Noored Ühiskonna Heaks (NYH) is promoting a call for participants for a Training Course called “Games 4 The Goals” which will take place from 04th until 12th December 2019 in Castel Saunderson, Ireland.
Games 4 The Goals (G4TG) is an eight-day training course which aims to develop Global Education competences of youth workers and educators through games-based learning, with a focus on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The idea for this project results from the growing need within development education and youth work organisations to find new and interactive ways to engage with young people on global issues such as poverty, inequality and climate change. Our hope is to harness the power of games to develop media literacy and critical thinking skills, examine values within society and encourage young people to take informed action related to the SDGs.
OUR GOALS AND OBJECTIVES
➢ Explore meaning and principles of Gamification and its uses in non-formal education
➢ Use games based learning approaches to explore key global education pillars such as critical thinking, problem solving and active citizenship
➢ Examine the use of video games and online games in Global Education
➢ Equip youth workers with knowledge and skills to tackle key global issues such as climate change, conflict and migration
➢ Allow a space for youth workers to use Gamification tools to explore the SDGs
This event will bring together 28 participants from Ireland, Italy, Czech Republic, Cyprus, Poland, Greece, Slovakia, Portugal, Estonia and United Kingdom. The event will be held in English. There are 2 vacancies available and participants should be from older than 18 years old.
The Erasmus + Programme will cover 100% of the accommodation, food and activities and will reimburse 100% of the travel costs for the participants – up to 225 euros. There will be a participation fee of 40 Eur. per participant.
