An amazing “YEU Developing YOU” took place in Ganja, Azerbaijan
Between the 5th and 11th of April YEU International and Bridge to the Future (BF) implemented an annual event called “YEU Developing YOU” in Ganja, Azerbaijan, gathering international participants from across Europe.
During this week, two parallel Training Courses “Mainstreaming Gender Issues in organising youth exchanges and training courses on International Level – Road to gender equality” and “Facilitators for future - Facilitating Transformation in Multicultural Societies” took place leaded by the team of international trainers and supported by BF and YEU staff members.
Both events gathered 50 participants from around 21 countries creating “an amazing” learning and networking space for the leaders coming from YEU Member and Partner Organisations. The purpose of the event was to develop competences of youth leaders to mainstream gender matters in youth activities and increase the understanding and usage of nonformal education when working with diverse and vulnerable groups of young people.
The projects were supported and financed by the European Youth Foundation and the City of Ganja. During the event, BF celebrated its 12th birthday and Ganja officially announced its nomination for European Capital of Youth 2015.
Big thank you goes to the staff and volunteers of Bridge to Future for a great hosting during the event!
