UCE LAB Description
Urban Civic Education LAB is a 24-month strategic partnership involving 3 NGOs from Austria, Italy and Germany. The partners are experienced in working with young people aimed to promote social entrepreneurship of NEETs in order to foster transition to autonomy and employability/entrepreneurial engagement.
The aim of the UCE LAB and its training is to impart skills in the areas of social entrepreneurship that relate to social issues in urban areas. Young people get the chance to implement innovative ideas based on best practices and to create a social surplus for their local society.
In the first training week you will gain knowledge and insight on how to put ideas into action and start your own project. The UCE LAB is created to inspire you and guide you on your journey to implementing your ideas.
The training is therefore a way to transfer knowledge to young people as support for the implementation of their plans for the design of public spaces.
