The training course will take place between 18th and 27th of November 2018, 18th being the arrival day, while the 27th – the departure day.

Global community is facing great challenges that cannot be combatted without supranational collaboration. Global threats and problems like climate change, financial crises and terrorism, all have immense impact at national level and call for international agreements and legislative actions to be effectively addressed.

The training “Facilitation Skills” gives youth workers skills, techniques and tools to disseminate, especially among youth, their knowledge upon the need for solidarity, common approach and togetherness in building inclusive and equitable societies. The activity will entail workshops, observation and interactive discussions. The training activities are designed for participants to be actively involved, share experiences and reflect upon their learning.

The followings are the learning objectives of the training:

  • To give the participants skills, techniques and tools to facilitate discussions upon complex issues requiring collective responses.
  • To give the participants the opportunity to develop their own non-formal sessions to promote the need for supranational and intergovernmental organisations to respond to global challenges.
  • To promote European cooperation in the field of youth work, specifically, solidarity and participation.
  • To provide an opportunity for youth leaders to meet peers from different cultural backgrounds and exchange experience.

The training will be conducted in English and translation will not be provided. Therefore, the participants are expected to have a good level of English, both written and spoken.
