About the project
ACT is a training course that aims to support the professional development of young
leaders/trainers and to raise the quality of their projects concerning active citizenship.
We will approach the idea of citizenship on three different levels: locally, nationally
and in the European context. The training course uses methods of experiential
learning as role plays, simulations and drama methods and group sharing methods
as small and large group discussions. Together, we will be working out and improving ‘method toolkit’ on how to motivate youngsters for participation in their community
and beyond. All over mission of the training course is to find the ways how to make
the issue of citizenship attractive to the youth.

Objectives of the project:

immediate environment and society and active participation;

citizenship and its implications for participation;
