Project Summary

Project Constellation is 20 months strategic partnership for youth in field of innovation. It involves 5 partner organizations from 3 European countries – Latvia, Slovenia and Croatia.
The context of the Project Constellation is high number of young people who experience NEET situation in EU member countries. In 2016, more than 6,3 million young people (aged 15-24 years) were NEETs in the EU. In 2011 the direct economic loss across the EU to the high proportion of NEETs was estimated at 153 billion eur or 1,2% of EU’s gross domestic product. After the crise of Covid 19 the number of young people in NEET situation could increase even more significatly.

– raising awareness of marginalized youth, especially, youngsters in NEET situation among project target groups;
– setting a cross-sectorial cooperation between non-formal and formal education;
– carring out a research on patterns among youth who experience NEET situation;
