Take part and learn

The training activity took place
in Merelbeke, Ghent
organised by Flemish NA

Aims & objectives

The training set out to promote participation as a learning tool. It shared a wide set of participative education methods, from game, digital, theatre and outdoor education. It gave space for participants to reflect their local participation practices and create international cooperation.

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

The team was composed of 4 trainers from the ToT 17/18, supported by the Flemish NA. The training was open to participants from all over Europe and gathered 20 people from Island to Istanbul.

Training methods used & main activities

The training used a variety of non-formal approaches. Some were based in game education, some used digital participation tools, we used sports and outdoor education and shared responsibility with the participants. As an empowering process the participants carried out 1/3 of the programme in self-organised groups.

Outcomes of the activity

The training created many local impacts, it allowed participants to create work plans and receive feedback from the group before implementing it. It also left room for discussing further international cooperation. Furthermore the participants created a zine to summarise their experiences. Last but not least a report is available from the Flemish NA in case someone would like to repeat or build upon the training.
