“Do you lead camp activities for young people or work otherwise among youth groups? Would you like to gain new ideas on discussing about inequality, discrimination and racism with young people – especially in face to face group activities but also online? Would you like to share experiences on advancing equality?”
Maailmanvaihto – ICYE Finland, together with its co-operation organisations Allianssi Youth Exchanges and the Finnish Branch of Service Civil International, organizes on the 19th of May at 4 – 7 p.m. an online workshop “Together towards equality in youth camp activities!” to introduce the handbooks published in the STAR E project. The workshop will concentrate on the handbook “Standing Together Against Racism: A Training Handbook!”.
The event will take place in Discord (https://discord.com), an online platform for communities with voice and video chat features. The exercises of the workshop offer ways to explore prejudices and the development of human rights together with young people. The exercises have been further developed to fit into online use from the exercises of the training handbook.
The workshop was originally designed as a face to face meeting to be held on the Day Against Racism in March, but it has been transferred into an online workshop due to the coronavirus situation. The workshop meant for those you who work among young people or study youth field. It is free of charge and it will be held in English. In the event the principles for a safer space of Maailmanvaihto will be followed: https://maailmanvaihto.fi/turvallisemman-tilan-periaatteet (in Finnish).
Currently the organizers are finalizing the plans and looking forward to meeting all the enrolled participants and learning together in the workshop. The organizers co-operate in Finland as Kansainvälisen Vapaaehtoistyön Verkosto (network of international volunteering), which aims at advancing quality and responsible international volunteering.
