• Non-Formal Education

    The non-formal education is the learning which takes place through planned activities, in terms of learning objectives and learning time. Where some form of learning support is present, but which is not part of the formal education and the training system. The activities and courses are planned, but are seldomly structured by conventional rhythms or curriculum subjects. They usually address specific target groups, but rarely document or assess learning outcomes or achievements in conventionally visible ways.

  • Exchange of Good Practice

    The primary goal of an exchange of best practices is to share experience and generate know-how on a specific topic or subject between different organisations. Furthermore, the exchange of good practices also seeks to develop and reinforce networks between institutions, increase their capacity to operate at transnational level, and share-confront ideas, practices and methods. In this regard, the “uCivic” project develops virtual and face-to-face meetings in order to exchange best practices regarding civic education, civic competences and digital tools.

  • Working with Youngsters

    “uCivic” aims to empower the new generations of Latin Americans and Europeans on civic education and civic competences, so they can become active citizens in their communities and build a more inclusive society. In this sense, is more than logic (and essential) that the ToolKit of the project is built according to the requirements of the youngsters. For this reason, several focus groups have been held to collect their needs and, at the same time, to test the ToolKit.

  • Working with Youth Workers

    “uCivic” aims to empower the Latin Americans and Europeans youth workers with frameworks and tools that can support them to promote civic education among the new generations of Latin Americans and Europeans. In this sense, is more than logic (and essential) that the ToolKit of the project is built according to the requirements of the youth workers. For this reason, several focus groups and mobility events have been held to collect their needs and, at the same time, to test the ToolKit.

  • Multiplier Event

    The multiplier events are activities specially organised to share information and experience (data, best practices, results, outputs, testimonies) of a project with a wider audience. By general rule, the target groups of multiplier events are key social agents or stakeholders interested and related with the objectives and topics of the project (decision-makers, public authorities, youth associations, universities, schools, NGO's, youth workers). Nevertheless, the general public can also participate. “uCivic” will develop different multiplier events in each partner locality: Asunción (Paraguay), Montevideo (Uruguay), Palermo (Italy), and Salamanca (Spain).
