This activity aims to address the climate issue from a multidisciplinary and cross-cutting youth approach to the daily activity of organizations, so that young people are involved in a global way in this problem.

General Description

Today, young people must grapple with serious problems inherited from their elders such as persisting poverty, rampant inequality and persisting poverty. Nevertheless, young people possess the energy, creativity and passion to create a Europe that does not live off the rest of the world, spreading poverty and environmental damage.

A visible fact of this energy and capacity is the youth movement against climate change, a movement that promotes student strikes to protest against the inaction of politicians against global warming. This movement has been gaining adherents in various countries, however many young people feel today disappointed for not being represented in the large spaces where debate and decisions are taken.

Although there are organizations and spaces of the youth that are a channel of access to these decision spaces, this is not enough. It is necessary to strengthen the existing spaces of young people in defense of their interests to protect the environment as agents of their own sustainable future.

For this reason, the Spanish Youth Council wants to lead and implement this training action focused on strengthening existing youth spaces to fight against the climatic emergency.

The training action “Climate emergency: priorities from the youth for a political agenda focused on sustainability” finds its origins in the growing involvement of young people on issues related to sustainability and the climate emergency. This activity aims to address the climate issue from a multidisciplinary and cross-cutting youth approach to the daily activity of organizations, so that young people are involved in a global way in this problem.

Specifically, this training activity seeks to achieve the following objectives:

1. Train youth entities in European Sustainability Policies through the entities’ representatives.

2. Reflection, analysis and open debate on the climate emergency and the positioning of young people in front of it.

3. Develop a common position in sustainability management that would be leaded by the Spanish Youth Council to the European Youth Forum.

The methodology of the activity is based on encouraging participation as a basis for the empowerment of the participants, who are mostly young people. That is why all sessions will combine theory, examples, case studies and dynamics around each of the themes of the courses.

Specifically, the methodology is based on non-formal education using participatory methods and strategies. This methodology is characterized by being open, flexible, adaptive, participatory and enriching personal and social development.

Moreover, the methodology of this training activity will assure a global perspective of the sustainability policy framework, that is, keeping in view the legal framework of their countries of origin.

Seminar: Research Methodology in the context of the European Youth Programmes

Dates: 20-22 April 2020

Venue: Berlin, Germany

Eligible are 40 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: 22nd March 2020

The main aim of the seminar is to explore, discuss and further develop research methodologies of transnational, intercultural, interdisciplinary youth research in the context of the European youth programmes in preparation of the new programme generation.

General Description

In the context of the European youth programmes (Erasmus+ Youth Programme and European Solidarity Corps), the amount and diversity of youth research has increased tremendously. For more than 10 years, the RAY Network – an open, growing, self-governed European research network of National Agencies of the European youth programmes and their research partners – conducted not only an ongoing monitoring and evaluation of the European youth programmes, but also implemented thematic research projects on topics such as young people’s active citizenship or youth workers’ professional development.

In complementarity, National Agencies have conducted research in international and national contexts, both within and beyond RAY, and encouraged beneficiaries of the European youth programmes to draw on research more consistently. As a result, more and more projects, in particular strategic partnerships in Key Actions 2 and 3, have begun to integrate research as a component in their projects.

Until now, there has been no opportunity for those conducting these different research projects and strands, to discuss and reflect on the methodology of youth research in the context of the European youth programmes. With this seminar, the RAY Network and Jugend für Europa would like to take a first step to provide a space for youth research practitioners and stakeholders to explore methodological questions and challenges.

Aim and Objectives of the Seminar

The main aim of the seminar is to explore, discuss and further develop research methodologies of transnational, intercultural and interdisciplinary youth research in the context of the European youth programmes in preparation of the new programme generation.

The following objectives have been set for the seminar, which seeks to:

  • Explore the methodological approaches and challenges of qualitative, quantitative and mixed-method research that is conducted while projects are ongoing;
  • Explore the methodological approaches and challenges of qualitative, quantitative and mixed-method research that is conducted once projects are completed;
  • Explore the methodological approaches and challenges of qualitative, quantitative and mixed-method research with different stakeholders and target groups;
  • Explore the methodological approaches and challenges of qualitative, quantitative and mixed-method impact research on the effects of projects in society.

Participants of the Seminar

All those interested in the methodologies of transnational, intercultural and interdisciplinary youth research in the context of the European youth programmes are invited to attend and contribute to the seminar, including but not limited to:

  • Research and policy partners of the RAY network at national and transnational level,
  • Research and practice partners of strategic partnerships in Key Actions 2 and 3, and
  • Youth research stakeholders interested in co-shaping youth research methodology.

We use the term ‘youth research stakeholders’ very openly. Whether you have commissioned or conducted project evaluations, undertaken or worked with youth surveys, implemented or interpreted semi-structured interviews, facilitated or summarised focus groups – as long as you are interested in youth research methodology, you are welcome!

Logistics of the Seminar

The seminar will take place from April 20 to April 22 in Berlin, Germany. The programme will start on April 20 after lunch, so that most participants should be able to arrive on April 20 in the morning. The seminar programme will finish on April 22 at lunch, so that all participants will be able to depart on April 22 throughout the day.

Additional: For researchers involved in RAY, the programme will finish on April 22 in the evening, so that all RAY participants will be able to depart on April 22 in the evening or on April 23 in the morning.

Hosts of the Conference

The seminar is financed through Erasmus+ Youth Programme and is hosted by the German National Agency Jugend für Europa. The seminar is coordinated by the coordination group of the RAY Network.

  •  To offer the opportunity to meet possible partner groups and to make contacts in other countries.

Programme: The BTM training is a learning-by-doing experience, built on a simulation exercise which is interspersed with workshops, info sessions, activities to improve the group dynamics, and ends with an evaluation.
