The training activity took place
in Nurmes, Finland
organised by Hyvärilä Youth Centre
September 18th - 27th 2016

Aims & objectives

The aim of the training course is to enable youth workers continue to reflect and incorporate their personal, professional and youth work core values in their work with young people in the current climate of conflicting values within European countries due to the refugee crisis.

The concrete objectives of the Training Course are as follows:
- Participants will gain a clear understanding of the core values underpinning youth & community work and have the opportunity to relate these to their individual values.
- Participants will have the opportunity to discuss and reflect if the current response to the refugee/migrant crisis has resulted in ambiguous and contradictory interpretations of EU values.
- Participants will gain an understanding of conflict – its causes and effects, and will have the opportunity to further develop their skills in responding to conflict through the constructive use of conflict in diverse situations.

- Young people will be in a position to grow and develop in a Europe which embraces diversity and promotes equality of opportunity and inclusion for all people, and in particular for those who are vulnerable in society.
