Training course: Explaining Europe

Partners from: Erasmus+ Programme countries

Dates: Summer/Autumn 2015

Summary of the project:

Project aims to give the participants the opportunity to learn how to design and run not only local, but also national and European activities aiming to promote EU awareness among young people and how to tackle different issues that Europe faces today.

First of all participants will learn how to motivate young people to take part in such activities, how to “explain Europe” to youth. They will learn how to “provoke” young people to foster processes of building up of their European awareness, their sense of belonging to the EU, and sharing future and responsibilities with other young people and citizens from the whole continent. The project will also cover topics such as active participation, structure and decision making process in EU, communication with youth, non-formal education.

Expected results of the project are ideas and solutions regarding enhancing EU awareness among European youth.

The 7 days residential training course will be hosted in Lower Silesia, Poland and will include 30 participants from 10 Programme countries.

Each partner organisation should send 3 youth workers, young leaders or junior trainers.

Training course: European Peace Leaders

Partners from: Erasmus+ Programme countries and Western Balkans

Dates: Summer/Autumn 2015

Summary of the project:

Project “European Peace Leaders” includes two activates which will be hosted in Poland and Serbia and will include youth workers and young leaders from the EU and Western Balkans region. Project aims to contribute to capacities of the youth organisations from involved countries to work on peace building, conflict transformation, inclusion of minority youth and refugees from conflict areas, promotion of tolerance, fight against stereotypes and prejudices, and conflict prevention.

The first activity will take place in Krzyżowa, Poland, which is an symbolic place of reconciliation between Poland and Germany and a youth meeting centre. The second activity will be hosted in Belgrade, Serbia, in the Western Balkans region. Each partner organisation will send 3 participants to both activities.

The first activity will be concentrated on building knowledge and experience about past conflict resolutions, examples of reconciliation and dealing with the past in Europe and worldwide (based on extensive experience of Krzyżowa as a centre of reconciliation and TDM2000 Polska’s staff, involved in reconciliation projects for more than 10 years), giving participants INCLUSION tools and skills.

The second activity will provide participants with conflict PREVENTION tools such as intercultural learning skills, and methods useful in anti-discrimination actions and fighting against prejudice. Both activities will bring new tools, methods and ideas which will be shared with other youth workers and organisations from all around Europe.

We are looking for partners from EU member states and Western Balkans. Each partner should send 3 participants per each Training Course.

Training course: Active against Discrimination

Partners from: Erasmus+ Programme countries

Dates: Summer/Autumn 2015

Summary of the project:

Project aims at preparing youth workers and young leaders to work in the field of antidiscrimination and attitudes of individuals and groups to promote greater understanding and equality in their societies.

Participants will explore the situation of groups particularly endangered to discrimination. The educational process will also introduce elements of anti-discriminatory workshops which will help to self-evaluate and analyse the habituated attitudes and beliefs towards particular groups and individuals which are at risk of discrimination.

This training course will consist of two modules – first one will analyse and look more closely at the situation of groups at risk of discrimination and their relation with the mainstream society:

  • MAINSTREAM SOCIETY AND MINORITIES (ethnic, religious, sexual, etc.)
  • MAINSTREAM SOCIETY AND NEWCOMERS (migrants, refugees, asylum seekers)
  • MAINSTREAM SOCIETY AND GENDER ISSUES

Second part will introduce core of the anti-discriminatory education – main topics of the anti-discriminatory workshop will be focused on stereotypes, prejudices and phenomenon of discrimination as such. Participants will explore the roots and discuss the possible solutions to discussed problems. They will learn and discuss how adequately react to the discriminatory situations in their surroundings – either based on their experience, or in the witnessed situations.

Overall, during this training, participants will discuss the reasons and mechanisms of exclusion and discrimination of particular groups from the mainstream society, the mechanisms of stereotyping and prejudices. We will analyse the relations between the minority and majority groups and practice different methods to react to discrimination. Participants therefore will be equipped with knowledge and skills to discover discriminatory situations in public spaces and react to them, as well as to multiply this in their local communities.

The 7 days residential training course will be hosted in Lower Silesia, Poland and will include 30 participants from 10 Programme countries.

Each partner organisation should send 3 youth workers, young leaders or junior trainers.
