Project type

Selected participants

The project comprised the construction of a course designed to train youth workers on the issue of how to develop civic and social skills, and active participation in social change, in young people. The methodology that the project used and that participants learnt, is the collection of stories through autobiographical methodologies and multimedia (video interview, photo narration). The idea is that, through the pleasure of collecting stories and create multimedia narrative, young people can learn many things like:

  • to know the recent history, through the stories of those who participated in the battles for civil rights and democracy, namely those achievements that we often take for granted, but which have been decisive for the creation of democracy;
  • to learn more about the current social, political and economic reality, that often appear too complex and boring for a young audience, but it can be better understood through concrete and real stories;
  • to know the possible solutions that have been designed and sometimes implemented by people and organizations, especially civil society; stories that demonstrate that it is possible to create a change, and that can help young people not to give up dreaming, want a better world, and become their own agents of change.

Participants of the training were youth workers and youth leaders from Italy Italy, Bulgaria Bulgaria, Romania Romania, Poland Poland,  Estonia Estonia and Slovakia Slovakia. There were 4 participants from each country.
