The presented project "Gamification" is a Training Course, which is addressed to youth workers and activists coming from eleven participating organizations, representing following countries: Great Britain (applicant organization), Italy, Macedonia, Greece, Croatia, Turkey and Poland. The activity will take place between April 1st and 9th 2015 (9 days) in Newcastle upon Tyne and will bring together a group of 24 participants. The main theme of the Training Course is to foster mutual understanding between young people coming from European and non-European countries, as well as, to contribute to further development of innovative and engaging methods to be used in the filed of youth work: in this case - LARP (live action role-play games). During the TC, participants will obtain new knowledge and skills connected to games and LARPs as a great and one-of-a-kind working method and educational tool, which can be extremely useful when working with young people and telling them about values such as democracy, culture, art, tolerance, Human Rights and mutual understanding. The TC will be entirely based on the concept and methods of non-formal education and will allow participants, with help and support of the trainers, to develop their own educational games, which can be later on used in their own work and among members of their local communities. As a result of the TC, we expect to equip the participants in new skills and know-how, which will be extremely useful in their every day work of sharing culture of peace, mutual understanding and respect: this time, not in a game, but in real life.
