Welcome to the second National Tool Fair to be held in Malta! This event is being organised by the EUPA (European Union Programmes Agency) and Aġenzija Żgħażagħ at the Youth Village in Santa Venera. Inspired by SALTO-YOUTH Euromed Resource and Good Practices Centre, these events, comprising trainers, educators and youth workers, culminate in the International Tool Fair XI which will be held in Malta between the 7th and 12th November 2016.
The theme of this year’s International Tool Fair, #readyfortheroad-Tools|Solidarity|Inclusion aims to address "Tools for Solidarity and Inclusion", through innovative youth work approaches. Tool Fair XI shall focus on displaying and promoting specially developed non-formal learning tools for reaching out to and supporting young people at risk of marginalisation and social exclusion - including NEETs, young people with a migrant or refugee background - in acquiring the necessary skills and competences that can help promote their active participation in society and the workplace.
This Tool Fair is mainly about displaying and promoting the power and creativity of non-formal education through specially developed tools for working with young people. In creates an environment in which all those working with young people can interact and display and exchange good work practices.
We hope that all those participating in the event will further develop their skills and competences by displaying and exchanging good work practices that enable them to enhance tools for solidarity and inclusion services and opportunities for young people.
