Time: 14 June 2017
Location: Maribor, Slovenia
Event type: PAS event
Manifesto topic: Active citizenship, democracy & participation
Target audience: Young adults
Description: Some findings from the event: A more in-depth cooperation and sharing of information between different organisations, professionals, etc. are essential. Based on the PIAAC survey results, an active practical application of skills increases competencies: the level of skills and frequency of application of written practices by young people are mutually encouraging. Critically aware young people are able to assess a social situation, which is the basis for active engagement in the society. Young people have a lot of informal knowledge for which they should develop awareness that it can be applied to new situations. The stereotypes about professions and their relation to a certain gender should be broken as early as in primary schools. Active participation of young people in designing youth projects brings greater engagement of the young and thus enables them to expand their competencies.
