Tool Fair is an international event that brings together youth work experts all over Europe and beyond to discuss and learn from each other about innovative methods and best practices from the field of youth work. Tool Fair Poland 2 is a national event that aims at creating space for discussion and exchange of practices for youth workers and is thought to be a springboard to the international edition of Tool Fair which this year will be held in November in Portugal.

This Seminar is for 60 participants

from Erasmus+ Programme countries (Poland, France, Belgium, Lithuania) and Partner Countries (Russian Federation, Eastern Partnership region: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, Ukraine and Southern Mediterranean region (Algeria, Egypt, Israel,  Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Palestine, Syria, Tunisia).

The Polish Tool Fair will take place in Warsaw on 21-22 May 2020 and will provide a stimulating environment for varied approaches and practices for youth workers.

The programme of the Polish Tool Fair will include:

  • a TF Talk, an inspirational and challenging talk, serving as a food for thought and setting the theme of the event,
  • three workshop sessions, offering various tools and best practices in youth work. Workshops will be run by participants.
  • Tools Market, a late afternoon event during which the participants will be able to present their tools and get to know others’ ideas for youth work.
  • special workshops for participants conducted by external trainers

Objectives

The Tool Fair will support youth workers in:

  • sharing about, learning and reflecting on how to apply competences and education of youth workers on different levels and in different contexts to one’s own reality,
  • sharing knowledge, being challenged, getting inspired and critically reflecting on youth policy, research and studies of youth work and society,
  • exploring, learning from and supporting further development of practice and methods of working with young people,
  • engaging, connecting and experiencing youth work in context, while linking practice to local reality.

The working languages of the event will be Polish and English. Since parts of the event may be in Polish interpreted into English, unless the participants speak Polish, they should communicate freely in English.
