The training activity took place
in Cork, Ireland

Aims & objectives

The Fast Forward training programme brought together an international group of
thirty young leaders and people who work with young people in Cork, Ireland in
January 2015.
The purpose of the training programme was to explore, learn and share our
insights about the themes of Creativity, Resilience & Global Citizenship and to
share creative methods and tools. This publication is a step by step guide to a
range of activities exploring the themes and to a wide range of workshops.
These use a variety of creative processes including clay, creative writing, painting,
sculpture, multimedia, design thinking, music, theatre, photography and text.

Some highlights from people:

Realising I have lots of ideas and am creative will make me a better global citizen!
The trainers have an amazing ability to guide, lead and encourage in a very warm, inclusive, organised, dynamic and encouraging way - challenging, inspiring and nurturing at the same time. A privilege to be part of it all!
The playfullness of being around the group has given me drive to keep laughing and being silly.
I am more aware of my potential ....and my impact on others
I particularly enjoyed the peer facilitated workshops and learning different methods of approach to engaging young people creatively.
The passion of all of the participants and the energy was inspiring.
