Training course "ImpACT Your World"
Start date: 20 Dec 2011,

In today’s reality it is hard to imagine a young person with no access to Internet, with no profile on Facebook, Twitter, or other social networks. Also, keeping in mind what is happening in the Middle East, the Internet is now playing a key role in spreading information from the human rights implementation “battle fields”. As new media develops rapidly, we plan to use the “ImpACT your world” training course (TC) to make sure that youth workers and civil society can benefit from this new phenomenon in terms of promoting and campaigning online for ideas that they dedicate their time and life to. The TC will bring together 30 young people, youth workers and volunteers from 13 different countries (Slovakia, Croatia, Armenia, Belgium, Georgia, Belarus, Moldova, Norway, Malta, Serbia, Germany, Finland, France) and will give them practical skills on the effective use of new media technologies and social networks in their work. They will share their success stories of using new media and will obtain new skills and ideas from the other participants of how to be successful with the use of new media technologies. The participants will have chance to meet with leading bloggers from Armenia and will discover how the topics such as human rights, equality, volunteering, environment and the rule of law are covered in the Armenian and in the global blogosphere. The objectives of this training course are, but not limited to: Using media literacy and new media as a powerful tool in youth work Practicing working with media in group context and to use media for process-based youth work Broadening youth workers’ experience of different kinds of media form and content to encourage innovation & creativityThe methodologies applied for this training course will be based on non-formal education, experiential learning and active participation and self-organisation of the participants. This project itself will have a blog which will be updated before, during and after the event.
