Project Summary

Nowadays, the world is rushing forward without paying attention to aspects related to the future of societies and the environment. In a way, an international movement of various institutions called Fair Trade responds to this problem. We would like to carry out this project in order to:

  • Encourage young people to set up their own enterprises that will meet the needs of today’s world
  • To increase the awareness of the society about the aspects related to sustainable development, ethical approach to business, conscious, responsible, and sustainable consumption, and the need for changes that the world needs nowadays.
  • to solve the problem of unemployment among young people
  • Increase of satisfaction of young people from the activities.
  • Providing young people with knowledge and experience, which they can’t get on the labor market by themselves – somehow directing and facilitating their career start
  • Communicate to local communities about fair trade, in which one person does not live at the expense of another, and that consumers pay specific prices that ensure producers are fairly compensated for their labor and an acceptable income for the trade organization

Above all, however, it is important to raise public awareness that people are more important than business.

Target Groups: Young people, youth workers, and young women with fewer opportunities

To achieve the planned goals, we believe that the following activities are necessary:

  1. International meetings:
    – Kick-off meeting – to develop a project implementation plan, discuss potential risks that may arise in the implementation, discuss project assumptions, time frame, tasks to be performed, and dissemination. All this to properly plan the activities foreseen in the application.
    – Intermediate meeting – after a few months of joint cooperation, it is necessary to verify the work already done, “correct the course” of the project, discuss the next steps, the budget used, and take further materials to create a report. What is more, the dissemination activities so far and plans for the next months will be discussed.
  2. Local conferences – to communicate the project ideas and activities within a wider audience consisting of people from varying professional, educational, and cultural backgrounds and from all walks of life. The conference will draw upon ”Fair Trade Our Fair Future” ideas, best practices, and outcomes but it will be broad in scope; it will be rooted in application-oriented interactive activities with labor market reinsertion and inclusive education methodologies and training practices for youth in the field of entrepreneurship with great emphasis put on the concept of Fair Trade. A very important aspect of the conference will be the presentation of the e-learning course and digital handbook, that corresponds to the needs of young people from partner countries in the terms of Fair Trade.
  3. Short-term joint staff training events – during the short-term joint staff training event, youth workers are obliged to take an e-learning course (each participant will sign the agreement). At the end of the training event, each youth worker will receive a Youthpass certificate. New trained partners’ youth workers will transfer and implement all the knowledge acquired during the project concerning entrepreneurial ideas, mainly how to set up a company and put great emphasis on the concept of Fair Trade.
    4.Implement “Fair Trade Our Fair Future – e-learning platform: – through Internet tools we would like to reach a wide audience, and technology nowadays makes it easier for us. The online learning platform should be simple and intuitive so that also people with lower digital competence can easily acquire the knowledge we provide.
    5.Create “Open/online/digital education – E-learning course/modules” – for the above platform to be fully equipped, it needs relevant content prepared by experts (in our case, these are Youth Workers). The modules have to be complete enough so that after passing the course, the user is fully equipped with the knowledge of the broadly understood concept of Fair Trade and elements related to entrepreneurship and sustainable development.
  4. Create “Fair Entrepreneur” – digital handbook – in order to provide knowledge about the project in a structured way, we would like to create a digital handbook, which will contain all relevant information related to sustainable development, responsible consumption, entrepreneurship, and other aspects referred to in the Fair Trade principles. The Handbook is to be created by theoreticians and practitioners who consider such a mix of knowledge as the best way for people who are just starting their careers or want to change their approach to business.
