Corso di Formazione “Empowering Youth Fighting Exclusion”
22/04/2014 - 30/04/2014
Social exclusion features similar characteristics in many European countries and is determined by a multi-layer deprivation of basic human rights. The most relevant forms of exclusion for young people are limited access to education, lack of a secure and safe living environment, unemployment, the restricted opportunities to influence political decision making and few possibilities to participate in social and cultural life. As a result visible and invisible social borders exist in all European societies. That is why, the seminar aims to provide a platform for those working with young people to take part in a structured dialogue about their conceptual understanding of root-causes, reasons and consequences of social exclusion and to share their working methods on youth inclusion with each other. In detail the objectives of the seminar are: – To share the understanding on the nature of exclusion based on the realities of young people living in Europe, – To engage into a mutual learning process on concepts of youth inclusion and empowerment – To share practices of inclusion work with youth workers and social activists from several European countries – To create needs-based youth inclusion projects for young people with fewer opportunities The methodological approach that will be applied by the team of facilitators is based on principles of self-directed learning, non-formal education and will be accompanied by a range of theater techniques as empowerment tools for young people. The seminar “Empowering Youth – Fighting Exclusion” will be organised for 30 youth and social workers from SEE partner and EU countries. It will take place in Pristina, Kosovo, from 22.04.2014 to 30.04.2014. We are looking for 3 motivated youngsters: available places left: 3 – Participation fee for each project is 30% of the travel costs, plus the annual membership fee 2014 (30€).
