Global-In Fellowship 2016
Date du début: 1 janv. 2016, Date de fin: 30 sept. 2016 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

Twelve youth organizations from all regions of Europe, the Middle East and North Africa have come together to foster international cooperation and participation among youth through a common European project, the Global-In Fellowship set to be carried out in August 2016, in Berlin, Germany. The program sets out to achieve following goals: increasing knowledge among participants and partners, contribute to development of skills such as civic engagement, public participation, and public speaking, and to promote innovative solutions to global issues.Formally, the program comprises of 60 participants (5 from each partner). Among these, 4 out of 5 are 16-20 years old, with a final coordinating participant from each aged 18-25 years old. Each 4 members of a delegation are chosen in cooperation with the partners, as well as through open calls. What we hope to achieve is that youth from outside the partners may apply, and thus can also become a part of the partner organization. As such, we hope to further build a network of experienced participants from partner organizations connected to previously less- or disadvantaged youth. The calls will be carried out independently in each country. A general participant’s profile is: highly motivated, knowledgeable but with potential for growth/development, who have overcome or currently face hardships or disadvantages (such as financial, social, geographic or cultural). Key is determination to be or become, an active member of society and an interest in questions pertaining to this. To remove participation barriers, we cover all costs through pursued financial aid from the “Erasmus+” program in addition to local partners.The program spans over 3 weeks divided into 3 different sections. Firstly, a week is spent in interactive workshops with trainers to provide further, out-of-classroom knowledge into topics such as philosophy of law, economic systems, political participation and media. Throughout these, the European union and its neighborhood relations will be a continuous theme, in addition to as a theme-day. An evening program promotes rhetorical skills and community participation through practical activities. The second week comprises of a Model United Nations simulation, where new knowledge and skills come to practical use through a simulation of real negotiations and world issues. Through simulating a Human Rights Council as well as a Security Council the participants are tasked to represent a UN Member State different from their home country, enabling enlargement of argumentation horizons, negotiation skills and understanding of global conflicts. The topics discussed are chosen together with partners and participants, but this year should pertain to European issues, e.g. refugee crises or conflicts at the borders of the EU. A “National Socialism” theme day concludes the week, providing important insights into German and European history. In the third week, an innovative simulation pulls the participants into a world post-natural disaster, post-current political institutions. Here participants will adopt new self-developed personalities and together simulate new self-designed countries, in turn providing a forum for development of solutions to actual problems for political systems, without current realities hindering creativity. The topic choices will be developed together with the leaders, ranging from climate change, legitimization of national and international political structures (e.g. the EU), migration, border security and organizational cooperation (e.g. UN). Once again, topics are influenced by the European region and be relevant for participating countries.The program is developed in cooperation with partner organizations and all participants will be included on equal basis. Experienced participants will coordinate the delegations; together with the group, they will be in charge of further program preparation. Through APV meetings, coordinators and some participants discuss potential adjustments with trainers and implement these. Overarching coordination is the responsibility of the applicant International Projects e.V. and the trainers; who firmly guarantees engagement of all participants and partners in all stages of implementation and follow-up. A participant’s gains from the program spans over am increased knowledge base, skills and competences, to motivation and encouragement to further promote youth projects and to actively engage in civil society and the partner organizations. Participants are especially encouraged to support local participation in intercultural or interregional relations. A partner organization gains from involvement through connections to new members, experiences of innovative training methods and its conclusions, which can be further implemented in other projects. Lastly, the international umbrella organization, of which Global-In Fellowship is a member, works to foster a global network of youth organization and its participants.
