Window on the World (WOW)

Project Window on the World (WOW), an Erasmus Plus Strategic Partnership Project being implemented from 2017-2017.

WOW aims to strengthen the capacity of organisations working with youth, by developing a strategic approach that empowers youth practitioners to teach young people about, and for young  people to engage with global and international development issues, and become  global citizens. In other words, opening a ‘window on the world’ so young people can see the bigger picture.
