From 25th to 31st October 2020 we organize a training “Education for social change” in Werftpfuhl (in the suburbs of Berlin) to provide knowledge and skills how to design and run educational processes in an international surrounding.
For more than 20 years, the Education Centre Kurt Löwenstein of SJD - Die Falken Germany is an international meeting and encountering place for members and activists from IFM-SEI, IUSY and YES. In various seminars like Winterschool, Summerschool, Queer Easter and other seminars we discuss, dream and make plans how to contribute to social change.
For us it is important that these seminars and trainings are run by an international team to share different approaches and experiences, and to learn more about different realities we live in. The international team is composed of active members from various member organisations from all over Europe, Israel and Palestine. They meet regularly, receive trainings and develop ideas for seminars in these meetings.
The training is also open to everybody wanting to learn, but not join the center's international team.
The training will be about
- ideas and methods of non-formal education,
- inclusion of political and cultural aspects into methods of non-formal education.
- ideas of socialist education and
- reflective and anti-discriminatory education.
Our center provides various activities for a non-formal educational setup that can be tried and learned in this training.
We will also do a guided visit to educational institutions in Berlin and a workshop on organisational and fundraising aspects of international seminars.
The participation fee for the seminar is between 50 and 100 Euro, depending on the country of residence. Travel cost reimbursement from some countries is possible.
Contact: If you or your organisation is interested to participate in the seminar, or if you have any questions do not hesitate to contact Jonas Gerber.
Hygiene: Currently our house operates under some restrictions due to health prevention. We follow special rules of hygiene (sorry, only available in German), such as covering mouse and nose in the corridors and dining hall, washing and desinfecting hands on a regular basis and seperation of different groups in the house. So far we have succesfully organized several seminars under these conditions. We are confident, that the training will be possible. If it has to be canceled, we will not charge you anything for it.
