Inclusion is one of the biggest challenges faced by all EU member states. In the recent past,

significant social upheaval has taken place across the continent. Huge numbers of people

have moved into and across Europe, and this has led to an upsurge in radicalization, the

creation of divisions, and the erection of both physical and mental barriers. Europe

nowadays has more physical walls between countries than it had during the height of the

Cold War.

This challenge of how to create a safe and inclusive Europe is a high priority in the Erasmus+

program: “Europe needs more cohesive and inclusive societies which allow citizens to play

an active role in democratic life. Education and youth work are key to promoting common

European values, fostering social integration, enhancing intercultural understanding, and

creating a sense of belonging to a community, thus preventing violent radicalization.

Erasmus+ is an effective instrument in promoting the inclusion of people with disadvantaged

backgrounds.”

Youth workers are viewed as professionals for whom inclusion is an important part of their

work - in particular ‘youth at risk’ is an important target group for youth workers. Young

people who feel excluded and disappointed, with little confidence and self-esteem, are in

danger of becoming involved with extreme groups. Youth workers deliver important

outcomes with young people who have ‘dropped out’.

In this field, where the solutions are not immediately obvious, innovation and innovative

ways of working are critically important in developing professionals and organisations.

The focus of this Training Course is on the stages before the problems start, using the

methodology of Labyrinth Theatre, which is a proven, effective method to detect feelings,

values and senses under the surface. It can be utilized as a prevention tool by stimulating

feelings and commitments on a deeper level, which can help to avoid exclusion and

isolation.

This European project is an opportunity to examine and reflect upon the issues around

inclusion from different perspectives, to learn from different countries and cultures by

sharing knowledge about new ways of working, and to clarify ideas around a common

understanding of inclusion. It will also help to build a wider and better European network to

tackle the challenges around how to be more inclusive within Europe.
