ABOUT THE PROJECT

This international training is a part of the Erasmus+ project “Entrepreneurial resources for youth”. It has been designed to comply with one of the goals of the project, to offer Dragon Dreaming training to youth workers and young people in our communities.

The main objective of this course is to transmit the Dragon Dreaming Methodology to youth workers and young people of our strategic partnership.

A 10-day training in Spain will bring together 2 participants from each entity, to learn and experiment with a participative and creative technique of project design and entrepreneurship called “Dragon Dreaming”. The training will link each theoretical lesson to practical exercises in teams in order to define together the key areas necessary to start writing a sustainable project and how to involve and motivate participants throughout the duration of the project.

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
