Младинска размена Peacemakers Global Week 2020 @ Online event
Sep 14 – Oct 11 all-day

Latest update:

Organizers decided to create an online Global Week for this year, with an online course that will embed most of the presentations planned in the initial schedule. We will use an e-learning platform which soon will be tested, together with webinars held by various speakers. The National Agency in Norway approved an extended period of 24 months for this project. Therefore, the new timetable is the following:

May: YGlobal is testing the platform and creating the curriculum

June- August: collaboration with our partners for creating the content, gathering materials and finding speakers for the webinars

14th September (Monday) – 11th of October (Sunday): 1 month of course to be completed
11th of October – 15th of December: the participants will have to conduct projects in their local communities, as a final assignment of the course, using knowledge from the presentations and webinars

February – March 2021 – follow up period with focus on the feedback of the project

 

UPDATE!

Places are filled! However, it is still possible to apply – all who does, automatically will be put on a waiting list. If somebody cancels in the meantime, the next one from that list fills the place!

 

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!

Play the Way! Training in Czech republic @ Czech Republic
Nov 17 2020 – Nov 23 2021 all-day

Play the Way is a two-phased program composed of a Training Course and a Youth Exchange. The Training Course that focuses on implementing the concept of gamification in youth work, in the frame of the Play the way! Youth Exchange. It is designed for people working with youth in various contexts and it uses the environment of the local organization as a creative base for combining game elements with tasks. Our intention is to create a safe and supportive non-formal learning environment, where our participants can experience and experiment with various gamification-tools and receive a brief but impactful input in the position of the facilitator, mentor, and coach, during the TC and also during the Youth Exchange.  

The project consists of two phases:

A1: Training course about gamification for 3 youth workers/partner organization17-23 November 2020 (without travel days)

A2: Youth Exchange about employability for 4 youth + 1 group leader (who took part in the TC) – 14-22 March 2021 (without travel days)
