A training course for young people who took part in European Solidarity Corps/Erasmus+ Youth Programme projects and want to share their European experiences with their peers.

General Description

You did a volunteering activity or took part in another European solidarity Corps activity, participated in a youth exchange or organised a youth initiative? Probably you gained lots of experiences and got to know Europe from an exciting perspective. Are you interested in staying involved and sharing your experiences with others?

If you can imagine telling other young people about your European experiences and encouraging them to try suchlike, we invite you warmly to become a EuroPeer! EuroPeers are young people who have already taken part in an European Solidarity Corps/Erasmus+ Youth Programme project. They share their experiences and inform other young people (their peers) about these opportunities and other ways to go abroad. This can be done in different ways and in the framework of various events.

During this international training course you will learn how to organise different types of EuroPeer events and how to share your European experience effectively with your peers.

You will attend workshops on:

  • opportunities for young people to participate in Europe
  • Mobility programmes in Europe
  • Project management and PR activities
  • Communicating the European idea.

You will also have time to develop your first own EuroPeer activity. At the end of the training you’ll get the chance to implement your activity (together with other participants) on the ENCORE event, a networking event for Belgian organizations working with international volunteers. You’ll have the opportunity to talk about a variety of topics related to European volunteering experiences and you’ll help the next generation of volunteers to have a better experience, thanks to your feedback!

During the training there will also be a Social Media team consisting of 4 people, they will be responsible for the whole social dimension of the training to the online world. If you’d like to gain media experiences, you can apply for this team.

It will give you a slightly different experience of the whole training. This team will be guided by a very enthusiastic youth leader.

Information about both the EuroPeer project and previous events organised by EuroPeers over the last years can be found here. Or check the Europeers International Facebook page online.

About “Sustainability in Action!” project:

With the project “Sustainability in Action!” we wish to tackle both complex issues – global environmental challenges and sustainable development and young people’s lack of social involvement and participation, and to implement concrete actions that youth workers can do to motivate young people get actively involved on a local level by increasing their environmental citizenship.

We aim at enhancing and developing youth worker’s competences to encourage, support and empower young people’s active involvement in solving environmental challenges and their active participation in a positive change towards a more sustainable society.

The specific objectives of the project are to:

  • create awareness in regards to the current environmental challenges and explore interconnectivity of those challenges with other topics on a global level (i.e. health, migration, economy);
  • explore the topic of youth participation and ways of attracting young people to actively participate on a local level;
  • build youth workers’ capacity to work more effectively with young people on the topics of eco-related actions and sustainable ways of living;
  • explore environmental educational methods and equip participants with non-formal learning tools addressing the topics;
  • share experience, methods and practices;
  • create new successful and creative partnerships;
  • promote Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps as a tool for active youth involvement and participation;
  • sensitize relevant stakeholders on the significance of environmental challenges on all levels.

We envisage the following thematic modules in the training:

1. Environmental challenges (what do we face today – pollution, climate change, social injustice and inequity, climate migrants and refugees, lack of resources, etc.) and alternative systems for sustainable living (sustainable communities, degrowth movement, permaculture, sustainable consumption, sustainable transport, etc.).

2. Active youth participation and green citizenship – concepts and ways of involving and engaging young people be active on a local level, encouraging them to create and implement initiatives.

3. Sharing of experience, strengths and challenges youth workers face in the different countries as way as solutions to overcome them.

4. Practical tools and instruments – gathering, sharing, trying out tools that will be used with the young people after the project.

5. Creation of partnerships and development of ideas for international youth mobility action and local youth initiatives.
