nyh koolitus youth exchange portugal

Noored Ühiskonna Heaks (NYH) is promoting a call for participants for a Youth Exchange called “PRO(F)LITERACY 2.0” which will take place from the 12th until the 18th of June 2024 in Braga, Portugal.

About the project:

In everyday life, citizens face many financial decisions, such as managing the family budget, savings, investments, loans, or consumption. Therefore, financial literacy is fundamental to a healthier economy and an inclusive and equal society. Despite this importance, according to the S&P Global FinLit Survey, “Financial literacy rates vary widely across the European Union. On average, 52 percent of adults are financially literate”. According to the UN – Report on the World Social Situation 2016, as a direct consequence of the lack of financial literacy skills, different forms of social exclusion arise based on poverty and social disparities. And several authors agree that there are groups at a more significant disadvantage, with data suggesting that levels of financial literacy are negatively associated with indicators of social mobility and poverty/social exclusion (Batsaikhan and Demertzis, 2018, “Financial literacy and inclusive growth in the European Union”, Policy Contribution, Issue n.8).

Today, in a scenario of economic and social instability intensified by COVID-19 and the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, young people – future adult generations – face increased difficulties in building their future, especially when seeking personal and financial independence. This reveals the urgent need to continue investing in promoting financial resilience and empowering young people for the transition to independent living.

This is the motivation for PROACTING and the rest of the consortium to implement this project, namely to maintain and improve the work of empowering young people with the necessary skills to prevent and/or combat phenomena of poverty and/or social exclusion, facilitating their transition to independent living. By addressing a problem that is global in scope and has harmful effects on the population, this project will develop work that is relevant to the generations of young people who are increasingly informed, aware, critical, and prepared to deal with the financial issues they face in their daily lives.

 

Aims of the mobility:

  • Exploring PRO(F)LITERACY 2.0 with young people, encouraging their capacitation and development of key competencies and financial literacy, including in an international context;
  • Encouraging and developing intercultural work, presenting the results produced during the local sessions, and promoting the exploration of the knowledge and competences developed in an international context;
  • Development of skills and competences from the European framework of 8 key competences for lifelong learning;
  • Development of EntreComp skills and competences;
  • Increase security and confidence for young people to participate in other mobility activities;
