Cooperativa Sociale “Il Mosaico” – member of ALDA (European Association for Local Democracy) – is working on the submission of an interesting project proposal within Erasmus+ program, Key Action 1 on youth exchanges.
The project will be developed in the city of Dueville (nearby Vicenza, Italy) which will host young people from different countries involving them in a program of activities about digital fabrication. The aim is to increase creativity through digital innovation, 3D printing and handicraft know-how, taking inspiration from all the activities that can be made in a Fab Lab – Fabrication Laboratory.
A Fab Lab is a small-scale workshop offering (personal) digital fabrication. It is set up to inspire people to turn their ideas into new products and prototypes by giving them access to a range of advanced digital manufacturing technology. Some examples of activities that could be performed are: tour of local enterprises to know the digital fabrication in Veneto Region, courses about machines used in digital fabrication such as 3D printer/CNC router/laser cutting, creation of a product using the digital fabrication, workshop about role of the women in the digital fabrication, etc.
“Il Mosaico” is looking for 4/5 partner organisations that will send 5/6 participants each, including a youth leader.
All accommodation and food costs will be covered. Travel costs will be reimbursed according to the distance calculator and the Erasmus+ rules. Participants are asked to pay an extra fee of 40 euros to the youth exchange expenses for the raw materials used in the machines.
For any information, either to give your availability to the project, please write to [email protected].
AER is happy to share this call for partners with its member and network as well as to cooperate with its partner ALDA in the dissemination of this interesting opportunity!
The deadline for expressing your interest in the project is 12th April.
