An Exchange of Thoughts and Supports on the Topic of Cyber Bullying

Europe has become more cosmopolitan due to constant migration within the borders of a country or from abroad for many reasons. People sometimes get the false opinions of certain people or groups from unchecked media tools, and they tend to commit hate crimes or bias/hate incidents. When prejudice-motivated adults raise children, they inevitably turn into harsh bullies who cause discomfort and injury to their peers just because they belong to different ethnicity, language, race, nationality,
religions, physical appearance, gender identity, or sexual orientation. The aim of the project was to equip youth workers and educators with a set of competencies to provide support and work with young people who have faced hate and bullying for their empowerment and re-integration as active stakeholders in the fight against human rights, tolerance and understanding.

Guidelines on sustainability – reducing the environmental impact of youth projects and promotion of young people’s green behaviour

This manual aims to provide us with practical information and specific tips on how to reduce our environmental impact. As youth organizations, we continuously organize educational activities, youth exchanges, training courses, conferences, etc. Yet, all these events have significant environmental consequences and potentially harmful effects. The environmental impact is usually not put as a priority when organizing our events. This is expected since the curricula of our activities might have nothing to do with environmental issues. Yet, it is time to pay attention to them and try to organize activities based on the values of social responsibility.

Guide on international teams in business trainings

This guide has been developed by a partnership of former youth workers active in international and intercultural projects. After moving to the labor market, they recognized a competence gap in the field of intercultural communication skills among business people. Typically, progress towards the negotiation of economically beneficial contracts was often frustrated by mistakes in communication and a failure to understand the different cultures of trading partners. This was visible in many countries. Seeing this, the project team decided to prepare a guide and share practical knowledge and experience with business representatives.

The term comes from putting together the words: different + abilities. Our intention is to emphasize the abilities that these persons possess, not the lack of certain abilities. The purpose of the handbook is to increase knowledge and awareness about the different types of difabilities and how youngsters affected by them can be involved in projects.

Senior Trainer

Having a legal background, I see non-formal education and experiential learning as a pure magic unlocking potential that for formal education remains hidden. As a trainer, I enjoy listening to people and helping them grow. I focus on:
  • Participation; trust me, the participatory approach is the future,
  • Entrepreneurship; particularly when targeted to youth
  • Project management; I believe life is a project, trying to write the fairly good one
  • Empowerment; as there is never enough of it
