“Young people should be at the forefront of global change and innovation. Empowered, they can be key agents for development and peace. If, however, they are left on society’s margins, all of us will be impoverished. Let us ensure that all young people have every opportunity to participate fully in the lives of their societies.”
— Kofi Annan —
Upcoming international opportunities
Improving the participation of youth in social, civic, political and democratic spheres on the grassroots level to contribute to the local development and help with shaping local policies through democratic processes.
Improving the personal and professional competences among youth to help them grow their careers and improve their lives through developing their sense of initiative to become changemakers.
Improving the sense of and the spirit for values and principles among young people to help them to build a common understanding and mutual respect that together advance the progress of our societies.
Improving the synergies between youth and the local societies including diverse and disadvantaged groups to build an inclusive culture of tolerance and solidarity that connects, not separates us.
The European Multidisciplinary Organization for Training and international Consulting (EMOTiC) is a youth-led organisation with the aim of strengthening the abilities of youth (18-30years) on issues related to the development of their lives, careers and communities. Through capacity building, we empower youth with the necessary competences (skills, knowledge, attitudes) and with innovative, adaptive, and results-based tools to facilitate their engagement in shaping their community and tackling social issues constructively to achieve a positive impact on the grassroots level and build more inclusive, livable and healthy societies. Through our various activities, we aim to enhance youth as active members and multipliers of change and transformation through the promotion of inclusion, equality, and diversity values as well as sustainability. These values and goals are reinforced by transnational synergies and partnerships among youth to build more resilient societies based on mutual trust, respect, solidarity, and intercultural understanding.
VISION & MISSION
The goal is to build future generations of youth with advanced professional and personal capacities and competencies who are able to develop their local communities. We aim to achieve this goal through non-formal education by equipping youth with the core knowledge and helping them to develop skills and improve their attitudes. This is complemented by critical and analytical thinking; endorsing multidimensional perspectives; fostering the role of youth in democratic participation, and promoting a nuanced understanding of social engagement. As such, we support and contribute to achieving various global youth policy recommendations emphasized in the
(I) UN Youth Resolutions 2250 (2015), 2419 (2018), 2535 (2020),
(II) European Union Youth Strategy for 2019-2027,
(III) United Nations Sustainable Development Goals for 2030,
(IV) Council of Europe Charter Human Rights Education.
In a constantly changing and interdependent world, it is imperative to apply a multidisciplinary approach to the learning and development process of youth to equip them with various soft and advanced transversal competencies (skills, knowledge, attitudes) that can be adapted to and applied in various contexts. Therefore, as a youth organisation, in our work, we focus on a few different but interconnected educational areas such as Peace Education, Environmental Education, Digital Education, and Civic Education (including human rights, gender studies as well as democratic values and principles). Through this multidisciplinary approach, the youth build proactive entrepreneurial mindsets and they learn how to identify where issues and matters interact, but more significantly, where they should interact to build logical reasoning and provide innovative transformational solutions.
All EMOTiC’s activities support the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), especially the five mentioned goals as they are of special importance to us and are at the center of all our projects and trainings.
