EnAct - Empowerment through Nature, Authentic Communication & Theatre
Start date: Aug 1, 2014, End date: Dec 31, 2015 PROJECT  FINISHED 

“EnACT - Empowerment through Nature, Authentic Communication & Theatre” training course aims to develop the competences of youth workers to engage and empower young people to become responsible citizens through enhanced communication skills, conflict resolution techniques, entrepreneurial thinking and active participation in their lives, work and communities.There is a huge need for young people to be more empowered to realise their dreams, to turn their ideas into actions and to play an active part in the life of their communities and societies. Youth workers, volunteers and trainers need more creative and innovative methods and effective techniques to engage young people more actively. With our training course we seek to address the need of empowering youth through engaging and effective non-formal and informal learning methods. We are ready to introduce different methods to address these issues such as communication development, conflict resolution and effective team-work. During our training course we are going to use and introduce non-formal and informal educational tools with a special attention to outdoor training elements and theatrical methods. With this training course we seek to improve the level of key competences and skills of youth workers, such as sense of initiative and entrepreneurship and multilingualism, in order to improve the quality of their work and the activities they organise, and to reach further into the european dimension of youth work. At the end of the training course, our participants will be motivated to participate more actively in the lives of their organisations, develop more projects with and for young people and will be better equipped to provide a higher quality of youth work delivery due to their experience and use of different innovative & effective methods. The Training course will be based on an interactive and participative approach. The processes of learning from each other and learning by doing will be crucial. The training course will stimulate creativity, communication and active participation. The venue place of the project is Forres, Moray, Scotland. It is an 8 day training course with 24 participants and 4 trainers/facilitators/experts/logistic assistants from the following countries: Hungary, Spain, United Kingdom, Turkey, Ireland, Czech Republic, Germany and Portugal. During the training methods of non-formal and informal education will be used, such as individual, pair and group work, creative workshops, theatre methods, simulation and situation games, problem solving and debate exercises, presentations and discussions, indoor and outdoor elements.
