Osallisuus nyt! Participation now!

Our International training seminar “Osallisuus nyt! Participation now! – Respecting Diversity, Discovering Equality, Celebrating Participation” will take place from 23rd till 30th of May 2018 in Turku, Finland.

Within this theme we will look at the need for rethinking concepts for participation in the present political and economic climate and how the current youth work practice and conditions in local communities offer genuine participation in diversity for the empowerment of young people.

This activity is hosted by two Finnish e.p.a network partners from Turku; Turun ensi- ja turvakoti ry and Globaalinuoret ry.

The activity will search for ways to support youth and community initiatives in disadvantaged communities in their efforts to respect and include the participation needs of young people from different backgrounds by creating equal access, opportunities and welcoming climate.

This one-week seminar is a mix of theoretical, interactive and practical sessions, working with methods of playful non-formal learning and always in a spirit of intercultural learning and mutual understanding, stressing the contributions of young participants from 20 countries.

This project is funded by the European Youth Foundation of the Council of Europe.
