I am planning to use my learnings inthe future projects at home organizations, university, etc. - bymaking more videos”-Shabnam

Professionally, I was able to learn alot about video production as well as promotion of social-ecologicalprojects in general: different techniques, methods, tips and tricks, etc. -thank you for that! I was the most motivated during ... times where weworked together in (new) teams plus times where we could leave the placeand film outside/at other places in Berlin as well as interacting with peoplefrom outside/the organizations. It was once again confirmed to me that thecoming together of many people from different backgrounds, with differentskills, etc. is very enriching.”-Nadja


“I learned how to work with different tools that I didn't usebefore, for instance, the microphone. I also learned that thereare many ways to promote your work through filmmaking, nomatter the field that you work at. I was the most motivatedwhile watching our end results and realizing how empoweringthe results were. The most important experience for me wasmeeting a new organization for whom we made a movie later.I will continue to use the skills I learned with the organizationthat I work at. The project taught me how empoweringfilmmaking can be!”-Nino


“I learned to work in teams and how to use storytelling. It wasgreat to work with amazing people and I think I will useeverything that I learned in my everyday life!”-Saba


“It was a great chance to learn how to create social promotion videos ina very short time. I have learned time management and keepingdeadlines. I already made a short video with my colleague and we usedskills which we got in Berlin. I often use all the new skills in my dailywork as a TV journalist. I was the most motivated during the practicalactivities though the fact that there were mixed activities made it notboring.”-Giorgi


“I met good professionals and learned team building skills andvideo making skills. I was the most motivated during the last filmmaking session. The most important experience for me was gettingto know new people and discovering Berlin as a creative space forsocial impact. I will use all the new knowledge with my NGO inGeorgia.”-Akaki


“I met amazing people and learnt how to communicate with differentpeople and do everything on our own. Also, I had the chance to acquireuseful skills on Video making, content creation, directing a film andacting and got to know more about SDGs. I was the most motivatedduring the session in which we had to work all as one group that was sochallenging and also so good. The most important information for mewas how to use Capcut and create a video. I am also planning to createa youtube channel that will be as a sightseeing video. I will showdifferent parts of Germany.”-Tamim


“I learn how to engage and exchange with other participants, to
complete assignments in a short period of time (time management)and to improvise and create ideas (thinking outside the box). Also, Iacquired some practical skills in filmmaking, guerilla filmmakingskills and team-working skills and I learned how to createpromotional videos according to the needs of organization and editfilm material. I was the most motivated during the process ofengaging with the local organization "Haus der Nachbarschaft" andthe purpose driven film against domestic violence. The mostimportant learning for me was the realization of making somethinggreat with little and basic resources (equipment, time, etc.). I willtake all the information and share the knowledge with myorganization in documenting the work we are doing for youthempowerment.”-Linn


“Personally, I learned that I am able to sustain any process as long asI protect my focus. I learned a lot about teamwork and teambuilding.Filmmaking requires a great team work and this teamwork requiressoft skills. Therefore being a professional in a specific field is notenough for teamwork. That showed me how important soft skills are.When I had a chance to pick my teammates I always chose the oneswho are good at soft skills besides their knowledge and experience onvideo making. When I didn't have a chance to pick, I challenged mysoft skills and I realized that sometimes being in a random group isalso a good way of testing yourself. Secondly, I learned how tooperate DSLR cameras and discovered different ways of using phonecams. I contributed with my guerilla skills. The moments that we stuckin the team I tried to come up wıth creative solutions. I was the mostmotivated during the YEPP social promotion video. I believe that I willimplement what I experienced in my daily life and production processwith my friends, my audience, and the ones that are willing to learnsomething about video making.”-Halil

“I improved my teamwork skills and learned some stuff about
camerawork. I'm moderately satisfied, there were times that I feltslowed down by my teammates and also myself. I was the mostmotivated during the group meeting before the activities. The mostimportant learning for me was that you are not always on a dreamteam and that you have to cope with what you have. I will try and usethe skills I learnt to create more videos.” -Stathis

“I learned how to deal with different personalities in every team and
how to cope with what I have. I was the most motivated during our scouting day. The most important information and experience for mewas to contact an organization. I will try to implement all this info inmy everyday life and in my job.”-Michaela

“I gained more awareness about my limits and learned about backstage
management of a project and potential issues connected with an increasingnumber of tasks. I was the most motivated when I was accepting tasks,helping with the activities and the places, assisting the participants, makingatmosphere during the sessions, listening needs and requests. The mostimportant experience for me was the background process and sharing tasksand I will share what I learned with my organization!”-Federico

“I learned so much about working with other people and relying on them. I
learned to make an activity fun if you don't feel it is. Also, I learned moreabout Guerrilla Video Making, which I knew about but constantlyunderestimated! I will try and implement some more teamwork in my usualworkflow and, maybe, from time to time, some guerrilla video making- Icould do this for an active project I'm part of. As a professional videomaker,it's been great to start from scratch again. Sometimes, I need to remindmyself of the essentials. This project took me back and taught me much!”-Andrea

“This experience gave me lots of opportunities for learning: first of all more self
confidence when I speak English, before I was so shy because I thought that Iwasn’t able to speak and understand but it was just in my mind. In additions toskills of video making, I could work in a team, was the first time that I workedwith other people for do a work because I’m still studying and I have neverworked for someone. Every skill that I’ve learnt there I will use in my privatework.”-Samuele

“I learned how to work in a team and how to create videos with simple tools and
how to deal with ideas in a better way. I've been abroad before and I metdifferent people but this course included new nationalities with differentcultures than mine so that added more. After this, I helped my sister with makinga video for a scholarship that she wanted to apply for.”-Hanan

“I improved my english and made new friends, acquired video making skills and
teamwork skills. I was the most motivated during our work in the Hanf museum.I am going to use what I learnt in my everyday life and to help my university withthe instagram profile of the museum's university.”-Dalila


“The project taught me to set my priorities and that planning before the
action is the key. I was the most motivated during the filming days andthe team meetings. The most important learning for me was thatsimplicity often comes across more powerful.”-Marta

“I learned how to work with people with different skill levels, and how to
try to relax and not stress about the outcome with such limited time sinceit's just for learning. I think that this training course was mainly forgetting inspired. I was enthusiastically taking part in the exercises andtried to make the best results possible with the little tools and time wehad. In the last assignment I felt the most responsibility since an actualorganization was planning to publish the video. In real life I would havetaken more time to complete it so that I could be proud of the outcome,but here I was really stressed to deliver something decent to them, so Iwas highly motivated. Also, I learned to not take everything so seriouslyand enjoy the experience. I would love to teach kids about film andphotography, so if I manage to do that then I would definitely use thebuild up strategy from this training course.”-Landa

“The most important thing I've learnt is teamwork. Although we've been talking
about teamwork all the time, to deliver quality work within such a short time isvery challenging, and teamwork matters a lot. I realized that it's possible toproduce videos without editing, thus ideas matter, not editing. This is veryimportant, because I've spent too much time on editing in the past. This hasgiven me a new approach to making videos. I enjoyed working with people fromdifferent countries. It's very interesting to understand how other people think. Iwas most motivated during assignments, because everyone's devotion, creativeideas and our works are so inspiring. Everyone wants to learn and createsomething meaningful. It WAS my first time to participate in an Erasmus+ project. The most important experience for me was that it's amazing to get toknow people from so many countries in such a short time, to live and worktogether for several days. It makes me feel like we have known each other for along time. I understand how people from different countries think about certainthings, and we exchanged cultural communication, which is very helpful for meto better understand Europe. I do keep in touch with other participants. It's atreasured experience. I will implement what I have learnt in our organization, aswell as my own channel, and other possible video projects. The project taughtme that completion is more important than perfection.”-Ning


“I have a lot of personal reflections which are too much to write here. Mycreativity started, my openness increased, I felt the power to take up newprofessional activities. I learned the courage to take action despite smallresources. I also started to feel that I can be an inspiration for youngpeople. My filmmaking skills have improved. I learned basic video editing. Ifelt that I could be a good helper and a right hand for others. the quality ofgiving feedback increased SIGNIFICANTLY. A lot of assignments in thisprogram were motivating for me, which makes it hard to choose only one.The most important learning for me was that If something is not how I like -I MAKE IT! Actually I already started to record again in my life, which I hadstopped a few years ago... I will put recording movies into all my action Itake. Will use the skills in my workshops, going on workshops, and doinginterviews with people. This project reactivated my dormant creativity infilming, and generally - dormant creation and expression. This project was aturning point in my life - it came in perfect timing! A lot of empiricexperiences made this project work for me.”-Stephanie

“I could work on my language skills, I met many interesting people, I learned
how to use everything that I have always with me to do good movies. I evenlearned how to make lessons with my students more interesting and funny.Throughout, I contributed with my smile, help, skills and equipment. I was themost motivated during the creation of social promotion videos. The mostimportant information, experience for me was that you need to be there, learn& meet people. I will implement this in everything in my work - school.”-Ela

“Personally, I learned some tricks and tips on video making. Working with the
museum was amazing as we learned new information about the hemp industry.I was the most motivated during the sessions on the editing process. The mostlearning for me was that you can make great videos with nothing if you have agood idea. After it, I started preparing with my organization ESN UL, a videopromoting mentor programme.” -Maria


“I learned how to work in teams and how to learn from other people. I had thechance to show my working skills and help others and also to share myexperience. I was the most motivated during the visit to the hemp museum andthe work we did together there. The most important learning for me was to seethe work of each other and to work in teams. I believe that I will use what Ilearned in my personal and professional life. It was beautiful to meet manyincredible people.”-Antonio

“I learned that you have to do the most with what you have and guerrilla
techniques for video making. It was exciting enough, interesting enough... Themost important learning for me was that we are the creators of our own story.Each person in the group had something unique to add to the team.”-Lara

“I learned to understand the ideas of the people and put them in common as
well as work in a group. Also, I learned Some techniques for applying in myvideos. I was the most motivated during the social promotion video. Themost important experience for me was meeting everyone and creating asocial video for an organization. I will use my learnings in my daily lifebecause I work as a photographer and filmmaker. In all, it was an importantopportunity to meet different people and work together -every moment wasunforgettable!”-Roberto

Humor is serious business

‘Humour is Serious Business’ (Working Date) 24th – 31st March 2014, Estonia


‘Humour is Serious Business’ is a Training Programme aimed at youth work practitioners from a wide range of countries who have an interest in and commitment to the examination and use of Humour as a pro-active and deliberate methodology in their work with young people and other youth work communities.


The programme provides space and time for participants to examine a multitude of issues, concerns and questions related to the use of Humour in an effort to increase their skills, knowledge and experience of Humour as an effective method of engaging young people.  The programme uses the ‘H-Factor’ (Heart, Head and Hand) methodology to underpin practice and learning.


The objectives of the programme are: (i) upskilling youth work practitioners in the use of humour as an effective tool for engaging young people and youth work communities (ii) enhancing knowledge of the various types of humour so as to increase understanding of how, where, when and why it can be applied (iii)  increasing awareness of how humour can be used as a pro-active and deliberate methodology in youth work and not just as a natural consequence of and response to specific situations (iv) consider cultural differences in humour and understand better how these can be used to support and inform youth work practice (v) providing space and time for practitioners to reflect upon the use of their own sense of humour and consider where it can be altered to support their practice (vi) challenge participants to step out of their ‘comfort zone’ in order to appreciate their own commitment to learning (vii) developing local humour-based programmes to test methodologies and techniques with a view to informing humour-based practice and (viii) the development of a number of joint-actions between partner organisations

Educating Consumers - Creating New Citizens

Dieser Trainingskurs hatte zum Ziel, die europäischen Werte von Bürgerlichkeit und Demokratie zu fördern und gleichzeitig die Bedeutung von Globalisierung und Konsumverhalten unter Jugendlichen zu betrachten. Als Jugendarbeiter obliegt einem die Verantwortung, Veränderungen eines sich wandelnden Europas als Multiplikator sinngebend weitergeben zu können.

Olympic Games - Sports and Games as a Tool in Youth Work

Dieser Trainingskurs wurde von uns entwickelt, um internationalen Jugendarbeitern die Möglichkeiten von Sport als Medium und Mittel in der alltäglichen Arbeit nahezubringen. Neben der fachlichen Arbeit standen insbesondere der interkulturelle Austausch im Mittelpunkt dieser Maßnahme. Durch die Begegnung von Menschen aus acht europäischen Ländern wurden neue Jugenbegegnungen initiiert und erfolgreich durchgeführt.

Conflict Management in international Youth Exchanges

Dieser Trainingskurs richtete sich insbesondere an ehren- und hauptamtliche Jugenarbeiter, die sich in internationalen Jugendbegegnungen engagieren. Ziel war es, persönliche Konfliktlösungsstrategien zu analysieren und zu reflektieren und Konflikte konstruktiv für die eigene Arbeit mit Jugendlichen zu nutzen. An diesem Kurs nahmen 18 Teilnehmer aus neun verschiedenen Ländern teil und erlebten diesen EU-Trainingskurs im BJGZ in Scharmbeck/Winsen.

Animation as a Tool in Youth Work

Heutzutage ist es für viele Jugendarbeiter nicht einfach, den Zugang zu Jugendlichen zu finden. Mit diesem EU-Training haben wir Jugendarbeitern aus acht Ländern Methoden und Handwerkszeug dafür geliefert, um auf spielerische Weise Beziehungen aufzubauen. Auf dem Programm standen einfache Jonglage, Simple Magic, Clowning und Modellierballons. Damit konnten wir die Jugendarbeiter mit neuem Rüstzeug ausstatten. Durch den internationalen Kontext sind neue Verbindungen entstanden, um den europäischen Gedanken praktisch in die Tat umzusetzen.
