Growing Steps - LogoThe training course Growing Steps will take place in Palermo, from April 5th to April 13th . The main focus of the project is encouraging the enterprising spirit in youths from rural areas.

The project is funded by the European Commission within the framework of Youth in Action Programme, action 3.1. It will involve 40 youth workers from 17 European and EU neighbouring countries: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bulgaria, Estonia, Russian Federation, France, Georgia, Greece, Italy, Lithuania, Poland, Czech Republic, Romania, Slovenia, Turkey, Ukraine.

In a period marked by a profound financial crisis, Growing Steps would like to offer its contribution to dealing with issues related to depopulation of rural areas and their economic isolation.

Through the use of non-formal methodologies, Growing Steps would stimulate creativity, enterprising spirit and inventiveness in participants, so as to promote solidarity and fight social exclusion of people who live in remote areas.

CESIE – European Centre of Studies and Initiatives  – is glad to invite you to participate in the Organization’s Bazar on April 6th and in intercultural evenings on 7th and 8th. The events will take place at  Convento di Baida, in Via al Convento di Baida, 43.

You will have the occasion to learn more about traditions, usages and customs of different countries and to taste traditional dishes from European and EU neighbouring countries. In fact, you will have the chance to taste a piece of Europe, while enjoying music, dances and presentations from all the countries involved in the project.
