Aims & objectives

This project gave the opportunity for youth workers and leaders, from European and African countries, to deeper explore global topics, interdependency and sustainability, as well as how to bring these important dimensions into their work, to their beneficiaries through advance facilitation and training skills, necessary for a quality management of global education processes.
The project was implemented between March 2016 and December 2017.

The main goal of this project was to increase the capacity of youth organizations to raise the level of global citizenship competencies among young people in different European and African countries.

The project achieved the following objectives:
-To increase the level of quality and professionalization in local and international (with focus on intercontinental) projects for the youth organizations involved;
-To encourage youth organizations to diversify their approach in working with young people through inspiration they got from the exchange of best practices in youth work (in an intercontinental context);
-To increase the knowledge level of youth workers and young people in topics like: global interdependencies, post 2015 agenda, social and global justice, intercultural learning, climate change and other environmental topics, responsible consumerism, sustainable lifestyle, etc.;
-To develop youth workers’ advanced facilitation competencies required in managing global education processes and transferable to other types of educational activities;
-To stimulate the internalization of global values (such as solidarity, global responsibility, etc.) in young people and youth workers;
-To encourage participation and involvement of young people in global processes;
-To develop youth workers’ practical skills in developing global citizenship competencies in their own communities;
-To increase the level of sustainable life styles of young people, youth workers and youth organizations;

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

The project’s main beneficiaries (26 youth workers from Romania, Spain, Italy, Togo, Tanzania and Mozambique) took part in a long-term training course focused on developing practical working competencies in the global education field.
The training approach was designed as follows:
1) An initial training course for developing basic competencies in global citizenship and global education (for the future multipliers) (It took place in Maputo, Mozambique in July 2016);
2) A practice phase in each of the partner countries (Italy, Mozambique, Romania, Spain, Tanzania and Togo) where the multipliers, as global educators, prepared and implemented global education workshops for more than 1200 young people in their communities between July and December 2016. The topics tackled in their workshops were: global interdependencies, environment, climate change, responsible consumption, sustainable life style, etc.
3) The practice phase was followed by a second training course (Which took place in Busteni, Romania in December 2016), for assessing the first practice phase results and for developing advanced competencies in the global education field. The main aim of the training was to complete the set of competencies of the youth workers to become independent global educators.
4) A second practice phase took place in the partner countries where, the multipliers transferred their competencies in a new round of global education workshops for more than 600 young people in their communities.
5) A final evaluation meeting was organized in Spain, Malaga in June 2017, in order to evaluate and assess the impact of the whole project and to plan how the network will continue to work in a coordinated manner from now on.
