Amplify Youth VoicesNon-formal and popular education, facilitation and training for social change
Module 1 is a crash course in ‘non-formal’ and ‘popular’ education, facilitation, and training. Together, we will explore different tools and methods to bring people together in all types of settings, from workshops, to presentations, online meetings, and training events.
In this Module:
- You will learn about non formal and popular education principles and methods, utilising these to design your own workshop
- You will reflect on why facilitation is important, and how to facilitate anti-oppressive, inclusive and safer spaces
- You will explore practical tips, tricks and tools which will help you build engaging and participatory spaces
This MOOC was created to conclude the Amplify project, a two-year transatlantic project (from 2019 – 2021) co-funded by the European Union that sought to amplify youth and connect voices in the search for sustainable solutions to gender inequality, climate change and violent extremism. Over 130 youth (between 18-30) from 12 cities (and two regional digital spaces) across Canada and Europe were directly involved, as well as a number of youth organizations, networks and associations. Their goal? To build sustainable alliances and innovate for social change.
AND THIS MODULE COULD BE JUST AN APPETIZER...
Module 1 has been designed as a pilot, and we will potentially design another 5 modules to launch in 2021, depending on your feedback!
