“EUROPE ON AIR 3.0”
Methods for European Citizens
Start date: 01 Aug 2012,
European Citizenship through active participation? Our societies are based on its citizens. Especially in the current situation, facing times of crisis and if we want to build a Europe that citizens can relate to, we need to think of creating a culture of participation. Europe starts with the people in the local communities. Therefore active participation of young people in our societies is first of all a learning process where equality of opportunities has to be ensured, mutual understanding among young people promoted, intercultural learning and active citizenship should be cornerstones. Based on previously made experiences this TC is aimed to bring together trainers, youth workers and interested young people from programme countries and neighbouring partner countries to discuss the meaning of youth participation and volunteering in order to give new impulses for European Citizenship Education, to share possible ways to break the issue down for the practice in international youth work and to come up with creative ideas and support for practitioners in the international youth field. The TCwill provide the occasion to share experiences, to foster sustainable and equivalentpartnerships, to support capacity building, to contribute towards inventive projects by exploring new working methods and strategies, to improve the quality of future projects and to develop further activities. The methods used will be based on the principles and practise of non-formal education taking into account the needs, motivations and previous experiences of the participants. Further the TC will provide space for debate, individual and group reflection, and encourage exchange of best practices. Finally the TC will support the participants to explore the opportunities of the YiA programme for the work with young people, to establish new contacts and create stable partnerships among organisations and to create new projects.The TC will take place in Ključ, BiH, 7th – 16th of September 2012.
