PROJECT MANAGEMENT

We are ready to co-design participatory projects with impact and systemic approach to our solutions

group

How can you implement projects that respond effectively to the society’s needs, engage citizens in a participatory way and contribute to systemic change? Every phase of a project has to be carefully designed, especially when resources are limited.

We have designed and coordinated a large number of projects that bring positive social change. From the transformation of schoolyards into accessible community spaces, to the interactive awareness raising for citizens regarding issues of sustainable mobility.

WE HAVE COLLABORATED WITH 80+ INSTITUTIONS, COMPANIES AND NGOs

WHAT DOES PROJECT MANAGEMENT MEAN FOR US?

1. INITATION

We always begin from the needs of the user, the resident, the public (user research). We involve all the stakeholders, professionals and citizens (participatory design). We identify the vision, the goals and the best approach (vision-oriented milestones) and we create a healthy framework of cooperation between Youthnest and the partner organization, in order to train its people in our methodologies.

2. PLANNING

We select digital project management tools (Asana, Miro, Slack etc.) to capture all aspects of a project. Timeline, roles, budget, partners’ contacts, graphics, communication plan are all digitally recorded so that they can be used even after the completion of a project.

3. EXECUTION

We implement projects efficiently, fast and in a participatory way. We put special emphasis on recording quantitative and qualitative outcomes. In this way, the project can be promoted and used as an inspiring case study. During the implementation of a project, we welcome user feedback as we look to improve our next initiatives.

4. CLOSING

A holistic approach requires a professional closure that includes reports on the project’s quantitative and qualitative results, feedback meetings of the working group, promotion of the results to the community and to each interested party, and proper archiving of all project information.

EXAMPLES OF PROJECTS WE CREATED/IMPROVED

Park(ing) - We plan the road together again

Together with the Department of Development of Urban Thessaloniki, we sought the most effective way to promote the results of the REMEDIO Interreg program to society (impact dissemination)  by implementing 2 “Park(ing) Day” together with the Municipality of Thessaloniki and the Municipality of Kalamaria.

Community Pop-Up in 6 neighbourhoods of Thessaloniki

The needs of 6 schools at the center of the neighborhood. A neighborhood mapping action around a school, a game to record the needs of the residents and an afternoon in the courtyard of the public school in order for the residents to become “Ambassadors of their neighborhood”.

Sustainable movement and green cities in “Voltaro”

A landmark action of the Region of Central Macedonia (Counter-Region of Development and Environment) for sustainable travel in Greek cities. As of 2017, more than 50 institutions, companies and educational institutions as well as 3500+ citizens are actively participating.

“From my collaboration with Youthnest, I single out their professionalism and their passion. Our project in Beirut was a great motivation for us. It has been extremely important to work with an organization that not only understands the value of social innovation in our world today, but it also has the ability to translate it into meaningful experiences for young people.”
