Call for Trainers

A society for all, still a dream? Youth participation, E-participation, Intercultural dialogue and youth work

Italian National Agency for Erasmus+ Youth (Agenzia Nazionale per i Giovani) is looking for

4 trainers (with facilitation competences too)

Application deadline:



The Italian National Agency, in cooperation with the NA of Cyprus, will organise a seminar within TCA2018 plan, named “A society for all, still a dream? Youth participation, E-participation, Intercultural dialogue and youth work”. Participation and its forms, contribution of the youth work to foster it are some of the main priorities for the Italian NA and for Erasmus+, as recommended in the Erasmus+ Guide.

The seminar aims at bringing together youth workers and youth leaders that are involved in projects of youth participation or about participatory processes. The expected learning outcomes include the necessary competencies and tools in order to work effectively with youth, empowering them to take initiative and hence, participate in the commons at local level.

The activity will enable participants to gain knowledge, skills and attitudes to successfully increase participation of young people and young migrants in the existing structures, spaces and mechanisms for participation in decision-making, increasing their sense of belonging.

This seminar aims at highlighting the main role of youth workers, youth organizations, youth leaders, at fostering their active participation and involvement in solving society’s issues, and at finding solutions and new path for giving an answer to young people (local youth, refugees, migrants) needs, especially at community level. That’s the point where youth dialogue and intercultural dialogue meet each other, especially in this time where participation has different contexts and ways of implementation, as for instance e-participation and digital citizenship.

The seminar will be held from 6th to 10th May 2019 in Cagliari - Italy.

A preparatory meeting is foreseen from 10th to 12 of April, city to be confirmed, probably Cagliari
