Training Course: Dialogue Above Judgment

Venue: Bakuriani, Georgia

Eligible are 27 participants coming from: Armenia, Croatia, Denmark, Georgia, Moldova, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Ukraine

Application deadline: 20th September 2019

Training course aims to give youth workers skills and competences regarding the topic of intercultural dialogue by understanding of existing problems and its causes, exploring existing lines of tensions/conflicts in Europe and neighboring countries

General Description

Processes of the globalization, social-economic conditions in neighboring countries, and conflicts in developing countries force thousands of people to migrate in Europe for sake of finding shelter and better living conditions there.

It caused mixing of various people and nationalities, coexistence of people with different backgrounds; however, this process also led to conflicts among those groups, judging people by their backgrounds, judgment based mainly on stereotypes and prejudices. All these reasons interrupt process of developing civil societies within states.

Each conflict situation can be multiplied in future and lead us to dangerous situations in various countries. Thus, the main aim of the training course is to increase level of awareness of youth workers, to give useful tools, teach new methodologies and activities that will help them to make their local realities better, to lead their societies change towards peaceful civil society.

Nowadays we often face discrimination based on religion, race, nationality etc. Europe needs more cohesive and inclusive societies, to promote common European values, foster social integration, enhance intercultural understanding and a sense of belonging to a community and to prevent violent radicalization. Our Erasmus+ training course is an effective instrument to promote the inclusion of people with disadvantaged backgrounds, including newly arrived migrants.

For above-mentioned reasons, main aims of the project are to build civil societies with tolerance, to create a space where people with different backgrounds will live peacefully. Thus, this investment in knowledge, skills and competences will benefit individuals, institutions, organizations and society as a whole by contributing to growth and ensuring equity, prosperity and social inclusion in Europe and beyond.

  • Understanding of existing problems and its causes, exploring existing lines of tensions/conflicts in Europe.

“ToDAY: Developing digitAl Youth work” project aims to promote quality youth work through supporting open and innovative practices and by helping youth workers understand digital youth work and develop their capacity on digital youth work.

General Description

Social media sites, online games, video-sharing sites and gadgets such as iPods, iPads and mobile phones are now part of the culture of young people. They have permeated young lives in such a degree, that it is hard to believe that these technologies hardly existed less than a decade ago.

Today, young people may come of age and struggle for autonomy and identity, as their predecessors did. However, they do so in the midst of new worlds of communication, friendship and self-expression and it is based on the use of digital media. Digital Media and Technology has transformed how we teach and learn. The learning and self-development process do not always begin with teachers, they are also initiated by the learner, or supported by a youth worker. Digital media and technology it can’t be anything but part of youth workers’ training and capacity.

Young people in Europe spend an increasing amount of their time consuming digital media and (video streaming, messaging, networking, blogging, gaming, etc.). Some of the problems that young people are facing today are directly connected to digital media and especially social media, such as pressures of 24/7 social networking, hate speech online, cyber-bullying, internet and online games addiction.

Unfortunately in almost all European countries, there are cases that young people were even led to suicide because of cyber-bullying or hate speech online or various, serious internet addictions. All young people today need technological skills, social media literacy and an agile attitude towards technology in their future work and daily life, and this should be encouraged by youth workers.

“ToDAY: Developing digitAl Youth work” project aims to promote quality youth work through supporting open and innovative practices and by helping youth workers understand digital youth work and develop their capacity on digital youth work. It will support digital youth work in a local, national, regional and European level.

The working team of the TC consists of 2 experienced trainers and 1 facilitator.

The project’s objectives are:

  • To familiarise with and better understand digital youth work approaches and to be prepared to introduce digital approaches to their youth work practice. Youth workers will be able to support young people to develop the skills, competences and courage to actively shape digital technologies
  • To identify innovative practices in both delivering digital youth work and upskilling youth workers’ digital competences and to exchange good examples of how digital tools are used in youth work in Europe
  • To develop youth workers’ skills, competences and knowledge on digitalization through training that meets their needs and the needs of their communities and young people they work with
  • To create a network of youth workers from several European countries and support participating organisations to provide youth workers with tools, methods and practices for understanding digital youth work
  • To practice and be able to use in their daily work with young people the Erasmus+ Virtual Exchange project of the EU
  • To create space for making new contacts, creating new networks and exploring Erasmus+ Youth opportunities to develop digital youth work in future

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.
