Training Course

Are you passionate about telling stories and bringing in your point of view? Do you feel Internet plays an important role in society? Are you confident with basic IT & social media skills, with a passion to know more? This course could really be for you!
"Share Your Story" is a training course for youth workers, social workers and people involved and with an interest in education, to explore Backpack Journalism (BPJ) competences and life in rural areas, in connection with nature. We will: work on media sources, create content on different platforms (blog, video, photo…) and free softwares, discuss media & their impact on our society and life, exchange skills and knowledge in a non-hierarchical group of learners, share everyday tasks and practical sustainable actions, explore community life - while practicing the competences related to all this! The main objectives of the course are: - to introduce the methodology of Backpack Journalism (BPJ) and see examples of previous projects and good practice; - to explore and identify how BPJ can be used as a tool for youth work, education, employability; - to promote active citizenship, participation of young people and responsibility to make change in the society and community; - to discuss and re-think concepts such as work, employment, business, economy, ecology and sustainability; - to create an experience of community through sharing living and working spaces and participating in daily tasks, to contribute directly to environmental, community and social well-being;
