It was initiated by several European NGOs in order to learn and share innovative non-formal education methods for young people, but especially for groups with fewer opportunities such as people with disabilities, young refugees and youth from marginalised groups into local communities.
One of the biggest challenges that youth work is facing at the moment is how to integrate young migrants and refugees while ensuring that they benefit from youth work as well, youth workers need to be trained and learn new tools in order to transform the youth work to be able to face the current challenges.
Therefore we invite 38 youth workers from Cyprus, Latvia, Slovakia, Finland, FYROM, Hungary, Spain and Germany to learn new tools that make use of drama methods in order for them to include these tools in their daily work. These tools will help youth workers to integrate youth from marginalized groups into their work and into society. Also we will speak about ways of involving young refugees in international youth projects in order for them to benefit from these experiences as well.
The trainers will be Maria Diaz Durillo, Mohammed Awwad, Branimir Suk and Svenja Oltmanns.
