Day of 30.03.2017

Luckily the sun welcomed us without wind today, so our trainers took the opportunity to take the activities outside. We talked about creating visions of tomorrow for social transformation and how to connect individual dreams with collective ones. According to that we got a creative task to design a newspaper cover with our personal visions of the future. The results can be seen in the photo collage aside.

In the second part of our training we concentrated on youth empowerment and the use of the R.M.S.O.S. method (see photo) which showed us what are the requirements for successful youth empowerment. We presented in groups small theatre performance about those. Again the trainers gave us the chance to use our creativity for understanding the differences and connections between the requirements. We had a lot of fun in interpreting the meaning of the scenes. At the end of the day we could share our best practices of youth empowerment in our regions/ countries/ organisations. This was the highlight of the day, because of realising the differences of volunteer systems and organisations, we gained new perspectives and inspirations. All in all it was a really great and informative day which we close with an usual day refelection.

We just begun the 1st residential training course here in Georgia, which is the first time we all meet face-to-face after having already cooperated during the online course in the past 4 weeks.

After an informal welcoming yesterday evening, today we will mainly focus on getting to know each other better and setting the frame for this course.
