„Gamification – Innovative Solutions for Social Issues” was a 7-days Training Course for 32 youth workers and youth leaders from programme countries (Poland, Croatia, Romania, Bulgaria, Italy, Malta, Lithuania, United Kingdom and Czech Republic), designed to develop operational capacities of engaged organisations by learning innovative methods of youth social activation.
The project explored gamification as a method of youth work, designed to engage youth in solving problems of their local communities. Social engagement of youth will is expected in turn to leverage youth position in their local communities, and thus prevent social and economic exclusion.
During the project youth workers and youth leaders discussed ways of engaging youth for taking actions for their communities, exchanged good practices and discussed possible boundaries of engaging young people in social actions. Participants learnt also principles of gamification – methodology of social engagement using elements of game mechanics and will develop methods of using the knowledge and skills in youth work.
The project initiated network of organisations using gamification in youth work (also by creation of “IDEA-KIT”), able to support each other and multiply good practices in different social contexts in Europe.
