Empower Your Nature

Training Course

15-22 October 2022 | Tinos Island, Greece

"Empower your Nature" is a training course organized by Hellenic Youth Participation focused on the needs of people working with youngsters with fewer opportunities.

In Europe, 20% of youngsters are affected by at least one psychological problem every year. From 2020 till today, the pandemic has introduced new levels of anxiety and stress, affecting the daily life and the future prospects of young people. Those vulnerable before are even more affected now.

In youth work, the main psychological impact is the high rates of stress, anxiety, loneliness, depression, alcohol, drug use and self-injury or suicidal behaviour. Finally, rural areas and especially the islands in Greece have few opportunities for on-the-job training with young people creating even more challenges in their work.

Empower Your Nature aims to improve their ability to empower and enhance their social inclusion through mindfulness and nature-based practices and methodologies. The specific methodologies that we will follow in education are storytelling, poetry, ecological collage, botanical art and embodiment practices.


*The development of professional competence (knowledge, skills and attitudes) of use of non-formal methods of education, especially activities based on consciousness and contact with nature.

*A better understanding of the conditions and achieving greater social inclusion of young people with fewer opportunities, through methods based on contact with nature and expanding consciousness.

*A better understanding of the psychological, social and economic characteristics of young people with fewer opportunities.

*An increase in the motivation to work with young people with fewer opportunities.
