For more information what skills and competences each activity addresses, please refer to the activity descriptions.

Visual identity and heritage

Visual identity and heritage entails the management and presentation of visual elements that reflect the essence and historical significance and context of a particular culture or individual. This involves designing logos, collages, imagery, and digital media that communicate the cultural identity and values, while preserving and celebrating its heritage. Skills and competences in cultural sensitivity, historical and cultural research, graphic design, branding, and creative communication are vital in this domain.

Soft skills

Soft skills are interpersonal attributes like leadership, organisation, and communication, crucial for effective interaction and collaboration in various contexts. They complement technical skills and are essential for personal and professional success, fostering positive work environments, innovation, and achieving organisational goals. Soft skills are increasingly valued for their role in building relationships, resolving conflicts, and adapting to change, highlighting their importance in today’s dynamic and interconnected world. Additionally, soft skills contribute to personal growth, enabling individuals to communicate effectively, collaborate harmoniously, and navigate diverse teams with confidence and adaptability.

Upcycling and circular lifestyle

Embracing upcycling and adopting a circular lifestyle holds significant importance in today’s world, where sustainability and environmental consciousness are paramount. Upcycling involves transforming old or discarded materials into new, useful items, reducing waste and minimising the consumption of new resources. This practice not only helps mitigate the environmental impact of waste but also encourages creativity, resourcefulness, and innovation. Skills such as creativity, craftsmanship, problem-solving, and a commitment to sustainability are crucial for successful upcycling and embracing a circular lifestyle. By embracing these practices, individuals contribute to a more sustainable future while promoting a culture of resourcefulness and responsible consumption.
