of Europe youth unemployment is double that of the total population (2.3 times, on average). Some Caribbean OCT's are among the ones with highest youth unemployment in the world (World Bank 2014). Many young people there have never experienced regular, full time employment.The partners all share an interest in tackling youth unemployment by developing their capacity to support young people in rural areas, coastal areas or small islands to utilize their environment to develop entrepreneurial and employability skills. 50 participants from Spain, Italy, UK, St, Maarten, Montserrat and Turkey will live and learn together in Montserrat for 14 days to explore the barriers to education, employment or training that they experience. The aim of the youth exchange is to • Support learners in the acquisition of entrepreneurial skills with a view to improving their personal development and employability in the European labour market and beyond;• Raise participants' awareness and understanding of other cultures and countries, offering them the opportunity to build networks of international contacts, to actively participate in society and develop a sense of European citizenship and identityParticipants will engage in real-world practical activities to develop skills through non-formal learning; they will create their own farming cooperative to develop civic competencies, a fishing competition to develop entrepreneurial skills and conduct on-line research on the topic crowdfunding to develop ICT skills. In so doing the project will empower young people, develop communication, IT, social media and business skills and a sense of entrepreneurship. By the end of the project 1. A non-formal learning programme will be delivered that enables young people to share the challenges of living in rural communities and develop problems solving skill to overcome these. 2. A fishing and farming cooperative will be formed, to develop social and civic competencies3. A community garden will be established for the farming cooperative4. Activities to share knowledge and build international contacts will take place5. A Lionfishing competition will be organised to develop teamwork, leadership and entrepreneurial skills6. 28 Young people will increase their knowledge about Erasmus+ to develop a sense of European citizenship7. 21 young people will achieve the Youthpass certificate to affirm the aquisition of new skills8. 14 young people will be encouraged to progress towards achieving the learning outcomes of two units of the ILM level 3 Award in Enterprise and Entrepreneurship using non-formal learning techniques; 9. 10 will explore the concept of crowdfunding and design a crowdfunding activityThe project seeks to make the partners' youth work interventions more effective and attractive to young people NEET through increased learning mobility opportunities. The project aims to address the specific barriers of economic and geographical obstacles to young peoples' full inclusion in society and the labour market. The project seeks to use the unique quality of learning that can only be gained through international mobility to motivate young people to take part in future education or training programmes. The project will promote non-formal learning within the context of youth exchanges as an effective personal development tool.
