The training «It’s our common challenge! Anti-discrimination work across the formal and non-formal sector» was held in the picturesque mountain place of Armenia.

Lusia Bondarenko, representing NGO Kyiv Educational center «TolerSpace» participated in the LEARNING MOBILITY PROJECT, supported by Erasmus+ the European Union’s program.

The project «It’s our common challenge! Anti-discrimination work across the formal and non-formal sector» took place from 19.02.2016 to 28.02. in Haghpat, Alaverdi, Armenia.

The training courses promoted the initiative and creativity of participants and have a direct impact on their future youth work or youth policy activities, such as organising quality projects and providing intercultural and non-formal learning experiences for young people.

The practical and theoretical tools and experience, gained in this seminar for sure will be useful for our tutors in the further activities in the field of non-formal education working with youth.

Altogether, 28 people from Armenia, Belarus, Denmark, Georgia, Germany, Portugal, Romania, Russian Federation, Slovak Republic, and Ukraine took part in the project.

It was a really great opportunity to meet interesting people from different corners of the world in one place, to practice your language skills, to share professional experience, to find something in common. The program passed very quickly and after returning home, I have already a great inspiration to enrich our non-formal educational activities.

Main contents and activities of the project: during the course the participants have experienced in the learning-by-doing process activities including (elements of): - non-violent communication, - anti-bias approach, - forum theatre, - (educational) comic, - betzavta - open space technology.

The project’s trainers were: Julia Suchar, Oliver Wiechmann and Boris Romanov.

So, I am very grateful for the time spent usefully and our good team.
