Summary what was TC about:

We hear a lot that ”in non-formal education in the centre there is the learner and the needs of the learner”. Which is true, up to a certain point. In this training course, however, we focused more on the needs of the trainers for them to contribute to an unforgettable learning experience for the participants.


How I as a trainer make this fun for me?

What can I learn and take away from this?

How to create purposeful and engaging activities?

The training course was meant for trainers, youth workers and youth leaders from Romania, Denmark, Croatia, Czech Republic, Slovakia and Latvia with experience in working with groups and using outdoor activities as a tool for learning. We were playing around with different methods in different contexts, designing and leading various activities. As an example we used TreeHouse building, so participants spend half of day 10 metres above the ground 🙂


experience – wake up, meet the team, climb trees and build the TreeHouse platform. A real life simulation of project management, group Dynamics and individual commitment.

reflect – without reflection, we went blindly on our way, creating more unintended consequences, and failing to achieve anything useful.

experiment – designing and leading various outdoor activities, improving and building upon each other’s ideas. Saying ”yes” and accepting whatever comes.

Participants from Romania Romania, Denmark Denmark, Croatia Croatia, Czech Republic  Czechia, Slovakia Slovakia and Latvia Latvia had a chance to participate in this TC.
