About

Evento NEF Bruselas 2022
The annual New Education Forum Brussels in January 2022 will give a chance of presenting the effects of Outdoor Learning applied to youth activation thanks to the “From Outdoors to Labour Market” (FOLM) project. Based on the great results of FOLM project (80% ratio of success among 1.000 youth), the Center for Innovative Education and its partners want to open a wider discussion about Outdoor Learning.

This year we will focus on:
1
how to apply Outdoor Learning to VET in a formal education (including upskilling and reskilling),
2
how we can strengthen the labour market thanks to Outdoor Learning, and
3
what skills European Union employers are searching for in the potential employees.

The story of success – Outdoor learning as an effective way to activate youth.
The FOLM project has brought very good news: most of FOLM beneficiaries have successfully returned to the labour market or studies. How have we managed to motivate young people? What expectations the participants had and what challenges they met at the FOLM journey? How can we implement this model in other regions?

Diagnosis: transversal competences of youth and labour market needs.
We have a lack of workers all over Europe and a whole generation in countries such as Spain, Poland or Italy is lost because of overqualification. What solutions can we expect from politicians and how they meet the expectations of the employers?

Challenges for the future. How to increase the implementation of Outdoor Learning in formal education
Nowadays employers search for employees with adaptive capacity, who are proactive, with ease to work in teams, solve problems and think creatively. Every day more institutions switch to work within a structure based on projects instead of hierarchies. Creating transversal, cognitive teams is essential if we are to adapt to the needs of today's societies. Outdoor learning is one of the most effective methods to strengthen transversal competencies and self-development. How can we increase the presence of Outdoor Learning at the EU level? Which kind of partnerships are required to do so?
