Between the 16th and 20th of October, the Tower/Paço do Castelo de Évora Monte was the stage for an ERASMUS+ mobility event in which more than two dozen technicians working with young people from 7 European countries participated: Portugal, Germany, Slovakia, Croatia, Romania, Bulgaria and Ukraine.
This event, called YouthWorkers4Peace, was promoted by the European Network of Places of Peace/ENPP, based on an application submitted by this Association and which was approved and financed by the Portuguese National Agency ERASMUS+/Juventude em Ação .
Participants in this event will develop a series of collective activities aimed at deepening the consequences of the Peace Treaties in Europe, promoting a Culture of Peace among young people and increasing their involvement with the objectives and initiatives of the promoting Association. Participants in this event took advantage of their stay in Évora Monte to develop bonds of friendship, cooperation and interrelationships with each other, as well as making various contacts with the local population and the institutions of Évora Monte and Estremoz, having been received at the Municipality of Estremoz by its President, Prof. José Daniel Sadio and in the Parish Council of Évora Monte, by its President, Arch. Antonio Serrano. Participants in this event also visited the Elementary School and Kindergarten of Évora Monte and the Lar da Santa Casa da Misericórdia.
It is expected that this type of mobility event will be repeated in the coming years in other places in Europe, members of ENPP, based on an Accreditation application already submitted by this Association, based in Évora Monte, to the National Agency responsible for the ERASMUS+ program.
Through another application promoted by the ENPP and also approved by the National Agency ERASMUS+/Youth in action, more than forty young people between the ages of 16 and 25 from 6 European countries will participate in a similar event that will take place in the near future, also at the Tower/ Palace of Évora Monte.
