We would like to work with multipliers in youth work. These can be youth workers or people working with youngsters in various educational fields (diversity, citizenship, participation, personal development, social inclusion, intercultural communication, etc.). We encourage participants to introduce a project idea or a concrete challenge they would like to work (or continue working) on in the months following the seminar, related to supporting young people in their engagement with Europe & and the development of trust in democracy.
Preparation & Follow-up
Before the Training, participants will be asked to fill out a survey about challenges, topics or project ideas they would like to work on. Info on background & learning interests (skills) will help facilitators take their needs into account. An online space will be set up on basecamp where materials can be shared before, during and after the seminar. Between 45 days and 3 months after the training, an online follow-up meeting can give participants the chance to share their experiences on how they have been able to apply the training in their projects.
Participants will sleep in single rooms. There are currently no COVID-19 restrictions in Luxembourg, participants will be informed about any new rules before the training. Quarantine costs have to be covered be the participants themselves.
