Profile of participants: Youth workers, Youth leaders, Youth project managers, Volunteering mentors, Individuals, Civil society groups, Environment and Development Education Organisations
Themes and goals of the event: Aim of the international seminar: to demystify the concept of solidarity and create a common understanding
Expected results: This seminar will explore what is meant by solidarity, what undermines it in its various forms, and what facilitates it. Through the engagement of experts in the field, it will also explore the operation of solidarity in practice.
The seminar will make connection between the meaning of ‘solidarity’ with the new European Solidarity Corps Programme.
These events provide support and guidance to organisations that want to provide volunteering opportunities, traineeships and employment placements for young people involved in the European Solidarity Corps. We will be scheduling these to start in 2019. Check back here for listings.
These are training activities that support volunteers and trainees. They include on-arrival and midway training for in-place volunteers, trainees and employees. We will also organise training events for returned volunteers. Listings of these events will be published here when available.
