The Green European Foundation with the support of the Cooperation and Development Network Eastern Europe is announcing a call for Participants for the International Training “Cities for all – How ?”.
About the Event
The training will take place between the 25th and 31st of July in Serbia. Participants will arrive on the 24th of July and depart on the 1st of August.
· To develop the participants’ skills to design creative and efficient campaigns that reach the wider public;
· Exploring new tools and strategies for lobbying the demands of women and young LGBT+ individuals to different stakeholders;
· Equipping participants with appropriate skills to work with local communities and organising outreach activities at a local level. Encourage young people’s active mobilisation around the topic of Cities for all.
The programme will be based on the principles of non-formal education and intercultural learning. We strive for an active and inclusive environment for direct communication and sharing of knowledge. The sessions will be balanced between theoretical inputs, work in small groups, workshops, discussions, training, and other interactive methods of non-formal learning.
Who should apply?
We are looking for participants up to 30 y/o from Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bosnia, and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Georgia, Greece, Kosovo*, Latvia, Lithuania, Hungary, Moldova, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Poland, Romania, Russia, Slovenia, Slovakia, Serbia, Turkey and Ukraine interested in looking for different urban approaches and questioning the existing urban planning status quo that neglects inclusivity, human rights, and needs of the city dwellers, would like to contribute to the discussions with their local perspective and are willing to reproduce the gained knowledge on the local level.
Language: This activity will take place in English. However, not being comfortable interacting in English should not prevent you from applying. CDN strives to create an inclusive atmosphere at the events, where participants are encouraged to express themselves and ask for clarifications or translations of terms from peers that speak the same language.
Costs: The cost of travel (80% or 90%), PCR tests, visa, lodging (accommodation in multi-bed rooms, vegan food, and refreshments), and working materials during the event will be covered by the organisers. In exchange, we ask for a participation fee of 20 EUR from participants coming from non-EU countries and 50 EUR from participants coming from EU countries. Applicants for whom paying this fee is an obstacle for participation, should still apply and mention this in their application (no selection criteria). CDN will try to find a solution together with the applicant after the selection is finalised.
CDN will reimburse 90% of the travel costs for the participants from the non-EU countries and 80% of travel costs for the participants coming from the EU countries, within reasonable limits and within Europe, with the condition of combining the most economic and environmentally friendly means of travel (lowest price + travel time + CO2 emissions).
