Creativity and culture will be the background for building and redefining European identity and integration.Taking advantage of this through the promotion of cultural heritage and youth entrepreneurship, it will contribute to a better understanding of the common past of European citizens to preserve European cultural heritage. Our project aims to provide a comprehensive and youth-centered response at the European level to intertwined issues related to youth unemployment and European common heritage.
This kind of activities will be part of the program:
Social and cultural entrepreneurship, sustainability, leadership, youth unemployment, digital skills, informal and non-formal education methods and tools.

ACCOMODATION AND VENUE
Turkey offers a wealth of destination varieties to travellers: From the dome-and-minaret filled skyline of Istanbul to the Roman ruins along the western and southern coast, from heavily indented coastline against a mountainous backdrop of Lycia and wide and sunny beaches of Pamphylia to cold and snowy mountains of the East, from verdant misty mountains of Eastern Black Sea to wide steppe landscapes of Central Anatolia, there is something for every single one’s taste.
The westerly region of Turkey’s Mediterranean coastline is especially popular. There are abundance of beach kinds such as rocky, sandy beaches as well as pebbly beaches especially around the Konyaalti Bay. With a particularly diverse landscape, it is actually quite feasible to enjoy a morning swim, and then head to the Taurus Mountains for a spot of skiing in the afternoon at the neighbouring resort of Davras. Antalya’s historical Old Town area is known as Kaleici. It offers beautiful harbour views and is surrounded by medieval fortified walls, which date back before both the Roman and Byzantine periods and have been restored many times. Currently it is the fastest growing city in Turkey. Besides, Antalya enjoys an idyllic climate for a good deal of the year. The climate in Antalya is warm and temperate. The winter months are also sunny most of the time. However it is also rainy and the rain are so dense in winter times. In Antalya tap water is drinkable. Besides, Antalya is very safe to visit, with a low crime rate and and high safe index. Interesting fact about Antalya: Around 300 days of the year are sunny, the sea temperature never goes below 15°C and in the summer is around 28°C.
Kultur & Art Initiative e.V. was established in 2002 and is an intercultural and intergenerational nonprofit association with members from different nations, age groups and with different careers who have work experience in youth, non-formal education and media education for many years. Kultur & Art Initiative e.V. works also in the fields of youth policy and youth work development.
HOW TO APPLY?
The Erasmus+ is the EU programme to support education, training, youth and sports in Europe. Its budget of €14.7 billion will provide opportunities for over 4 million Europeans to study, train, and gain experience abroad. This training course is targeted at youth workers and youth leaders (active members of organizations, communities who work with young people and are involved in activities carried out by sending organizations). Ideally, participants should be in a position of daily working with youngsters. It is not a must to be a full active member of the sending
organization as the youth workers may come from the community youth centers or local schools and institutions of partner organizations.
