APV of the KA1 HELPDIS in Madrid

 

 

The Advanced Planning Visit has been from the 15th to the 17th of July 2019 in Madrid. Some of the most important topics that we discussed where the subdivision of the tasks of the partners, the presentation of the risk management, proposal of menus, management and supports for disabled people or division of the participants in the rooms.

 

On the first day, we had a Welcome Meeting. Later, on Tuesday 16th, we started the meeting in the Youth Center Chamberí: at the beginning of it, MAD for Europe made a presentation about their organization and then the other partners presented theirs. Afterwards, everything related to the project was explained and we reviewed some details such as the dates, the budget that each member has, the number of participants, etc. We follow-up on selection criteria and participants’ insurance and described a definition of work strategies for group training before the starting of the Project.

 

Later, we had a small breakfast and them we discussed about more topics such us the subdivision of tasks of the partners (group dynamics to develop, group games, facilitators, brainstorming, multicultural events, etc.), the presentation of the risk management list and its solutions, the management and supports for disabled participants and some proposals of menus for intercultural meals and dinners. We also discussed about the division of the participants in the rooms.

 

After lunch, we visited the accommodation place and later all working places where the activities will take part. With this, we also had a Guided Tour in the city centre of Madrid, so all the group leaders had the opportunity to know more the city.

 

All the Group Leaders had the opportunity to stay at the hostel, so they could see all the facilities of the accommodation that the participants will have.

It was a very successful meeting because we had time to explain all the project: objectives, main idea, the activities one by one, insurance, dates, accommodation, meals… All partners have been very willing and have collaborated with their ideas.

 

We are very happy because it has been a really good meeting!

Our 5th KA1 Youth Exchange has been a total success!

 

A few days ago, we enjoyed our 5th Youth Exchange in Madrid! The topic was how to recycle in a dynamic way. 

 

KA1 R3CYCLE has been a project that has united 48 participants from 8 different countries: Spain, Italy, Portugal, Romania, France, Germany, Greece and Bulgaria. We had a lot of fun and all of them learned a lot about the topic of recycling. We did all the activities and some of them where very good to know each other, they have become great friends!

 

With this project, we wanted to raise awareness among young people and citizens who were involved of the benefits of recycling, since usually people are not aware of the importance of reusing materials. At the same time, the project aims to know the different techniques of recycling and what is done later. It is especially interesting to train the participants in this field knowing the whole environmental process that is applied in Europe.

 

The project was organized with physical activities and environmental methods which were tools also to promote active citizenship among young people, intercultural dialogue and that overcome barriers and fears, to play and work in teams and to be able to accept and understand any person, wherever they come from.

 

We organized a series of activities, all related to the world of Recycling that were realized in a recreational environment, open spaces and outdoor places; all of them connected with the non-formal education of young people.

New Course! Happy School and Positive Education

 

We’re very happy to announce a new Training Course that MAD for Europe will impart from now on in Madrid! The name is “Happy School and Positive Education”, and its about how can teachers help with the feelings of the students at school.

 

With this course, we want to combine the importance of the feelings and emotions of the students. We want to focus on this aspect based on the studies of Martin Seligman, an American psychologist, who gives special importance to this topic in his “Positive Psychology” documents. The aim of this course is that, thanks to the techniques that teachers give to their students, they can discover their strengths by studying, so that they can see it in a more dynamic and productive way, combining success at the academic level and at the social level.

 

It has been created for teachers, students, professionals and stakeholders. The duration of the course is 1 week and it will be done in the centre of the city of Madrid.
