Training Course Experience the LOVE: Make a better future

Dates: 14-22 September 2019

Venue: Kildu, Estonia

Eligible are 21 participants coming from: Estonia, Greece, Netherlands, Portugal, Republic of North Macedonia, Romania, Slovak Republic, Spain, Turkey

Application deadline: 8th August 2019

A training course on self-love and increasing love towards others. We aim to increase youth workers’ feeling of love so that they could carry the love and the love-creating workshops on to their community.

General Description

We aim to create a world where people make decisions based on love, as opposed to hate, revenge, fear, greed, etc.

For this end we wish to increase the deep feeling of love in the youth. There is no point in building the capacities of people who have the wrong motivation for doing things. The love motivation of an entrepreneur will lead to a community of harmony. The wrong motivation tends to cause social injustice and environmental problems. Motivation matters.

The main objective of this project is to equip youth workers with:

1) the attitude of love,
2) knowledge of the workshops/exercises that can be used as tools to increase love to increase the capacities of the partnering organisations,
3) skills for spreading the love in a trustworthy manner. So the overall objective is to build the capacities/skills of youth workers on disseminating love.

Love doesn’t necessarily mean romantic love. Love is a fundamental European value which is the basis for human rights. Increasing love can do wonders to stop the European trend of radicalisation, it works on the root level of people’s consciousness. Increasing love decreases hate, therefore hate speech, radicalisation, etc.

Love is the cornerstone of tolerance. Love is the fundamental feeling that is required to accept-embrace diversity and intercultural and inter-religious dialogues.

We will work with:

  • being in front of other people without wearing a mask
  • speaking from the whole heart and listening with it as well
  • focusing on the sensations in the body
  • forgiving those that need to be forgiven
  • letting go of what needs to be let go
  • the support within the group and more.

We would be especially glad to be able to provide the feeling of love on to youth workers working with (future) entrepreneurs or leadership skills building among the youth or doing the important work of supporting the youth one-on-one in their development in their local community. However, we are open and happy to working with everyone. Everybody wins from self-love.

Training Course: DocuSpeech for Human Rights Education

Dates: 2-11 September 2019

Venue: Yerevan, Armenia

Eligible are 31 participants coming from: Armenia, Georgia, Germany, Luxembourg, Norway, Poland, Portugal

Application deadline: 12th July 2019

The project “DocuSpeech for Human Rights Education” is a 10 day Training Course that will take place in Yerevan, Armenia. During the activity educational video materials will be created to use in youth work to promote Human Rights Education

General Description

The project “DocuSpeech for Human Rights Education” is a 10 day Training Course that will take place in Yerevan, Armenia. It will gather 31 youth leaders, youth workers from Norway, Luxembourg, Portugal, Armenia, Georgia, Germany and Poland.

During the activity educational video materials will be created to use in youth work to promote Human Rights Education. As an outcome of the project the team and the participants will prepare the recommendations for the educators/trainers for using effectively video-making in human rights education.

The idea of the project is a follow-up of the TC “DocuSpeech against Hate Speech” (1-10 December, 2018, Luxembourg) which became a proof that film-making is a strategic tool for the youth workers as media tools are being used in the education of young people to increase understanding of peace and tolerance.

During the project 5 video materials and the session outlines were developed to use them in educational process. The sessions are already experienced effectively. Film and especially documentary films help youth workers to expand the world of their beneficiaries, introducing them to values, struggles, innovations, and beliefs beyond our daily experience.

Today, the short form documentary has filled a key role in both formal education and non-formal education. Using short documentary films in a meaningful and compelling way for young people is building social and emotional awareness on issues of intolerance, discrimination and Human Rights.

Objectives of the Project

• To develop the competences of the participants to produce educational video materials to use in youth work to promote Human Rights Education;
• To foster social inclusion especially of the young people with disabilities and fewer opportunities in general;
• To develop the competences of youth workers and youth leaders in making films in various formats;
• To develop non-formal framework for film-making as a tool for transformative learning;

• To promote understanding of the principles of democracy and participation and its influence on young people’s lives;
• To create audiovisual tools (will be uploaded also on the SALTO toolbox), with the concept of educational documentary;
• To support the field presence of the European Commission in order to promote the values behind the institution.
