In our work environments, we know that not everyone is innovation savvy. Not all of us like to try new approaches, and some of us really prefer to stay on safe paths. But in the EAYW, we believe everyone can be an innovator.
Some of us will be the creative person that loves to explore alternatives, and some of us will be the organising force that will transform that new idea into a beautifully planned project. Some of us will work like big antennas always capturing new youth trends, and some will make sure that the team will drive innovation responsibly. When it comes to finding new solutions in times of disruption, every hand is needed on deck.
In this webinar, we will look into those individual competences that do make a difference when teams want to create innovative solutions that are creative but also efficient, sustainable and ethical.
The webinar will start at 9:30 CET with optional 20 min. of well-being activities, led by embodiment trainer Sandra Gojić. From 10.00 – 12.00 CET, the webinar will include short inputs from research and practice and well as moments of exchange among participants allowing you to relate the inputs to your and the other participants’ youth work-related experiences.
We are excited to have Federica Demicheli from the EAYW research team with us, as well as Seamus Quinn, Dramatherapist and Drama Practitioner, who works at the Trinity College Dublin National Institute for Intellectual Disability and also with Adolescent/Adult Mental Health Services.
Seamus Quinn will present the European project I-SAVE, coordinated by Gaiety School of Acting- The National Theatre School of Ireland, on Inclusive Self-Advocacy Education and Empowerment for Young Refugees and Asylum Seekers living in temporary accommodations. The project aims to develop an innovative, youth-led educational and empowerment programme to enhance young refugees’ knowledge of their human rights, allowing them to safeguard their well-being and become independent adults.
