We will celebrate the end of our final phase of the Social Activation Programme with the 2nd Social Activation Festival.

The social activation programmes launched in 2017 and are now coming to an end after almost six years. They were created in response to the needs of the long-term unemployed, with the aim that, with the support of the programme, participants would acquire additional skills, information and competences, become actively involved in and connected to their wider local environment, improve their psychosocial health, become more motivated and confident and focused on actively approaching the labour market. Social activation programmes are implemented by various stakeholders across Slovenia. Funding is provided by the budget of the Republic of Slovenia and partly by the European Union through the European Social Fund. We have reached the final phase of the programme and the implementing organizations are currently working with the last group of participants. We will mark the end of our final phase of the programme with the 2nd Social Activation Festival with partners from all across Slovenia. The Festival has been developed with the support of the mentoring of the programme’s practitioners.
