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

EYE Opener offers an international learning experience to young people and practitioners active in youth work, enabling them to develop their competences in setting up quality Youth Exchange projects within the Erasmus+ Youth Programme.

General Description

In this training course, you will learn all the basics you need to organise and apply for a grant for youth exchanges in Erasmus+ Youth Programme. In this activity we focus on youth-adult pairing: 1 experienced adult leader (over 18 years old) + 1 or 2 youth (15-18 years old).

Target group

Max 40 participants (aiming at between 12 and 18 pairing groups).

1 Adult Leader (over 18 years old) who deals directly with the young people and is committed to engaging in the future development of a youth exchange in partnership with the young persons. Two leaders could attend if mixed (male/female) or where national legislation requires this (after agreement with the sending National Agency).

1 to 2 Young People: between 15-18 years old
Both youth workers and young people will be expected to communicate in English.

General Description

The aim of the training course is to offer an international learning experience to practitioners active in the youth work field, enabling them to develop their competences in setting up quality Youth Exchange projects.

Venue: Horezu, Romania

Eligible are 34 participants coming from: Bulgaria, Croatia, Estonia, Italy, Latvia, Poland, Romania, Turkey

Application deadline: 7th March 2020

Out for changE+ is a training course dedicated to 34 youth workers that will develop themselves personally and professionally with the aim of promoting and being active in inclusive education.

General Description

Through the training course “Out for ChangE+” we want to motivate youth workers to change the set patterns and perspective about education and activity design, to realize the countless possibilities to implement inclusive activities and the multidimensional benefits that this can have in the learning process and development of the young people, contributing to the change of the learning, education and educational system in an inclusive one, and empower youth workers and most important, the young people through them.

Furthermore, we want to support youth workers to understand better and promote an inclusive environment, to develop their skills and learning in innovative settings, using non-formal education methods to raise their civic and social awareness.

Throughout the project, the participants will:

1. Acquire knowledge about inclusion and inclusive non-formal methods, that they can apply in their typical work;

2. Develop their training skills and expertise in working with young people in inclusive settings, using non-formal education and experiential methods;

3. Increase their awareness that integrating inclusive education methods and activities can create social change and benefit greatly the young people and their communities.

The training course will have 8 full days of activities, between the 22nd and the 29th of April 2020 (21 and 30 April wil be travel days) that will be organized in Horezu, Romania, hosting 34 youth workers that will develop themselves personally and professionally with the aim of promoting and being active in inclusive education.

The methods used will be non-formal indoor and outdoor methods, focused on inclusion by combining activities and tools used in: non-formal education, experiential outdoor education and therapy, art and drama therapy, mixed in a multidimensional approach to create great impact and provide practical tools that they can transfer easily in their daily work with the young people.

We will focus on: promoting inclusion in all our activities, team building activities, to form the group and create a network of professionals; peer to peer learning – sharing sessions; design and simulation of activities to develop the knowledge and skills of the participants; communication with groups that have members with disability; group dynamics management. The activities of the mobility are based on the principle of learning by doing.

Participants:

Our participants will be 34 youth workers from the 8 partner countries that work daily with youngsters – any level of experience with the age above 18, interested and highly motivated in developing their skills in inclusive education and with a vivid interest of doing so with the help of non-formal outdoor experiential education and with a strong determination to transfer the methods in their daily work and to promote inclusive education in their communities and beyond.

They should own a strong desire to share their own experiences and learning outcomes and use them as tools to improve their skills/methods and the ones of the youth they are working with.

English level should not be eliminatory, but it would be recommended to be at least B1.

The project is not created for outdoor experts, but for youth workers that are interested to integrate in their work methods that favour inclusion of youngsters with mobility or visual impairment. The physical level of difficulty of the methods is low, but the specific outcomes about how to actually work with outdoor inclusive education having a group with participants with special needs is high level.

Conference RAN YF&C – C&N meeting ‘Digital youthwork in Prevention and Countering of Violent Extremism’

Dates: 19-20 March 2020

Venue: Brussels, Belgium – FL

Eligible are 20 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, Turkey, United Kingdom, Western Balkan countries, Eastern Partnership Countries

Application deadline: 19th February 2020

Aim of the meeting is to deepen the knowledge on doing digital youth work in specific P/CVE contexts, by focussing on how to work with a specific target audience. This will feed into an in-depth step-to-step approach on doing digital youth work.

General Description

For the RAN Youth, Families and Communities and Communications and Narratives meeting on ‘Digital youthwork in a P/CVE context’ we are currently looking for suitable participants.

The meeting will combine the experience and knowledge from youth workers who are already engaged in digital youth work activities and those who are new to this field, with the experience of C&N communication experts.

Aim of the meeting is to deepen the knowledge on doing digital youth work in specific P/CVE contexts, by focussing on how to work with a specific target audience. This will feed into an in-depth step-to-step approach that can be used for less experienced digital youth workers.

We are currently looking for experts on (digital) one-to-one interventions, experienced youth workers who already do online youth work and youth workers who have started to do digital youth work or plan to do so in the nearby future.

Furthermore, we are looking for communications experts who have experience with counter- and alternative narratives and targeting specific audiences in a P/CVE context. In order to find the best suited participants, we would like to ask you if you could answer the following questions:

For (digital) youth workers: Do you combine your online activities with work offline? If so, what is the offline/online component? In what digital youth work activity/project are you involved, or do you plan to be involved in? What does this activity/project look like? Does it target a P/CVE audience?

For communications experts: what is your experience in communications in P/CVE (specific project)? What is your experience with targeting a specific audience online in a P/CVE setting? Have you used a Theory of Change to check why an intervention would assumedly lead to behavioural change?

Deadline
If you are interested in participating at this meeting, could you please elaborate on these questions before 31 January (ultimately 20 February) the latest by sending your answers to a.jansen@radaradvies.nl and l.wouterse@radaradvies.nl? We will invite participants based on this information. Please keep in mind that we only have a limited amount of places available for this meeting, so participation is not guaranteed.

Background and aim of this meeting:
Young people spend a significant amount of their time online. Extremists know very well how to find them, provide them with high production value propaganda, and actively approach and recruit them online. Many youth workers are eager to engage in online youth work and online one-on-one interventions.

This topic has been discussed in some earlier RAN meetings. In CSEP training seminars and some C&N meetings, it was explored how practitioners such as youth workers can reach out to their target audiences with their messages online.

The YF&C expert meeting on online youth work discussed the topic of effective digital youth work in depth and set up a step-by-step approach on how to do digital youth work online in a P/CVE context.

Since effective digital youth work remains challenging for many youth workers throughout the EU, there is a need for more knowledge, tools and methods on how to practically do this and which rules apply to online professional interaction with client groups. The outcomes will feed into an updated step-to-step approach and will be disseminated among a wider group of youth workers.
