The PEC Project (Podcast Employ yourself in Culture) is an Erasmus+ KA220- Cooperation partnership in youth.

The project aims to produce innovative content related to the employability and entrepreneurship of young people in the cultural sector, to achieve 3 specific objectives:

1 → Promotion of the employability of young people in the cultural sector.

2 → Promotion of entrepreneurship of young people in the cultural sector.

3 → Dissemination of European cultural heritage among young people in the participating countries.

Context

The crise due to COVID-19 throughout Europe has not only been a health one. It also heavily affected the economic, social, educational, and cultural sectors. The effects of the restrictions generated by the pandemic are clear in the educational and cultural fields of the partner countries (Spain, Italy, Greece, and Croatia). Also, the unemployment rate is significantly increased and none of the partner countries is among the top 30 most favorable countries for entrepreneurship.

The Podcast Employ Yourself in Culture (PEC) project aims to promote the cultural sector, by making it more attractive to young people, presenting it as a source of opportunity. The project results will help to promote the employability of young people in the cultural sector. In the context of the major crisis due to Covid-19, this project supports the cultural sector, creating more interest in it and promoting the importance of European cultural heritage.
