Greenspiration ON!
Start date: Jul 1, 2015, End date: Mar 31, 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

"Greenspiration ON!" is 8 days long Training Course that was realized in Brno, Czech Republic, in September 2015, involving 30 participants from program and partner countries NGOs: Czech Republic, Hungary, Latvia, Italy, Armenia, Georgia. Participants are youth workers, volunteers, peer educations - working with groups, working mainly with young people. The main goal of the project was to provide innovative techniques and methods of creative recycling and new ways of dissemination of results. Our partner organization ReCreativity has expertise in creative recycling and we from Be International identified the need of new elements in youth work - as our partners from the network keep communicating their development and results. The basic idea of the training course is not just to provide the creative recycling techniques itself to the target group (youth workers, volunteers, peer educators, etc..) but also to involve media and make best practice tutorial videos in order to reach a big mass of people through internet. After watching the tutorial videos anyone will be able to make the same object at home regardless of financial or geographical background or place of residence. The techniques can be perfectly used as well in working with young people, adults or children - since the practice, creativity and creation is such a process that can be easily reffered to in developing and improving life-skills. The wide range of activities contain lectures, discussions, creative recycling workshops, media workshops, fieldwork, outdoor activities, sharings, debriefings, reflections, team building activities, individual and group creation processes. We use the method of learning by experience in creative recycling that is combined with media, expression through the camera. Due to the activities participants will develop life skills such as communication, social and digital competences, learning to learn. After the training course, the participants will be more sensitive towards topics such as sustainability, environmental protection, green solutions, innovative elements, and will use the inquired techniques in their everyday work and everyday life. Spreading the tutorial videos on the internet and in our network we will reach more than 6000 people with the idea of creative recycling and sustainability.
