YouNG gets a pizza the action in Italy

29 September 2016

The innovative YouNG project is branching out into Italy.

Our YouNG markets have been running successfully for over 4 years in the UK. Building on this, YouNG is taking their exciting concept and transferring it to a new and unfamiliar context – Rome!

The project has been funded by Erasmus + and will be a unique opportunity for local young people to not only develop their existing entrepreneurship skills but also to sell their homemade wares in markets they haven’t had exposure to before. The shortlisted stallholders have been carefully selected based on their excellent performance, and have all worked on YouNG markets previously, so will relish the chance to showcase their talents in a different culture.

The event will be the culmination of months of hard work and planning by both the YouNG team and many partner organisations such as NGi, Pedal Consulting and CESFoR. The 4 day trip will take place in November, with the itinerary including preparation and a review, giving the young people the opportunity to offer feedback about the event.

If you'd like to keep updated on their Rome trip, follow them on social media (Twitter and Facebook) as they'll be posting videos to give an insight in to their activities.

YouNG have a regularly updated blog and will be posting articles both in the run up and after the event too.
