DYPALL Network is searching for youth leaders and young people with a strong interest in youth participation and democratisation, with experience in peer education and facilitation, to participate in the Study Session “Youth Democracy Academy”.
The activity is organised by DYPALL Network, in cooperation with the Youth Department of the Council of Europe, and will take place from 8th – 14th October 2023 in the European Youth Centre Budapest.
The aim is to equip 30 youth leaders and facilitators with knowledge and skills to implement the “Educate for Democracy” programme. The programme is composed of training modules based on non-formal education methodology appealing to young people so they could explore the concept and values of democracy innovatively, tackling it from local, national, and European perspectives.
Through the study session, we want to develop further young people’s sense of critical thinking and skills for information analysis and fact-checking, to bring young people closer and discuss their approach to existing challenges and threats to democracy Europe is going through and to empower 30 young facilitators committed to revitalising democracy and equip them with the skills to educate other young people to rebuild trust in democracy.
You can find more information in the call for participants.
If you are interested, please complete the form by Tuesday, 18 July 2023 (23h59 CET).
