What’s our responsibility as youth workers in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals? How can we design sustainable workshops at the same time we teach our trainees about the SDGs and its impact on everyone’s future? These are the core questions that created a need for “SDGeneration” project.
Understanding the importance of Education in raising active and concerned citizens that will contribute positively for a livable world made us reflect, along with 9 other partners, about a Training Course to empower other Youth Workers and Educational Professionals with the necessary skills and tools to make their own contribution on Sustainable Development. The partners identified the need to know more about UN’s role, what are exactly the SGDs and how can we all work in order to achieve them. This way, we started designing the project and we understood it would be necessary to create 2 linked international activities to have the time to provide a quality training about the topic (a first training course to provide the knowledge and the tools for creating sustainable educational sessions, and a second training course to evaluate the outcomes, practice the gained skills and improve them) and give time to develop local activities so participants could practice and improve even further their skills.
The SDGeneration is made of 2 different activities, the first one in Beja and the second one in Cairo. For both activities we will have 20 participants per country; 2 trainers from Check-IN and 1 from BWF with various years of experience in youth work, project management, youth policies and direct contact with young people, specialists in management and entrepreneurship, and 1 staff member. There will be 10 countries involved: Portugal, Egypt, Italy, Slovakia, Spain, Jordan, Greece, Algeria, Georgia and Morocco. The participants should be the same in both activities since in the second activity they should put into practice activities based on the learning outcomes of the first training course. This way there will be the chance to evaluate the difficulties encountered and improve their Youth Worker skills. The participants will be in majority from 25 to 35 years old, youth workers that develop activities in their organizations.
Participants will be from Italy , Greece , Spain , Algeria , Egypt , Jordan , Tunisia , Maroco , Portugal and Slovakia .
