MEGA Training – Combat Euromyths and promote critical thinking

Train-the-Trainer for youth workers to address Europhobia in an informal, playful way in youth clubs and other places where young people meet.

The MEGA-team is happy to announce its training course that addresses youth workers and all those that work with young people. The course is a blended learning offer which seeks to enable youth workers to implement the MEGA approach at empowering young people to critically analyse Europhobic distortions of the European Union and to learn to act as “European ambassadors”, i.e. to convincingly spread realistic images of the EU among their peers.
