Mindfullnes about

“Learning mindfulness to develop well-being among young Europeans” arises from the concern that suicide is the third leading cause of death in children and young people be-tween 10 and 24 years of age, with depression being the leading cause of suicide. In this context, the project seeks to make youth workers aware of what is mindfulness and how they can implement it in their work with young people, so that they have both cognitive and emotional tools to face the challenges of life and not suffering from depression, abuse of substances, radicalisation or commit suicide.

In this sense, the project pursues the following objectives:

1. Provide youth workers with the necessary skills, both theoretical and practical, so that they can use both mindfulness (in general) and their tools and techniques (in particular) to promote a state of cognitive and emotional wellbeing among among young people with fewer opportunities and at secondary level.

2. Provide a space where youth workers can exchange good practices with a view to plan-ning strategies that, from mindfulness, can empower young Europeans (with fewer oppor-tunities and at secondary level.) and successfully overcome the various personal, social and work obstacles/difficulties that they will face.

To achieve this, the project has three phases: preparation phase, training course and fol-low-up phase. Preparation and follow-up phases will be done in a virtual way, through educational pills. The training course, on the other hand, will be held in Salamanca (Spain). The three phases of the project will be implemented through non-formal educa-tion, experience-based learning and YouthPass. This will enable youth workers to acquire all the necessary skills to implement their own actions to promote a state of well-being among young Europeans (especially at secondary level and with fewer opportunities).
