Resumo: In the framework of this training course we want to bring together 24 teachers from 10 countries who work with youth in non-formal settings in order for them to develop their competences on using games as a powerful non-formal learning tool that develops concrete competences among youth and promote social changes in the community.

School is the place where the young people/children spend most of their time during the week. It is no longer only a place for formal learning, but a lot of learning is happening also in non formal settings – in class lessons, project weeks, extra curricula activities, workshops, free-time spaces, school council, etc. Especially in country-side, where youth work opportunities are not so developed, teachers often fill the gap and provide many opportunities for young people to develop themselves in non-formal settings.

Although many teachers might not be aware about it, by working with young people outside official formal curricula and providing non-formal activities, they are actually de facto becoming youth work practitioners.

With this training we want to emphasize that games don’t have to be just fun and entertaining way of spending the time. With the intention behind, the adequate structure and good skills of facilitation, games can also be used as an effective non-formal learning (NFL) tool that promotes personal development and positive changes in the society (f.e., develop greater understanding and appreciation of diversity and promote inclusion in society).

Objectivos: 1. Exploring the concept of games as a powerful NFL tool for personal development and for promoting positive social changes in community and motivating teachers to use games more actively in their non-formal work with youngsters
2. Becoming more aware about existing resources/games for learning and gaining ideas on how to apply them in own context (based on needs of youngsters)
3. Deepening awareness and training the skills of designing and implementing NFL activities including games that generate high quality learning outcomes.
4. Transferring the learning outcomes of the training to young people and youth work colleagues by implementing at least 2 follow-up activities related to games as a learning tool.

Alojamento: The main activities will take place in HOTEL “JAN” located at the bank of picturesque lake, surrounded by and woods and very near to the town centre. Nice atmosphere, friendly surrounding and beauty of nature – everything in one place…

Meals will be provided in the same place.
