30 August – 6 September 2017 | Allinge, Bornholm, Denmark
The activity will take place on the summer island Bornholm from the 30th August-6th of September and will be a semi-outdoor training course involving 24 (2 per country) motivated youth workers from UK, Spain, Estonia, Malta, Czech Republic, Romania, Cyprus, Slovakia, Latvia, France and Belgium. The participants will meet on the sunny Island Bornholm and supported by the team of trainers a space will be created for personal development in connection with nature through reflection on our concerns and passions as well as becoming more conscious of our personal learning process. We believe that gaining a deeper understanding of who we are and what we can do for others is an empowering process which can lead to positive changes for the future of society. Moreover it is necessary that youth workers know how they can support young people in facing their own challenges and thereby continue to grow as a person. After the training, participants are expected to adopt a multiplier role: they will lead young people in their home organisations and communities through a personal learning journey to craft and find powerful and meaningful responses to the challenges of the 21st century.
The profile of the participants are youth workers from NGO´s and public bodies who are involved in environmental learning and working with all kinds of youngsters.

Moreover, you as a participant should be willing to go on an intensive journey where you explore diversity and discover variated views on this topic.
