Tool Fair XI will focus on "Tools for Solidarity and Inclusion" through innovative youth work approaches to reach out and support young people at risk of marginalisation and social exclusion, including young people with a migrant or refugee background.
Tool Fair XI - #Readyfortheroad shall provide a stimulating and proactive environment in which participants working with and for young people can interact and discuss, display and exchange effective non-formal educational and youth work tools and practices in a cross-sectoral context.
The 11th edition of Tool Fair XI shall take place in Malta. The theme aims to address "Tools for Solidarity and Inclusion", through innovative youth work approaches. Tool Fair XI shall focus on displaying and promoting specially developed non-formal learning tools for reaching out to and supporting young people at risk of marginalisation and social exclusion - including NEETs, young people with a migrant or refugee background - in acquiring the necessary skills and competences that can help promote their active participation in society and the workplace.
Participating in the Tool Fair XI is an opportunity for participants to shape educational and experiential pathways, to run a workshop and to share tools for learning with colleagues in an international context, as well as to participate in workshops conducted by their peers. Beyond merely experiencing a wide variety of tools for learning, the Tool Fair aims to provide a space to reflect on tools, give and receive feedback, pave the way for their transferability and further development – thus one is ready for the road.
This way, the Tool Fair XI aims to contribute not only to the learning outcomes of each individual participant but also to the quality of tools for learning and learning process at European level, complementing the SALTO-YOUTH Toolbox for Training and Youth Work (www.salto-youth.net/toolbox) and various publications on educational tools, in coherence with the European Training Strategy in the field of Youth (www.salto-youth.net/trainingstrategy).

- To contribute to the educational and experiential pathway of each participant, particularly in relation to the competences of creating and using such tools

- The provision of insights into current contexts and policy developments
