The training activity will consist of a range of sessions and activities: - Sessions to learn about the activities of European youth organisations on issues related to food and agriculture, with special focus on youth groups from neighbouring countries and Bulgaria, - Run content workshops explaining some of the political challenges facing us in Europe and the World, related to food and agriculture, including green economy and jobs, - Run practical sessions related to taking action for better food production, for example workshop on making 'seed bombs’, visiting organic farms, etc, to give practical skills for positive action, - Skill-share sessions on working with young people, supporting local volunteer groups, developing diversity in groups, and on innovative campaigning and effective fundraising and project management, - 'Open space' planning sessions to define and make action plans together for the future, in particular in terms of 2015 European Year of Development. The training programme will consist of a variety of non formal learning techniques, including participant led skills-share, audio-visuals, small group work, visits, etc. All participants will build skills and experience covering all the themes of project, and have an opportunity to build specific skills in: fundraising, campaigning and project management. The event will be run on a horizontal basis with all participants and partners taking an active role to lead sessions, make decisions and help with the running of the logistics.
