Training Course: Countering the Radicalisation of Young People (German speaking training course)

Dates: 13-19 October 2019

Venue: Ev.Jugendbildungs- und Begegnungsstätte Hirschluch, Germany

Eligible are 20 participants coming from: Austria, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg

Application deadline: 20th September 2019

ATTENTION: German speaking seminar!

The fact that young people develop differently from social expectations is normal from a developmental and sociological point of view. During the training course we want to deal with the radical attitudes of young people.

General Description

Background: The fact that young people behave differently from social expectations is normal in terms of developmental psychology and sociology.

They question what is socially recognized, distance themselves from current social conditions, and embark on a search for their own identity and life plan. This questioning of the status quo by young people turns out to be more or less “radical”.

In the context of youth work, a distinction between security policy, preventive and educational aspects is all the more necessary. As with many other social issues, youth work must not be allowed to be taken up simply as a duty. Rather, youth work must clearly focus on its pedagogical work, which in principle is directed at all children and young people and young adults.

Develop an attitude: During the training, the experts work out and reflect on the causes, handling and effects of radicalisation tendencies among young people and agree on an attitude with which they want to counter them.

Learning methods: Participants should become familiar with methods and strategies that focus on communicating the basic common values of our society. The aim of these is to counteract radicalisation tendencies among young people and to avoid them.

Exchange experiences: The participants’ many years of experience from their work in the youth field make it possible to include different perspectives and problems. There will be room for the exchange of current developments, challenges and examples of good practice.

New project ideas can be developed and joint opportunities for action and shaping can be expanded.

Involving young people: The views and opinions of young people are essential and must be perceived first and foremost. That is why we follow an unusual training approach and will include it in our work processes and discussions in order to enable an ongoing dialogue at eye level between young people and specialists.

Youngsters grow up in a digitally connected world. What do these developments mean for youth work? Discover the concept of digital youth work, best practices, learn how to adapt youth work practices and how to proactively meet young people’s needs?

General Description

Young people grow up in a digitally connected world, where automation, machine learning and artificial intelligence are no longer futuristic concepts, but already a reality.

For young people, the difference between “online” and “offline” is increasingly blurred. Social media and internet usage have established themselves as important parts of youth culture.

  • What do these developments mean for youth work?

To be fair – youth workers don’t need to be technical experts when it comes to new media and technology. However, they should recognize that young people are growing up in a digital era and that they need support in navigating the online aspect of their lives.

During these 4 day conference youth workers from across Europe will be invited to learn, explore and exchange about the various forms and best practices of “digital youth work”.

Through panel discussion, keynote speeches, as well as workshops and project presentations at a fair, participants will benefit from many valuable contributions from field experts and from exchanges with other participants on a variety of topics including information and data literacy, communication through digital channels, problem solving by using digital tools, online safety and many more.

Ultimately, they will have the opportunity to discuss and formulate the needs and wishes of the sector for the digital youth work in presence of policy makers.

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.

Costs

 

This project is financed by the Erasmus+ Youth Programme.
