Me, You and Europe

The training activity took place
in Eggenburg, Austria
organised by Youth Information Tirol
May 29th - June 3rd 2005

Aims & objectives

the training course (action 5 from the YOUTH programme) was on "Culture" and exploring it from different angles.

It included personal and group learning processes, space for sharing and reflection, a good mix of outdoor and indoor activities.

I was a trainer (in a team of 3), with 20 participants from all the programme countries.

My inputs included: the YOUTH programme, some models on "Culture", running the reflection groups, intercultural night, the evaluation.

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

The project was developed as part of the Training for Trainers (TOT) long term training course.
The team was composed by Katrin Luth (Austria), Jason Schroeder (Scotland) and myself.

Training methods used & main activities

Mix of non formal education methods, with a strong emphasis on the balance between outdoor education and indoor working methods.

Outcomes of the activity

The group had a very positive experience. After the positive feeddback collected we got the inspiration to make the course into a successful "package" and realised other courses with similar concepts and ideas.

Your tasks and responsibilities within the team

Shared responsibility of all the activities, with an emphasis on the theoretical part based on inputs on culture and identity.

I worked on this training for 6 days as a full time trainer.
