This unique 8-day international training brings together up to 25 youth workers and other multipliers from various NGOs from Italy, Poland, Romania, North Macedonia and Germany, either representing or working with migrant communities. In times of war and forced migration, racism and discrimination in Europe, we want to use this unique learning opportunity to jointly discover ways to promote diversity, anti-discrimination and inclusion of migrants, particularly through youth and educational work.
How to engage and work on eye-level with especially young migrants?
What approaches can be used for empowerment and promotion of active citizenship among migrant communities?
What are successful methods and lessons learnt from others?
What kind of possibilities are there for cooperation among NGOs on the international level?
As trainers and participants we will put our heads together to find answers to these questions and innovative impulses for our every-day practice.
At first participants will learn about pedagogical methods of diversity and democracy education, taking into account intersectional perspectives regarding identity and discrimination. Second, participants will have the chance to learn from best practice examples of anti-discrimination work from organisations and projects in nearby Hamburg. Last but not least, they will get space and support to develop their own project ideas – on an international level.
Next to expert inputs, the team of experienced trainers will apply a variety of interactive group engaging methods and make use of different media to convey the training contents. We will facilitate peer-to-peer learning among participants and organize project visits. Room for reflection will be provided to enhance the personal and mutual learning process. There will be plenty of time for informal exchange, socializing and networking.
