Awareness raising initiatives


Target youth workers and youth leaders, Aġenzija Żgħażagħ and EUPA collaborate to orgainse the National Tool Fair.The aim of the Tool Fair is to promote quality in youth work and support capacity building of youth workers and to raise awareness of best practices of non formal education and youth work practices.

It is an opportunity for participants to shape educational and experiential pathways, to run a workshop and to share tools for learning with colleagues, as well as to participate in workshops conducted by their peers. Beyond merely experiencing a wide variety of tools for learning, the Tool Fair aims to provide a space to reflect on tools, give and receive feedback, pave the way for their transferability and further development.

The theme for 2016 was #Ready for the ROAD and the toolfair provided a stimulating environment for innovative pedagogical approaches and practices.
