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).

Participation in the whole course is required to be able to receive the certificate.

Training Course Youth@Work. Building Ecoliteracy: Preparing European young people for the green labour market

Dates: 5-11 October 2020

Venue: Santander, Spain

Eligible are 30 participants coming from: Austria, Belgium – FL, Belgium – FR, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Republic of North Macedonia, Serbia, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, United Kingdom

Application deadline: 6th July 2020

The training course aims to prepare and inspire professionals working with and for young people to bring an ecological focus in their labour market orientation projects.

General Description

The training course, proposed by the Youth@Work Partnership on Youth Employability and Entrepreneurship of Erasmus+ National Agencies, aims to prepare and inspire professionals working with and for young people to bring an ecological focus in their labour market orientation projects.

In order to equip young people for the green labour market, we are organising a training course for professionals who work for and with young people. With this training, we want to prepare the participants to guide the young people they work with along their employability path, with a special focus on those competences that they will need to acquire for fulfilling the requirements of the increasing number of green jobs available.

Context:

According to the European Commission: ‘It is easy to consider green jobs as the preserve of eco-industries. After all, employment in this sector has grown by 20% since 2000 and now provides 4.2 million jobs. But the growing importance of sustainability has reached all sectors. Many industries have realised that investing in resource efficiency, energy efficiency, renewable energy, waste and water management actually saves them money by being less reliant on primary materials and imports.’

In order to be prepared to fulfil the demanding duties of a green job, it’s not only technical and scientific knowledge that is needed, but also eco-literacy, eco-consciousness, creativity, and many other traits and competences which are not taught or trained in formal education institutions. This leaves young people unprepared to fulfil the requirements needed for the growing green labour sector.

Our project aims to fill this gap.

Objectives:

  • Train 30 professionals (youth workers, trainers, youth leaders/change-makers and policy-makers) on guiding the young people they work with along their employability path, with a special focus on competences needed in the green labour sector;
  • Analyse the current trends of the labour market and explore the new competences that will be needed to cover the demands of the future green job market;
  • Provide participants with a wider understanding of the ecological systems and raise awareness of the urge for preparing young generations for future challenges;
  • Promote youth work and non-formal education as tools to develop the competences that young people will need in the future green labour market;
  • Provide professionals and young people with methods and tools in order to improve youth employability and inspire green innovation;
  • Create a network of youth professionals having a specific interest in and motivation to further cooperate on initiatives connected with the green labour market.

Methods:

We will use a combination of formal and non-formal learning methods, the non-formal ones being the dominant methods. The methodologies that we will apply will require a high involvement from participants.

It will be experiential learning, as well, meaning that participants will experience themselves some of the methodologies and techniques that they then will be able to apply with the young people they work with.

We have planned enough reflection time for the learning to sink in, as well as feedback time for the trainers to be able to adapt the programme to the participants’ needs as required.

This MOOC is about how to bring the global education dimension in youth work, using POP culture as an element to mobilize young people and connect them to the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals)

General Description

The general idea of this MOOC is to bring the global education dimension into youth work by exploring and learning how to use the POP culture as an element of mobilizing young people and connecting them to the Sustainable development goals.

You may ask yourself: Why global education? Why pop culture?

Today we live in an interdependent and changing world, filled with challenges and opportunities. To assist young people in understanding and tackling these global challenges, we need to provide opportunities for the youth to learn about and explore global issues.

Global Education does not provide the answers to all the questions of our time, but it does offer the potential to support young people to become conscious global citizens who question the world and are committed to their ideals.

Young people today consider popular culture to be ‘cool’. We define the pop culture as a relationship associated with young people everyday interests of music, art, media, internet, TV, radio and fashion – it offers creativity, challenges, participation and engagement.

When you see a Lady Gaga music video, do you think of it as a teachable material? Probably not. But pop culture is a useful tool that can help get youth interested and engaged in learning, and even offer resources for better understanding global issues.

Seminar. Youth centres of the future. Luxembourg

Seminar: Youth centres of the future

Dates: 18-19 June 2020

Venue: Luxembourg

Eligible are 20 participants coming from: Austria, Belgium – DE, Belgium – FL, Belgium – FR, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Republic of North Macedonia, Romania, Serbia, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, United Kingdom

Application deadline: 10th April 2020

ATTENTION: DUE TO THE IMPACT OF COVID-19 THIS ACTIVITY HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. APPLICANTS WILL BE INFORMED OF NEW DATES ONCE CONFIRMED!

The aim is to foster exchange and to brainstorm together if the orientation of youth policy and youth work in the setting of youth centres is still tailored to the needs and interests of young people.

General Description

The everyday lives of young people are fast changing. At the same time the youth centres in Luxembourg have existed for over two decades, and there is a possibility, that the needs of young people are developing faster than, and not necessary in accordance with the concept, architecture and equipment of the youth centres.

Therefore, it is essential to analyse on a regular basis if this is the case, and if so, further develop and adapt the concept of the youth centres.

Through a participative approach we would like to gather policy makers, youth workers, and researchers to discuss what the youth centres of the future could look like, what could be the role of the youth workers, how we can reach out to young people, what the impact of digitalisation could be, and if the findings and needs are different for small, medium and large municipalities.

The objectives of this 2-day seminar are:

  • Present the challenges to adapt the youth centres to the fast changing needs and interest of young people in the view of youth workers, researchers and policy makers
  • Make an inventory of different models of youth centres
  • Elaborate possible alternative concepts and approaches for locally embedded youth centres
