URBEX

Urban exploration as educational tool.

URBEX is a 12 months Erasmus + Key Action 2 – Exchange of good practices in the field of youth. The project aims to increase the participation of young people at risk of social exclusion living in five selected neighbourhoods.  It draws on the partners’ experiences in the field of participatory urban methodologies to test innovative exercises and tools in different European urban contexts. The objective is to improve the observatory and exploratory skills of professionals working with youth at risk within the context of strong cooperation and networking between five EU organisations. The project will propose and test solutions to improve the understanding of urban contexts to young people through the use of innovative exploration and gamification tools.

The organisations partners are Bond of Union, Palermo (IT), Dramblys, Albacete (ES), Prostoroz, Ljibljana (SL), Mapping for Change, London (UK) and Tesserae, Berlin.
