Aims and objectives

• to explore the concept of “transformational storytelling”, how to use storytelling as tool for innovation to change and self-development;

• to develop an action plan for participants to engage their youth in their organisation’s context as well as the regional and European level;
• to implement the lessons learned and action plans in the partner organisations and virtually share and evaluate the activities organised.
