Shape Your Landscape

DEADLINE: 24-03-2019


The Training Course will take place in Jurmala, Latvia from 21 to 27 May 2019.

The aim of course is to empower youth workers and other educators to use place-based education approach in their work and to support them in developing competences that will help them reimagine how different places can be used as learning spaces and resources.

The training course has been designed for youth workers, non-formal learning facilitators and teachers who are interested in place-based learning approach and are willing to learn new and creative methods for their work.

Throughout the course learners will take part in various place-based exercises thus giving them chance not only to gain knowledge about place-based learning but also to experience diverse and creative practical methods how to use it.

The training will also connect the ETS Competence Model for Youth Workers with the placed-based educational approach to foster an active reflection about our way of learning and teaching.

Place-based education and learning approaches can provide answers as to how can we ground our sense of belonging through connecting with our surroundings and environment. It empowers us to be practical, brave, realistic and aspirational and acts as the keystone in the bridge that connects our experiences with the real life.
