Aims & objectives

This TC was focused on educators and people working with people for them to DISCOVER how they and others learn and grow, DARE to take a next step in their life and DIVE IN their personal growth.
It aimed to bring together youth workers, volunteers, teachers, trainers, social workers and everybody interested in formal and non-formal education and learning, who wanted to share their practices and learn new tools and methods that are usable in their everyday personal and professional life. We were looking for synergies and interconnections between formal and non-formal education and explore how to implement non-formal education methods into the formal environment.

The main topic of the training was education and learning. We thus explored how we learn and how we support others in learning, how we motivate ourselves and others, how we make education playful and fun experience and how to be creative in learning. Through experiential activities we addressed the needs of participants in exploring how to take responsibility for their own learning, how to discover and develop potential of every individual and how to go for our maximum in life.
