Aims & objectives

The general aim of Communication and Participation Officers’ Staff Training (CIOST+) is to provide communication, information and participation officers with ideas, inspiration, tools, as well as basis for networking and sharing experiences.
Main objectives of the CIOST+ were:
• to encourage networking and sharing, as well as organizing and emancipating (becoming European, using resources);
• to explain European Solidarity Corps and possibilities of communication;
• to provide new skills to participants from the area of communication;
• to introduce participation and discuss its importance in contemporary Europe.

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

About 45 people from approximately 27 different European countries, mainly Communication Officers of Erasmus+ National Agencies and Participation Officers of Erasmus+ National Agencies.

Training methods used & main activities

This event was based on non-formal education and experiential learning approach. A combination of different creative and interactive methods were used: Ice-breaking and Getting to know each other activities, Workshops, Discussion, Guest Lectures, Experience sharing, Individual work, Theoretical Input, Presentations, Personal, group, and meta reflections and evaluations.

Outcomes of the activity

• networked among each other;
• shared different resources;
• were introduced to the new European Solidarity Corps programme and possibilities of its communication to wider public and to key stakeholders;
• understood importance of participation in youth programmes and how it connects to European Youth Strategy.

Based on the final evaluation, participants were happy with the content and the overall event.

Testimonial of the reference person

Domagoj is kind, cooperative, flexible, proactive and great at solving problems, coming up with solutions and approaches. Even in projects where you end up having one unlucky occasion after another (like speakers cancellations last minute) he is there for you to help you re-arrange the programme. Not every facilitator or trainer can handle last minute changes so well. He is a resource on his own when it comes to civic movements and communication, so I highly suggest using his skills and talent in this aspect as well. There are not too many trainers in this training pool who have successfully organised massive civic demonstrations and led communication campaigns on such large scale.
