in Larnaca
organised by Citizens in Power
24 to 30/10/2017

Aims & objectives

The project ‘Souls without Borders’ aims to provide high-quality training to young educators/ trainers who are dealing with the issue of refugees’/migrants’ integration into modern EU societies, by setting as a prime aim to disseminate this specific approach-system of integration, composed of non-formal methods of education, to other organizations and NGOs deriving from the rest of the EU countries. Specifically, ‘Souls without Borders’ is seeking to provide young educators with the appropriate know-how, through a well-established and concrete method on inclusion and integration. Hence, after the training’s completion, the young workers/educators will be capable to methodically work with mixed groups consisting of both Europeans and migrants/ refugees, in order to achieve the social integration of the latter into the already existing communities. To accomplish this target, the activities of the training course ‘Souls without Borders’ concentrate on a plurality of related concepts, such as social inclusion; all these concepts are being approached through creative, experiential methods, based on non-formal educational tools, including simulation exercises, role play, creative activities, structured dialogue, group building, energizers and breaking the ice activities, theatrical games, guided discussions, presentations, activation of five senses, on-line activities, experimental processes, cultural activities and strategic planning.

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