A 4 day intensive course, Using non-formal learning methodologies, the training led by experts, will share information about The importance of soil protection & management – Learning about the Voluntary Guidelines for Sustainable Soil Management

General Description

CCIVS is partner of the Soil4Life project coordinated by Legambiente. The SOIL4LIFE project, realized with the contribution of the European Commission (Life), intends to promote the sustainable and efficient use of the soil and its resources in Italy and in Europe. For this reason the partners involved in the project, are engaged in carrying out information and awareness raising activities and in promoting interventions, including regulatory ones, which are essential to curb the consumption of this non-renewable natural resource.

Process

The Training will be a 4 day intensive course, with arrivals on the 14 and departures on the 19 October 2019.

Using non-formal learning methodologies, the training led by experts, will share information about the SOIL4LIFE project, including:

– The importance of soil protection & management

– Learning about the Voluntary Guidelines for Sustainable Soil Management (VGSSM)

The proposed agenda can be found here

The Training will take place during the CCIVS Global Human Rights week organised by CCIVS, during which one day will be dedicated to the actions of the training and work of CCIVS members towards Climate Justice.

The training seeks to prepare Soil Ambassadors who may then take the information gained during the Training course and support with the implementation of actions in their sending organisations projects during 2020.

Participants will learn how to share information concerning SOIL4LIFE with their local projects, by using methodologies that train the trainer. They will learn how to communicate, how to use the communication tools which are in place and how to ensure follow up in their local projects.

During the training the participants will collectively build a model to work on soil protection and conservation, which they can then adapt to their local reality and implement in their home countries. They will share this model on return with their sending organisations and will work to develop and implement the model during the local action.

As a result, each organisation will be requested to implement at least 1 local campaign, which focuses on the importance of soil protection – this activity will be highlighted through the global communication campaign.

CCIVS will coordinate the writing of a manifesto, the content of which will include an overview of the state of soil protection and management, a call to action and a pledge from civil society organisations.

The creation of the manifesto will start with the Training Course, participating organisations will be asked to give their feedback on what they would like to see on a manifest.

Post Training and Support Structure

A blog space will be created for the participants to share questions and updates about what they are doing once they arrive back home – in this way they can mutually support each other, and any questions they cannot answer will be given support by the experts (trainers, CCIVS and Legambiente). They will also be able to request skype calls and send emails for any questions or doubts they may have.

Costs

 

This project is financed by the Erasmus+ Youth Programme.

Provide a space to promote partnerships for quality Mobility of Youth Workers projects, to discuss different activities eligible within Erasmus+ Programme, and reflect about the role of youth workers and young leaders in the elaboration of projects.

General Description

Many youth organisations and institutions lack funding to further educate/train their youth workers. The Erasmus+ Programme offers a project type called Mobility of Youth Workers.

This project type can be tailor made to serve the needs of your organisation and its youth workers, either in the form of trainings, study visits, job shadowing or other formats. By making an international project together with youth workers from other European countries you can get the funding you need to strengthen your youth work.

The PBA will provide the participants with the necessary skills and support needed to find partners, develop a project and even submit it in 2020.

Aim of the PBA

Provide a space in order to promote partnerships and develop quality Mobility of Youth Workers projects, to discuss and analyse the different activities eligible within the Erasmus+ programme, the quality elements of such projects and reflect about the role of youth workers and young leaders in the elaboration of projects.

Objectives

  • To create an opportunity to find good and reliable partners to make Mobility of Youth Workers projects based on the organisation’s needs;
  • To understand what is needed to plan a Mobility of Youth Workers project of good quality;
  • To create a solid network of contacts and partnerships;
  • To understand the impact and future social change a Mobility of Youth Worker can have for the organisation and within the local community.

Target group

The partner building activity is open for voluntary and professional youth workers, working directly with young people on a local level. Participants should be able to make decisions regarding partnerships.

The participant’s organisation/institution should be interested in organising a Mobility of Youth Worker project within the frame of the Erasmus+ Youth Programme.

Working methods

This PBA will be based on non-formal learning approaches encouraging the active involvement of participants, giving you space to take an active role, express yourselves, share good examples of practice and initiate new sustainable partnerships.

Small organisations in rural areas can find human resources as a challenge in organising international youth projects. This study visit shows good practices in one region in Finland. The countryside can be international!

General Description

Do you want to meet other youth workers from countryside, villages, rural centres and small towns, where distances, human resources and size of the organisation can cause challenges for international youth projects?

We know that international youth work can be done in villages and small towns, regardless of the challenges. We also know the impact of these projects can be much larger in small places than large cities.

Practices from Eastern Finland

We will look at the cooperation of actors in a Finnish region South Carelia. During the study visit you will see how international activities were initiated in the region with the help of the largest town and how the small villages learned to adopt international activities as a permanent part of their work.

You will meet young people who have been part of international projects, see how projects have been carried out in small places and explore what kind of benefits of regional cooperation gives.

Objectives:

  • compare realities of rural areas in different parts of Europe
  • understand how international youth projects can be done in the rural areas
  • see examples of projects and working ways

  • find partners for future projects
  • explore the opportunities of EU’s youth programmes (Erasmus+, European Solidarity Corps) in rural settings
  • Participants from the countryside

Do you carry out regular youth work or youth activities in a rural setting? If you are working in a public or non-governmental organisation in a small rural town, in a village or in a coutryside centre, you can benefit from this study visit.

You should be over 18 and and your role in the organisation should be active – maybe you organise regular activities directly to the young people in your organisation or you want to develop your organisation towards international projects.

It does not matter, if you have never organised an international youth activity. This can be your step into the European projects. If you have experiences, you should be curious to explore new ways in working in projects.

If you are from a big city and or you represent a university student organisations we will not prioritise your application. If you are a volunteer in your organisation, your role should be relevant in the planning and implementation of the organisation’s activities.

Municipal youth work and NGOs

The study visit will visit the City of Lappeenranta, Municipality of Rautjärvi and Lemi 4H Organisation. We will be accommodated in Lappeenranta and visit the other villages in the region.

Participants from Europe and Eastern Partnership+ Russia

The call is open for all Erasmus+ Programme Countries, however, the following countries have signed up as partners and therefore we will prioritise applicants from Austria, Belgium (FR), Czech Republic, Estonia, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain, United Kingdom, Finland and Switzerland.

If you are from some other country, you can apply, but your country may not have reserved money for sending participants to this activity. If you want to know how the travel costs are covered or if your country is sending participants, you have to contact the national agency in your own country.

You are welcomed to join the study visit from Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, Moldova, Georgia, Azerbaijan or Armenia. If you will be selected, Finland will cover your travel and visa costs.
