• “Let’s shape our future ourselves” Training Course in Armenia

    From Thursday 24th until Wednesday 30th of April, the Armenian development NGO Syunik organised a Training Course in Hermon village in the Vayots Dzor province in Armenia’s south-east. The training course gathered a little over 20 participants from Armenia, Georgia, Germany, Spain, Switzerland and the Ukraine for a week of intercultural exchange, project management workshops and practical application of different youth activism tools. The course was led by two experienced and enthusiastic Youth in Action trainers from Spain and Armenia.
    Gabriel Füglistaler, current co-president of JUNES, invited to participate by the Swiss National Youth Council (CSAJ/SAJV) was part of a four member Swiss delegation.

    The first day mainly consisted of team-building activities that allowed participants to get to know each other and to make first steps towards successful intercultural collaboration. The following days provided a platform for the exchange of best practises, comparison of youth activism in the different countries as well as discussions about the role and characteristics of youth leaders. The participants have also been equipped with basic tools of project management, self-evaluation and needs analysis.
    One of the highlights was the visit to the village Hermon where participants applied some of these tools and directly interacted with the locals.

    On the cultural side of things, the intercultural evening where participants presented their country and brought typical food, drinks and music was clearly another climax of this eventful week. The excursion to the Novarank monastery on the last day offered the opportunity to see more of beautiful Armenia and its rich history.

    All of the participants left Armenia enriched by the training course, the encounters with people and different cultures and the touching Armenian hospitality. JUNES strongly encourages its members to strengthen their intercultural skills by attending such training courses and our own projects like the ISP’14, or why not … by initiating your own projects!
    You can find more intercultural training courses you can attend yourself for instance on the Youth Salto webpage.
