Trainings in Europe and the in Mediterranean area

The intercultural trainings and seminars allow social workers, socio-cultural facilitators, students, youth leaders and volunteers to live a mobility experience, to meet their European counterparts, to create bridges between their local work and an European approach of the world of youth. They thus become multipliers of this enriching experience and bring new visions and energy to their practices.

What kind of activities are carried out during a training?

The activities are interactive and participatory in order to allow the exchange and sharing among participants. They are based on popular and non-formal education. Each training has its own theme, for example : intercultural animation, inclusion of young migrants, documentary video as a pedagogical tool, fighting against hate speech, conflict resolution…

The participants in the trainings come from different countries, so each training allows to live an intercultural experience. The informal time spent exchanging with other participants about their work context is an integral part of the learning strategy proposed in the trainings.
