More about the project:

Building on our experience from The Human Rights Cafe at IPC, the project will be implemented in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina. The project will be composed  of 24 Alumnis from various countries. The participation in the project will provide the participants with broader knowledge about human rights, with special focus on children protection and refugees law, responsibility to protect doctrine (R2P), together with knowledge about international institutions and organizations supporting promotion and education about Human Rights, such as United Nations and Council of Europe as well as conflict resolution methods. Besides the theoretical knowledge, the main aim of the project is to equip the participants in practical tools and methods needed in youth work, in order to enrich their skills and simplified acting as Human Rights educators. The project will be run by experienced youth trainers with academic background and practical expertise from humanitarian and development projects related to the topic of the project.
The main core of the project is 6-days long training course. During the stay, participants will be participating in games, simulations and exercises about the topic. Due to active participation in activities and evaluation provided for any of them as well as for the whole training, the youth leaders and youth workers will learn how to implement the knowledge learned in practical activities and workshops after being back home.

Eligible coordinators/participants: Residents in one of the European countries, and also Turkey, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Palestine, Syria, or Tunisia

More information:

The seminar will take place in Chieti, Abruzzo Region (Italy) from 12th (arrival day) till 18th (departure day) February 2018. Participants will be hosted in two structures: the hotel Antico Borgo (www.anticoborgochieti.it) and in 3 bed & breakfast in the same street of the hotel. Breakfast will be in the hotel for all participants (including those sleeping in the B&B). Lunches will be prepared by our support staff crew and served in the Hotel. For dinner we will explore local restaurants. The hosting places are in the historical part of Chieti and everything is close and easy to reach by foot. For sure, internet will be available in the hotel and we are negotiating for the B&B. Towels will be changed once in the middle of our staying. Costs: No costs for food and lodging. No participation fee.

Context: Self-assessment, evaluations and ways to recognise own competences are very important steps in the curriculum of young people especially to address their needs of learning, to understand their level of knowledge and skills, to apply properly their competences. This aspect is really important also for all those persons who work with young people in both non formal and formal contexts (schools, youth centres, youth councils, institutions, etc.). That’s why teachers, youth workers, youth leaders, are more and more looking for efficient methods to address the personal development of young people.
