Creativity and Social Entrepreneurship for All: A creativity and innovation course for youth workers from 7 European and non-European countriesFebruary 6, 2022
From 10-17 January Sfera International participated in the Seminar KA1 mobility for youth workers in Barcelona, Spain. The aim of the seminar was to promote advocacy among youth workers. Advocacy is a valid way to improve society and support those in need, including youth. Through advocating, young people can create social awareness about some of the most urgent global challenges. This seminar taught about understanding advocacy as part of our role as youth NGOs. Encouraging and supporting young people to take leadership as advocates. Focusing on knowledge, skills, and attitudes which are necessary to advocate successfully and collect valid tools and activities to develop and recognize advocating as competence.
These objectives were reached by sharing inspiring stories, practices, and experiences, about advocacy actions done by promoter organizations at local, regional, national, European, and international levels.
During the activity, we used non-formal and intercultural learning methods, such as workshops, games, role-plays, debates, group exercises to encourage participants to develop competencies as advocates during the activity.
