Kaleidoscope is a training programme designed to give youth workers (professional and volunteer) the confidence and competence to explore the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and citizenship with the young people they work with.
Kaleidoscope draws inspiration from the One World Citizens (OWC) training course which was created and developed by the same trainers. Following on from the experience and evaluation of two OWC trainings.
It seems reasonable to organize a next opportunity for practitioners within the Erasmus+ programme to take part in a training course exploring global issues, and their impact on young people.
We wish to carry out this project for two reasons. Firstly, we are living in more globalised and interconnected world. This new context warrants a reinforcement of solidarity and active citizenship.
Additionally, with the increasing trend of extremism globally, there is a need for a reinforcement of values related to this project and global citizenship in general such as sustainability, equality and peace.
The objectives of the training are:
– Examine the relationship between European citizenship and global citizenship
– Build skills, knowledge and attitudes related to addressing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), particularly Goal 4 – Quality Education
– Explore a variety of methodologies related to tackling the SDGs
– Allow a space for participants to design their own SDGs activities
This project is financed by the Erasmus+ Youth Programme.
Accommodation, food, programme and travel costs up to the maximum amount are fully covered.
The house will be self managed by the group during the course. This aligns with our educational approach which encourages sharing, responsibility and development of community spirit. Participants will share responsibility for everyday tasks such as washing up, cleaning and sorting garbage.
Food will be prepared by our staff who have vast experience of preparing food for large groups. In an effort to promote sustainability, the menu will be vegetarian with efforts made to use local produce where possible.
