GLOBERS project coordinated by our partner Association InCo is operational from the first months of 2020.

"GLOBERS: Global Learning to Overcome Barriers Encouraging Respect and Solidarity" aims to involve young people in international volunteering experiences to educate them to global citizenship and to raise awareness of European values ​​in general.

The specific objectives of GLOBERS are:

  • strengthen the skills of youth workers in the field of European project management, global citizenship education, and youth participation, with particular regard to human and migrant rights and sustainable development, through the exchange of best practices and the creation of 'a workshop agenda;
  • offer new international volunteering activities to young people who have fewer opportunities, in order to support them and help them strengthen their transversal skills, their personal and social skills, their employability potential;
  • raise awareness of global citizenship in participating communities, foster a better understanding of migration as a natural process in the global community, and promote empathy and solidarity;
