Noored Ühiskonna Heaks (NYH) is promoting a call for participants for a Training Course called Active Citizens of Todaywhich will take place in 2nd until 10th May 2013 in Kobuleti, Georgia.

The term European citizenship has recently become a buzz word. Everyone speaks about it, but no one really knows what does it mean and people keep asking: Is it just about politics? Is European citizenship a V.I.P. club? Where does it start and end? How can put it to our projects? How can we make it concrete and practical?

ACT is a training course, which was developed as a module for youth workers/trainers to help them to answer their questions concerning the (European) citizenship issues. We will approach the idea of citizenship on three different levels: locally, nationally and in the European context. We will work on cases, examples and Europe in practice. Together, we will be working on improving the methods on how to motivate youngsters for participation in their community and beyond.

This event will bring together 24 participants from Estonia, Georgia, Poland, Finland, Lithuania, Ukraine, Azerbaijan and Macedonia. The event will be held in English. There are 3 vacancies available and participants should have minimum 18 years old.

The Youth in Action programme will cover 100% of the accommodation, food and activities and will reimburse the participants with 70% of the travel costs. There will be a participation fee of 40 Eur. per participant.

All the interested people should fill the application form below. The application form must be sent to marco@nyh.ee

Application deadline: 3rd April 2013
