Europe is facing challenges. People are fleeing their homes, trying to escape wars and poverty. Nationalism and walls are rising in Europe. These challenges affect our youth work and pop-up in classrooms, during workshops, in free-time activities. How could youth workers react to these issues? Training course Everybody Welcome deals with these challenges and turns them into learning opportunities.
Everybody Welcome sets following objectives:
– to give space to youth leaders and youth workers who are conscious of new challenges
– connected to migration and islam to reflect on their experience, react and give value to their role as pro-diversity educators.
– to use non-violent communication techniques, apply critical thinking and media literacy in youth work
– to collect activities of best practice and meet experienced educators
– to discuss migration and islam with experts to encourage participants to develop their own pro-diversity activities
– to prepare a handbook on education about migration and youth work in Europe
– to support participants in conducting their own pro-diversity activities in local communities after the training course
Participants should be over 20 years old and there is no upper limit.
– 2 or 3 out of four participants per sending organisation are active youth workers or youth leaders in their sending organizations who have been active in migration-themed activities or conscious about changing the rising intolerance against Muslims in Europe. These participants should be ready to organise their own pro-diversity activities in their communities where they can make change and willing to implement projects which would foster tolerance.
– Identification of other 1 or 2 participants is based on inclusive criteria. Preferably they should represent members of Muslim communities and should feel ready to contribute to pro-diversity activities and tackling discrimination.
– Participants should have good command of English, and be willing and committed to work hard
– Gender balance should be taken into account while selecting participants.
