The overall goal the ‘Spatial Justice’ project is to engage, empower and enable youth, to lead sustainable actions in the process of transformation of peripheral areas into liveable areas through sharing good practices, innovative tools, and methods. Through the consortium of 6 partners from 5 countries in Western Balkans and EU, there will be mediums and opportunities to exchange experiences and knowledge, and on a longer term, create grounds for future initiatives and collaborations. The indicated set of activities are tailored to deliver a concrete impact from the perspective of youth workers, urban advisors as well as youths from peripheral areas for the purposes of ensuring them a greater inclusion in the informal settlement upgrading process through the development of new innovative urban games.
The main objectives:
- Development of high-quality profiles of urban advisors with the acquisition of capacities to engage a transversal audience of targets (young people living in peripheral areas) in a differentiated programme practice providing urban enhancement methods and the development of skills with a transversal relevance in all dimensions of life.
- Acquisition of practical experience and measurable results in the use of urban gamification as a tool of work with young people.
- Motivation to cooperate with the consortium in further follow-up of the project at the local or European levels.
