Event such as the climate crisis, COVID 19 and the recent Afghanistan humanitarian crisis has once again highlighted the need for global community to act. However, do we fully understand what being part of this global community means? how do we define our global identity? And what can we do to tap into the collective action needed to act on global issues affecting people and planet today. These are some critical questions that youth work and youth spaces need to engage with. To support these conversations, our One World Week resource this year will tackle the theme of “Global identity and Collective actions”.
The free One World Week workshops are aimed at young people and youth workers. We will use non-formal development education methods to connect young people and youth workers with the theme. Using activities from this year’s resource, the aim of the workshop will be to build knowledge on the theme, introduce new skills for educators, and help you and young people take action in your community that connects with the global community.
This year due to continued Covid-19 guideline and restrictions, One World Week workshops will be facilitated in an online space or in a physical space where it is possible and safe.
