In 2014, eight NAs sought to build upon the work undertaken in Poland to promote international projects and non-formal education to a wider sector, particularly aiming for recognition by and links with higher education, targeting future youth workers and other, closely related fields.

The aims of the seminar are:

  • To share the context, ideas, resources and outcomes of national project activities.
  • To identify ways of improving the recognition of Intercultural Competence (ICC) and NFL (Non-formal learning) within Higher Education.
  • To develop the project’s sustainability notably through the establishment of a network/community of practice
  • To explore the diverse uses of ICC in national contexts
  • To evaluate the 2019-2020 phase of the project

Target groups of the seminar:

Democracy between a hashtag#, likes and Hatespeech: Virtual space is part of our lives, it has been added, and political and democratic education must begin today on the smartphone. But how? Join our Training on media literacy and digital ethics!

General Description

The current developments are leaving us shaken and it is time to react. Virtual space is part of our lives, it has not been replaced, but has been added, and political and democratic education must begin today on the smartphone.

Creating Space: A Digital Future with Ethics in Mind. A training for multipliers of formal and non-formal educational work

What is it about?

The current developments in Europe are shocking: We must finally understand that political education and media education must go hand in hand, otherwise democracy will soon blow up in our faces.

Hate-Speech and Fake News threatens democracy. The Krzyżowa Foundation, together with the Berghof Foundation and the Kreisau-Initiative e. V., is organizing a German-Polish-Ukrainian project which sees the clear need for action to expand media skills to include digital media ethics competence, because current information and education addressing media is no longer enough for taking responsible action in the digital society.

The main focus of the training is learn about and to gain applicable knowledge of teaching methods that promote the awareness of digital values and empower youth to stand up against hate speech on the Internet through value-based work. The workshop will introduce participants to a tool kit of methods aimed at strengthening the personalities of youth, enabling self-reflection, promoting empathy, and dealing with diversity in order to apply the concepts and methods to their own work with youths.

During the training, methods are developed and modified by the participants which are applied in the international education projects with young people and which the multipliers can use in their local youth work. The participants have the possibility to share their knowledge, to develop their own methods and to discuss and modify them together in the group so that they can be published under their own name in a digital toolbox.
The project language is English.

Who?
We invite youth workers, educators, teachers, and multipliers of youth work from Germany, Poland, and Ukraine.

Organizer: The Krzyżowa Foundation for Mutual Understanding in Europe

Seminar: Youth centres of the future

Dates: 18-19 June 2020

Venue: Luxembourg

Eligible are 20 participants coming from: Austria, Belgium – DE, Belgium – FL, Belgium – FR, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Republic of North Macedonia, Romania, Serbia, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, United Kingdom

Application deadline: 10th April 2020

ATTENTION: DUE TO THE IMPACT OF COVID-19 THIS ACTIVITY HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. APPLICANTS WILL BE INFORMED OF NEW DATES ONCE CONFIRMED!

The aim is to foster exchange and to brainstorm together if the orientation of youth policy and youth work in the setting of youth centres is still tailored to the needs and interests of young people.

General Description

The everyday lives of young people are fast changing. At the same time the youth centres in Luxembourg have existed for over two decades, and there is a possibility, that the needs of young people are developing faster than, and not necessary in accordance with the concept, architecture and equipment of the youth centres.

Therefore, it is essential to analyse on a regular basis if this is the case, and if so, further develop and adapt the concept of the youth centres.

Through a participative approach we would like to gather policy makers, youth workers, and researchers to discuss what the youth centres of the future could look like, what could be the role of the youth workers, how we can reach out to young people, what the impact of digitalisation could be, and if the findings and needs are different for small, medium and large municipalities.

The objectives of this 2-day seminar are:

  • Present the challenges to adapt the youth centres to the fast changing needs and interest of young people in the view of youth workers, researchers and policy makers
  • Make an inventory of different models of youth centres
  • Elaborate possible alternative concepts and approaches for locally embedded youth centres
