PEACEMAKERS GLOBAL WEEK – YOUTH, PEACE AND SECURITY

Are you interested in global issues and want to learn more about what you can do to work for more just world? Do you want to meet young people from around the world and discuss important issues such as peace, poverty and injustice together with them? Then Global Week is for you!

Global Week is YWCA-YMCA Global’s summer leadership training course!

Every summer around 50 young people gather in Norway for a week of discussions, learning, action and exciting meetings.  With participants from 11 countries, Global Week is really a place to get a feeling of how small the world is.  When young people from different parts of the world come together and get to know each other, we get a better understanding of how the world works and how, together, we can work for justice and peace.  If you are between 18-30 you can participate in Global Week.

The theme for Global Week 2019 is Youth, Peace and Security.  Maybe you think that its only political leaders who can change the word? Or that only staff in a big organization can run campaigns.  That’s of course not true.  It might sound like a cliché, but it starts with you.  At Global Week 2019 we will talk about what we can do to make the world a better place, both for those around us and for young people in other countries.  We’ll learn how to develop a campaign, how to get young people involved and how we can use music or social media to work for a more just world.

The week culminates with a campaign day where participants can use their newly learned skills in achieving the best results. Being part of Global Week is important because we live in a world with huge challenges, which we as young people can overcome. Video from the last years exchange can be seen here.

For the Macedonians are available 4 placements. Applicants will be given possibility to attend based on the principle ‘first come first served’ until the places are filled, with the priority given to the ones having been part of our GLOW&YMLP camps and clubs. For this reason, a CV will be asked from the applicants showing interest on our mail. For further applicants, a waiting list will be created and if someone cancels in the meantime, the next on the list will fill the emptied position, for which it will be notified. Always check your mail to see if you are that person!

Apply by sending mail on: evs@ymcabitola.org.mk

Participation fee/travel costs: Waiting for info!
Sending costs: 30 eur.

GLOW & YMLP clubs Impact Summit @ NOVA School (high school building)
Dec 21 @ 10:00 – 17:00
GLOW & YMLP clubs Impact Summit @ NOVA School (high school building)

The GLOW & YMLP Impact Summit is a national event in which GLOW and YMLP clubs leaders come together and share their positive practices in working on service projects back in their own communities, inspire each other and learn new skills they can become agents of change  to make a greater impact back home.

The goal of the event is to bring staff and campers alumni from the GLOW (Girls Leading Our World) and YMLP (Young Men Leadership Project) camps together to highlight the service the campers and staff completed in their home communities both in their local GLOW or YMLP clubs and alone.

The event is also a great way to bring the staff and campers from GLOW and YMLP together to talk and share about what everyone has been doing since camp in the summer. The invitation is extended to all camp alumni from GLOW and YMLP 2018 as well as club leaders and active members who have completed a service project in the fall semester.

At this years event will attend 90 participants from across the country!

We can’t wait to see all of the campers from our 2018 camps and talk about the impact we have made in our communities since our amazing weeks together over the summer. Of course, we will be having some fun too.

The Impact Summit in 2018 is supported by:
Grant from European Endowment for Democracy

and the overall program in 2018 has been supported by grant from Foundation Open Society Macedonia and sponsorships and donations from our corporate partners:
OKTA as gold sponsor, SASA mine and Tinex as silver sponsors,

Full explanation of the criteria for application and the learning modules you can find here.

 

 

What is specific about this training academy is that it asks for longer commitment throughout the year. There are three sessions happening in the year 2020, with three different dates and in three different places in Europe:

I session: 24-29 March 2020, Malta
II session: 16-21 June 2020, Slovakia
III session: 3-8 November 2020, Belgium

Applying participant will need to go through all of them.

The second specific thing is that a certain amount of participation will be asked. Currently, we are in a process of finding subsidies for participants coming from places with less opportunities, but it is not clear how much of it will cover the real expenses.

All who are willing to commit for the next year on the provided dates and are able to pay a certain participation amount, please write us on: evs@ymcabitola.org.mk to talk more on the details!
