Eurogames inspiring youth in Rome

01/04/2011

Under the project “Eurogaming2010: NFE in Action – increasing inclusiveness in youth work and volunteering” the first training course was held in March Rome, Italy. 22 young people from Portugal, Spain, Belgium, Cyprus, UK and Italy attended the course, including youth with disadvantaged background. 

 

The main objectives of this training were to empower present and future youth workers to work on the topic of social inclusion and obtain background and knowledge to use and multiply Eurogames booklet. Furthermore, to learn, experience and understand non-formal education as a tool for social inclusion, especially for young people with fewer opportunities and youth with disabilities.  

 

During the days in Rome topics related to intercultural learning, stereotypes, social inclusion, non- formal education, active participation and citizenship were discussed as well as space for participants to learn how to use the games from Eurogames booklet. According to opinion of several participants, the trainers were very active and creative in the methods used, providing different moments for discussions, debates, simulations and theoretical support, encouraged the group proposing challenges and allowing each participant the opportunity to conduct a Eurogames dynamic. The group was remarkable in its ability to communicate. There were three deaf participants, who always had an interpreter during sessions and special attention from both participants and trainers, created a special feeling among the group and helped to develop the dynamic and training. 

 

Just do it – have an impact!

During the training course the participants were offered a space to develop an activity with the local community. The group was very proactive and motivated to organize an Act it out session in the Villa Pamphili Park to engage locals into different activities and promote inclusion through Eurogames. Each participant was carrying a label with different messages that they wished to stress and draw attention to. To attract visitors to the park, the group split into two teams: one to promote the activity and other organize the actions. Through "free hugs” and several flash mobs, the first team, invited people to join the dynamic team. These dynamics aimed to draw attention of the locals to issues related to disability and social inclusion. 

 

New partnerships and motivation!

At the end of the training, the trainers created an open space for all the participants to develop further actions on local and international level as a follow-up to the current training. The participants created two project proposals about which we hopefully hear more soon. 

In general, the training course fully met participants’ expectations and inspired them in many ways. We believe that a huge role in this was played by the participants with disadvantaged background who enriched the group through sharing experience and point of views as well as to get a new perspective on life.
