Adventures in Global Education Erasmus+ Training Course
13-20 October 2021 | Kilfinane, Ireland
This project is a 6 day training course aiming to develop youth worker competencies and skills in using outdoor learning approaches to global education and critical thinking. THE CONCEPT of using outdoors and adventure education was developed in response to the need for delivering global education competencies for youth workers in new and ever more interactive ways. Providing outdoor education methods and tools for youth and community workers as an approach to educating about environment, equality and poverty emphasizes the importance of understanding natural and environmental systems as both a direct, active learning experience. Interacting, and knowing how to interact with nature and the outdoors is a declining skillset. However it is an important one which not only provides personal and societal health benefits but also contributes to cognitive development, values and principles.
This Training Course is
for 24 participants
from Greece, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Portugal, United Kingdom
and recommended for
Youth workers, Trainers, Youth leaders, Youth project managers, Volunteering mentors, Youth coaches
