Target group & international/intercultural composition of the group & team

The project’s main beneficiaries (43 youth workers from Romania, Portugal, Poland, Hungary, Togo, Tanzania, Nigeria and Ghana) took part in a long-term training course focused on developing practical working competencies in global citizenship field and street campaigning.

The training approach was designed as the following:
1) An initial training course for developing basic competencies in global citizenship and street campaigning for the future multipliers (it took place in Lome, Togo, in April 2017);
2) A practice phase in each of the partner countries (Ghana, Hungary, Nigeria, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Tanzania and Togo), where the multipliers, as trained street campaigners in global issues, prepared and implemented campaigns for more than 2400 young people in their communities between May and December 2017. The topics tackled in their campaigns were: pollution, waste, responsible consumption, sustainable life style, etc.
3) The practice phase was followed by a second training course (which took place in Busteni, Romania, in November – December 2017), for assessing the first practice phase results and for developing advanced competencies in the street campaigning and global citizenship. The main aim of the training was to complete the set of competencies of the youth workers to become independent street campaigners.
4) A second practice phase took place in the partner countries, where the multipliers transferred their competencies in a new round of street campaigns for more than 3200 young people in their communities.
5) A final evaluation meeting was organized in Portugal, Madeira, in May 2018, in order to evaluate and assess the impact of the whole project and plan how the network will continue to work in a coordinated manner from now on.
