Start date: Aug 1, 2012,
NGO „IUVENTA“, as hosting organization, will coordinate a 9-days TC, taking place in Vrnjacka Banja (Serbia) on the theme of Migration in Europe and its consequences to youth and youth work, planned to involve 31 participants from 15 different countries in Europe This project aims at the empowerment of members of various NGOs with knowledge about migration.Today the world has more than 200 million migrants and this number is increasing.Although we live in an age of greatest human mobility in known history, with recognition that migration is a key of feature of our contemporary world, it is still one of the least understood phenomena of our time. There are different triggers and causes, push and pull factors for migration which affects everyday life of all Europeans. There is forced migration and voluntary migration, different reasons and consequences of migration which have lead to new migration routes. All the world is affected by migration, and especially young people, who are one of the most mobile groups and the ones who determine how the future world will look like. For this it’s important that people working with young people would be aware of the causes, opportunities and consequences of migration and could support both – young emigrants and immigrants by creating opportunities and providing support these young people need.In this project we will talk about migration problem and reason for migration in all the world, but special part of training is reserve for migration problem in Europe.Through non-formal education methods (working groups, icebreakers, energizers, pedagogical games, field visits, debates, brainstorming, plenary sessions with presentations by experts and participants, sharing of knowledge and best practices, world café) and informal moments (thematic evenings), participants will be leaded to "see, judge and act" on the realities surrounding the Migration phenomenon.
