Waves of Innovation - 3rd National Tool Fair
13th-14th October 2017
Aġenzija Żgħażagħ Youth Village, Sta Venera

The theme for this year’s tool fair Waves of Innovation shall provide a stimulating environment for innovative pedagogical approaches & practices. The focus of this year’s edition aims to enhance participants’ critical thinking in order to be able to respond to the challenges of the evolving context, in line with the European Commission Youth Priorities for 2018 through innovative and digital youth work approaches.

The aim of the Tool Fair is to promote quality in youth work and support capacity building of youth workers. Taking up this challenge and being proactive in creating this change, EUPA and Agenzija Zghazagh have once again partnered up to ensure a continuous growth and success of the National Tool Fair.

The 3rd National Tool Fair is an opportunity for participants to shape educational and experiential pathways, to run a workshop and to share tools for learning with colleagues, 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.

Send in your application to maria-carmela.borg@gov.mt by Monday 2nd October 2017, end of business day.
