ESU is proud to announce a call for participants of a series of activities within ‘Shape of Resilience – Take a step forward – Training for becoming an Activist ‘ supported by The Council of Europe
Are you passionate about social inclusion and civic engagement and wish to learn more about this in a series of workshops and training activities? We’re looking to bring together a diverse, intercultural group of young people to join us to ‘Shape of Resilience – Take a step forward – Training for becoming an Activist’, a series of workshops that aims to welcome anyone and everyone who wishes to increase its knowledge on youth participation and resilient recovery from Covid-19 and are willing to bring it back to their organisation – high levels of expertise on the topics are NOT required, our training workshops will be conscious of the diverse abilities of our participants!
The activities are being organised by the European Students Union (ESU) supported by the Youth Department of the Council of Europe and are dedicated to representatives or active students from national students unions or representatives of youth organisations with a focus on very different topics (inclusion, civic engagement, activism, etc..) and who are interested in becoming ‘trainers’.
