GLOBALAB is a capacity building follow up process coordinated by Future World Center, PEN and Global Citizen Academy, Young People We Care, Tanzania Youth Cultural Exchange Network, and SOUL-XPRESSIONS CO LIMITED seeking functional links and synergies between youth work and the Sustainable Development Agenda. Sub-Saharan African and European partners are working together on improving competences in youth work, its quality and recognition, and to foster new non-formal learning mobility schemes.
• From Africa: Uganda, Ghana and Tanzania.
• From Europe: Lithuania, Bulgaria and Spain.
The project aims at developing the competences of youth workers in the area of facilitating the Global Learning, free of Eurocentric approach, and focused on the real life examples. The European partnership has already created the manual GLOBALAB and the mobile application based on the 6 steps approach, that aims to activate young people to take actions in the areas that interests them, and they find important.
