Conceiving and Implementing Inclusion Strategies for NEET´s 0 Reply

20190321_Strategies for NEETs_flyer

Engaging Europe’s young people as possible in the world of work, is one of the major challenges the European Union, and other regions of the world, face nowadays. High levels of youth unemployment and thus disengagement among young people are direct consequences of the global economic crisis suffered in the latest years, but are not the only factors. Since 2010, the term NEET has been used at the policy level to describe young people not in employment, education or training. At the EU level a percentage of 14.2% of the population aged 15–29. While at the global level NEETs varies widely according to both location and sex. According to the ILO Global Employment Trends for Youth 2017 report, young women are over three times more likely to be NEET than young men (34% of young women against 10% of young man are NEETs). Indeed, the proportion of youth NEET global estimation is 28.1%, 76.9 per cent of which are female.

Dialogue Café Association and the Eugenio de Almeida Foundation, host of Dialogue Café Évora, are organising a cycle of sessions focused on how best support young people at risk of NEET situation. In this framework a session on social initiatives supporting NEETs was organised in 2017 and further sessions on inclusion strategies, improving employability, and integration as well as promoting youth dialogue on these issues.

Next 21 March, Dialogue CafĂ©s in Evora and Lisbon are organising a session on Conceiving and Implementing Inclusion Strategies for NEET´s that aims at investigate what are the strategies being used in Portugal and other countries to integrate them into the labour market. For example, which kind of programmes evaluating their competences and intrinsic talents are being implemented and how better support the development of their skills in order to integrate the labour market. It would be important also to enlighten which kind of areas/professions are of special interest to young people such as those related to Art|Graffiti’s, Bar|Barman’s, Sports|Dance trainers, Fashion|Clothing as well as those related to ICT and internet.

The session will take place on Thursday 21 March 2019 from 15h30 to 17h.

Social Economy at Dialogue Café 0 Reply

20190312_Social Economy_flyer

 

The definition of social innovation is associated with the creation of new ideas (products, services and models) that simultaneously respond to social needs and create new social relationships. These are innovations that are not only good for society but also increase society’s ability to act. Knowing that a social problem is a social condition that a segment of society sees as harmful to members of society and in need of correction, we find that it is increasingly emerging to encourage the creation of new projects, companies and sustainable jobs associated with the promotion of innovative business models with high social impact.

The Dialogue Cafe Association assumes that it is also a priority to encourage cooperation between the actors involved in the network, aiming to facilitate access to the sharing of good practices in the area of ​​promoting entrepreneurship.

So, in this session on social economics, it is intended to give participants an opportunity to clarify doubts and learn from others. The session will take place in the framework of the project EFES. The EFES project is developed under the Interreg V-A Spain-Portugal Program (POCTEP) 2014-2020 and co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).”

Youth Leaders 4 SDGs & 2030 Agenda 0 Reply

2019.02.12_Youth Leaders 4 SDG 2030 Agenda

 

Overview

“The Sustainable Development Goals  are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, and peace and justice. The Goals interconnect and in order to leave no one behind, it is important that we achieve each Goal and target by 2030”. With this purpose, Dialogue Café Association is organising a cycle of debates focused on the SDGs and 2030 Agenda in order to contribute to its achievement and raising awareness.

As young leaders of tomorrow and today, youth has a key role in engaging with the future. Today, there are 1.8 billion people between the ages of 10-24—the largest generation of youth in history. But close to 90 per cent of them live in developing countries. Numbers are expected to grow. Until 2030, about 1.9 billion young people are projected to turn 15 years old.[1] Hence, over the next fifteen years, youth should be a key driver for the successful implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Youth should play the role of critical thinkers, change-makers, innovators, communicators, and leaders.

In this framework, Dialogue Café Association is inviting young leaders to discuss about how best we can achieve SDGs and how young people can be involved in the promotion of the 2030 Agenda. During the session, participants will discuss also about the Youth 2030 Strategy, the World Youth Report “Youth and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development” and the campaigns launched in this context such as Be the Change, LittlexLittle, Not too Young to Run.

Coding 4 All – We are looking for partners! 0 Reply

CODING 4 ALL

The report recently presented by the CIP, entitled “Automation and the Future of Labour in Portugal”, prepared in partnership by the McKinsey Global Institute (MGI) and the New School of Business and Economics, indicates that about 1.8 million people “will need to improve their skills or change jobs by 2030, “which” poses significant challenges that will require an active role from both government and the private sector in the process of retraining the workforce.”

In this context, “the digital transformation of national society and economy represents a huge opportunity” and to minimise the challenges arising from this transition it is necessary to re-qualify the society.

With this purpose and taking into account the need of starting the process of preparing future generations for the skills that the transition to the digital economy will require, the Dialogue CafĂ© Association proposes to launch a pilot project that will consist on a cycle of activities to be implemented in Summer 2019 – precisely when young people are on vacation and more available for non-formal learning – which would include:

  1. a) Coding Training Course
  2. b) English Training Course
  3. c) Story-telling Course
  4. d) Hands on: my first app
  5. e) Solve problems: the planet is our home
  6. f) Life is beautiful: be supportive

The aim is to implement a pilot training for young people aged from 12 to 14 living in territories of interior regions of Portugal (five locations, to be determined) for a total of 600 participants, and then, on the basis of the results obtained, to evaluate the possibility of continuing these activities during the academic year 2019-2020 and to eventually extend the network of beneficiaries to other locations not only in Portugal, but also in other Portuguese-speaking countries such as Cape Verde, Brasil and Mozambique.

The principle of this project relies on the use of the videoconference system developed by CISCO – called telepresence – and provided to Dialogue CafĂ© Association and its network members.

This project is based on the use of the existing Dialogue Cafes network – namely Lisbon and Évora – and the creation of three new temporary locations in Portugal, located in localities in interior areas that could later become permanent or been transferred to other locations. To this end, and as is the rule with the existing network, local partners will be sought to serve as hosts of the Dialogue CafĂ©s, which may include cultural centers under the tutelage of city councils.

We are looking for partners! Join us now!

We are looking for partners who wish to support the initiative from the public, private and philanthropic sectors. As well as local partners who wish to provide space, the provision of internet and electricity, as well as, if possible, local facilitators and support in the dissemination of activities and mobilisation of young people.
