The project

The training “Renewing our Roots” is for young people who care a lot about the environment and want to make a difference. It’s for those who work with young people, teach, or are involved in activism.

If you’re eager to learn how to help others understand and take action on these issues, this is for you.

During the course, participants must switch off their mobile devices to minimise distractions and maximise learning.

The emphasis is also on creating deeper human connections, practicing mindfulness, and being present at the moment.

While exceptions can be made for important matters, participants should leave their electronic devices in a box throughout the training.

The methodology of the project 

The training incorporates the Work That Reconnects (WTR), a group methodology developed by Joanna Macy, to activate emotional, psychological, and spiritual resources necessary for rediscovering connections with oneself, others, and the Earth.

The program aims to create a safe and supportive space for participants to explore their inner and outer reality.

The trainers, Carlos Buj and Daniela Tablado, have experience in facilitating workshops related to nature, permaculture, and environmental activism.

They will provide guidance and support throughout the training.

The target group

This project is particularly directed to youth workers, trainers, youth leaders, youth project managers, youth researchers and activists.

Participant should have open-mindedness, interest in the topic and a good knowledge of English.

The costs
