"The Art of Facilitation II" is a training of trainers organised by Platform Spartak and the Academy for Peace and Development (APD) from the 17th until the 25th of October 2016 in Misaktsieli, Georgia. The training will gather 30 youth workers and members of partner organisations already active in the field of non-formal education and conflict transformation.
“The Art of Facilitation II” will provide a double learning dimension. First, understanding the elements of conflict, its dimensions and the complexities, as well as the challenges (misunderstandings, false debates, tensions, escalation of conflicts) that could arise due to the particularities of the setting and that endanger the outcomes of the activity. Second, providing participants with tools to work in these settings, through understanding the logic's of non-formal learning, the importance of group dynamics, the different leadership competences and approaches.
In this sense, the activity aims to contribute to the objectives of the Erasmus+ KA1, by improving the overall quality in the implementation of international projects, offering innovation and improved capacities to operate with youth and, contributing to the long-term objective of the KA1, to have a systemic impact on the systems of training and youth in the participating countries.
