Description in Russian/Описание на русском языке:

Тренинговый курс “INSPIRATION: INvolving youthS in Project and Inclusion RATIONal activities”, предназначенный для молодежных работников, молодежных лидеров, учителей, волонтеров, представителей молодежных НКО и других молодежных структур, которые вовлечены в социальное проектирование (или желают «открыть» для себя это направление). Еще одной важной и непростой задачей является вовлечение молодежи с ограниченными возможностями в активную социальную практику и создание необходимых условий для возникновения диалога и взаимодействия между обычной молодежью и молодежью с инвалидностью. Тренинговый курс проводится при финансовой поддержке программы Европейского Союза Erasmus+.

Цель проекта – вдохновить всех тех, кто работает с молодежью (молодежных работников, тренеров, молодежных лидеров, педагогов, волонтеров и т.д.) раскрыть свой потенциал в создании региональных и международных инклюзивных проектов, включая молодежные обмены в рамках программы Erasmus+.

Задачи тренингового курса:

предоставить возможность совместной работы в инклюзивной группе;
ознакомить участников с ценностями, принципами и методами неформального образования и способствовать их применению в работе с разноуровневыми группами;
предоставить пространство для обмена реалиями и успешными практиками работы в инклюзивных группах в странах ЕС, регионе Восточного партнерства и России;
ознакомить участников с критериями качества проектов молодёжных обменов, включая Youthpass и различные обучающие инструменты, которые будут впоследствии использованы в их работе с молодежью;

способствовать расширению количества участников, знакомых с программой Erasmus + и уверенно организовывающих самостоятельные проекты; предоставить безопасное пространство и поддержку участникам в разработке общих идей инклюзивных проектов молодежных обменов, которые будут реализованы после курса.
Курс знакомит молодежных работников и лидеров с навыками и инструментами для их дальнейшего развития и предполагает применение инклюзивного подхода в своих городах/странах.

Training Course: SomeCamp EU

Dates: 9-11 December 2019

Venue: Meriton Conference and Spa Hotel, Estonia

Eligible are 40 participants coming from: Austria, Belgium – FL, Belgium – FR, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Republic of North Macedonia, Serbia, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom

Application deadline: 9th October 2019

It`s a practice oriented event aiming to create an inspiring environment for learning, sharing and co-creation. The program will combine expert inputs with active contribution from participating colleagues in thematic workshops and in an innovation lab.

General Description

 

SomeCamp EU is a training event for youth workers from all types of organisations, on all levels, all over Europe. The concept is based on Verke’s national SomeCamp event that has been running since 2015.

We have now joined the forces and energy from Verke and Estonian Youth Work Centre to open the opportunity to participate in a practice oriented training for youth work colleagues on international level.

Let’s take a step further to discover the world of smart youth work, with a focus on digital youth work. What’s there already? What are the learnings from practices so far? What else would be needed now? How to nudge further developments? We aim to get to know the colleagues and practices from different countries, inspire ourselves with inputs and thematic workshops & will then launch a hands-on innovation lab in order to further enrich the digital youth work practices.

Through the event we are aiming to create an inspiring environment for learning, sharing and co-creation.

In order to do so, the programme will combine expert inputs with active contribution from participating colleagues in thematic workshops run by participants themselves and an innovation lab.

We hope that the programme can discover the world of smart youth work, with a focus on digital youth work, as diverse as it exists. To achieve this, we hope to see as many proposals for workshops by participants as possible!

Maybe you have developed a method, a tool or a material and would be excited to share it more broadly? Maybe you have an idea or prototype and could run a workshop to test it with colleagues and get some valuable inputs for further development? Or is there an issue, a burning question in your practice that you could raise and invite a small group of colleagues to think along with you?

Your workshop can tell about a success story or valuable experience of failure. Something to do with digital competencies, datafication, maker activities, gaming, AR/VR, artificial intelligence…

It is indeed as open as it sounds, as far as it is relevant for the digital perspectives of youth work. We hope to see many workshops where participants can try out methods and tools in practice, so the more practical workshop you are proposing, the better chances you will have to run it. So please do not hesitate to propose your workshop and contribute to mutual learning and sharing!

Working language of SomeCamp EU is English.

We will be able to host 40 participants and will confirm the participants the latest on 14th of October.

Costs

 

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