When busy people have a cup of tea, they stop and think for a moment. Our leaders are no different. So what would you like them to think about while they drink their tea? Groups of young people or children from different countries imagine a short message on an issue that they think is important. They decide who they want to hear their message. Then they buy some tea, and design the most original and creative box or packet for it. They put their message inside the special packet, and find an interesting way to deliver the message to the leader they have chosen. All they are asking is that the leader should spend 5 minutes having a nice cup of tea and thinking about something which young people say is important. Finally, they tell the story of what they did, using film, photos, blogs or other creative media.
This long term project will bring together youth workers, teachers and volunteers from 18 different countries including the UK for three linked activities:
1. A training course about how to set up and organise a Time for Tea activity at the local or national level. You will first practice the activity together with other participants, and then make a detailed action plan for organising Time for Tea in your own country. You will also be trained on how to use video to report your activities.
2. When you return home, you will have up to 6 months to organise your own Time for Tea project with a group of children or young people. You will produce a film of your activities. All the films will be uploaded and shared on the Time for Tea website.
3. Finally, you will return to London (10-14 April 2018) to share your experience with all the other participants, and to present your project results at a public dissemination event in central London, for a VIP audience of key stakeholders and sponsors.
Activity 1 of the project is divided into two groups: A: 19-25 August 2017
B: 21-27 October 2017
In order to simplify communication and administration, there is a single application process for both groups.
