Youth workers against extremism and xenophobia
“Youth workers against extremism and xenophobia” TC implemented in Vienna, Austria. The training course involved youth workers from Austria, Belgium, Greece, Italy, Spain, and the Netherlands. The project aims to empower youth workers and youth leaders with skills, knowledge, and attitudes to develop a capacity for fighting extremism and xenophobia.
The participants explored the issues of extremism, intolerance and how to tackle them. The Training Course supports youth workers to learn about the ways of living together in intercultural society.
The trainers used the Non formal education methods. The youth workers also contributed to the sessions. They shared about the reality in their countries.
The youth workers also contributed to the project with their input. Together they prepared recommendations for NGO-s, Youngsters and the oppressed. The recommendations will be spread in their countries. This will contribute to the spreading of Tolerance and understanding in Europe. The participants also developed several international projects. The topics of the projects are diverse. They will support the general objectives of Erasmus+ Programme.
The project is financed by Erasmus + Programme and Austrian National Agency (Jugend in Aktion 2014-2020).
