The 1st European NCD Youth Conference will take place from 6th to 9th of December in Slovenia. The youth seminar, which will be a side event of the conference, has been accepted for funding by Slovenian NA for Erasmus+ Programme and we can offer up to 3 places to the representatives of your organization. The program of the seminar will start one day before the conference and will take place from 5th to 9th of December 2019 in Slovenia.
The NCD Conference aims to bring together the Public Health and Youth sectors to ensure better working and living conditions of young people in Europe. Primarily, we would like to empower youth workers and leaders to set up a healthy environment for their constituents locally. At the conference, we will address the most pressing needs of the youth workers, which include lack of knowledge (on NCDs), lack of skills (research, project management, advocacy, policy making), and lack of a professional-social network between organisations.
The central activity of this project is the conference on NCDs and Youth. During the 5 working days, the participants will be able to acquire and upgrade:
▪ Knowledge of NCDs and risk factors
▪ Skills connected to Youth health and methodology used in the sector: research, project management, advocacy, policy-making and making/or creating a safer space for young people to develop.
▪ A comprehensive professional-social network between organisations to share best practices and reinforce a connection between the Youth and Public Health sectors.
The seminar will include very diverse methodology: lectures in plenary setting, “hands-on” workshops, simulations, group work, individual mentoring (and careers counselling) and more. The number of participants will be 50 or more. Despite the Erasmus + programme limit, there is high demand within the sector for this kind of content, which is why we might open certain parts of the conference (e.g. lectures) to a wider audience.
We are looking for 3 participants (18-30) to join this opportunity.
Accommodation and food is fully covered by the programme and 360 euros for traveling cost.
