The project will examine the University of Edinburgh’s “Model for social and personal growth through Outdoor Learning” and test whether it will help young people in Warmia-Masuria (Poland), Cantabria (Spain) and the Mid-West Region (Ireland) to engage in society, become active citizens and acquire professional skills. Expertise partners from the UK will be involved to train the trainers of outdoor learning. The model will help participants recognise their own strengths and talents, build self-esteem, provide career advice and prepare for job-seeking. Job matching with employers and mentoring will also be offered.

Target groups:

  • Young people not in employment, education or training
    in Warmia-Masuria (Poland), Cantabria (Spain) and the Mid West Region (Ireland)
