International Tool Fair XVI


The International Tool Fair is the event that brings together YW experts all over Europe and BeyondBorders to discuss and learn from each other about innovative methods, and best practices from the field of YW, in order to valorise creativity in non-formal/formal education pedagogical initiatives.

The 16th edition of the International Tool Fair, #ToolUP4sustainability, will take place in November 21-25, 2022 in Marseille, France.

The International Tool Fair aims to be a community of practice open to youth workers, youth leaders, educators, trainers, and teachers, interested in sharing, transferring and adapting educational tools in the frame of non-formal learning.

The Tool Fair will support youth workers in:
  • sharing about, learning and reflecting on how to apply competences and education of youth workers on different levels and in different contexts to one’s own reality.
  • sharing knowledge, being challenged, getting inspired and critically reflecting on youth policy, research and studies of youth work and society.
  • exploring, learning from and supporting further development of practice and methods of working with young people.
  • engaging, connecting and experiencing youth work in context, while linking practice to local reality.
The core topics tackled by this edition of the ITF cover different aspects of Sustainability. Content will explore:
  • Sustainable project management
  • Sustainability and education
  • Sustainability and climate change
  • Sustainability and equality
  • Sustainability and poverty

Moreover, tools (intellectual outputs) conceived within strategic partnership for innovation projects will be enhanced. With this intent, practices coming from the world of formal and vocational education will also be valued, to create cross-sectoral bridges between the different sectors of education dealing with youth and more specifically with:

  • Reduce inequality and poverty in our society
  • Climate related actions
  • Sustainability and education
