Young People and Creativity

Many youth-workers and teachers around Europe want to make youngsters active citizens instead of just passive consumers.
They want to involve youth. They want to involve youth in developing and running youth clubs, centres or youth-houses.
They want to involve young people in their own education throughout project work in the schools.
But how do you do it? How do you find the young peoples good ideas? How do you work together with young people in developing activities and projects for youth instead of just producing it yourself?
What skills do you need to make activities and projects of high quality together with youngsters?
What practical tools do you need, when you stand in front of a youth-group, that you want to involve?
How do you make young people take responsibility?
How do you make yourself pass over responsibility to young people?

"Young People and Creativity" is a module, that consists of tools designed to involve young people in developing, planning and running projects and activities relating to themselves.
The tools can be used in youth clubs, in youth houses/centers, in schools, in sportsclubs.
They can be used in any place, where young people spent time with activities.
