EUtopia? Diversity in a Changing Europe is a creative, analytical and critical learning experiment which will bring new life to old concepts. It is for the very experienced among us, who sometimes feel tired of thinking, and the very fresh ones, who sometimes feel lost and don't know where to even begin. If you are ready to dive deep in the meaning of diversity and use what you find to reshape the practices of youth work – then EUtopia is for you!
The learning process lasts for eight months. It will result in improved practices for supporting young people in changing Europe, and it will produce tools and approaches that will be shared in an online library for youth workers. It is comprised of four elements:
1st part: Home Lab for Introduction – online learning process consisting of 24 hours of individual work from March to May
2nd part: Lab for Critical Analysis – challenging and exploring concepts in Latvia, from 6th to 12th of May 2019
3rd part: Piloting Lab for Creativity and Experimentation – testing it all through local activities implemented by participants in their local communities
4th part: Designing Lab – creating new tools and approaches in Montenegro, from 8th to 13th of October 2019
The call is open to all youth field professionals. The selected participants are requested to take part in all parts of the Lab.
