International Solidarity: TC1

Training Course

18-27 October 2021 | Sweden

Bringing international solidarity and intersectionality to practice: experience-based learning and creative methods. This training course invites participants to physically join the stage, broadening their role from spectators to spect-actors.

Are you a youth worker who’s passionate about global justice and international solidarity? Do you want to develop your capacities in working towards social change in your daily work? This training course brings international solidarity and intersectional perspectives to practice through creative methods.

PeaceWorks, together with our partner organisations, are offering a training course on International Solidarity for youth workers. We often meet people in the youth sector who express concerns about the way in which global power structures are reproduced in local settings - as well as in their daily work with young persons. This training course addresses these issues through a systemic approach where international solidarity and intersectionality are brought to practice, through experience-based learning and creative methods. A particular focus is given to ‘Forum Theatre’ (FT) which invites participants to join the stage, broadening their role from spectators to spect-actors. 

When and where?

The course consists of two course weeks. 

  • TC1: Sweden, 18th to 27th of October 2021 (including two days for travelling). 
  • TC2: France, 21st February to the 2nd of March 2022 (including two days for travelling).

Who can participate?

This is a project for youth workers who want to develop their capacities in working with social change through a systemic approach and creative methods. The requirements for participation are as follows:

  • You should be at least 18 years old
  • You should have been working with young persons for at least 6 months
  • Ideally, you should have experience with working with youth from different social backgrounds.

Moreover, it is important that participants are willing to reflect upon local and global power structures, as well as their own role in reproducing them. Applications are welcome from youth workers in Bulgaria, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Palestine, Spain, Sweden and Tunisia.
