Adamastor

Portugal

Adamastor was founded on January 28, 2005 and arises from the desire of a group of young people interested in the integration, help and European cooperation with the ultimate goal of working with young people through a support structure and support placements, learning different languages, training of new professional figures to bring innovation to the region of Viseu and improving the knowledge of the European labor system enhancing multilingualism and intercultural dialogue. In Adamastor we can not perceive the personal and social development without knowing, feeling and living other social and cultural realities of the different countries of the European Union.

 

This line of action, Adamastor is working with European projects, having already enabled hundreds of people in an international experience abroad. Being a part in non-formal education experiences abroad for young, gives them more confidence, inspires them the need to seek new initiatives, foster entrepreneurship and a broader market view. All these actions enrich the business fabric of our region and provide local SME greater potential and ability to internationalize. Taking into account the statutes, we believe that this project will be an asset to allow an exchange of broader experiences pouring the borders of the European Union.

 

We intend thereby fostering cooperation between youth organizations worldwide, with the theme promoting exchange of best practices, but across recognize the local level the potential of rural areas valuing the territories and discovering new form of employment for young. We intend to make this project especially in Local act but thinking Global.
