“MOJU YOU(th)NIVERSITY” is a space for debate, networking, training and exchange of experiences of youth workers and leaders. 35 people from 17 different countries will gather in a training course in the South of Portugal from 16-21 October 2017.

General Description

“MOJU YOU(th)NIVERSITY 2017” is a space for debate, networking, training and exchange of experiences of youth workers and leaders. 6 days Training Course, 35 people from 17 European Countries will gather in Faro, Portugal, from 16th to 21st October 2017 for an international training course called “Transformers! – Training on youth transforming conflicts under cultural differences”.

The main aim of this project is to develop participants’ competences to work and to act within intercultural environment, specifically on themes like conflict management with young people with different cultural backgrounds, specially migrants and refugees through non formal education. It has also as objective to provide quality training for the participants in certain areas of the youth work.

The objectives that we hope will help us achieving the project’s aim are:

• Equip participants with interpersonal communication and negotiation skills
• Explore tools, approaches and attitudes for effective conflict intervention and resolving seemingly intractable disputes on all levels (personal, organizational, community and country level)
• Develop and promote intercultural competences and diversity management skills for youth work in multi-cultural environments with high conflict risks. Encourage participants to see diversity as an opportunity for value creation and cooperation.
• Promote active citizenship and non-violent actions towards peace and democracy.
• Promote the non formal education approach as a powerful method for dealing with conflicts
• Promote EU programs and opportunities for youth

The project will redirect youth energy from reacting to conflict but responding and engaging with conflict and give them skills to analyse the WHY of conflict and be able to carry out right approaches to conflicts but because you can not transform any form of conflict without adequate knowledge of negotiation skills. The training will fuse these two important concept and tools together. One of the aims of this training is to empower and equip young leaders and youth workers with negotiation skills.

Everyone negotiates something every day. You negotiate with your family about where to spend the weekend. You discuss a raise with your boss. You try to agree with a stranger on the price of his house. We buy and sell, manage workers and work for managers, deal with friends, family, colleagues, merchants, organizations, and institutions all the time.

But how does one become an effective negotiator? This training will revolutionize young people in Europe. The training will not only re-launch young people and redirect their energies, it will seek to make them change agents and unarmed army of young people skilled in Conflict Transformation and Negotiation through Turbulence.

Conference Digital Youth Work

Dates: 27-30 November 2017

Venue: Vienna, Austria

Eligible are 100 youth participants coming from: Erasmus+ Youth in Action Programme countriesPartner Countries Neighbouring the EU

Application deadline: 5th October 2017

The Conference will bring togehter 100 – 120 youth workers and youth work stakeholders from Europe and create a space to examine the concept of digital youth work from diverse angles.

General Description

The conference will inform about current developments on EU-Level, present concrete practice, enable participants to get a hands-on-experience on tools that are useful for their daily work and reflect on the role of youth workers in a digital world.

Above all it strives to demonstrate that digital youth work is fun (for young people and youth workers alike) and ignite the digital spark in participants.

Main Objectives:

  • To familiarise with and understand better digital youth work approaches
  • To learn practical examples of digital youth work
  • To exchange and practice digital tools for youth work
  • To reflect youth worker’s role in relation to digital approaches
  • To prepare participants to introduce digital approaches to their youth work practice

We are looking for participants who

  • Work with young people and/or youth work organisations as youth leader, youth worker, trainer, mentor and coach
  • are open and ready to introduce digital approaches to youth work practice
  • Can introduce new ideas both to their superiors and to the grass-root level colleagues
  • Are over 18+
  • Are able to learn and work in English

This project is to teach youth workers and young leaders who work with youth with diverse cultural background how to encourage their beneficiaries how to interact more by creating and sharing their digital stories.

Everyone has a story to tell, and those digital stories are always very powerful, since in many case they describe very important issues, such as violence, discrimination or a struggle to find one’s place in the society.

Developing projects that are based on new methods and approaches seems to be especially important for those youth workers who are dealing with difficult social issues, as they very often lack proper and effective tools to address their beneficiaries.

Training Course: Using Media as a tool for Gender equality promotion

Dates: 14-21 October 2017

Venue: Vienna, Austria

Eligible are 27 youth participants coming from: Armenia, Austria, Georgia, Netherlands, Poland, Ukraine

Application deadline: 16th September 2017

The main aim of this Training Course in Vienna is to increase awareness and provide youth workers with proper knowledge about gender issues and perspectives of European and project countries media.

General Description

Nowadays Europe enjoys the equality of women and men before the law more than ever. Through the media we see more women taking decision-making roles in our social and political life. Nowadays it is difficult to underestimate the role of Media in achieving the fundamental value of gender equality.

Having a great role in society, the Media definitely affects the perception of gender and acts as one of the main tools for “gender stereotyping”.

In 2013 the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe stated that “gender equality means equal visibility, empowerment, responsibility, and participation of both women and men in all spheres of public life, including the media”. Though having a big potential in promoting gender equality, in Europe media still acts as a tool that creates and maintains gender stereotypes. In the neighboring partner countries, we see an even worse picture.

Though these countries also share the main European values, in local realities we see lots of Gender-based Inequalities. In South-Eastern countries, even the physical violence rate against women is much higher. The oppressors bring excuses for their violation with phrases “to show the woman her place”, “man should be a man”.

That image is mainly generated as result of the absence of adequate education and the influence of the society through all types of media.

It is well-known fact that teenagers and youngsters often take as role models the images, that are created by the Media. At this sensible age, youngsters often don’t want to think critically and adapt the role models for different genders without questioning them. 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.

The main aim of this Training Course in Vienna is to increase awareness and provide youth workers with proper knowledge about gender issues and perspectives of European and project countries media.

Different scale of activities as simulations, role-plays, group activities, discussions, presentations, field visits will give 24 participants from 6 countries an opportunity to re-explore the concepts of gender and sex, gender stereotypes in the media of EU and Neighboring countries and etc.

Our aim. With this Training course, we aim to increase awareness and provide youth workers with proper knowledge about gender issues and perspectives of European and project countries media, so enabling them to work on gender-related projects.

Training Course M.O.D.A.L: Mobility opportunities as dynamic and active learning

Dates: 6-13 November 2017

Venue: El Padul (Granada), Spain

Eligible are 24 youth participants coming from: Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Italy, Moldova, Poland, Romania, Slovenia, Spain, Turkey, Ukraine

Application deadline: 22nd September 2017

This TC aims to offer detailed and complete information about the different possibilities offered by Erasmus+ in the youth field, focusing on KA1. Also it will put particular emphasis on the philosophy, structure and characteristics of the Program.

General Description

Beyond the lack of information itself, far too often there are difficulties in matching specific ideas and needs with actual opportunities provided by the Programme. Likewise, many organizations and promoters still have trouble in recognizing the long-term process of designing, applying for and managing quality projects.

In this sense our course is aimed at both young people and organizations that have no experience in the Programme as well as project-coordinators and entities looking for training on new sub actions of KA1 and willing to improve the quality of their educational projects in the youth field.

Objectives of the Training Course are:

– To present the Erasmus+ Programme in the framework of European youth policies and strategies.
– To explore the opportunities offered by the different sub-actions of KA1 of Erasmus+, focusing on their ability as a vehicle to transmit the common fundamental values to our society.
– To stimulate the practice in the management of international projects.
– To boost mobility and learning opportunities within the framework of Non-formal Education.
– To enable participants to reflect on their learning and to learn more about Youthpass – the strategy on the recognition of non-formal learning in the youth field, its technical tool to produce Youthpass Certificates, and its application in KA1 sub actions.
– To offer the opportunity to meet potential international partners to develop future projects.

The Training Course is open for voluntary and professional youth workers, working directly with young people, interested in learning more about KA1 of Erasmus+ to implement future projects.

Participants should be at least 18 years old, but there is no upper age limit. Be aware that this activity will be in English.

Participants are expected to be part of the full duration of the training course.
