Training Course: No Hate

Dates: 10-18 February 2018

Venue: Yerevan, Armenia

Eligible are 28 participants coming from: Armenia, Belarus, Georgia, Germany, Luxembourg, Poland, Russian Federation, Turkey, Ukraine, United Kingdom

Application deadline: 28th December 2017

A project “No hate” is a long-term project aiming at combating with the hate speech online and to promote no hate speech movement among young people.


The internet has changed the types and possibilities of human interaction. It has given us the possibility, in theory, to communicate with almost any other person in the world; it has even made it possible, in theory, for one thought in a back room in a small and unknown corner of the world to be picked up by every other person!

Everyone with access to the internet is now both publisher and public speaker. Few, it seems, can interfere with what we want to say. This is a novelty that few would want reversed, but it should not surprise us that the ever-expanding world of online interaction has also come to reflect and feed back into many of the difficulties that human beings have historically encountered in their ‘real’ existence.

Intolerance and ‘hate’ have been a feature of human society almost since time began. A number of studies have identified an increase in these attitudes over recent years. The problem is that if there is less tolerance of differences, and if the constraints on that intolerance are not watched, then intolerance – and hate – will find expression, both in the things that people do and in the things, they say.

The internet has opened up new ways of saying things, and it has opened up new avenues to say them to more people. The constraints, however, on what we can say online are far fewer than those which exist off-line: we can say things over the Internet that we would not dare to say in public in the ‘real’ world. If hate speech offline is a problem that societies have recognized, and found the need to address, is online hate speech something that we can ignore? Of course not.

Young people are already suffering from online hate speech:
• Across Europe, 6% of 9 to 16-year-old Internet users reported having been bullied online, and 3% confessed to having bullied others.
• 16% of young Internet users in Europe say they have posted comments on the Internet that were hateful towards a person or group of people.
• 78% of the respondents of an online survey stated they had encountered hate speech online on a regular basis. The three most recurrent targets of hate speech were: LGBT people (70%), Muslims including refugees and migrants of Muslim origin (60%) and women.

The problem is huge, and it becomes bigger and bigger especially in nowadays when we all face economic breakdown and unemployment as result, huge refugee wave, raise of extremism and terrorism etc. All those challenges contributes to spreading hate speech online, as young people are in the situation of ambiguity and frustration.

In 2012, Advisory Council on Youth of Council of Europe started the No Hate Speech Movement, the campaign that aimed to combat the hate speech online in all its forms, and with this “No hate” project we want to contribute to making internet a safer place for young people and to prevent human rights violation online.

The issues that will be addressed by competences developed during the project are:
• Decrease the level of aggression and intolerance online through civil society organisations/youth workers.
• Perception of phenomena of hate speech and its influence on young people’s lives.
• Subjective opinion, memory and bias.
• Human rights online
• Peace-building
• Internet literacy
• Freedom of speech
• Promoting intercultural dialogue
• Preventing radicalization of young people

A project “No hate” is a long-term project aiming at combating with the hate speech online and to promote no hate speech movement among young people.

The project contains two elements:
1. Youth Exchange in Luxembourg from 8th till 17th of December 2017;
2. Training course “No Hate” in Yerevan, Armenia from 10th to 18th of February 2018

Training course “No Hate” for youth workers teachers and trainers aiming to equip them with knowledge and skills on how to tackle the topic of hate speech with young people through non-formal education. The training will take place in Yerevan, Armenia from 10th to 18th of February 2018.

A kind of Magic! is a long-term Erasmus+ project for youth workers and youth leaders working with different diversity groups and marginalised youth.

It consists of 2 residential training courses (TC) and a coaching and practice phase between.

What is the “Magic”? 
We see diversity not as a challenge, but as a source for inspiration!
Our definition of “Magic”: the art of creating special, valued experiences and relationships with and for young people celebrating in all their forms uniqueness, talent and diversity.

We believe that something magical happens, whenever one’s talents and abilities are put into service so that other people can benefit from them.

This is all the more true in the dynamic world we live in today. Many forms of “magic” are made possible by science, technology, connections and inspiration. When people can envision their dreams, understand clearly what is the gift they have and want to share with the world, amazing things can happen!

We want to support youth workers and young people in their communities, so that more people can discover THEIR magic and have a fulfilling and successful path in life.

 Can I Apply? Yes! if

– you are willing to deliver an educational activity on a local level
– you are ready to get inspired and motivated for your work :)

Training Course: Making Movies Matter

Dates: 1-11 February 2018

Venue: Newcastle Upon Tyne, United Kingdom

Eligible are 21 participants coming from: Estonia, FYROM, France, Italy, Greece, Portugal, Slovak Republic, United Kingdom

Application deadline: 14th December 2017

Main aim of this project is to equip youth workers with competencies necessary for using movie-making as a methodology.


The TC “Training Course – Making Movies Matter” aims to equip youth workers with competencies necessary for using movie-making as a methodology in bringing the common fundamental values of our society closer to hard to reach young people and young people not involved in civic and non-formal education.

Based on our previous experiences, we believe that movies can make a difference when working with those youth, and we want to help more organizations and youth workers to be effective at it.

Films are by default thought to be more appealing to young people compared to other media and organizations use them for introducing young people with ideas, concepts and values that do not appear exciting to most of them.

However, youth workers often lack the skills needed to produce films that will look genuine and will attract and keep the attention of young people – especially ones that are generally not involved in non-formal education, and thus more difficult to reach.

Thus, such films often reach only a limited number of young people who are already involved, and who can be also impacted using other methods.

We are sure that youth workers or even educated youth are able to change the situation. We want to act and bring positive changes in our societies taking a special focus on media.

We intend to bring everyone messages for gender equity and equality through digital images. We intend to invite youth workers and educators to use these tools in their future work.

This project is financed by the Erasmus+ Youth in Action Programme.

Training Course Refugees in Europe: Educational Approaches to deal with Causes of Flights, Antiracism and Opportunities of Inclusion.

Dates: 3-12 February 2018

Venue: Berlin, Germany

Eligible are 34 participants coming from: Finland, Germany, Greece, Italy, Netherlands, Portugal, Romania

Application deadline: 10th January 2018

Our ten-day-training about “Refugees in Europe: Educational approaches to deal with causes of flights, anti-racism and opportunities of inclusion” will take place in Berlin from 03.02.-12.02.2018.


Our ten-day-training about “Refugees in Europe: Educational approaches to deal with causes of flights, anti-racism and opportunities of inclusion” will take place in Berlin from 03.02.-12.02.2018.

We expect trainees from Finland, Portugal, Germany, Italy, Romania, the Netherlands and Greece who work with youth and young adults. Moreover, our specific goal is to involve youth workers who have own migration and/or refugee experience and trainees with fewer opportunities due to economical, social and cultural obstacles.

The participants will learn, try out, discuss and evaluate a large variety of non-formal pedagogical approaches to deal with (causes of) flights, inclusion, anti-racist education, stereotypes, conflict management and trans-cultural communication. The training involves activities such as doing excursions and guided tours, work with creative and artistic methods and sharing knowledge and experiences.

The activities in the program have the common factor of qualifying the trainees within the context of intercultural learning and stimulating them to develop and adopt new skills concerning the topics of flights and inclusion of refugees.

The training promotes pedagogical approaches in dealing with challenges and opportunities in multicultural and pluralistic societies and empowers the participants to work on reflective competences and tools for social change.

Thus the participants will be able to use their newly acquired expertise in their work with youth and young adults and share and multiply what they have learned with fellow youth workers

The language of communication during the training will be in English.

ATTENTION: Last call for volunteers!

European Voluntary Service provides to young volunteers a unique opportunity to live in a foreign country and collaborate with a fair cause, a personal and professional growth experience free of charge.


To begin with, thank you for your interest and taking into consideration to come to Croatia, do your EVS here and give your contribution to this Project and rural development. Herewith, we kindly would like to give you some basic information about our way of living.

This ”call for applicants” serves as a means to provide you with valuable insights and information prior deciding to come to Latinovac, Croatia.

The overall objective of the project is to create a sustainable community with all its diversity, to develop rural areas and to improve the quality of life of local people.

Specific objectives:
– To develop the knowledge of permaculture in theory and practice
– To educate local people how to treat their waste in the most Eco-friendly way
– To spread and share knowledge about permaculture and sustainability and raise ecological awareness using theoretical and practical workshops
– To organize events for local people and to improve their quality of life
– To clean up properties after winter and prepare them for spring / summer season
– To empower young people to use their opportunities participating in mobility projects and doing voluntary work
– To introduce work of Eko Centar Latinovac to wider community and inform people how to be more active and involved in community development
– To support solidarity and community spirit, intergenerational and intercultural exchange and mutual understanding through non-formal activities in local community (decrease prejudices)
– To develop rural paths for hiking / cycling (to support rural and sustainable development of the community, to promote active way of living and healthy life styles)
– To promote European values (like youth activism, professional growth etc)

Specific Activities:
– Promotion and education of permaculture
– Help in the community
– Promotion of mobility
– Promotion and education of recycling

– Spring welcoming festival
– Healthy food education
– Intercultural exchange

All activities will be based upon an educational and practical part, responding to the principle of lifelong learning. The goal our organization pursues is to contribute to the community development as such, connect and network with local people, attempting to create possibilities for better life and future, providing higher quality of living for both generations.

Examples to achieve this are for instance different programs, touristic offers, social and small entrepreneurship and sustainable living education.

Latinovac is one of the smallest villages in Croatia, located in Easter part. It is part of the municipality of Čaglin with approximately 60 inhabitants. This municipality is on the eastern part of the county of Pozesko-slavonska. What is striking however is a constant decrease of local population from 312 inhabitants in 1961 to currently 60 in 2015.

This area is characterized by outstanding beautiful nature reserve and protected areas. The area illustrates enormous potential for development. As the number of inhabitants already indicates, Latinovac is a very little village and “somewhere in the middle of nowhere”. We don’t have lighting on the streets; there are no shops or anything similar in our lovely village. The closest shop is in Čaglin, approximately 3km distance reachable by walking. However, there are two mini mobile shops passing through Latinovac twice a day providing basic products.

The major challenges that our village is facing are:
– The abandonment and extinction of the village leading to declining population
– Low economic activity causing young people to move away and search for better career and educational possibilities out of Latinovac
– Passivity among the younger and older generations

If you agree to come and do your EV here, you should be open minded towards your hosting country and culture. Things are not better, worse, right o wrong, things are just done differently.

Volunteers are going to live in the village Latinovac, being the Eko Centar Latinovac part of it. Volunteers will be hosted in the village and live together with villagers in their houses. These are valuable experiences; the accommodation is simple and not exclusive. This means that you should be willing to share room, toilet and bathroom with other volunteers.

Simple accommodation means that you will be provided with bed, pillow, sheets, duvets and blankets, furniture heating and warm water. Upon you arrival we will arrange your sleeping place and provide you with the points mentioned above.
If you wish, you can bring your sleeping bag or your favorite pillow.

Working time
Volunteers are expected to work 5 days per week and 6 hours per day according to the EVS Charter, having 2 free consecutive days.

Volunteer’s profile
Volunteers should be interested in environment, sustainable development, permaculture, cultural differences, living in rural area.
As well, they should be creative, communicative, open minded about differences, willing to live in rural area and to share knowledge and information about their culture and their country. Team players, with community spirit, active participants, adaptable and willing to work on promotion of mobility and the project in social media.
To have a successful EVS it is important that volunteers have self-initiative in order to develop their personal projects and have a real impact.

Training Course ‘Ups & Downs’ – supporting emotional well-being of EVS volunteers

Dates: 18-23 March 2018

Venue: Estonia

Eligible are 24 participants coming from: Belgium – FR, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, FYROM, Greece, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain

Application deadline: 10th January 2018

The training course will guide the participants towards better quality in supporting EVS volunteers´ emotional well-being and understanding of the field of mental health and its importance for everyone.


European Voluntary Service (EVS) is an enriching experience, helping young people to develop their personal qualities and enabling them to change their lives.

On the other side, EVS might be a very challenging experience, including tough days, discomfort and stresses, which might result in psychological difficulties. In order to support volunteers in their personal growth, we notice, that there is a need for the basics of the mental health and building capacity to support volunteers in their emotional well-being.

There is a noticeable need to increase organisations´ awareness about this topic, willingness to host different volunteers and capacity to support volunteers in different aspects of their life during the EVS.

Before we start. What do we mean by ‘mental health’?

Mental health is a state of well-being in which the individual realizes his or her own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to his or her community. (definition by World Health Organisation)

There is evidence based data about mental health, which is also relevant to EVS context and increases the need for such training:

• Statistics show that 25-40% of people experience mental health disorder at some time of their life.
• 38% of the people in EU have experienced mental health disorders during the previous year (research from 2011).
• Half of the mental health disorders occur before 24th birthday.
• Increase of the cases in which volunteers have anxiety, depression, break downs, anorexia etc. during the EVS (development or recrudescence of the illness)

Target group of this training course: everybody from European Voluntary Service (Erasmus+ volunteering projects) organisations who are supporting volunteers´ well-being during their service (supervisor, mentor, coordinator etc) from sending, hosting and coordinating organisations. It’s important that participants would be:
• able to work in English.
• able to attend the full duration of the training course.
• at least 18 years old.

Learning outcomes – at the end of this training course participants will:

1. recognise most important signs of mental health problems and interpersonal conflicts;
2. demonstrate knowledge about different approaches towards conflict;
3. describe first steps in supporting mental health and dealing with interpersonal conflicts;
4. implement active listening, assertiveness, supportive feedback and conflict resolution;
5. identify the limits of their own role in supporting the mental health problems;

Last, but not least – we will work towards developing participants´ inner readiness by strengthening their confidence and appreciative approach towards mental health. We hope participants to be more confident, motivated and open to approach mental health difficulties of others.
