It did this through:
- Developing educational materials on global issues tailor-made for young
- Building capacity in youth workers to train young people on global issues
- Providing easily-accessible training opportunities for youth organisations and young people on global issues.
Scotdec worked in partnership with organisations from Bulgaria, Austria, Estonia, Lithuania, Cyprus and Ghana. Over the 3 years of the project we engaged hundreds of trainers, facilitators, youth workers, representatives of national umbrella organisations and young people.
A major success of the project was the development of the handbook Global Youth Work which was designed by youth workers and global education experts to promote global youth work as mainstream practice across Scotland.
In Scotland Scotdec built a strong partnership with YouthLink Scotland, Youth Scotland and Education Scotland to deliver workshops to over 250 youth workers representing 43 organisations.
The success of the project is evidenced by the external evaluation and the reactions from youth workers who participated in the project QUOTES.
