The North-South Centre (NSC) of the Council of Europe invites application for participation in the 7th Global Education and Youth Training Course for Youth Multipliers from 18th until 23rd September 2017 in Mollina, Spain. This training course is organized in the framework of the 18th University on Youth and Development and aims to empower representatives of youth organisations to further support the practice of GDE based on the NSC’s Global Education methodology, contributing to develop a better understanding of intercultural education, intercultural learning and intercultural competences.

Do you want to develop intercultural competences to facilitate peer-learning processes with other young people? If yes, apply now.
This activity is part of the iLegend project: Intercultural Learning Exchange through Global Education, Networking and Dialogue co-funded by the Council of Europe and the Civil Society and Local Authorities Programme of the European Union.
The North-South Centre will issue pre-paid flight round-trip tickets from your country to Malaga.
