I Giovani Parlano con l’Europa: are you ready for the second cycle of workshops on active citizenship and comics?
Is it possible to use comics as a means to promote active citizenship among young people?
Following the success of the first cycle of workshops, targeted at young students from Palermo, we are ready to run a new series of Europa e Nuvole workshops, promoted in the frame of I Giovani Parlano con l’Europa.
Starting on May 28th, 2018 this second cycle of workshops will focus on active citizenship while allowing participants to create comic strips.
Supported by a group of experts, young people will talk about what it feels like to be an active citizen, strengthen their soft skills by carrying out non-formal activities and creating comic strips inspired by their own reflections and research.
You don’t need to be an artist to participate in the workshops: our activities are targeted at young people aged 16-25 who are eager to grow as citizens and would like to share their ideas and opinions with peers with different cultural backgrounds.
Participants will lead their own learning journey, they will be encouraged to take transformative individual and collective actions to foster social changes, fight against prejudices, deconstruct stereotypes and promote values such as solidarity, inclusion, mutual respect.
The workshops will be held on Mondays, from 15:00 to 18:00, at CESIE, in via Roma 94.
Please note that the second cycle of workshops will start on May 28th and will end on July 30th, 2018.
A certificate of completion will be awarded at the end of the workshops.
If you want to attend our workshops, you just need to fill in our online application form by May 24th, 2018.
