The era of disinformation, uncertainty in the sources of information, the era of hoaxes. The era in which the loudest voice of shocking information without source, the voice of emotion using our deepest fears often matters more than the quiet, calm voice of facts, statistics, fact checked quotes and logic.

The best way of showing solidarity and help is giving them the right tools and instrument in order to be able to find job in the labour market.  In order to meet some of the needs of this marginalized community, this project conducted a specialized Training Course to promote mobility within and beyond the EU’s borders, non-formal learning and inter-cultural dialogue and encourage the employability and inclusion of young refugees, regardless of their educational, social and cultural background.

This project was designed to raise awareness and promote different ways of protecting environment among 32 youngsters coming from bigger towns – in the Czech Republic, Cyprus, Poland, Slovakia, Romania, Macedonia – with the population more than 20 000 in interactive and modern way. How many youngsters are familiarized with the ecological problems? How many of them knows how to tackle them? Do still have youngsters from bigger towns connection with the nature? Everything begins from the nature. How we are behaving to the nature, it can reflect also behaving to each other. The tolerance, solidarity is missing in nowadays society. In nature, everybody has the same rights. Nature catastrophe does not choose if it will be targeted to the refugees, black, whites, or migrants.

The goal of this project was to gather young people from different countries and to promote commonality and similarities among them for deeper connections. The main aim of this project was to involve young people into process of inter cultural learning on different music, clothes, tradition, culture and food. With this project, we wanted to fill the void between participating countries and learned more about the similarities and the differences between our cultures. This project explored cultural diversity through material heritage such as folk music, songs, traditional clothes and foods.

The project was implemented with the cooperation of the community of the village of Klirou. Volunteers will be asked to support the village in preparing the spaces of activities (cleaning, setting up, organising houses to host visitors). The festival included dance, music and environmental oriented (this year they are promoting their fig production). During the implication of the project, volunteers had the chance to meet with the locals, young and older, get acquainted with their customs, ,Cyprus culture, food and everyday life.

The main aim was to help Europe deal with its migrant crisis through a joint effort of youth organizations across Western Balkans, EU and Turkey. The forecast outcome was to give a chance to experienced professionals to exchange opinions (seminar), equipping trainers in tools and competences (Tot), giving young people from 10 countries a first-hand opportunity to learn about migration and to act in their communities, producing relevant resources (Good practice guide and toolbox), and then to use all of the project outputs to disseminate results by local events (to multiply them) and to raise awareness of migration issues in whatever aspect relevant in the 10 consortium countries (for some of them it will be freedom of movement, for others learning about migrant/refugee distinction, for others fighting discrimination or preventing trafficking), thus mainstreaming migration issues in youth work and wider society.

Life Connection introduced a whole universe of active citizenship and democratic participation. we sought to develop basic and transversal skills, such as entrepreneurship, digital competences and multilingualism, through an innovative learner-centered pedological approach and certification method. Life Connection explored rural, social issues from a green economy standpoint and tried to come up with alternative and sustainable solutions and opportunities for employment and engagement in civil society. The long-term aim was to promote a new model of society, in which the environment is conceived and experienced as part of the community universe, and not as an external element that needs to be dominated. During the exchange, the participants were encouraged to explore, highlight and compare the best practices and alternative models existing within their realities, looking beyond purely economic values.

Many organisations in the third sector are failing when it comes the time to promote or disseminate their activities. Very low budgets, voluntary work and, specially, lack of technical skills make that the contents they produce very often doesn’t make the impact it was hoped. Launching a campaign is easy, but creating an efficient, effective and professional campaign with high quality contents requires knowledge, skills and hard work. In one hand, we have this amateur social campaign and in the other exists a lot of examples of viral contents that spread a hate message along the continent. Videos, articles, memes… teaching intolerance against everyone who’s different. Unfortunately, a lot of this contents reach successfully a youth public transmitting them homophobic, xenophobic or sexist ideas. That’s why we wanted to create a “guerrilla” of skilled and motivated youth leaders able to spread efficiently their positive messages and thus fight intolerance. We created “nohate.mp4” as a learning opportunity for 24 youth workers and leaders to improve their communication skills for the benefit of their social projects.

The youth exchange “Manaakitanga” took place from 4-12 September 2016 in Jakartovice, Czech Republic. Our team, Sfera Macedonia, like one of the partner organizations helped in facilitating and organizing the exchange. In this project, like participants understood why migrations exist and that is not a new situation that we can be afraid of. Throughout the workshops we shared, discussed and built different opinions on the transition and welcoming of migrants.

SFERA Macedonia team participated in Training Course “Think Globally, Act Locally” which focused on active participation of young people in democratic and social life. It also included terms such as the value of citizens’ participation in civil society organizations and social movements, student participation in the governance of schools and universities, as well as democratic participation in the family. Unfortunately, young people’s interest in taking responsibility in society has significantly decreased and this poses a lot of threats to democratic life not only in national level but also in the wider world and European level. Society across the world needs influential youth leaders equipped with skills and good knowledge who will raise awareness on the importance of active participation. Today’s young people volunteer more than old people; they are much better educated; and they are less likely to drink excessively or use drugs than previous generations of youth but that does not seem like a recipe for this political and social apathy around the world.

During this TC, participants learned that community events can help reduce individual and family isolation, can make the place where we are living more attractive and empower social connections. One of the productive contribution was supporting community via organizing local events or implementing permanent projects. The effort of organizing events built a stronger community, this local factor contributed to the increasing culture life, made a better neighbourly relationship, raised awareness and attractiveness of the countryside. We wanted to create the space where people can share their ideas of improving life in their rural areas by organizing the local events or permanent projects helping the rural development, the TC Happy Community.

The idea for the project came from the project leader, who faced a physical disorder and has since joined the Slovenian national sitting volleyball team. She thought that youth with special needs did not have the opportunity to be engaged in local sport activities. Therefore, aimed at addressing these issues that many may be facing in different communities. Main objectives of the project were to spread the awareness about EU topics, how to involve different young people, also disadvantaged, in activities. Moreover, the project supported healthy lifestyle and wellbeing for youth by using sport and how to adapt the activities for them.

The new 2015 has begun with profound political imbalances and radical socio-economic transformations in both EU and Mediterranean countries, as the result of difficult democratic transitions, humanitarian emergencies, dramatic increases in cross border migratory flows and the tensions which derive from complex processes of socio-cultural integration, current economic crisis oppressing mainly young people in all EU countries. The ongoing social transformation processes in both EU and Mediterranean partner countries, required an increased capacity of individuals and communities to cooperate and built more just and equitable social structures in a world where interdependence is growing.

The second part of the project continued in Florina Greece from 29.08.2016 until 04.09.2016.

Trying to understand the media and its role in society is a bit like trying to capture fog in a box. The media are everywhere and are completely intertwined with our society, our politics, and our lives. Separating out the media from our own belief systems, attitudes, and perceptions is very difficult. One enduring truth about media, though, is that the greatest power of media is its ability to be anywhere in the world and beyond. As we all have become part of truly global society, we rely on the media to provide us the most vital form of currency in the world today: information. Are you “media literate”? What does it even mean? Can We believe everything in the news? They wouldn’t lie in the news, right? What is Hoax? Don’t know? Maybe you shared one. And what about propaganda? There is no such thing anymore, right? Are you interested in the questions above? Do you want to find out more? Or do you want to share your opinion?

The Underdog Project” was based on street based work experience from our organization and foreign partners. It was implemented according to the needs of youth workers who involved excluded youngsters into local societies.
During the meeting, the participants gained a number of new skills and knowledge, but also learned all the specific details among working with quadrupeds, learned how to implement “in practice” (meetings with experts, visits to the animal shelter and section of “Polish Water Security Guards”).

SFERA Macedonia team participated and led some sessions during this project in Turkey. The main aim of the project was to know how to react in violent situations, knowing their rights and how to handle problems. Through flash mobs, meeting with the local citizens, deeply conversation, workshops, we increased awareness to get the meaning of the violent especially domestic violent.

A key objective of this project and of Erasmus + programme was to motivate and involve Roma young people in entrepreneurship. Education determines future life chances, and is crucial for finding stable and decently paid employment. Non-formal learning played a very important role in equipping Roma young people with the necessary skills for the competitive labour market. It enabled them to become entrepreneurial thinkers by immersing them in real-life learning ventures where they could take risks, managed the results, and learned from the outcomes. Entrepreneurial skills helped Roma youth adapt well to other non-entrepreneurial careers and improve their lives and communities.

We strongly believe that young people through their capacity to initiative, exploration, creativity and innovation can develop something better, suitable for previous and future generation in cities they live, in order to safe and create new modern heritage for future generations. We had chance to work with each other, during several international projects, where we realized, that we had same vision, passions and desires toward improving life of young people and their involvement in developing our cities.

This exchange taught participants how to actively improve their health and general lifestyle by teaching them the lore of using wild plants i.e. various herbs along with being physically active in the outdoors.

Not Just Numbers is an international youth capacity-building project aimed at strengthening co-operation and developing capacity of youth organisations in dealing with migration and asylum issues in the EU and Western Balkans. The project was built on a broad needs analysis conducted by members of the project consortium in their communities and responds directly to needs and problems of their target groups – young people, notably those with fewer opportunities. The project was a way to deepen and extend local activities in the fields of migration and asylum awareness conducted by consortium members in their countries. The main problems the project responded to were: low awareness of migration regulations in the EU and South-East Europe, prejudice and discrimination against migrants and asylum seekers and negative portrayal of migrants in the EU and Western Balkan countries. The project created synergies between the fields of youth work, formal education and training, through co-operation with formal educational institutions in campaigning on migration and asylum matters. Specific objectives of the project were: to facilitate exchange of expertise on approaches to migration and asylum education in youth work, to train youth workers in using education tools developed by IOM and UNHCR (starting with the ‘Not Just Numbers’ Toolkit), to develop a youth campaign raising awareness of migration and asylum issues, to promote further trans-national learning mobility and networking between youth organisations in the EU and Western Balkans. The project programme included mobility activities (training of trainers and youth exchange) and capacity-building activities (large-scale youth event and an awareness-raising campaign). The project’s main impact was the development of capacity of partner organisations in addressing migration and asylum issues in youth work, increased skills of youth workers, raising awareness of migration and asylum rights, causes, consequences and impact among 8 young people in the EU and Western Balkans, and increased co-operation of youth organisations in the EU and WB on migration and asylum matters. The project’s outputs included a good practice guide and awareness campaign and disseminated at two levels: locally by consortium members and Europe-wide by the project communications team. Dissemination measures were local events involving young people, youth workers and other relevant stakeholders, in co-operation with local traditional media, as well as online dissemination tools including social media and websites, and offline dissemination of printed materials.

“From Green to Greener” was a youth exchange under the frame of Erasmus+, Key Action 1 – youth mobility. The project was a wake-up alarm for the unhealthy lifestyles (junk food, sedentary, consumerism) and unsustainable tendency, meant to provide green tools for dealing with environmental issues, such as pollution, garbage, waste. 25 participants from 5 European countries gathered in Bitola (Dihovo, Macedonia), focused on non-formal education in the context of environmental education with a combination of different activities and methods. Young persons with the age between 16 and 30 were involved in group activities, opening discussions and creative workshops, including outdoor activities and visits, in order to gain knowledge and abilities in sharing or expressing their views, experiences and opinions related to the project’s theme, and also to connect with nature and its resources for a greener future. Activities were done in a pleasant and interactive atmosphere, where at some points hammers or garbage were working materials. Debates, role games and teamwork were combined through practical sessions like gardening, Recycling, bird house building and others.

Project “Conundrum of Exclusion – Training Course on preventing radicalization of young people”, organised by Serbian NGO Centar za razvojnu politiku i saradnju, were implemented in two stages (Training Courses)

First TC will be from 30/03/2016 – 06/04/2016 and

Second one from 05/06/2016 – 12/06/2016

The main aim of this project was to address one of the most pressing concerns of European societies – the problem of youth radicalization. Young people, often affected by unemployment and other negative consequences of the economic crisis, were becoming increasingly susceptible to radicalization (both online and as a result of peer pressure). On the other hand, the rise of radical terrorists and religious extremists leads to increased social tensions between different groups within societies, with representatives of minorities often wrongly blamed and stygmatised by the representatives of majorities. These problems are visible not only in Western Europe (Belgium, France, the UK) but also in the Balkans (Serbia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Macedonia). All of this is taking place within the context of increased introversion among public. People seem to be interested only in their own affairs, separating themselves from others with “walls of indifference”. In our project, we wanted to address these challenges by deconstructing the existing problems, promoting educational solutions and fostering strategic cooperation between youth organizations and public authorities. Through two eight-day training courses hosted in Serbia, we planned to train 64 participants (32 per course) in how to tackle the problem of youth radicalization

After the shocking terroristic attack of religious origin at the “Charlie Hebdo”‘s newspaper and the ongoing immigration flows, Europe got involved in a reflection about its inclusion and integration policies and about its relationship with a community are based on a religious belief and that legitimate with religion its violent actions. The project “God with us? Religious Identities and Youth Participation” wanted to forward an analysis and a reflection about the role of religion in the contemporary society. The young participants discussed the original motivation of their social engagement and their active participation in the society, reflected on the founding values of the European Community today. The project focused on these themes: religious identity, interreligious and intercultural dialogue, relationship between religion and laically reason, responsible participation, active citizenship, conflict management, social inclusion. The partnership for this project included 8 social organizations from Italy, France, Hungary, Macedonia, Ukraine, Romania and Georgia.

The idea of this conference was to help strengthen the role of civil society in combating and preventing crime, to promote cooperation between public institutions and civil society organizations, as well as to stimulate the processes of active democratic participation. The conferences part of the “Waves of legality, waves of citizenship”, was funded by the program “Europe for Citizens” part from the European Commission. The project aimed to help and strengthen the role of civil society in combating and preventing crime, to promote cooperation between public institutions and civil society organizations as well as to stimulate the processes of active democratic participation.

The aim of the “Words Shape Identity” project (KA1, Mobility of Youth Workers) was to raise awareness about an inclusive LGBT terminology and its wider implementation in practical youth work. The aim was achieved using diverse methods of non-formal education, primarily creative writing. 22 youth workers from 11 different countries (Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Greece, Macedonia, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain and Turkey) met for a 7-day training course in Ljubljana, Slovenia. They discussed different situations in LGBT communities and inclusive LGBT terminology in a safe and creative environment, where everyone was motivated to express themselves, their role in local, regional, national and European context in creating safe spaces for LGBT youth with inclusive language. The added value of the project was a web page with blogs from the participants in which they shared their knowledge and experience gained during the training course and share it with other youth workers. The latter encouraged others to contribute their own blogs for the mentioned web page, therefore spreading the knowledge and experience even after the project’s completion.

SFERA Macedonia hosted EVS Volunteer from Sumy, Ukraine for 3 months in Bitola. Ukraine was part of Soviet Union and its double language country so the volunteer showed interest to make Russian Course lessons two times in week per 1 Hour. The interest was big especially from the students in high schools because learning more languages is a cultural treasure. The students were satisfied because they learned something new outside English because in Macedonia Russian courses can only be learned in University. Afterwards the volunteer has made a photography exhibition in the Home of Culture in Bitola with photograph’s taken in specific places in Bitola.

  • Training course “Beyond the form” to success” addressed the present need throughout whole Europe for competent young leaders and facilitators in civil society who are able to run educational activities for youth based on the values of the European Union and the Council of Europe, through usage of non-formal approach that has proven utmost flexibility beyond the borders of social classes, gender, nationalities and mentalities. TC sought to enable participants to explore and actually understand the concept and factors behind non-formal learning, and thus to competently design, facilitate and debrief existing and novel non-formal learning sessions and opportunities. Furthermore, in order to ensure sustainability, this TC wanted to provide the participants with a coached and structured opportunity to elaborate a professional and personal development plan based on competencies and values

The Project was about Addiction. One of the worst problems for the youth is Addiction. There are different types of addictions in the world and each of them is growing day by day with worse results. For example, drug addiction, alcohol addiction, internet addiction etc. We can find out more and more addiction types. In our project, we wanted to raise awareness in society towards addiction and prove that the youth will play an important role to solve that problem. First of all, we wanted to find out the reasons of addiction and to find the ways to get rid of addiction. Besides, we were working on the roles of the society members to solve the problem.  We organized workshops, lectures, group-works, pair-works and social activities to find solutions to stop and prevent addiction.
