Training Course


About the project:

During the training course, participants will develop methods and campaigns on different social media platforms and also will develop proposals. This may result in impacting the local level by applying these methods in their own organizations or communities. Since the topic of the course also includes communication, then we will create awareness and initiatives that would create an even bigger community of participation. This will lead to the fact that not only participants of the course are aware of the concept, but it spreads to a very wide group of people all around Europe.



  • Understanding participation as a core value for inclusion in Europe, and its implication is a responsibility as youth workers and leaders;
  • Through experience and practice understand how social media functions and its potential as a tool for activists;
  • Explore movements that made history and imagine how they would have looked if social media existed;
  • Tools for critical thinking of web-based information, understanding of hate/smear campaigns when used for young people;
  • Reflect on their own reality, transfer and action planning of messages to involve young people to act.


The project contributes to: 

  • To empower participants into smart and efficient use of social media, thus reflected in future initiatives that they will create, causes that they will support, as well as future and ongoing projects and campaigns.
  • To provide competencies to effectively structure and deliver public communication, to those young people who are not active in the youth CSO sector.
  • To demonstrate that there is a choice, there is another voice, and ultimately that there is an opportunity to join the local youth NGOs.
