Youth workers update and enhance their media skills!

Date: 3.-10. March 2018 


Venue: Hamburg (in the educational centre “Dock Europe”, within 10 min walk from the e.p.a. office) 


What is it about?

The idea for this training course came from the good experience of the e.p.a. partner group “Eco-estilistas” to use radio and other media, as tools for youth work, encouraging young people’s participation, involving the neighbourhood and community.

This Training Course gives space to “up date” your own media skills, share ideas and good practice with others and learn especially about audio techniques/radio, as a tool of youth work. Our focus will be on ideas, how to practically implement the new knowledge in local and international youth work and how to encourage young people to become active, using their voice. 

The week will be full of intercultural learning, playful workshops, project visits and practical sessions. 



The participants, all youth workers and/or qualified volunteers -  work face to face with young people – with an interest to work with media tools. The participants come from 16 different European countries, one per each country.
