  • Can Do Cards

    Dear readers, 

    We are glad to present you the Can Do Cards, a KA2 Erasmus Plus funded project. 

    By the CanDo CARDs project we wish to empower educators in the social field to become ‘CHANGE AGENTS‘.

    To do so, we believe that educators in the social field need to be empowered with effective tools to become the drivers for positive change. Change Agents will be equipped with tools that empower disadvantaged people with creative and innovative skills and competences which reinforce their resilience and increase their European awareness and civic engagement. These tools refer to creative methods and approaches for learning democracy, intercultural competences, improvisation theatre and debate education. The impact of creativity and non-formal education is of great importance in shaping inclusive societies and empowering change agents. Creative and emotional skills allow people to find new inventive resilience strategies, better cope with crisis situations and societal challenges as well as raise their critical thinking and active citizenship. It also allows people to act more effectively both individually and in a group, it encourages cohesion and the attainment of common goals without losing respect for one-another.

    Thanks to each partner’s expertise, our learning setting will combine both cognitive and affective learning experiences by linking forms of non-formal, informal and formal education.

  • Meet Eva!

    Hi! My name is Eva, I work as social educator in Progestión in Valladolid, Spain, and I love my job.

    Mainly I teach Spanish and also I´m in charge of an awareness project on interculturality and migration.

    I consider diversity as something enriching and I´m lucky to work every day with people of different nationalities and cultures.

    Interculturality is a topic that interests me a lot, and I´m excited to learn innovative methods and approaches that I can apply in my work.

  • Meet Irene!

    Hey! I’m Irene, from Spain. I work as a project manager in Asociación Progestión. My career has been focused in social intervention with different groups of people, including migrants, refugees and women victims of gender violence. In the last years, I’m more focus in the management of European projects, which is fantastic to meet people from all around Europe and get to know many places. In my free time, I love to go to the mountains, where I go hiking, climbing and even mountaineering if there is enough snow!

    I’m happy to be part of a project like CanDoCards, that promotes inclusion and integration of people through the exchange of experiences, mobilities and non-formal education methods.

  • Coordinators meeting in Istanbul – Turkey (second TPM)

    Dear readers,

    We are happy to share with you concerning the second coordination meeting of our project CanDoCards, which took place in Istanbul, hosted by Young Life (Genç Hayat).

    This meeting was an opportunity for partners from Turkey, Sweden, Germany and Spain to gather and share about the work done so far and to prepare the next phases of the project, especially the LTTA 2, which will take place in Turkey in Spring on the topic of Intercultural learning through innovative methods and approaches.

    The city of Istanbul gave a warm welcome to its visitors with a sunny weather, for the joy of its inhabitants.

  • Day 4 from our learning process in Spain

    Bellen started the day with a kind of “dancing like” warm up and after that we discuss the continuation of the IO1 for a while.

    Then we all had the opportunity to make some reflections on the presentations we have had during the LTTA. Each team had a discussion on how can this method/material help me as a change agent and how can I use it or change it to be useful for me, in my context?

    Some interviews were filmed to be part of the IO and of course we had a evaluation.

    I think we all were a bit sad to leave this beautiful place that Progestion found for us (THANK YOU PROGESTION!).  And thank you the German team and Katrin for organizing the LTTA! And thank you partners for some creative and dynamic  days together!

    And as always, saying goodbye is sad.

    Have a safe trip back home … and auf wiedersehen, nos vemus, görüşürüz, vidimo se, vi ses!

  • Our third day from our LTTA in Spain

    The third day began with an energizer that led us ınto the work agenda. Firstly, the Swedish participants had their coordinator do a presentation on deliberation and how it works in their educational environment. The conclusion of the presentation told us that the art of being human entails, among other things, having a sense of what constitutes viable freedom and what constitutes irreversible dependency. To be able to be ourselves while yet being present with others. Afterward, the Croatian coordinator delivered a speech on the negative aspects of democracy. Tvrtko introduced us to the model of “lasagna” technique in which layering of activities and discussions result in productive group dynamics.

    After the lunch break, Turkish coordinators had the floor to themselves. Yelda held a discussion on children’s labor with a video following her topic. The topic was followed by a group work that was focused on finding a solution to tackling children’s labor throughout three phases. The results were both inspiring and raising awareness of the importance to react to this problem. Yelda was followed by Emircan’s presentation on hate speech and his work on the same subject in the media. The group managed to understand the definition of hate speech and was asked to name the ways of recognizing it. This session was the final one before the Carthusian walk. Strolling through nature in pairs, participants had to discuss their personal meaning of Europe. The day was wrapped up with the dinner and the farewell party.
