Main project results:

Increase of support to young people and contribution to better education and better social environment through equal accessibility of ICT services for young people in the Carinthia region to achieve a greater number of young people who are active and have access to a quality support environment.

Project summary:

Carinthia region is a lagging region characterised by lower level of development compared to Slovenia’s average, declining population and faster ageing of the population. Young people are leaving the region due to lack of suitable jobs, insecure (precarious) employment, poorer quality of life and low accessibility of services compared to urban centers and neighboring cross-border regions. The project aims to establish a support environment network for young people in the Carinthia region. The network provides newly designed services (info points or job stations, virtual youth incubator of Carinthia, model of active participation of young people) and upgraded services (active young people – skills for life and career) which help establish conditions for a quality life in the region with the goal of reducing brain drain or securing better future for young people in the region. The overarching goal follows the Development Strategy of Slovenia 2030 which focuses on the quality of life. From an individual’s point of view, the latter reflects in having a good job and good education opportunities as well as opportunities to be creative, the possibility to lead a dignified, safe and active life, and the possibility to participate in democratic decision-making and co-management of society.
