When and Where?
InnovateMeOut (October/November, 2021 – exact date to be confirmed later) in Hungary
The group of volunteers will be involved in the ‘Innovation Week’ event. The event will be a new initiative organised in collaboration with different partners and will involve a
massive number of people from all over Hungary, Western Balkan, Eastern partnership countries and the EU.
The activity in which volunteers will be involved is going to be high-quality, innovative, human-centred, and they will be built around a dynamic, youth-focused response to nowadays societal challenges.
We will organise five different events in three cities of Hungary, in Szeged, Győr and Budapest. We expect over 100 participants in every event. This means that
volunteers will have several tasks on every event, depending on the needs of the competitions/ conferences/ panel discussions
etc. For example, at Cyber Security (CyexCamp), we will have different locations for different activities, where volunteers will be shared based on their learning goals and tasks.
Since the main topic of the activities is about entrepreneurship, social entrepreneurship, startups and business, the volunteers will become total insiders. Their mindset and
competencies will develop faster; these volunteers will support our and the local partners’ activities from the preparation phase, through the realisation till the dissemination.
They will manage small activities, and we will provide space for personal idea realisation (ex: if volunteers want to hold a yoga session in the breaks, they will be supported in looking for the location, mats, music, etc.).
By this, we want to reinforce skills and competencies’ development of the volunteers and to increase self-empowerment and self-esteem.
The event series provides excellent networking opportunities for all parties and supports better awareness of the European project and EU common values.
We have more, detailed info only about the separate events, on our webpage, under INNOVATION.
The volunteers will organise some “promotional spots” during the events. These “promotional spots” will be dedicated to the promotion of the ESC and Erasmus+ activities, and we plan to have a little stand or an information banquet where volunteers will introduce the programmes and explain what are the activities that can be carried out, it’s objectives and impacts. Moreover, they will prepare handicraft materials to be shared with the public, little gadgets or information materials using their creativity and sense of entrepreneurship to involve and intrigue young people to listen to their presentations about the ESC and E+
The accommodation costs are covered. It will be a mobile project, the volunteers will be always on the move. One event will take from 2 to 4 days, excluding travel days and preparation. The team of MeOut will travel together with the mentors and volunteers from venue to venue to prepare, organise, close the events. We will have free days not at weekends but between the activities. Every event will be followed by the other one, during the events will dine with other participants. The breakfast will be arranged in the accommodation and volunteers will receive their pocket money for dinner and lunch for the days off.
