ROUTE 60+…stories that shaped a better Europe

Route60+ is a long-term project meant to collect “stories of/for Europe”, that over the past 30 years have shaped and re-shaped a better Europe, through the participation, involvement, empowerment of thousands of young people, in educational programs.


Dates and time investment:

Route60+ will last 6 months divided in 3 phases:
• October Online preparation with the selected participants
• November 2017  Training course
• December 2017 – April 2018 Creative Remote Work, Collecting Stories from all over Europe
• April 2018 Final event: closing seminar + open-conference

So as time investment consider 14 days (travel days included) for the training course and the final event, plus the self-organized work, time during the 5 months of remote work
(further info about the phases below)

The main project objectives are to:
o Focus on and enhance the virtuous path of Europe through the European Commission educational programs for Youth;
o Look-back and revive the impact of EU Programs, how they positively affected youth, people, organizations and in the long term…Europe and the European constructions and values;
o Collect and share stories/experiences from actors (youth-workers, trainers, mentors, project managers, participants in European projects, organizations) who have benefited from these Programs;
o Reveal a new and positive narrative of Europe through the real stories of people who used and benefited from the “mobility” learning opportunities;
o Look forward (after looking-back) and use the positive impact of 30 years of EU programs to better deal with the new challenges Europe is facing;
o Reinforce the importance and recognition of education and more specifically non-formal education;
o Emphasise how a better quality of learning and a deeper awareness of learning processes, can make a change.
