Change the Story, Change the World

Training Course

25-29 April 2022 | Bru Moytura, Sligo, Ireland

Change the Story, Change the World is a 7-day training course (online and in-person) that aims to develop the capacity of youth workers to tackle poverty, inequality, climate change and other global issues through storytelling and global education.


Change the Story, Change the World (CSCW) is a 7-day blended training course (online and in-person) that aims to develop the capacity of youth workers to tackle poverty, inequality, climate change and other global issues through storytelling and global education. With this course, we want to facilitate an experience to reflect on all these critical aspects of the information society, share and develop knowledge and competencies, and explore the impact that mass communication is having on intolerance, development, democracy and global citizenship.

This project idea was born after years of successful trainings and collaboration with partners in the EU and internationally in the field of storytelling, critical media literacy and development education (or global education). In 2016 and 2018 we ran our own training "Spinning a Yarn" which focused on similar topics with more of a focus on how to create new narratives to counteract hate speech & single story media. With this range of experiences in mind, our overall goal for CSCW is to develop the capacity of youth workers to tackle poverty, inequality, climate change and other global issues through storytelling and global education.  

Our project will consist of a blended mobility combining both online workshops and a 4-day residential training in Ireland. Successful applicants will be required to participate in all phases of the project. The key dates of our project are as follows:

Online induction workshop - April 11th 11am-1pm (Irish time)

Residential Training – 25th April (arrival) to 29th April (departure)


For the online workshops, we will use our zoom platform. The purpose of the online workshops will be for participants to get to know each other and the training team and to begin to understand the basic concepts in relation to storytelling and global education. This online component will allow us to dig deeper into the topics in a more experiential when the group meets in person. The session will last approximately 2 hours.


Our residential training component will allow us to develop our understanding of storytelling and global education through experiential learning and the promotion of informed action. The training will take place in Ireland in a location which will be confirmed during the online workshops. A more detailed information pack related specifically to the residential training will be given to participants who complete the online phase of the project.
