The main objective of the WEEELABS project is the creation of a strategic partnership between organizations with experience in the social field, for working and learning together exploring new opportunities for employability of youth in a situation or at serious risk of exclusion, through:

  • the development of a non-formal education methodology adapted from technological innovation contexts (FabLab – Fabrication Laboratories) and based on the principle “learning by doing” to provide these youngsters with socio-occupational / a pre-employment skills.
  • the analyses of the reuse of waste electrical and electronic equipment as a niche for generating social enterprises or social intra-entrepreneurial initiatives.
