The “Inclusion Mixer” project is a Training Course for youth workers aiming at increasing competences in the pedagogical development of activities dealing with Social Inclusion Education by using non formal education methodology. Theme of the project is consistent with the important European issue – social inclusion. In the training time we will have possibility to discover what is inclusion and what is social inclusion, the involvement of social inclusion principles, their origin and how they are respected and protected by the European countries. An important part of the program will be devoted to the analysis of social inclusion, respect and protection in different European countries. The participants and the team will be invited to share their experiences, not only with knowledge but also with the necessary materials and skills used in dealing with the development of the principle of social inclusion in their educational activity and daily work with young people.
Program will start with getting know each other, ice-breaking. After we’ll have introduction in social inclusion and each country will present situation about inclusion in their own countries. Participants will have presentation about existing handbook on inclusion ALL TOGETHER, and also have space to try some of those methods in practice. Work will be mainly in small groups and we will try to organize it in educational, but funny ways. Also prepare for some simulation activities. In practical part we are going to organize activities for people with disabilities in Český Krumlov. Also we have experts who are working with disable people every day and introduce participants with Universal design principles. There will be 2 days of outdoor activities, despite weather conditions. You can try in practice everything you learned before. Outdoor could be quite challenging, so prepare good and be ready for surprises!
