Noored Ühiskonna Heaks (NYH) is promoting a call for participants for a Training Course called “EUWAY” which will take place in 21st February until 1st March 2014 in Pristina,Kosovo.
The proposed training course is dedicated to European citizenship and youth participation in view to contribute to a cohesive and just European community. As a starting point the current situation of young people in the EU and its neighborhood region will be discussed, focusing specifically on young people with fewer opportunities. Then concepts of participation will be framed by putting them into the context of European citizenship and investigating on the accessibility of EU institutions and decision-making processes for young Europeans and their concerns. At the end, based on the newly gained insights, the participants will be asked to develop participatory projects aiming at the inclusion of young people and social cohesion in Europe starting from the local level.
Methodology: The training course is based on a non-formal and trainee centered approach putting the needs and abilities of the participants into the center of the activity. A wide range of educational methods will be applied ranging from role plays, simulation exercises, workshops, and short interactive exercises.
The applied methodology shall foster the participants’ learning process and exchange of competences among them by involving them emotionally and by providing learning opportunities based on practical examples. Therefore, whenever applicable individual experiences will present the basis for learning and development of understanding of the issue in discussion.
