The Aydın Cultural Development Association organized the third transnational meeting of the project “Culture in Move” coordinated by the Creativa Association, financed by the Erasmus+ KA227 Partnerships for Creativity program, through the Spanish National Agency. The representatives of the partner NGOs met in Kuşadası, Turkey, in the second half of June.

Within the scope of the Culture in Move project, which considers that the unemployment problem can be reduced if unemployed and socio-economically disadvantaged people are provided with the necessary social and professional coaching support and focuses on youth unemployment and social disadvantage in general, all partner organizations are preparing a handbook containing the techniques and methods they use in their own trainings. The “Culture in Move” project aims to successfully help young adults with fewer opportunities and other groups at risk of exclusion. 

At the meeting held in Kuşadası all partner countries presented their sections as drafts for the handbook. The agenda of the meeting concerned the dissemination and visibility activities of the project as well, ending with the distribution of certificates and filling out the evaluation questionnaires. Within the scope of the mobility, the Ancient City of Ephesus, the House of Virgin Mary and the charming town of Şirince were visited by the group of colleagues.

The next transnational mobility of the project will take place in Portugal, where the AMBES Pias will host the event of presenting the ready made handbook!
