In a constantly radicalizing Europe, where borders and literal walls are built and not destroyed, where the political reality is turning to a radical right and where xenophobia is growing, we need youth to get involved! We witness alienation from political and civic life. To combat these tendencies, we are running a training to motivate and empower youngsters to become community activists! Thanks to the international setting this will not only be a sense of responsibility towards the local community, but also a feeling of belonging to a common Europe, a European citizenship. Through the practical part of the project participants will get equipped with a new set of tools to become active in their local community and in the International Voluntary Movement!
TARGET GROUP: the training is targeting youth with little experience in NGOs and civic life, but with a motivation and potential to get involved and become community activists and community leaders.
PROJECT AIM: The project aims to create a strong value base of human rights for actions in the local community and to train and empower participants with little experience in youth work to become active within their NGOs, within the International Voluntary Service movement and at large to take an active role in their society. Gathering youngsters from different background to discuss recent political issues, treats for our society – such as radicalization – will create a stronger network of likeminded activists from a diverse background working together for a more inclusive and tolerant society.
At the same time aiming for a younger target, millennials mostly will ensure the involvement of a new generation of youth work offering an alternative value set and world view next to radicalization and discrimination that we increasingly notice in today’s Europe.
