Towards Collaborative Practice (TCP) Forum on “Digital and Social Innovation for Social Inclusion”

Hello Erasmus+ Followers, After almost two years, TCP Forum is back!

This time residentially in Ioannina, Greece, taking place on 5th – 9th December 2022. 

In its topic, it has many elements in common with the two previous editions, the one in Cyprus in 2020, which was held online, and the one in Malta in 2021, which was canceled due to the pandemic.

The Towards Collaborative Practice (TCP) Forum is a cross-sectoral event exploring the potential of youth work and Erasmus+ to foster social entrepreneurship, digital and social innovation among young people. It is part of the Youth@Work Partnership, alongside other projects tackling youth employability and entrepreneurship, organised by the 14 member Erasmus+ National Agencies and SALTO-YOUTH Resource Centres. You can learn more about Youth@Work at www.youthatworkpartnership.org and @YouthatWorkPartnership.
