What a YEAR! (Youth, Empowerment, Action, Resilience). Do you want to join?
We invite you to be part of a project that we are presenting to the Erasmus + European Partners program, where you can add participants from your networks and organizations.
Building personal and group resilience for youth and youth workers in a post-pandemic context
For a week we generated a meeting circle, to exchange stories and experiences about the impact that the coronavirus pandemic and confinement has had on our lives and communities and especially among young people, who have come from different European territories.
We will share tools for emotional crisis management and the promotion of personal and group resilience, giving space to reconnect and rebuild dreams and vital projects. This reconnection with desired scenarios may inspire others, and positively impact our communities and create a laboratory to build new narratives that represent the futures we want to live (more humane, personally, socially and environmentally sustainable) and that facilitate actions. resilient that lead us to them.
We will design collective projects learning agile methodologies to work in complex contexts and with high uncertainty, providing participants with tools to dream, plan, act and celebrate the milestones of the project and its team.
The psychosocial health impacts of the pandemic are a fact; a high percentage of the Chinese population that suffered from confinement has symptoms of trauma. In addition, youth, specifically the millennial generation, have seen in a short period of time of just over 10 years, how two great crises have profound impacts on their vital projects (the economic crisis of 2008 and now the crisis derived from the coronavirus) .
Before facing the pandemic, we started from a scenario of ecological and social crisis, we see the current crisis as an opportunity to transform and create new models of life more in tune with a healthier and more balanced relationship between the environment and society.


With an action learning methodology, we invite young people and youth workers – through various dynamics that combine theory and practice – to become familiar with various tools for emotional management and conflict transformation in the personal and group, project design and change processes. All this combined with spaces for group creation and reflection, giving space for what is alive in the group to emerge.

METHODOLOGIES that we will put into practice:

Dragon Dreaming: Agile and Sustainable Project Design created by John Croft. wwww.dragondreaming.org
Process Work or Process Oriented Psychology, created by Arnold Mindell and colleagues. This methodology offers us tools to facilitate personal, group or social conflicts.

Method Description

Dragon Dreaming (DD) is a holistic approach that combines the living systems theory and deep ecology with traditional methods of agile project design and management, in addition to the     ancestral wisdom of indigenous Australians.   This methodology is the result of work of over 30 years that has evolved thanks to the contribution of hundreds of thinkers, educators and change agents such as Gandhi, Paulo Freire, Jung, Joanna Macy, Scott Peck, Arnold Mindell, Marshall Rosenberg, etc …

Dragon Dreaming works with a four-stage process of creating Projects: Dream, Plan, Do and Celebrate, and 12 different phases of the project to use in your organisation. John Croft is the co-creator and leading advocate of Dragon Dreaming worldwide.Thousands of people and organizations from over 30 countries have participated in DD workshops and consultancies.

Dragon Dreaming can be applied to various purposes; for undertaking a project, the    creation of new products or services    and the implementation of structural changes and vision within an organization. Dragon Dreaming takes us out of our comfort zone to reach our maximum creativity, adopting at the same time a culture of win-win and authentic communication.
