Young Social Makers is an Erasmus+ project with partners from across Europe coming together to bridge the gap between VET teaching, makers culture and our social responsibility towards fellow citizens with special needs. By working together to develop practical tools we hope to create a more social and hands-on Europe!
During the two-year project, organisations and colleges from Spain, Cyprus, Italy and the Netherlands will develop a learning programme for VET students, and give them the skills to design and prototype social objects which address the needs of people with special needs, using digital tools and machinery such as 3D printing, laser cutting, rapid prototyping and design thinking.
Are you a problem-solver?
During the course of the YSM project there will be a number of events, training activities, workshops and meetings, coinciding with key moments in the project’s development. Keep up with the latest news via the Blog page on this website and our Facebook page!
