GALA (Global Actors in Local Actions) is a project that aims to develop global education methods at youth centres and in turn support youth workers and organisations implement this thinking into aspects of their work with young people. It is suitable for youth workers aged 21 or over.
This training course aims to support organizations in their activities within global education, offer participants new tools for their everyday work and offer a space for exchange of ideas and project proposals. There are participants attending from Poland, Italy, Austria, Turkey, UK, Slovakia, Spain and Finland. This is a fantastic opportunity to meet people from different countries, share best practice, and develop ideas for future links and projects.
The training course is being held at the beautiful Villa Elba youth centre, a global education development centre situated in a forest on the west coast of Finland near the small town of Kokkola. At this time of the year the area is covered in snow and there may also be opportunities to view the Northern Lights from the centre.
