Connector 7.0 - Connecting the world by non-formal learning

Training Course

5-8 July 2022 | Bucharest, Romania

The 7th edition of Connector aims to create a space and context where people involved in learning become familiar with different non-formal learning methods to be used in inclusion&diversity contexts, including working with migrants and refugees.

The Romanian National Agency started organizing Connector in 2014, aiming that the event – focused on sharing and experiencing non-formal learning methods - would become a European reference point for non-formal education. One teaser of Connector can be found HERE.

In a nutshell: the 7th edition of Connector aims to create a space and context where people involved in learning become familiar with and practice different non-formal learning methods to be used in inclusion&diversity contexts. A special focus will be put on how these learning methods can be used to integrate migrants and refugees, given the result of the displacement crisis that started on February 24, 2022.

In the context of the European Year of Youth and the Ukraine humanitarian crisis, our choice is a natural one and in line with the EU positioning. 

Why Connector?

Because it is a chance to become familiar with non-formal learning methods that you can afterward use in your projects or your daily learning context, with a focus on inclusion&diversity. 

Because you can experience learning in an international and multicultural context. 

Because learning by doing and focusing on participants' hands-on experience are the key elements of this event.

With these in mind, we will offer a large gallery of practical workshops in order to:

- promote non-formal learning in Europe with an emphasis on inclusion and more specifically on working with refugees and migrants;

- create connections between non-formal learning and formal education;

- create a collaborative space for sharing methods, instruments, practices and efficient ideas for learning (to get an idea, some of the previous editions’ methods were: debate, nonviolent communication, photovoice, forum theater, improvisation theater, storytelling, graphic facilitation, living library);

- create a learning space with a focus on European values.

Who can participate?

Practitioners from all educational sectors – school education/adult education/vocational education and training/higher education/youth are invited to register! 

We welcome youth workers, adult education practitioners, trainers, learning facilitators, teachers, educators, and support staff, representatives coming from schools, higher education, adult education, and vocational training. Other enthusiasts interested in non-formal learning are welcome!

Traditionally, Connector is about networking, sharing and practice, but it’s mostly about PEOPLE getting connected!
