Youth&SPA (Activating and involving the YOUTH in shaping the future of rural SPA towns) is an Erasmus + KA3 project, aiming to launch a transnational and intergenerational dialogue among young people and decision-makers. The project’s objectives are to identify good practices, formulate Youth Strategy and recommendations to make attractive small spa towns in rural regions for young people. The main attractions of project partners are the unique medicinal lake/thermal water and its healing power making them famous tourist destinations, but these regions are attractive for the elderly, thus provide less learning opportunities and community experiences for the youth. To overcome this, Youth&SPA addresses students between the age of 16 and 25 having ideas on the functioning of democracy but going to vote for EU Parliament elections in 2019 for the first time.

Topics addressed by the project:

  • Labour market issues incl. career guidance / youth unemployment
  • EU Citizenship, EU awareness and Democracy
  • Youth (Participation, Youth Work, Youth Policy)
