To give youth workers & youth leaders tools, frameworks and space to create and practice educational games that address current social topics.
Games have a positive effect on transforming relations in groups of youngsters, can resolve conflicts, teach about numerous topics and inspire youngsters to take up initiative. However, daily work with youngsters can make the “toolbox” of youth workers/youth leaders empty, making it difficult to come up with entertaining and meaningful methods.
Through G4L, we want to give a chance for participants to learn how to create new thought-through games on current “hot” topics (migration, inter-cultural understanding, inter-religious dialogue) for their work and benefit of other youth workers.
“Games 4 Learning” will be an international Erasmus+ training course organized by Shokking Group Norge and Youth Association Droni. The main activity of the project will take place in Rustavi (Georgia) during the period 10-17 January, 2018, including 23 participants and four team members from 8 different countries (Georgia, Denmark, Estonia, Spain, Belarus, Armenia, Norway and Ukraine).
The methods used will be those of non-formal education, including creative workshops, debates and active inter-cultural learning processes that will encourage young people to become active citizens and to share their gained understanding and knowledge with others.
