GEYC is selecting 3 Romanian participants, to take part in "Time to Act" European project that will take place in Hamburg-Bad Oldesloe, Germany from 22 to 30 September 2015. The main aim of the training course is to support the professional development of young trainers and to raise the quality of their projects concerning (European) citizenship. Deadline: 12 July 2015

About the project:
The term European citizenship has recently become a buzz word. Everyone speaks about it,
but no one really knows what does it mean and people keep asking: Is it just about politics? Is European citizenship a V.I.P. club? Where does it start and end? How can put it to our 
projects? How can we make it concrete and practical?
Time to Act is a training course, which was developed as a module for youth workers/trainers to help them to answer their questions concerning the (European) citizenship issues. We will approach the idea of citizenship on three different levels: locally, nationally and in the European context. We will work on case, exaples and europe in practice. Together, we will be working on improving the methods on how to motivate youngsters for participation in their community and beyond.

Particular objectives: pointing out the connection between citizenship, responsibility for one‘s immediate environment and society and active participation, experiencing, discussing and sharing historical and recent understandings of citizenship and its implications for participation, approaching different levels of citizenship (local – national – international/European), sharing different visions and understandings of citizenship, reflecting on the notion of European identity and its underlying values (democracy, tolerance, plurality, human rights), experiencing European citizenship in praxis by simulations, cases and method development.

Available places:
-4 participants with no age limit

Selection criteria:
-youth workers, youth leaders, activists

-minimum 18 years old
