Aims & Objectives
''Youth AgriHacking Talent’΄, is a youth exchange project that involves 7 different countries (Greece, Italy, Rumania, Turkey, Moldova, Ukraine and North Macedonia). The project has as one of the main goals to enable the young generation to develop new skills in order to provide them with the necessary theoretical and practical knowledge around the agricultural industry. The past decades the people moved from the rural areas to the main cities lead to high unemployment rates and less opportunities for the young generations to become interested around this industry.
It is well known that the European Commission has strengthened the opportunities for young people to become more involved as there is an increase of employment in agricultural practises. As a result European Commission motivates the European citizens to participate on the agriculture industry especially the younger generation to follow career pathways that will push them towards the abandoned rural areas. Highly important to target younger generation as they will bring new ideas, skills and creativity in the industry.
All participating countries during the project intent to engage, empower and educate young people about the agricultural industry and the opportunities found around employability across Europe and especially rural areas.
The aim of this youth exchange project is to develop social, cultural skills and understand from a different point of view the skills that such a project can provide you with. Young people will have the opportunity for personal development at all stages of the project: at preparation, implementation, evaluation and reflection. This is an important skill for them young people in our time as we will help them overcome internal barriers in terms of public speaking and their overall performance in teamwork governed by planning, reporting and evaluation of results.
During the workshops they will get the chance to understand the differences in working with people across Europe and get involved with the local community. Additionally, they will share cultures and tradition, break stereotypes and promote their common perception, multicultural dialogue and youth activism at local, regional, national and international level.
At the end of the project a "reflection booklet" will be created from all 7 countries with all the skills, informations and things that they have learned in the workshops. The booklet will be used as a guide to remember in the longterm what they have learned and apply them even after the event. Also the reflection booklet will be used by the participants as a resource to complete the Youthpass certificate.
