Out of civilization?


The international training course "Out of Civilisation?" is organized for NGO-activists from Germany, Poland, Russia and Ukraine and deals with different aspects of sustainability. To discuss and try out methods in the field of sustainable consumption is one of the main goals of the project. The social and ecological association "Medewege" in Schwerin is therefore the perfect meeting place and offers many possibilities to deal with topics like consumerism, intergenerational fairness, life-styles, globalisation, recycling/ upcycling, nutrition and resource planning.
The training is organised as a barcamp and consists of different workshops, panels and discussions, which will be prepared by the participants themselves. Possible workshops are upcycling, making bread, cooking at the fire, human library, bees keeping... Small units connected to theoretical approaches in the field of sustainable development will complete the program. At the same time there will be enough space for intercultural meetings and the exchange of professional experiences in the field of NGO-work.
At the beginning of the project the group will discuss and fix various challenges such as one week without meat or cell phone and will reflect and exchange their experiences. During a trip and a public performance the young activists will step into "civilisation" and interact with the public.

You can take part in the project, if you are a NGO-activist from Germany, Poland, Russia or Ukraine and in the age of 18-30. You should be also interested in sustainable development and speak English at a level of B1/B2. The project-language will be English.
