Eligible are 23 participants coming from: Czech Republic, Estonia, France, Greece, Italy, Spain, United Kingdom

Application deadline: 25th April 2019

WeCan is a training course for youth workers for facilitate community processes on local development based on economic and social criteria. Our tools are based on participatory planning, diversified networking, peer learning, non formal education.

General Description

Youth leaders need to increase their skills in the ability to activate territorial networks and participation in order to mobilize the community and each individual actor to participate in local development.

The civil economy and the sharing economy offer methodological inputs and guidelines to follow in order to work on this process. The common good and the community are elements from which to improve the involvement of all the actors towards a re-launch of the territories and the feeling of citizenship and participation. It is important to focus on young people and know how to involve them by enhancing their skills and creativity, avoiding marginalization and isolation.

We Can is a training course for youth leaders and youth workers with the aim of increasing the skills of educators to be process facilitators who, through participatory planning and networking among different stakeholders, promote and work on local development towards a wellness community, which have not only economic but also social objectives.

The training follows the values and principles of the sharing and civil economy, promoting cooperative governance with the integrated use of different participatory methodologies coming from non-formal and informal education. The training will be developed in 4 phases: presentation, input, output and follow-up. The participants from 7 countries, in 7 days of training, will therefore have the opportunity to receive and experiment new knowledge, share and network their skills, transform the input received into output through a creative group process and plan follow-up activities and dissemination of results outside the project.

From 10 to 16 June 2019, the village of Anticoli Corrado, a small town in the Aniene valley, will host a group of 23 people from Italy, Greece, Spain, Estonia, Czech Republic, Great Britain and France. This training, which in the short term is an opportunity for training and updating for youth leaders, in the long run fits among the seeds planted to work ever more to the development of communities and inclusive societies that know how to work on their local development through the enhancement of people and resources, both public and private, towards a common goal of community welfare.

The training will be conducted entirely in English.

A Youthpass Certificate will validate the competences acquired by the participants during this experience.

How: phases and contents
The training will be developed in 4 phases:

  • Presentation: day 1 – presentation of the project and the participants, team building. Participants are requested to share their idea of civil economy and tell their work experience on the territory and on local development
  • Input: days 2-5 – sharing experiences about local development, sharing and civic economy, cooperative governance; team working, debate and intercultural comparison with participants proposing sub-themes and working together on common problems and solutions

Training Course: Youth work – a path to peaceful societies

Dates: 13-21 May 2019

Venue: Blagoevgrad, Bulgaria

Eligible are 30 participants coming from: Bulgaria, Cyprus, Greece, Italy, Netherlands, Republic of North Macedonia, Romania, Spain, United Kingdom

Application deadline: 27th April 2019

The need of the project comes from the existing growing tension and violence among smaller ethnic/migrant groups and the increasing tensions within many EU countries in regard to nationalism and racism.

General Description

The training course “Youth work – a path to peaceful societies” will be held in Blagoevgrad, Bulgaria from 13.05.2019 – 21.05.2019. It will involve 30 youth workers and leaders from the UK, Italy, Bulgaria, Spain, Greece, Romania, Turkey, Cyprus, Holland and Republic of North Macedonia.

The need of the project comes from the existing growing tension and violence among smaller ethnic/migrant groups and the increasing tensions within many EU countries in regard to nationalism and racism. After extensive analyses on the situations in all the partner countries and the long-term experience of our partners in the field, together we have developed the concept of the current project proposal.

Chauvinism, racism and discrimination, combined with violence and threatening acts against minorities raises the need to seek effective strategies to address the problems of conflict, radicalization and violence among young people. With the ongoing refugee crisis in Europe, the level of violence is increasing among all countries, including the UK.

The project will cover different types of conflicts and in different settings and consequently ways of transforming conflicts by non-violent actions. The training course will foster constructive debate on recent conflicts in Europe and cooperation in the youth field.

This is done by promoting non-violent approaches leading to actions on peace-building. Moreover, young leaders will discuss the significant role of youth participation in grass-root peace-building initiatives. By providing an overall understanding of conflict theories and providing space to analyses concrete conflicts and tensions, participants will increase their competences for solving conflict in a non-violent way.

Therefore, youth workers participating in the training will gain skills in planning and intervening in these situations with transformation approaches, by implementing peace building activities and non-violent actions. All the above stated illustrates the importance of youth work in the areas of peace building, conflict transformation, human rights education and anti-discrimination.

Main objectives of the project:

• To develop a set of knowledge, skills and competences of youth workers in conflict transformation and peace-building;
• To equip youth workers with an understanding of non-violence concepts and human rights education that can be applied to their local communities to prevent conflicts and violent radicalisation among local youths;
• To motivate participants to advocate for non-violent actions on the local, national and international levels, and for them to act as multipliers and ambassadors of peace;
• To encourage cooperation between the organisations for further actions on youth peacebuilding initiatives;
• To promote the European values of intercultural dialogues, peace, anti-discrimination, diversity, respect of human rights, tolerance and solidarity
