Show Synopsis    
Title 8th Africa Europe Training Course for Youth Leaders 
Description The 8th Africa-Europe Training Course is one of the activities being held in the 4th African University on Youth and Development.

During the course participants will develop competences and tools to strengthen their political participation in the context of the Africa-EU Strategic Partnership and with regard to poverty eradication and social cohesion on the Euro-African context, developing also competences for the capacity-building of their organisations as civil society actors in the development process.

Furthermore, the course and the African University are unique moments of practical and political follow up and implementation of some of the outcomes of the Africa-Europe Youth Summits and the Africa-Europe Youth Leaders Meeting that took place in Ethiopia in April 2011. The course will also provide an excellent space for strategic networking and finding partners; this dimension will be most strongly encouraged by the team of trainers as well as
for intercultural dialogue and intercultural learning.

The week-long course will gather close to 30 participants. It is designed using a process of mutual learning, being the participants' experiences the starting point of the training process. Active participation and in-depth reflection are key features of the course. Participants will compare their approaches to youth work and youth participation, engaging in the implementation and evaluation of the programme with the team of trainers.
