- Develop creative-thinking skills;
- Develop solution-finding skills;
- Develop pitches and presentations skills;
- Team-working skills.
Profile of the Participants: The call is open to all young people aged 16-30 from anywhere in Europe. Participants who already have a team can apply all together. If not, they can apply individually and teams will be made at the start of the event. Special skills are not needed, just an open mind and team-spirit.
