Co:Create – From self-authorship to active citizenship

Cercle Libre Association for Social Aesthetics (AT) and Academy for Peace and Development (GE) invite 24 youth workers, trainers, educators, volunteers and activists to gather for a training week in beautiful Georgian nature. Together we will work on bridging individual and community wellbeing and active global citizenship. You will experience a week of personal development and social learning, fun and participatory methodologies combined with outdoor activities and explore the power of movement, stillness, rituals and storytelling as tools for community work.

The aims of this training course are:

  • To equip the participants with tools and approaches to increase their wellbeing, self-reflection and self-authorship and thus create a ripple-down effect on their communities and environment
  • To raise awareness of global interconnectedness and personal responsibility towards the global community
  • To promote active citizenship, foster youth participation in democratic life and support civic engagement
  • To contribute to a continuous dialogue about European and universal values, solidarity and equality
  • To explore ideas of self-authorship, sustainable development, non-violent communication and responsible use of resources
  • To motivate participants to take action and encourage others to do so

The training is carefully designed to empower your personal development and leadership capacity, to foster your skills for self-authorship and self-awareness while doing community service and youth emancipation work. It will equip you with tools to become a role model who communicates feelings, values and visions in a clear and non-violent way, and to encourage these skills in individuals and groups. It offers an opportunity to learn and practice to facilitate community building processes, using mindfulness and embodied learning as tools for acting towards systemic transformation towards an open, peaceful and healthy society.
