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.

The Sustainability Academy is a 4-week online training in sustainable youth work. Using Design Thinking, we will focus on sustainable development principles, social entrepreneurship and circular economy and learn to apply those concepts in youth work.

General Description

The Sustainability Academy is a 50h online training focused on sustainability in youth work. Over 4 weeks, the participants will be invited to use Design thinking methodology to identify the challenges they face and elaborate with young people:

  • climate change,
  • abuse of the environmental recourses,
  • consumption,
  • social injustice and others.

With Fridays for Future young people express already their disagreement to how older generations approach the issues. Is it possible to co-create with them long-term actions, where all generations could get involved in common strategy?

During the course the participants will be assisted with 3 coaches experienced in non-formal education and Design Thinking as well as 3 experts in areas of Sustainable development, Circular Economy and Social Entrepreneurship. Together they will explore potential solutions for more sustainable lifestyles and communities. Online character of the training will allow the participants to stay connected to their local realities and yet have a chance to check it with international colleagues.

The main objectives are:

  • Understand current environmental and social challenges and the way young people approach them (5R: reuse, reduce, recycle, rethink, refuse)
  • Rethink the current way of doing: prepare young people to co-create more circular, sustainable world
  • Identify already existing tools used in youth work and community work in Luxembourg and Europe (incl virtual visits and meetings to the projects)
  • Co-create potential solutions that can be multiplied on local and European level
  • Learn Design Thinking process by applying it to solve concrete challenge

The participants will have a chance to interact with others via synchronized meetings on an online platform (Zoom) as well as explore their own communities and report the results using common online tools, like Padlet, Miro, Mural.

The overall course time will be divided between plenary sessions (keynotes, input sessions, virtual visits or the projects in Luxemburg), small group work (assisted by coaches and experts), individual learning (research and testing) and online social actions (e.g. yoga class, zero-waste cooking, online concert).

Training Course: Training of Trainers for European Erasmus+ Youth Projects 2020/2021

Dates: 18 September 2020 – 26 June 2021

Venue: Portugal, Germany, Italy

Eligible are 24 participants coming from: Belgium – FL, Belgium – FR, Bulgaria, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland

Application deadline: 15th June 2020

ATTENTION: COVID 19 Announcement: Please note that we are determined and hopeful to conduct our Training of Trainers in 2020, even in light of the ongoing Corona/ Covid-19 crisis. The dates of the residential training courses might however be subject of change and will be adjusted, if needed. Furthermore, online learning might potentially play a more prominent role in this edition of ToT.

The major aim of this long-term training course is to train trainers who have the competences and the motivation to contribute to the improvement of the quality of projects within the Erasmus+ Youth Programme of the European Union.

General Description

This Training of Trainers (ToT) lasts ca. one year and consists of:

  • three residential seminars
  • an international training project you design and run with some other participants
  • ongoing e-learning
  • ongoing mentoring with one of the course trainers as your mentor
  • learning commitments

The dates for the three residential seminars are:

Seminar 1: 18 September – 27 September 2020 in Portugal;
Semina 2: 15 – 24 January 2021 in Germany;
Semina 3: 19 – 26 June 2021 in Italy;

This course requires a considerable time investment from the participants: in total you should plan at least 55 days:

  • 28 seminar days (including travel)
  • 12 days overall for the training project (preparatory work, prep meeting and the course itself)
  • 15 days (on average 1-2 days per month) for following the personal learning commitments, the online work, peer learning, mentor talks etc.

Within this ToT-course participants have the chance to further develop their competences as a trainer. In line with the European Training Strategy in the frame of Erasmus+ Youth Programme the ToT-course considers the following competences to be essential when working as a non-formal education trainer within the Youth Programme:

  • The competence to understand and facilitate individual and group learning processes.
  • The competence to design educational programmes.
  • The competence to direct one’s own learning (Learning to Learn)
  • The competence to co-operate successfully in teams.
  • The competence to communicate meaningfully with others.
  • Intercultural competence.
  • Being civically engaged.

Participants enter the ToT-course with various levels of prior experience as trainer as well as competences developed – consequently, the learning needs of participants are different. The educational approach implemented in the ToT-course intends to allow for these different learning needs to be identified and pursued. At the core of this process is the competence of the participant to direct his/her own learning. The group as a source for peer learning and the trainers as facilitators of these learning processes are essential pillars of this approach.

Participants are expected:

  • To have been already involved at least three times in a team of trainers designing, implementing and evaluating a training course in the framework of Non-Formal Education.
  • To have had international experience in the youth work field with a function of responsibility (not only as a participant) – organising international youth projects, leading a youth exchange, mentoring volunteers, etc.

  • To have the potential and need to develop training competences and act after the course as a trainer for European Erasmus+ Youth Programme and/or for training courses organised by the National Agencies of the Erasmus+ Youth Programme.
  • To show initiative and willingness to self-direct their own learning process.
  • To be prepared to reflect on and question their own beliefs and approaches as trainers.
  • To be able to run training courses in English.

Participating countries: Belgium (FL), Belgium (FR), Bulgaria, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland
