impresions of the project "Creative Arts for Youth Participation”

The project of create art in youth was a amazing. First of all, the place that we stayed was very comfortable and the hosting people were really helpful. Also some other things that made the project a nice experience was that we were a lot of different countries with a lot of different cultures to explore and a lot of nice people to talk and discuss about different topics. Lastly I think in overall that it was a nice experience and I really want to do something like this later in life (Athanasios Vasilopoulos)

Dissemination of the project Human Rights

It started in 1948 with the first article that states - we are all free and equal in dignity and rights. Each human being from the moment of its birth has 30 rights which ensures that we will always be protected no matter where we live, how we look like or what we believe in. This is the essence of tolerance and equality. Unfortunately, there are still people who break those fundamental rights or they just don’t know them properly. That is why we've created a youth exchange, called Human Rights Squad, which took place in Poronin between 2nd and 9th of November 2017 with the aim promote importance and role of the Human Rights on a daily basis among youngsters within Erasmus+ Programme. 42 youngsters and youth leaders from Greece, Romania, Croatia, Cyprus, Italy, and Poland with the help of methodology of non-formal education deepened the topic of human rights. As the final result of our project, we've created a flash mob in the nearest bigger city Zakopane (the capital of polish mountains) where we reminded the inhabitants about the importance of human rights. Each participant got a Youthpass certificate as a tool to recognize gained competencies during this 8-day long project.

Non formal education has got rising impact on young people all across Europe. European Union is supporting different forms of non-formal education, and includes it in its policies and structures. At the same time, this sector is not fully regulated, and formal approaches to professionalization of education and development ofnon-formal education staff are uncommon and limited.
How to become a trainer? Who issues the certificates? What is the difference between junior and senior trainer? How to ensure quality of delivered trainer’s work? There are any questions and issues for a debate so that it why we have started with Training of Trainers and Active Leaders - the projectwhich is complex and includes 3 mobility activities: TOTAL Basic, TOTAL Advance and TOTAL Lab.

                Training of Trainers and Active Leaders – TOTAL Basicwas organised by TDM2000 Polska and took place from 12th to 19th of September 2016 in Krzyżowa, Poland and equipped 35 young leaders, youth workers and junior trainers coming from partner organisations from Poland, Croatia, Bulgaria, Romania, Macedonia, Malta, Cyprus, Portugal, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Lithuania, Spain, Greece, United Kingdom and Italy with new experience and provided them with an opportunity to professional development and space to contribute to quality of youth work in Europe.

Main aims and objectives which were achieved during the Training are:
·         to empower involved organisations to implement non-formal education activities in their local communities and on national and European level;
·         Professional development of trainers and youth workers, starting from basic skills, through development of training modules, training strategies, to improvement of youth work and training.
·         to prepare participants for individual work as junior trainers and together with other trainers within their organisation, and prepare follow up activities;

Participants of TOTAL Basic developed innovative training methods; used creative tools, available resources, and new skills necessary in youth work. They are in process of local follow up activities after the Training Course as a part of results’ dissemination. New generation of European trainers and TOTAL Pool of trainers has been created and established in order to plan future project ideas which will be developed and implemented locally and internationally with collaboration of all partner organisations.
