Tear down these Walls! Educational Approaches against Europe`s Past and Present Division

Training Course

5-12 September 2016 | Bucharest, Romania

In this training we will learn, try out and discuss a large variety of pedagogical approaches (like biographical work, artistic methods, excursions) to deal with the European east-west history, it`s current consequences and still existing stereotypes.
We’re looking for participants from the Netherlands, Italy, Lithuania, Bulgaria and Serbia, who would like to join our training project in Bucharest and who work with youths/young adults. The course is a followup of a training that took place in Berlin in March this year. The Bucharest training is conceptualized as an independent non-formal educational unit in this longterm project. We invite new participants to apply for the Bucharest part. It’s a cooperation project of us (solar e.V.) and our Romanian partner organisation Asociatia Expeditie in Cultura. (For more information about what happened so far, please visit our project blog: ABOUT THE TRAINING In these 6 days we will learn, try out, discuss and evaluate a large variety of non-formal pedagogical approaches to deal with the European east-west history and it`s current consequences. To reflect the European history and the still existing stereotypes about „the east“ and „the west“ is an important part of political education and is contributing to a peaceful Europe in future. We want to exchange experiences and perspectives on that topic. This also includes the presentation and evaluation of the projects that have been implemented by the participants of the Berlin training. Furthermore, the participants will get information about the communist time in Romania. In order to deal with the wide range of pedagogical approaches the training involves activities such as doing excursions to historical memorial places, talking with contemporary witnesses, doing biographical work and trying out creative and artistic methods and developing skills such as dealing with conflict or using pictures and visual methods.
