Walking Towards Employability

Walking tours
ERASMUS+ 2020 - 2022

The new European program Walking Towards Employability was created with the aim of finding sustainable and flexible models for young entrepreneurship in the context of cultural heritage. These models aim to be applied in cases of socio-economic exclusion especially in vulnerable populations.
Karpos in this new European program responds to its needs by educating young people in the use of audiovisual media in order to highlight hidden aspects of their culture and giving them an innovative tool that will help them in their professional life.
Our partners are experienced organisations in France - D'Antilles & D'Ailleurs and in Italy - Tamat and AITR - who develop and promote the cultural heritage of each place through their local communities and our Belgian partners -Groupe One - are experts in mentoring young entrepreneurs in this field.

STAGES OF THE PROGRAM

Mentors guide

A guide for local community mentors will be created in the spring of 2020. It will consist of methodologies and activities that will help the respective mentor to create a strong team centered around the community.

The Walking Tour Course

In the second phase of the program, Karpos and the partners of the program will create a training of 5 modules, each, depending on their specialty. This training will be addressed to 18 youth workers, selected by each organization, who will afterwards apply these practices to vulnerable groups.

The Walking Tour Handbook

The third stage of the program concerns the creation of modern cultural routes in the cities in which each organization operates. The aim of these routes is to highlight parts of modern heritage of each country which are not so well known to tourists and locals.

Website/Platform

The fourth and final stage of the program is the creation of an interactive platform that will host all the previous deliverables. This platform will give us the opportunity to reach a large audience and will ensure the viability of the program.
