Training Course: people beyONd borders – tools for fighting discrimination and building more inclusive society

Dates: 17-26 February 2018

Venue: Serbia

Eligible are 22 participants coming from: Italy, Kosovo*, Montenegro, Portugal, Serbia, Slovenia

Application deadline: 27th November 2017

Erasmus+ project “people beyONd borders” is a TC to be held in Serbia, in February 2018. The main objective of the TC is providing participants theoretical and practical knowledge about current refugee’s situation in Serbia, Europe and tools to work with around the topic.

Description

This TC is designed to introduce participants to the topic of migrations and current situation in Europe regarding migrants and refugees, and to share with them tools for fighting discrimination and building more inclusive society.

What?
„people beyONd borders“ is a 10 days TC with the objective of providing participants with theoretical and practical knowledge about current migrant and refugee situation in Europe, and providing them with tools for understanding this problem, for fighting discrimination and building their community into more understanding and inclusive one.

Why?
From April 2015 until today, during “European Refugee Crisis”, over two million refugees and migrants have had their desperate journey to Europe, coming mostly from war-torn Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan. These people came running away from unbearable life conditions in their countries, searching for safety and future for themselves and their families.

Their way to Europe is full of obstacles and difficulties and what they encounter once they finally reach Europe is devastating. They become subjects to discrimination, stereotypes, exclusion, and unfortunately even violence.

At the same time, media are either not reporting about this things or they’re sending incorrect, exaggerated and even dangerous information. All this creates atmosphere of not understanding, discrimination and prejudice towards refugees. In order to make first steps towards change of this atmosphere, we would like to provide young people with knowledge and tools they can use to make the change.

How?
Through workshops, lectures, interactive presentations and discussions hosted by experts on the subject, participants will learn and practice different approaches to this situation which will hopefully inspire them to act and to share their knowledge in their own community.

Who?
19 participants from 6 countries – Serbia, Kosovo*, Montenegro, Italy, Slovenia and Portugal.

Training Course: The new concept of social inclusion

Dates: 11-18 December 2017

Venue: Kolasin, Montenegro

Eligible are 24 participants coming from: Bosnia and Herzegovina, France, Italy, KOSOVO*, Latvia, Montenegro, Serbia, Spain

Application deadline: 11th November 2017

The main aim of our project is to equip youth workers with competences and methods needed for providing social entrepreneurial learning to the young people with fewer opportunities (particularly young refugee and youth with migrant origin).

Description

Social entrepreneurship has been gaining a growing attention in the last few years, as a way for addressing social challenges such as migration.

Social enterprises work for the less privileged people in society; many of them have been supporting the active inclusion of disadvantaged people, contribute to job creation, and often provide services which are socially necessary and useful.

Social entrepreneurship allows young people not only to gain professional experience but also to integrate into society. Youth work can inform young people about the advantages and drawbacks of entrepreneurship helping them make informed decisions.

It makes young people reflect on the values and ethics of youth work and base their entrepreneurial decisions on them. It can also guide them to other services who can help them (employment offices, specialized training courses, local and regional administrations etc.).

Project will facilitate the sharing of practices and methods useful for social entrepreneurship creation and support.

Application deadline: 11th October 2017

This training is a “crash course” in how to get involved in the Erasmus+ Programme in the field of youth, and it is targeting organisations in the Western Balkan countries.

General Description

Would you like to provide for the young people you work with possibilities for international learning mobility? Or are you interested in developing the capacities of your organisation and its staff to better respond to the challenges you face in your field of work? Would you like to add a taste of Europe into the activities of your organisation?

You might have heard of the Erasmus+ Programme already, and some of your colleagues might have been involved in its activities home or abroad. Maybe your organisation already took part in some projects within the Programme, or you tried at least, but you could not find partners or the application process was not successful. Or maybe your organisation has no prior experience in European cooperation, but you would like to gain some.

The Erasmus+ Programme is a European Union’s programme in the field of youth, which gives organisations possibilities to realise projects together with partners from other countries aiming at enhancing the active citizenship and empowerment of young Europeans, supporting the development of competences of young people and youth work practitioners, and strengthening the organisational capacity and overall professionalization of the structures in the field of youth. The Programme strongly promotes participation of young people in democratic life, intercultural dialogue, social inclusion and solidarity.

This training is a “crash course” in how to get involved in the Erasmus+ Programme in the field of youth and it is meant primarily for organisations in Kosovo*. One third of the places are reserved for participants from other Western Balkan countries. It consists of the basics of what the Programme aims at in the field of youth and what kinds of activities (with the emphasis on youth exchanges, volunteering activities, mobility of youth workers and capacity-building activities) can be implemented.

The participants will be guided through process how the needs and ideas of their organisations can be worked on towards concrete project proposals, with reference to the criteria and structure of the application form of the Erasmus+ Programme.

The participants will be introduced with the possibilities to apply and coordinate projects or to become a partner in projects applied and coordinated in another (Erasmus+ Programme) country. The activity will also provide good practice examples of realised projects and reflection on the essential quality aspects of good projects and partnerships. The training is useful for complete beginners of the Erasmus+ Programme, as well as for those who want to upgrade their knowledge and skills or use the Programme in a new way.

The training will be implemented according to the principles and approaches of non-formal learning, where the participants’ learning needs and goals are in focus. Two experienced trainers will lead the training jointly with the representatives of the organising institutions.

Aim:
The aim of the training course is to increase the readiness and competences of organisations working in the field of youth in Kosovo and other Western Balkan countries to take part in the Erasmus+ Programme in the field of youth.

Objectives:
• To provide information on the background, objectives and structure of the Erasmus+ Programme in the field of youth;
• To guide participants on how to use the Programme –what kinds of activities they can do– to reach the specific goals of their organisations;
• To reflect on quality aspects of projects according to the criteria of the Programme;
• To view and clarify the application forms and procedures;
• To inspire the participants with good practice project examples.

The training course gathers ca. 30 participants from Kosovo* (2/3 places) and other Western Balkan countries (1/3 places)

The selected participants should:
• be representatives of organisations working directly with young people in Kosovo* or other Western Balkan countries;
• have interest in (further) getting involved in the Erasmus+ Programme in the field of youth;
• already have an idea what are the themes or topics relevant for their organisations, and on which they would want to work in the European context;

Training Course: Practice Peace 2017/18

Dates: 28 October – 3 November 2017

Venue: Krzyżowa, Poland

Eligible are 24 participants coming from: Armenia, Germany, KOSOVO*, Poland, Serbia, Turkey

Application deadline: 30th September 2017

Practice Peace is a two-stage training course on discrimination, conflict management and peace. It involves a simulation game and methods from the Theatre of the Oppressed.

Description

Conflict is a natural, normal and neutral occurrence but how to deal with that which is normal and neutral is a major challenge.

Depressed economies , unemployment among young people , diversity , multiculturalism and migration creates dislocations and conflict but a clear understanding of how to analyze these conflicts is what is lacking which makes a lot of people to either resort to blame game or wrong approaches to conflict which in turn escalates the conflict.

It is possible for people to take the right approaches in dealing with conflict provided they understand the root causes of the conflict. If you find yourself in a diverse team who are constantly in mortal disagreements and everyone pulling in different directions or a relationship that suddenly turns sour or a stable community which suddenly go up in arms against each other, then there is need for conflict analysis skills.

A superficial assessment of the situation based on what can be seen or associated emotional feeling will confuse and derail right approaches to transforming the situation but a clear understanding of CONFLICT ANALYSIS SKILL will help in delving to the epi-centre of the problem which will bring about right approaches and lead to stable and harmonious working relationships.

What is discrimination and how can it be effectively countered?

That is the guiding question of the two-stage training course Practice Peace. It offers an opportunity to:

  • Deepen your understanding of conflict resolution, discrimination and peace;
  • Acquire educational tools how to work on and counter discrimination;
  • Network and develop own ideas with participants from six different countries.

The first part (28.10. – 03.11.2017 in Krzyżowa, Poland) consists of a simulation game. The participants immerse themselves in a scenario from the Northern Ireland Conflict and take the role of real-life figures. They acquire an understanding of social, religious and political discrimination and develop strategies how to counter discrimination effectively.

In the second part (03.02. – 08.02.2018 in Novi Sad, Serbia), participants get to know practical anti-discrimination methods from the Theatre of the Oppressed and learn how apply them in their individual work context.

We will actively involve the participants and engage our brains, hearts and bodies. Apart from a simulation game and methods from the Theatre of the Oppressed (Augusto Boal), our methodological approach includes theoretical inputs, discussions, workshops, reflections, best-practice examples, excursions, cooperation games, open space and others. The participants will be lodged in shared rooms.

The seminar language will be English. Participants are expected to be able to communicate fluently in English.
