The first in-person meeting within the yEUcycling project was done, gathering representatives of partners and methodology experts with a goal to work on creating methodological approach that will ensure development of the social activism based on cycling among young people.
The meeting started with a detailed analysis of the findings of research on the capacities of cycling clubs and youth organizations to integrate cycling-based social activism into their work. Based on these findings and through trans-sectoral exchange of knowledge, skills, experiences and insights among meeting participants, a set of methodologies, together with guidelines and resources necessary for their implementation, was developed. These innovative methodologies will form a backbone of the upcoming yEUcycling capacity building training within which we will equip youth workers and sports clubs’ staff to apply them as tools for boosting cycling-based social activism.
The project yEUcycling is co-funded by the European Union.
