The learning process:

 

The learning process with young people from La Paca was designed for two days. During the first day, a set of getting to know each other and the group building activities were implemented. After that the participants were invited to start exploring the topic of Moving by using the tools “Moving Bingo”, “Where Would You Like to Travel” and “Cat and Mouse” from the guide “Six Steps to Global Citizenship. A Guide for Youth Workers, Youth Leaders and Trainers”.

In the evening, the group organised an intercultural cooking activity. They brought products from different parts of the world and had to reflect where they come from and how they are used in the different cuisines across the globe. After that, the participants split into small groups and cooked the dinner for the rest of the group using the ingredients they brought.

The next day started with the activity “Choosing an Issue”. Among the selected issues, the participants built 5 groups in which they had to create a front page presenting the specific issue related to the topic of Moving. Next, the participants were invited for the activity “Interview”. They went out from the seminar room and had to get the opinions people on the streets of Lorca about the issue they were exploring.

The participants started the afternoon session with the activity “Discovering Your Potential” meant to empower them and give them the additional motivation for action.

The learning process was designed in way that within the workshop the participants got into the step of the action planning. After the workshop, all participants went back to their local communities and implemented their planned actions individually or in small groups. Monitoring and evaluation was implemented through the Facebook group which was used by all participants and facilitators of the learning process.

The actions which were proposed by the participants were:

  1. to help animals on the street;

  2. to talk with the elderly and help them in their daily tasks;

  3. contribute to the maintenance of the villages to be clean;

  4. donate blood.

 

The outcomes:​

Out of the evaluation forms and the observations of the team of facilitators, the main outcomes of the learning process are related to 4 competences from the GlobaLab framework of global citizenship competences:

  • Maintaining relationships;

  • Challenging stereotypes and prejudices;

  • Empathy;

  • Solidarity.

The main points of learning mentioned by the participants in their evaluation forms were:

“Do not judge people from their appearance”

“How to treat people better?”

“To understand better people, respect, what stereotypes I have, etc.”

Most of the participants also mentioned that the themes and topics covered during the learning process are very relevant for young people, and they see the clear link between the issues they discussed and their everyday life.
