About the Event


On September 25th 2015, UN members adopted a set of global goals to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all as part of a new sustainable development agenda. They adopted the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) which included 17 goals and each one of them has specific targets to be achieved over the next 15 years.  

"Global education is education that opens people's eyes to the realities of the world, and awakens them to bring about a world of greater justice, equity and human rights for all." (NS Centre, COE).

In the youth work field there is a constant need for creativity, open and diverse methods to engage young people in global issues.Streets have a huge potential in terms of informing, raising awareness, including and building a diverse community. Specific methods designed for street work can be applied and the principles and vision of global education can be included in the process as well. 

Street animation and street campaigningare in their essence innovative approaches in youth work and they are the key methods approached by this project. Not only because they differ from “traditional” workshops and other indoor activities, but also because they are very flexible and adaptable to different situations. 

This project will offer the opportunity for youth workers to explore deeper global topics and agenda and to bring these important dimensions in their work and act towards them by developing competencies in street campaigning. 

The aim of this project is to raise the capacityof youth organizations to develop global citizenship competencies through alternative innovative methodology (more specifically street campaigning).
