Navigators on creative seas - 2nd edition

Training Course

7-13 September 2021 | Calarasi, Romania

Youth workers from 15 countries explore during a TC how to help young people solve community and individual problems through creativity and decision-making techniques.

The outbreak of the COVID-19 disease has posed great challenges to the worldwide economy and people’s daily lives and will have far-reaching consequences beyond the spread of the disease. At the same time, the crisis is also a strong driver of creativity and innovation. One can already observe abundant creativity and innovation emerging at the national, institutional, organizational, and individual levels. The involvement of youth workers as the frontline staff is essential to help young people solve community and individual problems through creativity and decision-making techniques. Creativity plays an essential role in helping youth deal with stress, fear, and uncertainty in times of crisis; express and regulate emotions in times of crisis; solve problems for fighting COVID-19; cope with stress and threats; fight with boredom installed during city lockdown. Creativity and resilience can help not only individual young people, as well as organisations can learn creative processes to solve problems and challenges posed by COVID-19 and adapt to the current and upcoming changes. Moreover, creativity is valued as the most important business skill in all sectors and industries (according to the 2019 Linkedin research).

Creativity, innovation, and design thinking will be the main pillars of the second edition of the project Navigators on Creative Seas. Monomyths team joined forces with 14 Youth NGOs to create during a training course 1 design thinking youth map for Youth NGOs, interested to learn step-by-step how to facilitate creative problem-solving “incubators” with the young people from their communities to find solutions to a variety of challenges.

TC agenda & objectives

The 7 days training course focuses on delivering a practical curriculum on creativity, design thinking, and innovation and training 30 youth workers to develop their competencies, find creative solutions to crisis situations and expand their working horizons, encouraging the exchange of best practices.
