Dear friends and collaborators

Dear friends and collaborators,

Welcome to the second edition of the National Tool Fair Malta taking place on Saturday 24th September 2016. It is with great anticipation that we are working towards this event.

The theme for this year’s tool fair #readyfortheroad-Tools|Solidarity|Inclusion - 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. Taking up this challenge and being proactive in creating this change, EUPA and Agenzija Zghazagh have partnered up to ensure a continuous growth and success of the National Tool Fair.

Together with all the participants we will be focusing on Tools for Solidarity and Inclusion to share tools which will enable youth workers, trainers, project managers and other organisations with innovative tools to further strengthen cooperation and to allow them to support young people at risk of marginalisation and social exclusion.

The youth field is coloured by variances of work emerging from the different backgrounds of the organisations we work with and work for: this tool fair is an occasion to appreciate each other’s approaches to non-formal learning. Let us all get #readyfortheroad to share and enrich each other’s practices.

We encourage participants to submit tools for this event, creating the space for this Tool Fair to take place! We wish you all the best of luck in securing a place at the International Tool Fair 2016 which will take place in Malta this November.
