Idea Sketch | Proposal


Idea pitch

I'm depressed. I'm jobless. - I'm a star. Four employers asked me to start an apprenticeship in their company.

Where will your idea take place?

Landshut, area of Munich, Germany, Saintiago de Compostela, Spain

Why does Europe need your idea?

Europe creates a lot of very good programs. Europe also connects people in events like youth exchanges. We add a new quality ("value") of getting to known in a short time - by interviewing - and a new quality of sustainibility between the participants - by the topic youth unemployment and the great differences between the German and Spanish UNemployment situation.

Yes, the idea can be transferred. We used the method of interviews in two political projects with Tunisia. With this project we like to transfer it to a new topic (youth employment) and to an European Country.

The method can also be transferred to other sectors and organisations.

What is your impact?

A year after the project Mario is a colleague of Sandra. During the project Sandra studied foreign language correspondent, she was hired in an export-import company in Munich. There was a vacancy in the unit which works with Spain. Now Mario makes a training in "Sandra's" company. Mario get funds from the program Mobi-por-EU.

a year after the project Carla works as an au-pair. She got known to Tobias during the project. Tobias' neighbours were looking for an au-pair girl. Carla never wanted to work as an au-pair, but Tobias told her that the familiy is really likeable. "You fit really in this family. Come on." Well, Carla visited an au-pair matching organisation during the project in Munich. Why not. And the family read Carla's interview in the brochure.

How do you get there?

There will be two meetings of eight days. One in Madrid or Santiago de Compostela, March 2016, and one next to Munich, June 2016. We cooperate with experienced partners in Spain. In Germany the participants will be accomodated in a hostel for trainees. We will organise meetings with decisionmakers including politicians for the interviews and excursions to companies and organisations which are related to employment.
