The project Back to the Future – redefining follow up of international youth events will address this specific need and provide sustainable solutions for overcoming this challenge in many youth organisations.
When working on an international level there is always the challenge on how to transfer the outcomes of different mobilities within the local organizations afterwards. There is often a lack of experience on how to ensure the follow-up or the transfer of the knowledge back in the organizations, or in some cases, the organization is not able to provide specific support for the people who were part of the mobility, in order to implement and transfer what they have learned. Additionally, there is also a need for following the long-term effect and impact of the mobility to the beneficiary, as it is very difficult to track them.
The aim of the consortium is to develop guidelines and capacities for quality follow up of different youth processes, transfer of learning from international to the local and national environment and offering space for more active engagement of youth leaders within the civil society and youth field.
