ACT – Active Citizens of Today!
ACT is a training course that aims to support the professional development of young leaders/trainers and to raise the quality of their projects concerning active citizenship.
During the training course, we will approach the idea of citizenship on three different levels: locally, nationally and in the European context. The training course uses methods of experiential learning as role plays, simulations and drama methods and group sharing methods as small and large group discussions. Together, we will be working out and improving ‘method toolkit’ on how to motivate youngsters for participation in their community and beyond. All over mission of the training course is to find the ways how to make the issue of citizenship attractive to the youth.
