Eurodesk: A Snapshot in 30 Stories

Eurodesk: A Snapshot in 30 Stories

Eurodesk UK have just launched a new publication with international mobility stories from young people and youth workers.

Eurodesk: a snapshot in 30 stories is available on their website:

https://www.eurodesk.org.uk/resource/eurodesk-snapshot-30-stories

It is great to see several stories from Momentum World’s fabulous volunteers have been featured.

This new Eurodesk UK publication showcases 30 original stories covering young people’s experiences and the work of the youth sector.

Eurodesk’s mission is to help young people experience the world. Engaging and inspiring young people – and those who work with them in the youth sector – is key to this. 

The range of experiences covers 6 topic areas: Have Your Say, Study, Travel, Volunteer, Work, and Youth Work. From volunteering placements to studying for a semester abroad, everyone has a unique experience and a story to tell, not only on what they did but how it affected them personally.

The publication is interactive so you can navigate between different stories and explore them at your own pace, selecting preferred topics and/or specific stories. It is also accessible for text readers.

Promoting Positive Lifestyles

Promoting Positive Lifestyles

We are celebrating the completion of our latest Erasmus+ strategic partnership project. For the last 2 years, we have been working with partners in Slovakia, Italy, Romania and the Netherlands to share experience in using non-formal education to prevent negative lifestyles and risky behaviour among young people. The project highlighted the wide range of “lifestyle problems” affecting young people in Europe, and explored some of the policy and practical solutions which have been found to work in the contexts of different countries. A related handbook for youth workers is in the final stages of preparation and will be available shortly.
