“The undiscovered country” is about learning through experience during European Voluntary Service and introduces our three main topics. These topics are explored in the following three chapters "Future“, "Personal development“ and "Managing change“.

Aims of the tool

Intruducing key concepts and ways of working with the topics "Future“, "Personal development“ and "Managing change“ during seminars with EVS volunteers.

Description of the tool

"If our hopes of building a better and safer world are to become more than wishful thinking, we will need the engagement of volunteers more than ever." (Kofi Annan)

Voluntary service is undoubtedly very valuable for society. Besides the aspect of service, within the EU programme European Voluntary Service (EVS) the individual learning process of volunteers has become more and more important.

In our meetings we are looking for ways how to better support and empower volunteers both in volunteering and learning. In the past few years our discussions have often circled around three topics: future, personal development and managing change. With this brochure we are proud to share some of our ideas, approaches and tools for working with volunteers.

“The undiscovered country” is about learning through experience during European Voluntary Service and introduces our three main topics. These topics are explored in the following three chapters "Future“, "Personal development“ and "Managing change“, both from a more or less "theoretical” and from a practical point of view. Thoughts, ideas, outlines of methods and tools may serve as an inspiration for how to work on this topic during EVS seminars and meetings.

- Methods of working on the subject of future (Tomek Lubotzki)

- Development – the magic of life and non-formal education (Dagna Gmitrowicz)

- How to create an environment conducive to development? (Dagna Gmitrowicz)

- A conversation on managing change (Michael Kimmig & Eliza Zadłużna)

- Working with metaphors and stories (Michael Kimmig & Eliza Zadłużna)

"The effect of volunteering” closes the brochure with a practical example on how to organise a country-wide action that strengthens both voluntary work and individual learning.

- The effect of volunteering (Dagna Gmitrowicz & Anna Wohlesser)

Although „The undiscovered country” is mainly directed to EVS trainers who would like to work more on future, personal development and managing change it gives an interesting insight for everyone who is interested in the how these topics are addressed in our EVS seminars.

Enjoy reading!
