Understand to ACT

Training Course

2-10 November 2018 | Nicas pagasts, Latvia

We are true believers that before you can help others you need to help yourself, therefore, youth actors will be provided with space and tools to use mindfulness in order to raise their capacity when encouraging active participation based on EU values

Young people are facing several obstacles that are holding them back to engage in quality participation that would be based on personal initiative, moreover, powerfully rooted in common EU values.
Therefore, 32 youth actors who are actively working with young people will come together in UACT training course and they will be provided with knowledge about European values, meaning behind European citizenship and common benefits it brings and, furthermore, they will be equipped with skills (motivation, problem-solving, critical thinking, collaboration, flexibility) and methods as raising self-awareness and learning more about one’s self in order to raise their capacity at youth work. We are true believers that before you can help others you need to help yourself, therefore, we have included self-awareness dimension.

UACT will use different self-reflection methods and tools how to reflect on one’s strengths, weaknesses, skills, obstacles, and possible solutions to review their effectiveness and when needed adapt one’s approach, rather than just carrying on doing things as they always have been done.

UACT will use mainly non-formal learning methods that consist of self-directed but continuously supported activities. Non-formal learning methods such as discussions, role plays, work in international groups, experience sharing, deep self-reflection, workshops, and simulations, so to hands-on activities would engage participants in a participatory and active learning process.

The objective of the project are:
1. Examine the concepts of European citizenship and EU values
2. Analyze direct and indirect benefits of active participation
3. Reinforce self-awareness with critical and creative reflections compare participant current behavior and actions to their internal values

4. Discover the current situation of active citizenship in partner countries
5. Create innovative tools and practical action plans on how to raise awareness about the benefits of active citizenship

6. Provide information on possibilities of the Erasmus+ Programme and encourage to use them to turn ideas into actions.
