Community Problem Solving

Training Course

21-28 May 2018 | ANKARA, Turkey

We all have problems to solve, decisions to make. In order to solve these problems and make good decisions, we first have to understand the problem. Who or what is involved in the problem? When and where does the problem occur? Why does it occur?
Fast developing world conditions and environmental issues requires the individuals to be grown up as versatile and to be able to create the best scientific and realistic solutions to the problems that they can come face to face. It is really hard to bring healthy solutions to today’s problems with yesterday’s understanding an approaches. And this shows that it is really important to grow individuals who are able to produce efficient solutions to problems, work with them, evaluate the events and facts, develop the environment and himself or herself. In today’s globalizing world, we are in need of efficient individuals who can solve problems efficiently, can communicate with different groups and works, think productively and gather the analytical thinking and productivity, and are able to deal with the social change and transformation. That’s why we focused on this project to promote "critical thinking" and "problem solving" skills among youthworkers and how these skills can be used in everyday life and issues important to community. In this context our objectives we want to achieve with the project are; - developing teamwork and collaboration between the youthworkers; - enhancing the skills of preparing materials and presentations of youthworkers that communicate ideas effectively; - showing evidence that team members are able to learn and utilize problem-solving strategies in community problems; - developing critical and analytical thinking skills of young people and youthworkers.

Problem Solving Team (PST) (Youth NGO)

Problem Solving Team (PST) , is a social responsibility project team which was founded in 2013 by the young people who are guided by Sezer Gürsoy. There have been lots of social responsibility projects which have been run by PST and all these projects have been completed with the financial sources that are provided by sponsor firms or in the organization itself. We, as PST, would like to run an European Union Youth Project and develop an external source for the first time. We believe that we gained important experiences about managing a project by means of the projects that we have completed so far.
