nyh koolitus training erasmusplus austria humor businessNoored Ühiskonna Heaks (NYH) is promoting a call for participants for a Training Course called “Humour is Serious Business” which will take place from 18th until 25th November 2021 in Velden am Wörthersee, Austria.


“HUMOUR is SERIOUS BUSINESS” is aiming to provide space and time for participants to examine a multitude of issues, concerns and questions related to the use of Humour in an effort to increase their skills, knowledge and experience of Humour as an effecitve method of engaging young people.

Participants will come away from the training much better informed and ‘upskilled’ with a clear direction of how they can use humour in their work setting and with a clear plan for developing a locally-based project which they will document to further inform the discussion regarding Humour as a mechanism which can be used effectively in engaging young people.


“HUMOUR is SERIOUS BUSINESS” Training Programme will achieve the following objectives:

  • Upskilling youth work practitioners in the use of humour as an effective tool for engaging young people and youth work communities;
  • Enhancing knowledge of the various types of humour so as to increase understanding of how, where, when and why it can be applied;
  • Increasing awareness of how humour can be used as a pro-active and deliberate methodology in youth work and not just as a natural consequence of and response to specific situations;
  • Consider cultural differences in humour and understand better how these can be used to support and inform youth work practice;
  • Providing space and time for practitioners to reflect upon the use of their own sense of humour and consider where it can be altered to support their practice;
  • Challenge participants to step out of their ‘comfort zone’ in order to appreciate their own commitment to learning;
  • Developing local humour-based programmes to test methodologies and techniques with a view to informing humour-based practice;
  • The development of a number of joint-actions between partner organ- isations.



This event will bring together 31 participants from Estonia, Austria, Bulgaria, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Portugal, Romania, Spain, United Kingdom. The event will be held in English. There are 2 vacancies available and participants should be from older than 18 years old.
