We face the reality young people today consume a lot of time on the computer, TV and video games, there are warning statistics and analysis. These activities limit a lot their learning experiences.
This does not mean we should limit to one hundred percent access to these diversions, but we have to generate alternatives that are educational and enriching.
Indoor games/activities provide an activation of the five senses: sight, hearing, smell, taste and touch. The urban environment and daily routines keep us from varied and exciting sensory experiences for the development of our sensibilities providing and supporting attention, overview, comfort and relaxation.
The training is aimed at improving competences of trainers, facilitators and team leaders on participatory education through playing games and activities and to motivate young people at local and at international level to get involve as active society members within the concept of participation and citizenship.
The training course is based on a non-formal and a trainee centred approach putting the needs and abilities of the participants into the centre of the training.
The trainers will learn plenty of activities, games, workshops, that they can develop with young people and how to motivate them to participate in the daily life in their communities as a citizen. A broad range of educational means will be applied ranging role plays, workshops and short interactive exercises and trainee-led sessions.
