Treasure Hunting Games and Creative Communication 2nd Edition

Training Course

13-22 December 2022 | Troodos Mountains, Cyprus

We explore the benefits & educational value of a treasure hunting games tool in youth work and how it can be used to educate young people on specific topics. Treasure Hunting Games are a great tool for personal and professional development.

Application Deadline: 28/10/2022

As children we used to achieve effective communication regardless of the verbal language barriers. Creative non-verbal and playful communication seems like a skill people are losing along the way of growing up. This training course promotes creative communication by using treasure hunting games as a creative tool to develop alternative communication means.  Treasure hunting games are used to develop necessary skills to raise the quality of communication between adults by using gamification and play as a tool.

We aim to explore the benefits and educational value of a treasure hunt gaming tool in youth work and how it can be used to educate young people on specific topics. More than communication skills, this project aims to show in practice how one innovative non-formal education method such as a treasure hunt has several applications, a significant potential for developing several competences. It’s collaborative and critical thinking nature makes it a great tool for personal and professional development under a variety of contexts.

Youth Flair (Others)

The informal group of young people, Youth Flair, was created in 2019 out of young people’s need to actively participate and create learning opportunities for themselves and others in their age group. Youth Flairs’ aim is to help, facilitate, create and execute projects on an international level to implement engaging activities regarding social, cultural and environmental projects, directed to youth.
