A Challenge for Youth
Start date: Jan 1, 2015,
End date: Jan 1, 2016
“A Challenge for Youth” will bring together 36 young people from 6 countries from EU to discuss and reflect together about the global challenges and global issues. We will organise this training seminar in Metz, France from 5-12 July 2015. Youth in the World is one of the eight priority fields of the new EU Youth Strategy. We share this point of view and believe that young people must be brought up as responsible global citizens, face with the challenges and be aware of the consequences of their day-to-day behaviors on global level. All the global issues affect not just European countries, affect to everybody in this world . The project will make youth leaders more sensitive to selected global challenges like environmental problems and climate change, poverty and social exclusion, human rights, intercultural dialogue, intergenerational solidarity etc. They will discover these topics through simulation games, exercises, activities for interaction with local community, discussions in small groups, plenary sessions, concrete actions workshops, etc. These topics require not only formal knowledge, but also the reflection about values and attitudes. That is why the non-formal education and principles will be used. Youth workers present at the training seminar will learn approaches how to reflect on what they can do in their every day life to behave more responsibly and to inspire also their local community to change their way of life. This skills and learned techniques will be expected to be applied amongst youth in the partner countries. We will also present young people the Erasmus+ programme and motivate them to organise their own projects on local or international level to support global development. After young people come back home, they should act as multipliers of their newly acquired knowledge and experience.
