Training in the great outdoors
Over 20 youth workers from Austria, Estonia, Greece, Spain, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia and Malta recently took part in a training course on outdoor education organised by the Malta Unesco Youth Association in Marsaxlokk.
The course explored outdoor education as a tool for youth workers to help young people develop a more active, healthy, counter-industrial and ecological lifestyle.
The participants learnt through experiential sessions.
The training included a first-aid course, a rescue at sea session with the St John’s Rescue Corps and an abseiling session facillitated by the Malta Outdoor Association.
The training course was funded through Action 4.3 of the European Commission’s Youth in Action programme.
