Project description: “ICL it” Training Course focused in a double learning dimension. First, the Training wanted to provide space to understand the basic elements of culture, its dimensions and the complexity of intercultural environments, as well as the challenges (misunderstandings, false debates, tensions, conflicts) that could arise due to the particularities of the setting and that are usually endangering the whole Activity outcomes. Second, to provide participants with tools to work in these settings, by understanding group dynamics, leadership skills and other specificities of international youth work.
The aim of the Training Course was to increase youngsters’ understanding of culture and their capacities to lead multicultural activities with educational programs. More precisely, the objectives of the Training Course were:
- To promote international youth meetings as an effective tool for youth empowerment;
- To strengthen the competences of youth leaders in international work and work in multicultural settings;
- To prepare youth leaders for educational tasks in international youth encounters;
- To plan common international youth encounters for young people with fewer opportunities.
