Active and Engaged - Supporting young people's conscious active citizenship


7-14 September 2020 | Online, Ireland

Empowerment Is a buzz word commonly used in the youth sector but young people need platforms that support them to think consciously and critically about issues that affect their lives, the communities they live in.

This online seminar is for youth workers and leaders to promote young people’s conscious active citizenship civic competence so that they can analyze issues in their community with a view to proposing innovative solutions to bring about social change.


To explore how to support young people’s conscious active citizenship


To provide a space for youth workers to critically reflect on how their Youth work practise empowers or disempowers young people

To understand how to empower young people to take action on issues affecting them in their community

To support youth workers to develop the tools they need to promote conscious active citizenship with young people

To explore how policy can support young people becoming change makers

To explore how E+ can support young people becoming active citizens

Expected Results :

Youth workers who understand how to engage young people

Youth workers are more equip to support young people to become more active on issues affecting them

Young people are more conscious of the communities and world they live in

As part of this training we should develop a toolkit in advance of the training that youth workers can use later with the young people they work with.


Initially this training was meant to be implemented face to face, unfortunately due to Covid it now has been transitioned online. As a result the seminar days over three mornings. Dates are as follows:

- 7th September: 09:30-12:00pm GMT 

- 11th September: 09:30-12:00pm GMT 

-14th September: 09:30-12:00pm GMT 

We recommend that participants are available to attend all three workshops due to fact that we are working with small group sizes.
