The project proposal “YOUAca” intends to provide high quality and multi-perspective education for young people and for the staff members and leaders of sports organizations. Our way to implement is the “learning by doing” approach and the intergenerational dialogue method.
Learning by doing means to do things in practice and after that sharing experiences and ideas, by promoting an effective dialogue between young people and adult/senior experienced sports leaders.
This project enables open and common platform for young leaders and senior leaders to meet and share experiences through an intergenerational dialogue It is important to understand youngsters’ point of view and provide a convincing channel between future policymakers and reigning leaders.
Furthermore, the project applies participatory and co-design methodologies to the facilitation of intergenerational dialogue. The methodologies will allow the development of a fruitful community dialogue, conducted by skilled facilitators and will result in the co-creation and implementation of initiatives (the project provides, in fact, a sort of internship into the sport organizations will be held after the transnational training meetings so to implement the skills developed; this internship will provide the cooperation between youngsters-young and adults-seniors).
