First steps: The partners will start with conducting comprehensive research activities in order to get an overview of the current state of affairs in the partner countrues as a basis for developing a state-of-the-art interactive learning environment aimed to support educators in increasing their competences and resources to promote media literacy, and critical thinking amongst disadvantaged young adults. The research activities will include desk research, focus groups and interviews and an large online survey.

The EMPROVE team is currently in Germany (April 2018), reviewing the feedback from testing the EMPROVE innovative platform in six EU countries … the official public launch of the platform is approaching!
The platform offers various missions to support women survivors of domestic violence to empower them by supporting them in reflecting on their strenghts and values. The platform is based on the theory of gamification and uses gamified elements aimed to engage the DV survivors in a long-term journey of empowerment. The platform combines solving different online or live missions and achievements, in addition to the face-to-face sessions with a counsellor, using also the power of the own self-confidence.
If you want to try out the platform, please contact the EMPROVE team at email@example.com

In early May the VALLEY (Validation System in Lifelong Learning Experiences of Youth Volunteering) partners came together in Göttingen to set up the plan for putting the goals of VALLEY into practice. The first steps focus on assessing the field of volunteering opportunities for youths and the practices in terms of validation of competences that young people acquire during their volunteering experiences. For this purpose an online survey will be launched in the middle of June that addresses young volunteers as well as volunteering organisations to ask for their experiences and needs. The survey is backed by an extensive internet research to deepen the findings. Based on these research results the VALLEY team will customise the offers that are to be developed in the coming two years.
