YEU Year of Innovations

Youth work should be boring! On trainings and youth exchanges we should make sure that we always do the same energizers, activities, role-playing games and evaluation exercises. Habits are important and also, it is less tiring then doing something now. After all, we are young and we like it if nothing changes.

Still agreeing with the above?

We didn´t. We believe that youth work should be exciting, inspiring, changing, innovative and cool. We believe that it is important to keep things interesting and that surprising you is a good tool to do it. We also believe that we want that YEU should be an organisation that is recognized internationally for its capacity to innovate and drive youth work forward. We can change things if we are willing to put some extra effort and that is why we decided to have the Year of Innovation.

In 2014 we took some important steps in order to start a important change which will make YEU the innovation standard in European youth work. This year we produced more than 30 new tools on the different events YEU was running, we motivated the trainers and organizers of PET to insert innovation in each event and we even developed an e-tool.

Of course, like Rome wasn´t build in one day, this year of innovation is just the beginning. We can only become innovators if we all believe in it and we work to bring new ideas, tools, methods and approaches in our daily practice on local, national and international level. For that we count on you! We challenge you to flip yourselfs around in 2015 and send us your succes stories.
