Detailed Programme of Activities for 2020
The year 2020 will be dedicated to implementing the first stage of the Strategic Approach set by the MV International network for the biennium 2020-2021. The programme will have a local and transnational character, comprised of online Social Campaigning efforts spanning the 45 member countries of MVI (37 in Europe plus 8 associate countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America).
Activities foreseen are:

Activities – Priority Access to rights:

  • Seminar for youth workers: a transnational seminar focused on providing required knowledge and instrument about Human Rights Education to Youth Workers who are members of Network organisations. During the seminar Youth Workers will cooperate in order to create the programmes for the Training for potential junior youth workers and the one to be proposed to local schools.
  • Training for potential junior youth workers: a local training for potential junior youth workers. An open call will be launched by the organisations in order to reach the individualised target of youngsters. The training will focus on the following macro areas: a) Human Rights and Children Rights b) Youth Working and its potential/core values c) Non Formal Education and its applicability d) Practical session: co-creation of the programme for the local activities with youngsters.
  • Local activities with youngsters: local programme involving youth belonging to the community in which partner organisations operate. As abovementioned the educational programme will be co-created during the Training Course. This because the junior youth workers can provide direct perspective on youngsters educational needs with a consequent and more effective peer-to-peer process to be carried out. 
  • Social campaign: MV International will launch a Social Campaign with the contents produced by the involved youth (e.g creation of Social Campaign logo, designed Social Media posts (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram), videos, pictures). MV International will stimulate the participation from organisations external to the Network, within and outside the CoE area (participation of NGOs and youth groups in the Social Campaign will be sought across the geographic regions represented in MV International [Europe, Africa, Asia and Latin America]). A set of Guidelines will be drafted for MV International member organisations on the contents to be released from their Social Media pages (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) as well as Websites. The posts (text) will be released in both national language and English. 

Activities – Priority Youth participation and Youth work

  • Training for Trainers (Webinar): The Virtual Training will be leaded by 2 international Senior Trainers from MVI and span 4 full working days. During the Training, participating potential Trainers will acquire specific knowledge regarding Non Formal Education methodology and its tools. Senior Trainers will gather the specific educational needs and topics of intervention of the participants in order to frame a targeted webinar. During the third day, supported by the Seniors, potential Trainers will develop a learning programme to be delivered in a set of local activities that will be implemented with an audience of young people.
  • Internal Training: Trained Trainers will implement an internal training with their colleagues in order to share what they learnt during the Webinar. Planning of the internal training(s) will be left in charge of each partner organisation.
  • Social Media Coverage: each member of the Network will promote in its Social Media pages (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) as well as Websites posts regarding the Virtual Training and the internal training(s). The posts (text) will be released in both national language and English.

Activities – Priority Inclusive and peaceful societies

  • Transnationals co-creation group sessions of Trainers: Virtual sessions of co-creation among Trainers focused on creating specific educational programmes focused on the issues and related rights of specific social groups (e.g. Roma youth and other minority groups, young refugees; young people with disabilities, LGBTQI young people and young women and girls) targeted at young people. Trainers will implement a preparatory activity gathering all the existent publications and materials (e.g. Guides, Manuals, Toolkits) to be use as a base for the programmes. Furthermore, during the sessions new NFE tools will be created and integrated in the programmes, which will be tested, in their finalised version, during local pilotings.
  • Local activities with youngsters: A set of local activities, based on the programmes developed during the co-creation sessions. Participants of these activities will be young people belonging to the abovementioned target groups as well as those who do not belong to them, in order to stimulate the peer-to-peer contact within a “comfortable place” with a consequent sharing of perspective and emotional opening from both parts.
    NB. The programme focused on youth migrants’ issues is aimed at fostering intercultural dialogue/learning between them and the autochthonous youth.
  • Social campaign: MV International will launch a Social Campaign with the contents produced by the involved youth (e.g creation of Social Campaign logo, designed Social Media posts (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram), videos, pictures). MV International will stimulate the participation from organisations external to the Network, within and outside the CoE area (participation of NGOs and youth groups in the Social Campaign will be sought across the geographic regions represented in MV International [Europe, Africa, Asia and Latin America]). A set of Guidelines will be drafted for MV International member organisations on the contents to be released from their Social Media pages (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) as well as Websites. The posts (text) will be released in both national language and English.
