Enter! 2009 - 2012
The first phase of the Enter! project (2009 - 2012) was part of the work priority on social cohesion and inclusion of young people. In 2009 - 2012 the project aimed at developing youth policy responses to exclusion, discrimination and violence affecting young people in multicultural disadvantaged neighbourhoods.
This project comprised several activities. The core element of this project was a two-year course Enter! - Long term training course on Access to Social Rights for Young People from Disadvantaged Neighbourhoods.
Other actvities part of the Enter! in 2009 - 2012 project were: Consultative Meeting on Youth Information and Counselling (June 2010), Seminar on Gender Equality in Youth Projects (June 2010), Expert Seminar on New Ways of Participation in Multicultural Youth Work (June 2010), Joint seminar on Youth Policy Approaches (December 2010) , Youth Congress (2011), and Project Evaluation and Follow-up seminar (2012).
In September 2011, the youth sector organised the Enter! youth meeting, an international three-day meeting gathering some 180 young people, youth workers, youth researchers, policy makers and representatives of the project partners with the aim to provide them with the opportunity and the space to voice their opinions, and share their experiences about access to social rights in Europe as a contribution to the development of youth policies in the Council of Europe.
