It will bring together youth workers and youth leaders from EU and non-EU countries, such us Slovakia, Czech Republic, Italy, Turkey, Armenia, Ukraine, Moldova.

  • To share the best practice of SPOSA in hosting young people with disabilities with participants working in the field of EVS,

According to the need assessment on the inclusion of young people with fewer opportunities in EVS projects, we can easily notice that many youth organizations don't involve them in their EVS projects. The reason is the general fear among EVS organizations on how to integrate those young people in daily activities of the project, how to work with them and to what specifically to pay attention to. In order to change the situation for better, the contact making event ''Include us in EVS'' aims to increase the number of young people with fewer opportunities, particularly with disabilities in European Voluntary Service projects.

       According to the need assessment on the inclusion of young people with fewer opportunities in European Voluntary Service (EVS) projects, it is easy to notice that many youth organizations don't involve them in their European Voluntary Service (EVS) projects. The reason is the general fear among the organizations on how to integrate those young people in daily activities of the project, how to work with them and to what specifically to pay attention.
       Hence, "Include us in EVS" project aims to increase the number of young people with fewer opportunities, especially young people with disability in European Voluntary Service projects, to equip the project participants with knowledge about young people with fewer opportunities, to share the best practice of hosting them in European Voluntary Service projects, to develop the personal and professional competences of those working with them.

This will be the time when participants will get to know the Armenian reality related to the integration of young people with disabilities in social life. In the meantime, participants will start to make comparisons, by finding out the similarities and differences with their local communities.
       A practical workshop was delivered by partner organization from Slovakia on how to work with autistic young people by sharing their methods and giving some hints to other participants. During the project 2 Armenian young people with autism will be invited who did short-term European Voluntary Service in Slovakia. This would be the time of sharing experience and most importantly give a real example of involvement of young people with autism in European Voluntary Service projects.

Long term EVS project in Poland,
funded by Erasmus+ Programme
6-8 Noiembrie 2015 - Modulul de Coaching si Leadership in cadrul Cursului de Lunga Durata in Formare de Formatori

În perioada 6-8 noiembrie, 20 de reprezentati ai ONG-urilor de tineret din Republica Moldova au participat la cel de-al saptelea modul de instruire in cadrul proiectului "Promovarea educatiei non-formale de calitate in domeniul tineret in Republica Moldova". Modulul intitulat "Coaching si leadership", face parte din Cursul de Lunga durata in Formare de Formatori si este implementat de Institutul de Instruire in Dezvoltare "MilleniuM", cu suportul financiar al Ministerului Tineretului si Sportului al Republicii Moldova, in cadrul Programului de Granturi 2015.
       In timpul instruirii participantii au pus in dezbatere calitatile care ar trebui sa le posede un lider, cum ar trebuie sa se manifesta acesta, dar si despre coaching ca metoda de dezvoltare personala si profesionla.
       In timpul modulului s-au desfasurat o serie de activitati printre care si "Open space tehnology", activitate care a permis participantilor sa discute si sa afle informatii din mai multe domenii. Formatorii au avut posibilitatea sa aleaga un subiect in baza caruia au invitat ceilalti participanti pentru a discuta si a ajunge la o intelegere asupra unei teme.
       Liderul atelierului de discutie "Metode de feedback", Elena Blidari a spus: "Eu cred ca abilitatile unui lider depind foarte mult de personalitatea lui, dar cred ca un lider ar trebui sa fie motivant si motivat sa faca ceva util. Un lider ar trebui sa cunoasca stilurile de invatare/lucru al persoanelor si sa poata depista asta cat mai curand posibil in echipa in care el o conduce si tinand cont de capacitatile persoanelor, sa gaseasca cheita care sa-l faca lider intr-un anumit domeniu. Am discutat si la clubul formatorilor, dar si in cadrul acestui modul si am ajuns la concluzia ca un lider trebuie sa aiba carizma, motivatie, dar si posibilitatea de a crea un grup. Grupul pe care l-am creat eu a avut scopul de analiza metodele de feedback in urma unui training, dar si cum putem afla parerea sincera a participantilor. Am afla de la colegi ce metode de lucru non-formale folosesc ei in astfel de cazuri si consider ca am facut schimb de multe lucruri utile unii de la altii".
       Vlad Caragea, liderul atelierului "Interculturalitatea sau Transculturalitatea?" spune ca a inceput discutiile pornind de la definirea acestor termini. "Desi parca la prima vedere sensurile acestor cuvinte sunt egale, de fapt nu este asa si din acest motiv am decis sa cautam in DEX definitiile. Dupa ce fiecare dintre noi a inteles corect ce reprezinta ele, am incercat sa le analizam si sa le transpunem la viata reala. Am analizat situatiile pe plan extern, dar si cele din tara noastra si am ajuns la concluzia ca sunt unele aspect la care mai avem de lucrat, deoarece oficial cunoastem si acceptam unele cazuri, insa cand ne izbim de realitate uitam totul. Un exemplu in acest caz ar fi si criza emigrantilor din Europa".
       Natalia Candu, liderul atelierului "Cariera si viata personala" spune ca in cadrul discutiilor a abordat un subiect extreme de importat in ziua de astazi. "Desi aud in ultimul timp tot mai multe persoane care spun ca ei pot imbina perfect viata personala cu cea profesionala, oricum una dintre acestea are uneori unele spatii goale. Impreuna cu participantii care au acceptat invitatia la discutie am incercat sa aflam criteriile care ar permite sa imbinam aceste doua laturi si pot spune ca sunt lucruri importante, dar uneori noi nu le observam. Una dintre acestea ar fi sa plecam de la serviciu atunci cand se termina programul, pentru a avea timp si pentru viata personala, insa nu intotdeauna reusim sa ne adaptam acestei cerinte fata de noi".
       In timpul modulului, consultantul principal al Directiei tineret din cadrul Ministerului Tineretului si Sportului, Ilie Ciorchina a venit cu un mesaj de felicitare pentru toate persoanele din sala pentru activitatea lor si a incurajat participantii sa continue ceea ce fac. Pe langa felicitari, Ilie Ciorchina a mentionat si despre Programul de Granturi care va fi lansat pentru anul viitor. "Vreau sa va informez ca in cel mai scurt timp se va lansa o noua runda de Granturi, deja pentru anul 2016 si va indemn sa participati, deoarece toate ONG-urile fac lucruri frumoase pentru societate si fiecare proiect merita sa prinda viata".
Proiectul "Promovarea educatiei non-formale de calitate in domeniul tineret in Republica Moldova" este implementat de Institutul de Instruire in Dezvoltare "MilleniuM", cu suportul financiar oferit de catre Ministerul Tineretului si Sportului al Republicii Moldova in cadrul Programului de Granturi 2015.

6 Noiembrie 2015 - Competenta interculturala prin ochii formatorilor din Moldova

20 de formatori cu experienta din sectorul asociativ de tineret, au participat pe data de 6 noiembrie la sedinta Clubului Formatorilor, unde au avut oportunitatea sa-si dezvolte abilitatile de traineri. Sedinta s-a axat pe tema "Competenta interculturala", aceasta fiind una dintre ariile Setului European de Competente a Formatorilor.

       Cei 20 de participanti au fost impartiti in 5 grupuri pentru activitatea "Turul Galeriilor" care le-a permis sa-si expuna parerea asupra competentei interculturale, dar si sa inteleaga care este rolul acesteia.

"Am aflat opinia multor participanti si pot spune ca oricum nu am ajuns impreuna la un numitor comun, deoarece fiecare are punctual sau de vedere. Pot spune cu siguranta ca ceea ce cred cei din jur m-a ajutat sa vad din alt unghi acest subiect. Asi putea lua o carte despre "Competenta interculturala", insa efectul nu va fi acelasi ca atunci cand discut si aflu alte pareri", a spus participanta Aliona Placinta.
       In timpul sedintei, consultantul Directiei tineret din cadrul Ministerului Tineretului si Sportului, Carina Eni, a venit cu informatii despre Programul de Granturi pentru anul 2016, dar si cu un mesaj pentru participanti. "Ma bucur sa observ aici reprezentanti din diferite ONG-uri si din diferite orase, deoarece asta demonstreaza ca ne pasa de tineri si viitorul lor. Vreau sa va spun ca Ministerului Tineretului si Sportului a sustinut, sustine si va sustine si in viitor acele idei si proiecte inovatoare ale tinerilor, pentru ca pana la urma tinerii sunt forta care misca lucrurile. In cel mai scurt timp vom lansa Programul de Granturi pentru anul 2016 si vreau sa va rog, dar si sa va incurajez sa aplicati, deoarece faceti lucruri frumoase si utile societatii", a spus Carina Eni, consultantul Directiei tineret din cadrul Ministerului Tineretului si Sportului.
       Aceasta sedinta este una din cele 8 planificate de Institutul de Instruire in Dezvoltare "MilleniuM" in cadrul proiectului "Promovarea educatiei non-formale de calitate in domeniul tineret in Republica Moldova", sustinut financiar de catre Ministerul Tineretului si Sportului al Republicii Moldova, in cadrul Programului de Granturi 2015.

       Unul dintre formatorii prezenti la sedinta, Cristina Coroban spune: "Aceste intalniri ma ajuta sa cunosc si alti traineri de la care invat lucruri utile, dar si noi metode de lucru. De exemplu, astazi mi-a placut subiectul in legatura cu alegerea si facilitarea dinamicii grupului astfel incat sa conduca spre diferite metode de instruire si consider ca informatiile obtinute ma vor ajuta mult atunci cand voi planifica programul trainingului. Am avut posibilitatea sa discut si cu alti formatori despre problemele care pot aparea in timpul unei instruiri si impreuna am gasit metode de solutionare."
       Potrivit organizatorilor, sedit?a a incercat sa-i ajute pe formatori sa faciliteze procesul de invatate atat individuala, cat si in grup prin metode non-formale, astfel incat participantii sa inteleaga mesajul corect si sa-l poata transmita mai departe.

9-11 Octombrie 2015 - Modulul de Comunicare si Managementul conflictului in cadrul Cursului de Lunga Durata in Formare de Formatori

20 de reprezentati ai ONG-urilor de tineret din Republica Moldova au participat in perioada 9-11 octombrie, la cel de-al saselea modul de instruire in cadrul proiectului "Promovarea educatiei non-formale de calitate in domeniul tineret in Republica Moldova" implementat de Institutul de Instruire in Dezvoltare "MilleniuM".
       In cadrul modulului intitulat "Comunicarea si managementul conflictelor", participantii au dobandit cunostintele necesare pentru intelegerea si aplicarea medierii si astfel pot interveni usor asupra diferitor tipuri de conflicte in activitatea lor. Ei si-au dezvoltat abilitatile necesare managementului conflictelor si au format abilitati de pastrare a neutralitatii si impartialitatii pozitiei din perspectiva trainerului.
       Trainerul proiectului, Natalia Ciobanu considera ca atunci cand apare un conflict in timpul instruirilor, formatorii trebuie sa acorde timp si spatiu pentru a discuta cu participantii. "Trebuie sa aflam care sunt nevoile fiecarei persoane si sa gasim un compromis. Aici este necesar sa aplicam tehnica pe care am studiat-o la comunicarea non-violenta: observarea, exprimarea emotiilor, a necesitatilor si a solicitarilor."
       În timpul modulului s-au desfasurat o serie de activitati care i-a ajutat pe formatori sa inteleaga cat de importanta este comunicarea atunci cand exista neintelegeri.
       Eduard Soltanici, unul dintre participantii programului, afirma ca in sfarsit a inteles cum sa faca fata unui conflict. "In urma acestui modul am invatat sa identific factorii care determina escaladarea conflictelor si sa identific tehnici variate pentru imbunatatirea procesului de comunicare si negociere dintre diferite parti."
       In timpul modulului, viceministrul Tineretului si Sportului, Andrei Spinu, a discutat cu participantii despre posibilitatile ONG-urilor de a aplica la Programul de Granturi pentru anul 2016. "Eu am spus de multe ori ca problemele care nu sunt rezolvate de stat, din diverse motive, sunt solutionate de ONG-urile care se implica, iar aici vorbesc si de activitatea Institului de Instruire in Dezvoltare "MilleniuM", care face lucruri frumoase si utile societatii. Din acest motiv va incurajez sa aplicati la Programul de Granturi pentru anul 2016 si sa veniti cu noi proiecte utile."
       Dupa aceasta instruire, participantii vor trebui sa aplice cele invatate si vor desfasura un training informativ in cadrul ONG-urilor din care fac parte.

9 Octombrie 2015 - O noua Sedinta a Clubului Formatorilor

20 de formatori cu experien?a din sectorul asociativ, au participat pe data de 9 octombrie la sedinta a Clubului Formatorilor, unde au avut ocazia sa-si dezvolte abilitatile de traineri. Sedinta s-a axat pe a doua arie de competenta, "Design-ul Programului de Training" din Setul European de Competente a Formatorilor.
       În timpul sedintei, participantii au aflat ce metode sa foloseasca si cum sa creeze un program de training bazat pe nevoile de invatare ale participantilor, cum sa gestioneze dinamica grupului si cum sa calmeze situatiile dificile in sala de training.
       Participanta, Elena Blidari, considera ca aceasta sedinta a ajutat-o sa gaseasca raspuns la unele intrebari, dar a pus in fata sa si unele provocari noi. "Pot afirma cu certitudine ca a fost o sedinta in urma careia am invatat in primul rand ce competente trebuie sa posede un formator la capitolul designul sesiunii de training non-formal. Mi-a placut ca in cadrul sedintei am analizat fiecare competenta din capitolul respectiv din perspectiva criteriilor si indicatorilor de performanta a lor. Pe langa partea informativa, aceasta sedinta mi-a lasat si cateva provocari referitor la criteriile la care ar trebui sa lucrez atat ca personalitate, cat si ca trainer." spune participanta Elena Blidari.
       Un alt participant prezent la sedinta, Vlad Caragea, considera ca a obtinut cunostintele de care avea nevoie datorita abilitatilor de prezentare a trainerilor. "Apreciez ca desi este un subiect mai complicat, trainerii au explicat detaliat tot cursul, iar astfel am reusit sa inteleg mult mai bine aceasta arie din Setul de Competente".
       Unul dintre formatorii sedintei, Natalia Ciobanu, a demonstrat cat de importanta este creativitatea in design-ul unei instruiri sau activitati. "Cand nu avem posibilitatea sa aflam in avans care sunt nevoile participantilor, trebuie sa ne adaptam programului solicitat. Este important sa acordam timp la inceputul trainingului pentru a afla care sunt nevoile si asteptarile membrilor si sa avem un set de metode care ne vor permite sa desfasuram activitatile dorite de ei. Atunci cand vine vorba de educatie si designe totul tine de creativitatea noastra si in ce masura folosim noi instrumentele pe care le avem la dispozitie."
       Aceasta sedinta este una din cele 8 planificate de Institutul de Instruire in Dezvoltare "MilleniuM" in cadrul proiectului "Promovarea educatiei non-formale de calitate in domeniul tineret in Republica Moldova", sustinut financiar de catre Ministerul Tineretului si Sportului al Republicii Moldova, in cadrul Programului de Granturi 2015.

"MilleniuM" Training and Development Institute anouncess selection of volunteer for Long term EVS project "DOWN TO THE RABBIT HOLE" (1 July 2015 - 30 June 2016) in Viterbo, Italy.
       The project can offer two kinds of activity:
       Fattoria Alice is an ecological farm where volunteers will be working with people having mental illness (usually young adults or adults). Volunteers will be a support in normal working day in the farm: animal care, work in the shop, growing vegetables, manual works and other types of activity. The participants will have really strong influence on daily timetable, they can also choose their scope of duties. Main task of our future volunteers will be to help, support and control the activities of people with mental illness. They will also have a chance to participate in the process of growing and production of organic food. They will also prepare the box for ethical purchasing groups (community-supported agriculture).
       Since ever, agricultural and rural societies, all over the Europe, have developed experiences promoting different practices and forms of solidarity, social assistance and social inclusion. Social farming includes farming practices aimed at promoting disadvantaged people’s rehabilitation and care and/or towards the integration of people with ‘low contractual capacity’ (i.e.: psychophysical disabilities, drug addicts, minors, emigrants). The special added value of social farming is the possibility for disadvantaged people to being integrated in a living context, where their personal potential may be valued and enhanced. The presence and the relationship with the farmers, the contact with other living beings – animal and vegetal ones – the assumption of specific responsibilities are some of the key-features of the rehabilitative practices operated in Alice.
       All over rural Europe, there is a widespread and rich patrimony of diverse agricultural realities . We’d like our volunteers to become well aware of this and maybe take an active part in exporting our practices in their country or actively propose theirs in ours. Moreover we wants our volunteers to focus on the good relation between practices of farming and practices for social inclusion. Speaking of people with, in this case, fewer opportunities, this can be a really added value.

       Centro diurno di Montefiascone. It is based in a daily center in the city of Montefiascone, created for people with mental disability (children and adults). Every working day in center, volunteers will have a chance to participate in other types of activity.

  • Monday and Wednesday are days for manual art and do it yourself activities (make decorations, figures, painting etc.). Tuesday and Thursday are days for recycling and the kitchen laboratories. It’s a great opportunity to learn how to save resources and to discover Italian cuisine and propose dishes from each country of provenience of our volunteers. The presence of our volunteers can add a great value in this activity, characterizing it with a multicultural meaning that our volunteers will bring on it.
  • Friday is day designated for sport activity. Center’s wards are usually going to the swimming pool, where they are doing physical exercises, or, in the summer period, to nearest lake to rest and enjoy the nature.

Our future volunteer will have to help caretakers and actively participating, together with wards, in the center activity. In both types of our activity (in the farm or in the center) volunteers will be supported by workers, caretakers and other Italian volunteers. During all the work time he can expect their help, attention and openness to new suggestions.

THE PRACTICAL ARRANGEMENTS
       We’ll use a six month sheet shift (6 month in the farm, 6 month in the daily center).
       Working hours: Volunteers will have activities from Monday to Friday, usually 6 hours per day (the total won’t ever exceeded 35 hours, including Italian lesson and meal time when they are part of activities).
       Holidays: Volunteers will have two day off every month to take whenever they like.
       Accommodation: Project is based in Viterbo, where volunteers will live. The apartment is in the city center (via Monte Asolone, 8) and it has 4 single rooms, one for each volunteers. It is provided with all facilities and a wi fi internet connection.

"MilleniuM" Training and Development Institute anouncess selection of participants for Training Course "From New to Truly Social Media – Successfully applying IT in Youth Work" (12-21 September 2015) in Potsdam-Berlin, Germany.
       The beginning of the third millennium goes together not only with the dawn of digitalized media technologies, internet, websites, computer multimedia, video games, augmented reality, etc. It is also marked by a social revolution initiated through the interconnection of users throughout the planet. From an industrial revolution over a commercial revolution the creation of social media has made it possible to potentially reach into every household, allow for individual contacts of literally billions of people. In essence more and more persons are ‘online’ for ever longer time with a realistic vision that most of all people might be online forever in a near future.
       The ones to be reached first by this revolution is the youngest generation. According to a U.S. research 8–18 year-old already in 2010 devoted an equivalent of an adult working day into using entertainment media. Kids and youth are also the ones most fascinated – and occupied – in manipulating and distributing media content, thereby creating the basis of their own kind of ‘social media’. This has deep implications for future youth work. Youth workers on the other hand have often less media competence than their entrusted youngsters, while they have more social competences. This creates a difficult gap in the perception of the problem, which this training course attempts to bridge.
       The Training Course "From New to Truly Social Media" will gather 36 youth workers and youth leaders from 21 countries. Participants will be introduced into the specific internet and social media terminology. They will learn about the basic knowledge of ‘code’, improve their knowledge of highly applicable software and raise their digital competence in presentation software, survey software, documentation software. They will see, how to apply e-Learning tools in their daily work. They will learn about specific EU initiatives that promote e-learning, the accessibility of the internet, increasing e-commerce and also e-governance. We will make them versatile in opening the box of knowledge within the internet. They will also enhance their knowledge about telecommunication and internet technology.
       The training approach stretches from introductions through experts to discussions among participants. Participants will meet programs of social media and creators of its content. We will raise the awareness about the dynamics of the ongoing social media revolution through encounters with activists. But we will also create encounters and discussions with youth itself in that public debate. We will shed a light on the cultural reflections caused by the rise of social media. Throughout the course, participants will learn how to create social media content themselves. They will learn to set up their own platforms and work together on possible tools of their future work.

       Deadline - 5 July 2015. Only selected person will be contacted.

"MilleniuM" Training and Development Institute anouncess selection of participants for Training Course "Keys to Employability - soft skills development for empowering young people" (7-16 September 2015) in Aghveran, Armenia.
       Educational systems in contemporary Europe are facing many difficult challenges. Every year many young people graduate from high-school or university with an often high level of theoretical knowledge, but at the same time they lack practical skills that are essential on the labor market. As we live in a time of economical crisis and the unemployment rate among young adults is alarmingly high, many of those graduates struggle to find a job and are not able to start a successful career.
       As this problem has been widely acknowledged among organizations working with unemployed young people, there are various projects helping them developing competences essential in the process of entering a labor market. However, in many cases the youth workers still focus on hard competences and do not pay enough attention to developing soft skills, which are equally important. We believe that young people can become much more successful both in personal and professional life when they master certain set of social abilities.
       The proposed Training Course is designed to gather youth workers and leaders and provide them with an opportunity to explore and experience some new methods of developing soft skills that can be used while working with youngsters in their local communities. They will have a chance to go through an intensive training during which they will test several practical tools that aim at fostering various skills and abilities, such as team work, leadership, effective learning and others. Moreover, participants will have an opportunity to design and test some new methods that can be used in their everyday work. In the second part of the Training Course participants will also attend some sessions aiming at teaching them how to help young people find alternative forms of employment, using and promoting the concept of international youth mobility.

    Objectives:
  • To equip youth workers and leaders with tools and methods designed to develop social skills among unemployed young people
  • To provide participants with the opportunity to exchange experience and expertise in the field of preventing unemployment among youth
  • To develop some new methods and tools that can be used in participants’ everyday work
  • To explore potential of international youth mobility as one of the opportunities for young people to start and develop their career
  • To establish a network of like-minded organizations and individuals, who are interested in the further exchange on the link between theory and practice of ICD

Social entrepreneurship is an innovative way of civic engagement and participation, as it offers a chance to enter the public sphere and the labor market at the same time.

    It is an attempt to give an appropriate answer to 2 IMPORTANT ISSUES in youth field::
  • UNEMPLOYMENT – It is a fact, that there is a high percentage of unemployment of young people in EU & EECA countries. We believe that one of the possible answers to the present issue of employability is to promote the engagement and giving the proper tools of social entrepreneurship to project participants.
  • SUSTAINABILITY OF NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATIONS (NFO) – Most of youth NGOs around Europe and especially in EECA countries are facing the problem of sustainability. Most of them are depended on grants and changing their priorities according to the priorities of foundation.

In order to follow their mission organizations need permanent funding. Social entrepreneurship can be a response for this challenge, as it is the attempt to draw upon business techniques to find solutions to social problems. This concept may be applied to a variety of organizations with different sizes, aims, and beliefs, including youth organizations, that we are mostly concentrated on.

14 October 2015 - Deadline for application to participate in Training Course "ELECT! - Election and Citizenship Today" in Copenhagen, Denmark

"MilleniuM" Training and Development Institute anouncess selection of participants for Training Course "ELECT! - Election and Citizenship Today" (1-8 December 2015) in Copenhagen, Denmark.
       The aim of the TC is to foster a shared understanding among youth civil society groups organizations about democracy-building and active citizenship across Europe.
       To this end, the TC uses the context of the 'election' to unpack the different aspects of democracy-building, which are perspectives, participation, process and press.
       The starting point of the TC is taht democracy and inclusive citizenship today are contested concepts across Europe due to historically different experiences and to recent socio-economic and political developments. Participation and the process of electionselectoral processes are therefore both challenged in this context but also provide a fertile ground for youth civil society to contest existing structures and to make their voices heard.
       One of the objectives of the TC is therefore to work on tools and strategies that youth organizations can use in the event of elections to contest and participate in changing structures in society. During the TC, the participants will also participate in an election observation course and meet with various local stakeholders of the general elections that recently took place in Denmark prior to the TC.

    Participants profile:
  • Youth workers and youth leaders interested in exploring new ways working with young people
  • Having previous experience in the field of the Training Course and being ready to share their knowledge and methods with other participants
  • Interested in setting further co-operation with similar organizations from other European countries
  • Being able to communicate fluently in English.

Betzavta questions the traditional and unsatisfactory paths of conventional conflict resolution with surprising seminar units and presents in its place the concept of creative conflict resolution. With the help of a special conflict dilemma method, it achieves the essential conditions for tolerant social interaction: the willingness to mutually recognize the right to personal freedom. On this basis, the four steps of democratic decision-making provide the conflicting parties with a valuable tool for dealing with conflicts in a novel way. Betzavta is an internationally renowned democracy education programme used in schools and non-school educational institutions.

Youth Exchange "Mobile",

"MilleniuM" Training and Development Institute anouncess selection of participants for Youth Exchange "Mobile" 9-15 March 2014, in Trebnitz, Germany.
PROJECT IDEA:
       Mobility is one of the key words in the society of today. On the one hand mobility means freedom: to be on the move, to travel, to discover new places, to get to know new people. On the other hand however it is a duty, a challenge of today's professional world for young generation. Those who search for their dream job, must be ready to leave their familiar places and look for their professional self-fulfillment in other cities, countries or continents.
       Mobility seems to reflect the spirit of our times. It seems to be omnipresent. Yet is mobility in fact the reality of everyone? Is it not rather a privilege of some people, whereas the majority is actually excluded from it? How can one see mobility as a chance? How can mobility in form of a training abroad, a voluntary service or a youth exchange become reality for everyone, that is also for these young people, whose access to international mobility offers is limited? And even more: how can one convince those excluded that the international youth seminars, training programs or voluntary services abroad are also accessible for them.
       "Mobile" is a series of training, exchange and meeting events that deal with the issue of mobility. Through participating in the project also those who live a rather "static" life should be given a chance to participate in mobility. Thus various socially disadvantaged groups are invited to participate in the project, in order to meet people from different countries, discuss different perception of mobility and participate in a workshops on empowerment and inter-cultural competence.
PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
       During "Mobile" 30 young Poles, Germans, Moldovans and Ukrainians deal with chances that mobility gives to young people today and at the same time learn how to take part in mobility. During the project they participate in discussions, workshops and trainings and by doing so they discover ways that make them a part of inter-cultural society. At the same time they learn to be active and take the initiative not only in the context of their own lives but also of their local community.
       The main aim of the project is on the one hand to show young disadvantaged people that also they can participate in mobility and on the other hand to encourage them to become active in their local community, which would improve their chances in private and professional life.
       Through meeting with people from other countries they have a chance to create an international network and by doing so to become a part of the international community. At the same time they become disseminators of the mobility idea and role models for other young people from their community.
AIM:
       The main aim of the project is on the one hand to show young disadvantaged people that also they can participate in mobility and on the other hand to encourage them to become active in their local community, which would improve their chances in private and professional life.

    OBJECTIVES:
  • Empowerment of disadvantaged youth
  • Support of mobility of disadvantaged youth
  • International youth meeting
  • Inter-cultural education

TARGET GROUP:
       Young people at the age of 15 to 19 from SOS - Children's Villages and Children's Homes from Germany, Poland, Moldova, Ukraine.

13-20 April 2014 - Training Course "Gender Equality: From Theory to Reality" in Yerevan, Armenia

From the 13th to 20th of April "Youth Breath" NGO hosted under the same roof 30 young people from 12 different countries in the frame of the seminar "Gender Equality: From Theory to Reality".
        The project started on the 14th of April at 10 sharp. Why did I also mention the time? The reason is simple: the trainers were very precise and the participants, quite responsible people.
        The session started with "getting to know" activities. The activity was followed by the introduction of the stuff and their responsibilities. Then the participants had the chance to introduce themselves. The introduction of the hostel, its stuff was presented to the participants as well. After an energizer the participants of the seminar were delivered a questionnaire with a form of sun-cross (the symbol of eternity) to get more information about the participants, e.g. who is a vegetarian, who knows how to say ‘hello' in Armenia, who did/is doing an EVS, who knows more than 4 languages. Then they gathered outside the training room to answer the questions on the designed sun-cross on the ground.
        Due to the marshmallow tower activity the participants had the chance to build trust and become a real group by listening to each other. They were given spaghetti, marshmallow and a scotch to make the highest and stable tower with the marshmallow on the top.
        Due to the 'City Rally in Yerevan' activity the participants had the chance to explore the Armenian reality. They were divided into 5 groups and were given a questionnaire with some gender related questions to be asked to the citizens. They had a possibility to explore the sightseeing of the capital.         Reflection groups: After the dinner they were divided into 'Armenian families' with their own family name to discuss the day, the seminar, to talk about their expectations and suggestions.
        During the presentation of the 'City Rally in Yerevan' the participants shared their opinion about the city, the culture, the way of thinking, some gender related issues, etc. It was nice to see how they perceived the culture and traditions of the host country.
        The seminar was so interesting, informative and full of activities that I'll not be able to present all, so I'll speak only about some of them.
        So, the second day the participants were assigned to find some information, do a short research, a group discussion and finally a presentation on the following gender related topics: GENDER, MASCULINITY and FEMINILITY, GENDER MAINSTREAM, FEMINISM, and LGBT.
        After this activity again the participants were divided into two large groups, and each group had to discuss certain topics with one of the trainers. The trainer read loudly a statement, and the group members had to express their position, whether they agreed with the statement or not, each of them was to express his/her individual point of view and if the arguments were strong enough, the members sometimes even changed their positions. All in all there were some arguable statements, such as, men and women should have the same rights and responsibilities, sex requires love, it's important to keep virginity before marriage, the husband shouldn't earn less than the wife, etc. All the participants were sincere and the discussion was really interesting and open.
        The intercultural evening was a success: national music, dances, food, flags, country presentations, quiz, etc.
        During the 1st study visit to the ‘PINK ARMENIA' NGO which deals with gender issues, the participants got to know about the activities of the NGO and had a discussion on gender equality, typical gender issues present in Armenia, and Armenian reality in the frame of the topic.
        The second part of the day was dedicated to the gender issues present in the countries of the participants.
        The next day the participants had a chance to have another study visit to ‘Society without Violence' NGO to discuss domestic violence, violence towards women caused by different circumstances. Very tough cases of violence towards women were introduced to the participants. Later some questions were asked and a hot discussion started on the topic.
        After lunch an excursion was organized to the Armenian pagan temple Garni and Geghard monastery. The participants were excited by the Armenian nature, picturesque views and architecture. The culmination of the day was the dinner in one of the best Armenian restaurants, were traditional food and wine was served. Full of positive emotions the day came to its end.
        The next days the participants presented their organizations and the NGOs they work for. Youth in Action program and Erasmus + were introduced to the participants.
        In 3 small groups the participants were introduced EVS, youth exchanges, training and networking and they were free to ask questions for more information, in case they want to apply to any of them.
        After a musical energizer the participants were assigned to gather in their groups that they formed the day before to develop some ideas for future projects. Today, however, they were to write real projects, following the aims and the objectives. To reach their final goal, the 5 W questions were introduced to them. After the coffee break they presented their projects, which were accompanied by questions and discussions.
        The last day of the seminar: everyone is excited and they have the possibility to express their feelings, emotions, wishes and gratitude.
        After the participants were delivered the final evaluation papers and had free time to prepare for the Easter dinner and farewell party.

"MilleniuM" Training and Development Institute anouncess selection of participants for Training Course "Key-platform to Non-formal education" 30 May – 9 June 2014 in Lefkas, Greece.
       E-learning or on-line training course is a training technique which is based on the adjustment and supplying of pedagogical contents through an electronic means. The notion of e-learning comprises all tools, applications and the entirety of contents which are offered to a learner towards the end of his/her pedagogical training. Nowadays, the creation of Web 2.0, e-learning has developed and changed from a data storage space into a frame offering knowledge packs to the learner, becoming a tool centered on the efficiency of some knowledge and the socially constructed understanding & use of it. Thus, the learners (with or without trainers/ educators) can take part in the process of improvement of the content of the knowledge and know-how offered. The learners explore them, but they may also reshuffle them, reconstruct them, discuss them through the social media-networks, and translate them in foreign languages.
       In spite of the advantages and the educational value of e-learning and despite the importance of young people's educators' role and of the member of an organization involved in informal education, who contribute to enhancing the values, competences and attitudes of the young, e-learning in favor of the informal education agents has not yet developed.
       Nowadays in a context of swift development of our societies in terms of digital culture, with a view to ensure chance equality for the informal education agents (so that they can be trained and enriched in an equitable and sustained fashion) as well as to improve their functions, initiatives & interventions, we deem an urgent need to put our educational methods up to date in the field of informal education and to universalize and make available (or: share) our knowledge taking advantage of e-learning technologies.
       Within this frame, we wish to organize a training course in favor of 32 youth leaders and youth workers coming from 15 European countries (from the E.U., the Eastern Europe and the Caucasus) with a view to help them exchange their experiences and good practices and develop their competences about no-formal education of young people through the new technologies. During the course, the participants will piece together and develop a On line platform promoting the no-formal education centered on the Web in the interest of the youth leaders and youth workers, by taking advantage of the existing learning platform based on the Web, called "Moodle". The platform for non-formal learning which we wish to create relies on the contribution of social constructivism in the Internet pedagogy and helps to form some communities which will look into the pedagogical contents and activities. It will also allow them to create both an on-line learning environment and interactions, through the net, among the actors of non-formal education (youth workers, youth leaders and pedagogues).
       The basic aims of this TC course is to offer participants opportunity to acquire new knowledge, skills and competences of using modern learning and teaching online technologies based on well-known and confirmed theories of learning in the processes of planning, organizing, implementing and evaluating learning processes in non-formal learning activities. Also, the aim of the TC is to encourage participants to use modern technologies and its advantages in their non-formal learning activities and youth work in general. The more specific aims are to provide participants space to share their experiences and views of using online technologies in youth work, - its advantages and disadvantages; to commonly work with help of trainers and facilitators in developing example of online course using well-known web application "Moodle" and its various learning modules; and to develop their own e-learning platforms for the purposes of their own youth projects.

    OBJECTIVES:
  • To allow youth workers and youth leaders from different European countries, Eastern Europe and the Caucasus, to share their experiences and acquire skills in non-formal education field by using newest technologies in order to allow them to play a crucial role in educating young people more easy and efficient.

21 December 2013 - Premiera filmului "Chisinau din zori pana la amurg"

Cinematograful Odeon a gazduit pe data de 21.12.2013 ora 19:00, un eveniment remarcabil in cinematografia autohtona si anume premiera filmului documentar "Chisinau din zori pana la amurg" care reprezinta viata cotidiana a Chisinauienilor, o societate care ii impune sa aspire spre un ideal inexistent.
       Urmarind acest film putem deduce ca viata in Chisinau nu este un basm, observam munca istovitoare a lucratorilor dintr-o mina de piatra, urmarim agitatia de zi cu zi a unei vanzatoare care iti incepe lucru odata cu aparitia zorilor. Dupa cum deja cunoastem, moldovenii sunt un popor inventiv care pot sa se adapteze mediului inconjurator, lucru care il putem observa si in film. Forta acestui documentar este sinceritatea eroilor, cu ajutorul lor aflam informatii cu privire la salarii, conditiile de munca, serviciile de sanatate, somaj, politica si emigrare. Aceste lucruri care suna in mod natural devin o sursa de cunostinte specifice despre viata locuitorilor din Chisinau.
       Filmul a fost realizat in cadrul proiectului polonez educational de film "Lumea din zori pana la amurg". Astfel Chisinaul a intrat in lista celor 8 capitale din lume despre care au fost realizate filme documentare: Tokyo, Beijing, Kiev, Moscova, Minsk in 2011 si Tbilisi, Ierevan si Chisinau in 2013.
       Grandiosul proiect cinematic o fost initiat si implementat de documentalistii polonezi creatori si critici de film in colaborare cu studentii de la Academia de Muzica, Teatru si Arte Plastice din Chisinau.

       Therefore, the training course elaborated on the potentials of new media and social networks for democratic change in Europe by introducing a broad variety of tools available, comparing different forms of social media tools in regards to their impact and by promoting the use of those tools in local and international youth work in order to foster democratic youth participation, particularly among hard to reach youth.
       In terms of methodology, the training course applied non-formal education and exercise several tools with the participants. During 8 days through different exercises, discussions about practices and exchange of experience about democratic movements participants had chance to created a small scale media campaigns to promote a self-organized local event on a crucial topic of relevance for local youth. During the training course participants had chance to meet with local youth and had study visits to TUMO center of new media and creative technologies, as well as to have meeting with "Knowledge Development Center" representatives in Dilijan.
       The training course was funded by Youth in Action programme of the European Commission and is organised and hosted by "Youth Cooperation Centre of Dilijan" NGO (YCCD).

       The training course "Against Discrimination – A Tool Box" aims to provide youth leaders and educators with new ideas for workshops and training sessions in their work with marginalized young people facing discrimination in their community.
       Nowadays discrimination takes many forms in modern Europe. People are discriminated for their skin color, their religion, their gender, origin, sexual orientation and the school they visited and the district they live in. Discrimination often translates into fewer chances for personal development, weakened self-confidence and as a consequence into limited opportunities for employment. For these reasons many civil society organizations work in the field of anti-discrimination by fostering tolerance and aiming to empower young people to overcome the societal stereotypes that hamper the personal freedom and right for self-development.
       Along this line, the training course intends to share methods of anti-discrimination work with its participants in order to strengthen their daily work with young people. Workshops, simulation exercises, role plays and debates will be exercised with the participants to give them a learning experience and to explain them their strength and weaknesses. The participants will receive time to design own exercises based on the made experiences in order to create a small tool box of new exercises that can be applied within their programme activities on local level or in international encounters.

14 March 2012 - Deadline for application to be participant in Training Course "Educational Simulation Game"

Are you interested in designing, testing, and implementing a simulation game that addresses historical issues related to Moldova's developing democracy? Would you like to collaborate with simulation-game experts, historians, international and local civil society leaders, and other volunteers like yourself?
       "MilleniuM" Training and Development Institute is pleased to announce the opening of participant selection for the Training Course as part of the project "Negotiating Through Transition: Simulation Games for Teaching Civic Engagement in the Post-Soviet Moldova" to be held March 20-25, 2012 in Chisinau, Moldova.
       The project's objective is to develop a simulation game tailored to Moldova's history that will impel participants to address the specific concerns of Moldova as a post-Soviet, nascent democracy. Selected participants will join previous simulation game designers and facilitators, historians, civil society leaders, Peace Corps volunteers, and other local volunteers for a five-day workshop in Chisinau to develop, test, and translate a Moldova-specific simulation game. Local volunteers will then have the opportunity to travel throughout Moldova to administer the game that they helped to create. The network of the global Humanity in Action organization, the local NGO MilleniuM, Peace Corps Moldova, and Moldovan volunteers seeks to promote a deeper understanding of Moldova's historical legacy regarding democratic processes and inspire civic leadership among the participants.

Educational Simulation Game

Humanity in Action, "MilleniuM" Training and Development Institute and the U.S. Peace Corps are excited to announce a collaborative project coming to Moldova this spring: Simulation games for teaching human rights and active citizenship in post-Soviet Moldova. This innovative project will develop Moldova-specific simulation games and oversee initial facilitation of the games in civic education settings.
       Since declaring independence from the Soviet Union in 1991, The Republic of Moldova has faced many challenges on its path towards democracy. As markets opened, previously suppressed cultural and ethnic diversity came to the forefront of the political discourse, with diverse social groups seeking to define new rolls vis-a-vis the state and each other in the context of a history of ethnic repression. Minority groups (such as the Roma and the Gagauz) have demanded justice, and in some cases increased autonomy, while the larger Russian and Romanian speaking communities have found their positions changed in the new social landscape.
       Predictably, such change and upheaval has not been an easy process. After 50 years of Soviet rule, politicians struggled ministering a seemingly alien form of government as did its citizens in figuring out their role within it. This context presents a unique pedagogical challenge for educators seeking to help Moldova's youth understand civics and contemporary challenges. At the same time, foreigners working in Moldova often have difficulty navigating this history. This project provides a strategy to confront both challenges by developing two Moldova-tailored simulation games that will compel its participants to address these contentious points typical to nascent democracies transitioning from authoritarian rule.

    Project objectives:
  • To create a politically-oriented simulation game and facilitate it 24 times for Moldovan youth across the country.
  • To create and incorporate a culturally-oriented simulation game in trainings of newly-arrived Peace Corps Volunteers (PCVs) to speed their adjustment to the cultural context of Moldova.

Led by HIA Senior Fellows (SFs) and staff from Germany, who are experienced simulation facilitators, the simulations will be developed during a 6 day workshop from March 20th – 25th that will bring together historians, civil society leaders, Moldovan university students and PCVs. The conference will also explore historical topics and train participants in simulation facilitation methodologies in addition to designing and testing the Moldovan simulations. Workshop participants will travel throughout Moldova to facilitate and improve the games during the following year.
       With the network and expertise of "MilleniuM" Institute, Peace Corps, and HIA, this project will promote a deeper understanding of history's legacy on democratic processes and civic leadership among its participants, a small but vital step along the path towards full liberal democracy. If you are interested in attending the conference and facilitating a simulations in your community please contact Vitalie Cirhana at cirhana@gmail.com.
       Financial Considerations: during the 6 day workshop and during the facilitation of all 24 simulation games throughout Moldova, transportation costs, lunch, snacks and coffee breaks, and supplies will be fully covered by the funding provided by the Humanity in Action project grant.
       How to apply: please fill out the application form and send the completed application along with your Curriculum Vitae (European Format) to info@millenium.md by March 14, 2012.
       Interviews will be conducted the following week.

  • 6 profesori şi reprezentanţi ai APL;
  • 3 reprezentanti ai societatii civile – membri ai organizatiilor neguvernamentale.

  1. Care sunt problemele cu care se confrumtă tinerii din Cricova?
  2. Cu ce pot tinerii contribui la dezvoltarea comunităţii sale (depăşirea problemelor existente)?
  3. Ce resurse la nivel de comunitate sau din afara comunităţii au tinerii pentru a depăşi problemele cu care se confruntă?

Constatări/Obstacole: În conformitate cu discuţiile din cadrul Forumului, s-a constatat că în activităţile desfăşurate, tinerii din Cricova se confrunta cu multiple obstacole şi sunt nevoiţi, de cele mai multe ori, să depună eforturi considerabile în scopul soluţionării problemelor. Cu toate că unele obstacole sunt specifice anume tinerilor, altele sunt valabile pentru întreaga societate.
      Cele mai mari dificultăţi, de ordin general dar cu impact sporit asupra tinerilor, se reduc la: atenţie insuficientă din partea societăÿii, nivelul de trai al populatiei foarte scăzut, politici de tineret ineficiente, insuficienţa persoanelor calificate în lucrul cu tinerii, oportunităţi reduse pentru angajarea în campul muncii, servicii medicale contra cost oferite tinerilor, corupţia în societate, insuficienţa oportunităţilor de procurare a spaţiilor locative pentru tinerele familii, migrarea şi emigrarea tinerilor, s.a.
      În pofida faptului că tinerii sunt dornici de a dezvolta activităţi economice, şansele lor sunt reduse prin mai multe impedimente: lipsa culturii antreprenoriale, susţinere insuficienta din partea administratiei centrale a tinerilor antreprenori, creditarea ineficienta, salarii necompetitive pentru tinerii specialişti.
      Domeniul politic pare să fie, în primul rînd, unul mai puţin interesant pentru tineri, acesta fiind asociat cu imaginea negativă a vieţii politice în Moldova şi preocuparea insuficientă a partidelor politice pentru atragerea tinerilor în viaţa politică.
      În schimb, se atestă un interes din ce în ce mai mare faţă de organizaţiile societăţii civile. Totuşi există şi unele obstacole, cum ar fi: cultura participării nedezvoltată, finanţare insuficientă şi instabilă a activităţilor, absenţa unor politici viabile pentru tineret, susţinerea insuficientă a organizaţiilor societăţii civile de către stat.
      Soluţii/Recomandări: În cadrul Forumului, participanţii au menţionat necesitatea implicării mai active a tinerilor în dezvoltarea societăţii, necesitatea valorificării la maxim a potenţialului existent şi identificarea de noi oportunităţi pentru a schimba lucrurile în bine. Au fost identificate numeroase soluţii, ce fac referire la cateva domenii mari: necesitatea sporirii eforturilor educative îndreptate, pe de o parte, către formarea unei culturi democratice a participării în rîndul tinerilor, pe de altă parte, către sincronizarea pregătirii profesionale cu cerinţele pieţei de munca actuale; necesitatea informării tinerilor, în special prin implicarea mass-media; necesitatea susţinerii active a structurilor societăţii civile şi încurajarea apariţiei şi răspîndirii unor noi structuri, necesitatea dezvoltării unei infrastructuri pentru tineri şi a elaborării de politici în domeniu.
      Reiesind din constatările dezbaterilor organizate, precum şi din concluziile atelierelor de lucru din cadrul forumului, participanţii Forumului Comunitar al Tinerilor din Cricova recomandă susţinerea urmatoarelor acţiuni:

  • Asigurarea conditiilor optime pentru tinerii cu nevoi speciale;
  • Asigurarea functionalitatii mecanismelor de participare a tinerilor la luarea deciziilor;

"MilleniuM" Training and Development Institute anouncess selection of participants for "4th International Youth Meeting: European Citizen - Where are you?",21-30 October, 2012 - Prague, Czech Republic.
       Following the 1st Youth Meeting (August 2010 in Heilbad Heiligenstadt, Germany), the 2nd Youth Meeting (May 2011 in Belgrade, Serbia) and the 3rd Youth Meeting (September 2011 in Riga, Latvia) the aim of the "4th International Youth Meeting: European Citizen – Where are you?" is to bring together experts from European level, trainers, leaders and youth workers to discuss the meaning of European Citizenship and youth participation, possible ways to break the issues down for the practice in international youth work and to come up with creative and innovative approaches, ideas and support for practitioners in the international youth field.
       We will discuss the terms "Participation" and "European citizenship", give a theoretical background and think about the question how is it in praxis? Establish connection between (youth) participation and core themes which we consider as crucial in European youth work when approaching the challenges of the 21st century as "discrimination, xenophobia & exclusion"; "fight against Youth Unemployment" and "Marketing, PR and the Web 2.0. for Youth NGOs". The program gives the opportunity discuss practical examples as well as prevailing problems; suggest and communicate non-formal methods in order to use them in practice; show and diffuse good examples of European youth work (Quality & Experiences / Recognition of Non-Formal Education and Youth Work); critically discuss and creative thinking about European youth work and new ways of participation, to improve, document and promote youth projects in future (Networking, partnership building & future cooperation); share experiences with youth participation projects and discuss the issue of quality in order to improve it and to evaluate recent developments.
       Europe needs active citizens and participation, because democratic societies are based on them. Therefore citizens must be encouraged and involved in participation for their own good. The idea of European Citizenship is based on the efforts of participation by the citizens themselves. The youth of Europe plays a crucial role in there. They are becoming decision-makers in the future. But before they need to know about themselves and their neighbours in Europe to evaluate, differentiate and solve problems that the future will bring. This project gives them the opportunity to get to know each other and try to listen and understand different point of views. The intercultural challenge that implies in here, 50 participants from EU27 programme countries and neighbouring partner countries from SEE and EECA will contribute in many ways to the individual learning process of each participant.
       Based on our experiences made within the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Youth Meeting the present 4th Youth Meeting will offer a platform where all participants can learn in an atmosphere of mutual understanding something about themselves and something about their neighbours in Europe in general but in particular through exchanging their knowledge, experiences and best practice in the field of international youth work. To reach the aim to create a European awareness during the project therefore the participants will work together with methods of non-formal education about crucial points of youth participation in Europe. Another string that will guideline this project aims the questions what means European active citizenship and how can we support active participation in our home communities? Last but not least is to get connected and finding synergyeffects between us and new projects under the umbrella of YiA Programme of the European Commission.

Proiectul internaţional "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle",
realizat în cadrul Programului Youth in Action
3 March 2013 - SRC lanseaza publicatia Responsible Consumption. What? Why? How?

Societatea pentru Consum Responsabil ne propune sa reflectam asupra obiceiurilor noastre de consum si ne impartaseste cateva idei despre utilizarea eficienta si cu masura a resurselor.
       Echilibrul mediului, echitatea sociala, impactul asupra economiei si a comunitatilor locale sunt elemente care ghideaza un consumator responsabil in alegerile sale.
       32 de tineri din Albania, Georgia, Moldova, Romania, Spania si Turcia au reflectat asupra lucurilor marunte pe care fiecare dintre noi le poate face pentru a duce o viata mai sanatoasa si sustenabila. Timp de 10 zile, pe durata schimbului de tineri de la Gura Humorului (Septembrie 2012), acestia au experimentat alternative eco la obiceiurile zilnice de consum si au descoperit conexiuni intre consumul responsabil si dezvoltarea comunitatilor locale.
       Intorsi acasa cu intentia unui stil de viata mai prietenos cu mediul, participantii, impreuna cu echipa de proiect si-au propus sa transmita mesajul mai departe. Au dat startul la redactarea unui ghid al consumatorului responsabil, care s-a finalizat sub forma brosurii Responsible Consumption. What? Why? How?, pe care o puteti rasfoi la www.reducereuserecycle.ro.
       Materialul incearca sa raspunda la o serie de intrebari, precum: Ce alternative sustenabile de consum avem? Ce inseamna sa fii un consumator responsabil si cum ar putea acest mod de viata sa fie in folosul nostru? Alte teme abordate sunt: consumul local, ecomobilitate, reducere, reutilizare, reciclare, etichete si simboluri eco.
       Acesta este un prim pas in misiunea pe care si-a asumat-o SCR: Dezvoltarea gradului de ntelegere a ceea ce inseamna consumul durabil in rindul comunitatilor locale din Romania si in alte tari europene. Brosura va fi tradusa in scurt timp si in limba romana, organizatorii vor astepta pareri, sugestii de imbuntatire pentru o versiune viitoare.
       Publicatia reprezinta un rezultat al proiectului Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, coordonat de Societatea pentru Consum Responsabil, finantat de Comisia Europeana prin Programul Tineret in Actiune.

Between 22 and 28 of August, 2012 , within the Youth in Action program , took place the Youth Exchange "Back to Nature".
       It involved 4 organizations from several European countries which work in the field of youth and environmental work. 21 participants from Latvia, Ukraine, Italy and Republic of Moldova joined the youth exchange. It was the evening of 21th of august, when we, positive young people from four different countries- Latvia, Ukraine, Italy and Republic of Moldova, met together in Garmaki , Vinnica, Ukraine ,to start a 7 day trip of adventures, green thinking and exchanging cultures. The first way together led us to beautiful wooden cottage in Garmaki. Nice atmospheres, great landscape, smiling people around were like inspiration for attractive, interesting and social communication activating get to know games. These were the first steps to find out names of everyone.
       The second day started with team building oriented activities. They helped us create bonds, exercise our team skills and be more open with the others. There were intellectual, interactive, outdoor and indoor games, which were at the same time entertaining and motivating. Some of the activities were also quite unique, for many people it was the first time trying out some of the challenges. But that wasn't all , the next came intercultural evening, where we presented our countries by tasting traditional foods and drinks, singing traditional songs and learn something new about other cultures. This day was a great beginning of youth exchange, new friendships and making our planet greener.
       Every day one participating organization made a presentation and practical workshops using the method ‘learning by doing' that are the best for presenting games and activities from environmental education. They used the principle of ‘learning from each other' to exchange ideas, experience and best practices from environmental education through workshops prepared by each of the organizations taking part in the youth exchange. During these activities each organization presented its best practices, the most effective methods they use in their work with youth (for example: environmental and educative games, various outdoor activities). The aim was to transmit the most successful and inventive practices to other organizations and to improve and vary the everyday work of the youth NGOs.

  • To apply these competences and tools directly to the specific cases of the represented organisations, and to develop respective long-term strategies and working plans;
  • Assessment of best practices and common pitfalls;
  • To explore how to strengthen impact, visibility, multiplying effects, and exploitation & dissemination of results in Youth in Action projects;
  • To ensure and support action planning for future projects and co-operations with a focus on the promotion and recognition of our value-based youth work and East-West co-operation.

       Why is this Training Course needed?
       It is a common "disease" of many (smaller) NGOs that they do an important and admirable work, but they neither "sell" it nor disseminate or follow?up on the results.
       Also, the strategic management of many NGOs is based on intuitive feelings and presumptions rather than on true knowledge of the environment ("market") and the real needs of their target groups.
       As a consequence, the endeavors pursued lack impact, effectiveness, visibility, appreciation, recognition, follow-up and sustainability.
       In response to this, the 8-day training course "LOUDSPEAKER" targets NGOs working along the lines, values and spirit of the Youth in Action programme and empowers them with relevant competences and practical tools in the area of social and strategic marketing, communication, imagebuilding and PR.
       This leads to an improvement of the impact, effectiveness, visibility, appreciation, recognition, follow-up and sustainability of the work of these NGOs and of their Youth in Action projects, and by such of the Youth in Action programme and the encompassed values in general.
       "LOUDSPEAKER" will provide 24 international youth workers / project managers and their respective partner organizations with a highly impacting opportunity for learning and practice for their further professional, organizational and personal development as managers and leaders in civil society, putting special emphasis on long-term relevance, impact and transferability of the learning outcomes and operative follow-up plans.

       Approach:
       The training course will be based on the specific needs of the participants and their organisations and will be highly participatory.
       Diversity, e.g. in the group of participants, will be considered as a resource for the building-up and transfer of competences.
       There will only be few frontal lectures, the main part of the training course will be delivered in the form of practical sessions implemented by the participants in a learning-by-doing fashion.
       The trainers will take care of creating a supportive and saf learning environment, where participants are encouraged and coached while mastering challenges that contribute to their personal, professional and organisational development.
       Special attention is paid to making the learning points of the training course relevant, sustainable and transferable, eg by giving ample room for reflection and assessment, by producing exhaustive documentation and by providing templates and guidance for tailor?made development and action plans.

Summary of the project:
       In the 21st century, violence is being committed to women in all over the World. Even if women have the same rights with men, women rights are being jauntily overridden and exposed to physical, sexual, mental and economic violence.
       Globally, up to six out of every ten women experience physical and/or sexual violence in their lifetime. Every day in the world, girls and women are killed under the name of "honour" and most countries are a mere spectator. In some countries, girls are circumcised and buried alive. According to many women; rape and domestic violence are more dangerous than cancer, traffic accidents and war. Even this comparison has revealed the gravity of violence against women.
       Women working in different fields cannot build a career for themselves because of stereotyped responsibilities given by societies. Women are being expelled from their rights.

Proiectul internaţional
"EVS GOES EAST - Project & Quality management in EVS",
realizat în cadrul Programului Youth in Action
3-10 Martie 2012 - Training Course "EVS GOES EAST" in Spania

În perioada 3-9 martie 2012, în Caudete, Spania s-a desfăşurat un Traning Course cu genericul "EVS goes East". În cadrul Training Course-ului au participat reprezentanţi din Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Rusia, Irlanda, Cehia, Grecia, Georgia si Moldova.
       Pe parcursul a 5 zile participanţii au luat cunoştinţă cu conceptul European Voluntary Service (EVS) şi cu metodele de realizare a unui proiect de înaltă calitate.
       Primele zile s-au axat pe introducere în sistemul EVS, YouthPass şi Youth in Action Programme. Au urmat ateliere care s-au axat pe etapele unui proiect EVS, modalităţile de evaluare ale acestora şi o seară interculturală, care a servit drept premisă pentru elaborarea de noi contacte pentru ulterioare parteneriate.
       Ultimele două zile s-au axat pe comunicarea interculturală, soluţionarea conflictelor apărute în cadrul desfăşurării unui proiect EVS şi pregătirea terenului pentru elaborarea unor proiecte de parteneriat în domeniul tineret.
       Urmatoarea zi participanţii au fost repartizaţi în funcţie de statutul organizaţiilor din care faceau parte şi au purces la elaborarea unor drafturi de proiecte EVS. Tinerii care reprezentau organizaţii acreditate au tins spre proiecte ce vizează nemijlocit trimitere şi gazduire de voluntari, cei care nu făceau parte din organizaţii acreditate pentru desfăşurarea proiectelor EVS, s-au axat pe acţiuni mai restrînse, cum ar fi cursuri de instruire şi schimburi de tineret.
       Ultima zi a constituit o prezentare succintă a proiectelor elaborate la finele traning-ului şi s-a finisat cu o procedură de evaluare numită "Eu vreau sa spun că…".
       La final, fiecărui participant i s-a oferit posibilitatea de a se autoevalua conform celor 8 competenţe a YouthPass, astfel încît după instruire tinerii să poată primi un certificat YouthPass ce confirmă participarea la instruire şi obţinerea unor competenţe cheie ce ţin de domeniul EVS.
       Scopul proiectului, şi anume cel de a transfera cele mai bune practici a Programului Youth in Action şi experienţe pentru Europa de Est şi ţările învecinate din Caucaz şi construirea de noi parteneriate, s-a realizat, întrucît la finele acestuia s-au iniţiat parteneriate preventive, pentru proiecte ulterioare.
