share, evaluate and design the future!
16 - 21 October 2013
Santa Maria Navarrese, Sardinia (Italy)

“Amplifier: share, evaluate and design the future!” is a international project that aims to:

  • Discover and divulge the opinions, interests and needs of young people regarding youth work and youth policies

  • Evaluate a program that is about to come to an end, assessing whether and how its main priorities and objectives were met

  • Launch an international campaign to advocate for the mainstreaming of the recommendations of young people at local, national and European policy-making

  • Promote an understanding of youth work and non-formal education as a powerful system to fight unemployment, to developing competences and soft skills required by the labour market and traditionally not offered by formal education institutions

  • Empower and encourage young people to acknowledge their prospective role as active European citizens and participate in the solutions for social hindrance


The main activity of the project was the trans-national seminar that took place in Santa Maria Navarrese, Sardinia - Italy, in October and brought together 48 people from Italy, Portugal, Poland, Hungary, Croatia, Latvia and Romania representing organizations with great experience in the Youth in Action Programme

The seminar took place after a great deal of preliminary work, including numerous polls, questionnaires, surveys and public consultation developed both online and at local level. The results of the consultations oriented the structure (and content) of the seminar, launching the main issues to be addressed during the discussions. During the Seminar were involved youth leaders, politicians, experts, decision-makers, administrators in the field of youth and policymakers to share opinions, experiences and best practices connected to youth work and youth policies and evaluate some of the key features of the Youth in Action Programme. Also it will be published a booklet with the guidelines and recommendations for future action in the youth field. To promote them it was launched a concerted cross-border campaign to encourage youth to take action at local and international level and make a difference in the building of what will probably be the most important European programme for young people.
