nyh koolitus training course erasmus+ austria call participants compassionNoored Ühiskonna Heaks (NYH) is promoting a call for participants for a Training Course called Compassion in Action” which will take place from 22nd until 30th January 2019 in Payerbach, Austria.




The main aim of the project is to create a foundation to build more caring, supportive and healthy communities by providing safe space for the participants to connect with their emotions, share experiences, develop positive attitudes and acquire tools and strategies to respond to the challenges of social issues effectively and with compassion.


Through methods such as dialogue, group and self-reflection, bodywork, meditation, stillness, movement, dance and play we will journey into our personal stories and experience, learn from each other, exchange and identify practices, and create a shared understanding of what is necessary to bring more trust, support and empathy in youth work. There will also be sessions on designing and planning concrete follow-up and dissemination activities to ensure the wider impact of the project.


Throughout this course, participants will develop greater awareness of their bodies, feelings, emotions and inner processes to build safe, empathic and authentic connection with youth based on trust and openness, therefore building strong foundations to create healthy, caring and supportive communities. During the 7 days, participants will gain more self-awareness, develop their capacity to communicate in compassionate and nonviolent manner, lead from the heart and mind alike, as well as learn to motivate and bring out the best in themselves, the people they are working with and communities they reside.


Participants will also gain tools and strategies how to improve and maintain wellbeing thus contributing to developing resilience in themselves and young people they work with. Wellbeing as a core value will be basis of the program as well as subject for participants to explore and see opportunities to create processes and safe spaces for wellbeing to be fostered and flourish in their home communities.
