The North-South Centre of the Council of Europe has opened a call for participants for the 5th training course on Structured Participation in Democratic Processes, which will take place within the framework of the 6th Mediterranean University on Youth and Global Citizenship (MedUni) in Tunis, Tunisia, from the 7 to the 12 May 2018.
The training course is part of the North-South’s Centre Euro-Mediterranean Youth Cooperation project and seeks to reinforce the competences of targeted youth organisations – through their representatives – in the field of democratic citizenship and participation in public life.
In this new edition, the course will be divided in two modules:
Capacity building: a series of training sessions based on the non-formal education approach and peer-to-peer education. Case studies and thematic group discussion that will stimulate in-depth participatory reflections as well as group working and experiential learning activities to strengthen competencies in the field of democratic citizenship and participation.
Seminar: a structured dialogue with other quadrilogue representatives (from governments, parliaments and local and regional authorities) responsible for youth policy/cooperation in Europe and the Southern Mediterranean countries to enhance Euro-Mediterranean cooperation mechanisms involving a wider range of youth stakeholders.
The course will gather 15 representatives of youth organisations/platforms.
