An idea, we all have it. In the morning while drinking a coffee we think, we reflect about greater things. What if our idea would be the one that could change the world and make it a better place. How to spread our thoughts and inspire others?
TED – Thought Education Dissemination is a TC that aims to equip youth workers with needed competencies to communicate their passion. We will invite 24 youth workers to Murzasichle, Poland from 12th to 19th of January 2018. We will enhance their communication competencies and empower skills of spreading their ideas to inspire youngsters they work with. While using methods of non-formal education in the atmosphere of tolerance and solidarity we will focus on communication as a key factor in their work. As a final result participants will share their new-gained knowledge on a conference in Krakow. Later on, the created “TED Talks will be distributed and uploaded to social media and other platforms to spread our passion and inspire others.
