The project ”Renew Seminar – Evaluation and Networking” aims at support of active citizenship of former volunteers on local, European and global level through creation of proper place for representatives of six European organizations (from Poland, Latvia, Czech Republic, Slovenia, Hungary, France) to assess the quality and impact of their global education actions and to develop new ideas and partnerships in this field. The participants of the project are volunteers who have experience of staying in the global South and organization of educational and informational activities on global interdependencies.
Between 28 March and 1 April 2012 they will meet in Jedlnia near Radom in Poland, to evaluate their activities, gain skills and inspiration for the next activities and to establish contacts, which will result in projects at European level. All of these aims will be achieved by using non-formal education methods, like simulations, Open Space, discussions in small groups and presentations. The project is an evaluation meeting that will enlarge particular competences of the volunteers, especially entrepreneurship resulting in the creation of a list of good practice and mistakes to be avoided in carrying out projects in the field of global education. Furthermore, the summary of new ideas for cooperation in this field will be prepared and the first stages of planning will be completed.
The long-term outcome of the project will be enhancing the quality of GLEN Network which prepares European youth for global citizenship and to organize citizens’ activities based on this experience in their environment and at the international level.
Project is financed by Youth in Action Programme.
