The place-based approach put forward in EULER addresses those disconnected from the labour market in their role of active citizens and holders of local knowledge. The consortium City Mind(ed)TransitTesseraendvr is deeply convinced that residents from deprived urban areas possess a diverse set of skills, but that the lack of recognition and subsequently advertisement of these talents keeps them unavailable to the labour market. By applying a unique method of mutual learning and online reporting to international partners, the programme provides them with the basic skills, self-confidence and self-esteem to move on to a career in continued education or even a professional occupation.
