The Training course “Wemen” provides visual & artistic competences to youth workers and youth leaders to support and motivate the cause of gender equity and equality through the use of creative digital tools.

General Description

Gender equality has a universally recognized benefit for people. However, our visual references (media, advertisements, movies, …), are still full of sexist stereotypes and vividly illustrate the depth of stereotypes permeating our contemporary civilization. Yet everyone have much to gain equality of all people, genders and sexes.

Our workshop in Segovia, Spain, from the 22th to the 28th of March 2020, will invite youth workers and artists to lend their support to involve youth for gender equity. We have chosen to address this topic through the use of creative digital tools because images are a powerful tool for reflection and call to action, and digital media has the widest impact reach.

Objectives:

This project will offer professionals and young artists from different European contexts a privileged opportunity to unite, in Spain, their perception and their actions in favor of mobilization in favor of gender equality. This action-training also has the ambition of:

  • Gathering equal proportions of young workers, visual artists, gender activists and theorists from different parts of Europe so they can compare their personal and professional experiences on the influence of visual arts in the perception of Genders.
  • Making them produce webcomics that illustrate their learning outcomes visually and digitally, they are easily transmitted to the largest number of people.
  • Getting them together to develop reflection and new training tools to address these social issues with the youth and their community.
  • Encouraging them to form networks of international contacts and practice other languages suitable for developing their personal and professional skills;
  • Providing new competences to youth workers and youth leaders to support and manage work with diverse young groups, as well as competences to foster gender equality, social inclusion, European values and active youth participation;
  • Developing strategic plans for action in forms of follow-up activities that will be run by participants with the support of partner organisations back in their local communities and countries.

Participants profile

General Description

This training course will bring together motivated youth workers, youth leaders and peer-to-peer educators from youth organizations from different European countries and Turkey in order to develop their intercultural learning and dialogue competences (knowledge, skills, attitudes) that would enable them to become effective multipliers of intercultural dialogue at their communities with young people.

In this way they would be more equipped to deal with growing tensions in the society by making young people more respectful and empathetic towards people from different cultures.

  • Becoming more aware about own identity, culture, stereotypes and prejudiced behaviour patterns and realizing how it affects our youth work
  • Realizing the role and potential of us as youth workers to make positive changes in regards to greater understanding, more respect, solidarity and active tolerance at our communities by using NFL approach
  • Developing skills of youth workers to design and facilitate concrete NFL tools for young people that develop their intercultural learning competences, appreciation of diversity and promote solidarity and inclusion
  • Planning and implementing concrete follow-up activities/actions that promote D&I in local community with young people (also excluded young people)

By involving in this project, it is crucial that participants realize that we expect their active involvement not only during the training, but also in preparation activities and also follow-up activities.

Profile of participants

To achieve the objectives of the training, we will pay special attention to make sure that suitable participants are selected. First of all, we will review the participants delegated by the partner organizations.

Are you a youth worker searching for your future way and inspiration in the field of youth work? Do you need a break to reflect on your past, presence and plan your future steps as a youth worker? Come to find it in Horizon! 10 days TC + 2 travel days

General Description

From time to time we need the moments to take a break, look around and reflect on the direction we are heading to. We ask ourselves existential questions like: Is this really MY way? Does it make any sense what I do? Am I doing something which I like, helps the world and makes use of my best abilities?

We prepared this training course based on our long-term experience in training youth workers. We see that there are always some difficult moments for youth workers, when their motivation decreases. It happens while they feel burned out, while they’re questioning their abilities and skills. At that time, they don’t know what the right way should be. We believe that this period is very natural, and one way of getting over it is to break, ask and search.

During Horizon, You will have an Opportunity to:

  • (re)find and (re)name your professional vision and values
  • set up next steps for professional and personal journey
  • develop competence to work with values as youth workers

What will you Experience?

  • Connection with the place and group through stories, walks, and value-based methods
  • Reflection of your professional career, your personal and professional values
  • Focus on your body through everyday Yoga sessions, focusing and mindfulness techniques, walking in nature
  • Strengthening the skills necessary for pilgrimage
  • Five days of pilgrimage in beautiful landscape of Adršpach region

  • Five days and nights of sleeping, eating, and living outside in nature
  • Creation of your own Ikigai through nonverbal techniques, creative workshops, individual and group reflections

Training Course Trees that are rooted: Nurturing young people’s inner nature

Dates: 14-22 March 2020

Venue: Litomysl, Czech Republic

Eligible are 25 participants coming from: Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Germany, Greece, Italy, Lithuania, Romania, Spain

Application deadline: 28th January 2020

Young people, just like trees, need to be well rooted in order to thrive. This training will offer practices and concepts to cultivate young people’s inner nature, self-awareness and self-embrace so that they will be strongly rooted in themselves.

General Description

The idea of the project “Trees that are rooted”

Being youth workers, we observe how the situation among young people in the whole Europe is changing. Some young people are struggling with unemployment, many young people become inactive citizens, or fall into depression.

Moreover, the big wave of refugees towards Europe the past couple of years highlights the risk for social exclusion, the human rights violation and the lack of intercultural dialogue.

In addition, several reports and researches explain that youth are drawn into violent radicalization in their search for identity, a purpose and a meaningful place in society because they feel injustice and frustration about their exclusion and vulnerability. In this context, our work as youth workers becomes essential to address the situation of youth.

We decided to name our project “Trees that are rooted” with a vision to train youth workers to nurture the young people holistically. This is because we believe that young people need to be rooted firstly in themselves, secondly in their community and last in the whole world, just like the trees do.

This is why our project encloses two activities/training courses for youth workers:

The 1st training course “Trees that are rooted – Nurturing young people’s inner nature – 14-22 March 2020 in Czech Republic focuses young people’s inner nature, self-awareness and self-embracement.

The 2nd training course “Trees that are rooted – Embracing outer nature” – October/November 2020 in Cyprus. This training course advances on the solid “rooting” in the previous training and extending it into the being with others, engaging in meaningful peer relationships, belonging to the world, manifesting the gifts of the inner nature (identity) in the world.

About the first training course “Nurturing young people’s inner nature”, March, Czech Republic

Objectives of the training course:

  • To explore the reality of hard to reach youth and the reasons that drag them to radicalization, focusing more on their search for identity
  • To enhance the understanding of youth workers regarding the developmental stages of young people, as well as the needs, opportunities and risks in each stage.
  • To explore innovative theories and educational approaches that youth workers can use in order to improve their work with hard to reach young people.
  • To develop their skills in working with hard to reach youth.
  • To increase youth worker’s motivation and inspiration to work further with youth, especially the ones who are hard to reach and at risk of radicalization
  • To develop sustainable follow-up actions targeting hard to reach young people that youth workers will implement in the period of 3 months after the training.

Topics covered

  • Ecocentric-development: understanding the reality of the young people
  • Emotional intelligence: knowing and working with my own feelings
  • Mindfulness: maintaining an inner peace
  • Nature connection: deepening the relation with ourselves and the earth
  • Self-awareness: Knowing my values
  • Positive Psychology: Living a meaningful life
  • Self-compassion: embracing the self

Methods applied:

  • Work with peers (we will be sharing, talking, listening, empowering)
  • Self-reflection (time alone thinking, assessing, writing and planning)
  • Nature based activities (being and working outside in the nature)
  • Experiential learning (we will be playing, doing, testing, analyzing the experiences and listening to different perspectives)
  • Daily rituals (we will repeat every day in the morning and afternoon)
  • Planting trees,
  • Interaction with local youth,
  • Arts, theatre (creating, playing, having fun, laughing)
