Study session "Youth Democracy Academy"

Training Course

8-14 October 2023 | European Youth Centre Budapest, Hungary

The focus of the Study session is to equip youth leaders/facilitators with knowledge and skills to implement the "Educate for Democracy" programme which explores the concept of democracy innovatively from local, national, and European perspectives.

During the study session, participants will deepen their facilitation skills and get to familiarise themselves with the "Educate for Democracy" programme developed by DYPALL Network and other tools to spread their acquired knowledge about democracy in their local realities. In this hectic time that Europe is going through, it is important to rebuild trust in democracy by giving the space for young people to look critically at the existing democratic system in Europe and their role in it.

The "Educate for Democracy"programme is composed of training modules based on non-formal education methodology appealing to young people so they could explore the concept and values of democracy innovatively, tackling it from local, national, and European perspectives.  It is based on the following topics: citizen participation, understanding and experiencing democracy, increasing the impact, media literacy and critical thinking, democracies at risk and youth leadership. Some activities in the training modules aim to explore the topic and share knowledge among participants; others offer the opportunity to experience the subject and reflect on our perception of a concrete issue; other activities develop specific competencies and/or invite us to take action to address particular problems.

Participants should be residents of Council of Europe member States; and/or Belarus, Holy See and Kazakhstan.
