ABOUT THE PROJECT

The needs we want to address with this training are:


1. To learn a new technique for the design of creative, collaborative and sustainable projects, which will improve the quality of our projects.
2. To acquire new tools to improve the employability, participation and motivation of the young people with whom we work, especially those at disadvantaged situations.
3. To provide strategic vision to our youth workers and trainers, so that they can contribute to improving our organisations.

The main activity of the project is a Dragon Dreaming training course which duration will be 7 days. Each entity will select participants such as youth workers, trainers and other staff involved in the strategic development, through an open and public process who are interested to attend the course. We want to carry out this project because we think that the Dragon Dreaming method is a very useful and comprehensive tool for individuals and entities, to transform their dreams, into successful, realistic and sustainable projects, with which they can also help or inspire other young people.

October 2019 in Cantabria

Dragon Dreaming method supports managing projects of any kind, focusing on the deep engagement of every member. It offers methods for the realisation of creative, collaborative and sustainable projects and organisations.

The method integrates holistic aspects which have long been ignored, separated or divided in our culture: our right and left brain hemispheres, logic and intuition, individual and environment, theory and practice, thought and action, work and play, success and failure.

TO GOOD TO BE TRUE?

Even we are offering participation in this project “for free” it doesn’t mean it is free. As an organization, we are covering project administration costs and our young volunteers are working hard, investing their energy, knowledge and time to make this opportunity possible. Why? Because we are in love with mobility and striving to open even more international opportunities for young people and youth workers in Croatia and wider who invest time in self-development and make positive changes in their environments.

WOULD YOU LIKE TO SUPPORT OUR SMALL STEPS TO GREAT POSITIVE CHANGES?

One wise man (or more likely woman) once said: “If you don’t ask, you can’t get.” Our projects would be even more productive and beneficial with small financial injections. So, please, feel invited to invest in youth education, future and entrepreneurial spirit. <3
