To start with...

My name is Kadri and I am one of the organizers of the international project called „Catch the Opportunity“. The main goal of this event is to discuss issues concerning unemployment and especially youth unemployment and how to decrease it.

During the process we are going to meet young people from Hiiumaa, members of different voluntary organizations, the workers of Estonian Unemployment Insurance Fund and local decision makers.

As a result we hope to prepare a document gathering all our ideas, which we tend to deliver to different organizations, decisions makers, political parties and institutions not only in Estonia, but also in our partner countries.

The project itself takes place in July (7.-17.) in one of Estonian islands called Hiiumaa and brings together 35participants from 6 different countries (Estonia, Lithuania, Spain, France, Turkey, Romania).

This project is not only about an attempt to work out solutions for unemployment (through voluntary work and non-formal learning), but also gives a brief insight to all participants’ cultures - so different from each other. While getting to know all of them, we hope to break ruling prejudices and contribute to the integration between the countries in the EU as well as the ones waiting for the proposal to join in.

Hope to upload new posts as soon as possible..

Take care
