ESN Finland - Social Inclusion Weekend Vaasa 2019- Event
Social Inclusion Weekend Vaasa 2019 was a national training event with a comprehensive focus on the cause of Social Inclusion. The idea was to train and motivate Local Social Inclusion Coordinators with the help of an agenda consisting of team building activities, presentations, workshops and a social programme. The social programme of the event also had a subtext of training and educating - the participants had the opportunity to attend a Dinner in the Dark, in order to get a first hand-experience of participating in a typical Social Inclusion Event. The side idea of the training, besides the strong focus on Social Inclusion, was to create an event inspired by non formal-education and international Eduk8-events. Another part of the Eduk8-idea was also noticeable in the fact that the team of trainers consisted of two experienced trainers (part of the Eduk8-pool) and three new trainers who had all just completed Eduk8 Starter. Thanks to a successful funding and an ESAA-grant, the participants enjoyed the event without a participation fee.
