Training Course “Youthful Europe” – Western Balkan edition
3-8 October 2016 Pristina, KOSOVO
The activity provides youth work practitioners with a space to explore and critically reflect different approaches towards Europe through identity, values and active participation, and to promote the notion of Europe as an opportunity.
The programme encourages participants to discover answers to the following questions: How do we, and the young people we work with, perceive Europe? What are the realities of young people in different parts of Europe? How are our personal identities and values reflected in the European level? How can we find new and creative ways to practise active citizenship in Europe? A specific emphasis in the training course is on transferability of methods to address the topic in participants’ local youth work contexts.
Aim and objectives
The aim of the learning programme is to provide youth work practitioners with a possibility to explore and critically reflect on different approaches towards Europe through three of its constitutive elements: identity, values and active participation and further inspire young people to see Europe as an opportunity.
- to provide the participants with an opportunity to express and review their thoughts and feelings of Europe;
- to discover diverse perceptions on Europe and concrete realities of youth work and young people in European communities;
- to develop insight on personal identity and values and develop understanding on how they are reflected in the European context;
- to deepen the understanding of what means to be an active citizen in Europe and stimulate creative approaches of practising it;
