A training day was held on February 18th, 2015 by the associations CEMEA ( Training Centres for Active Education Methods) and Mashhed in collaboration with
PASC-Gafsa and Al Mawred Al Thaqafy under the theme of " Education for the benefit of associations and public players in the field of youth and sports".
This training provided by the CEMEA director , was an opportunity for participants to enhance their knowledge by the experiment conducted by the center since
the late thirties and by the active approach taken by the trainer as an educational tool .
The objectives are as follows :
Define the objectives of an educational project : why ?
Define for which categories of people an educational project is constructed : for whom ?
Define the necessary tools to make an educational project successful in its active approach : how ?
Start a " dynamic shared dialogue " on cultural and educational strategies in the region .
Mixed work and reflection groups were formed to adress each of these issues by using past experiences as part of community life and international volunteering
" An educational project is expected to benefit many categories of people, ranging from infancy to the elderly, also to intervene to help people facing
specific issues (vulnerable and marginalized, disabled...) For me, and after the workshops for exchange and learning organized in the local PASCA-Gafsa, I see
that the objective of an educational project has evolved considerably, thus leading it to adapting to the environment, which is a great thing !" Skander
Rezgui, President of the UNESCO Club.
" During my academic carreer, I have learned that education is all about approaches that are exerted on the youth or the ones which the youth exert on their
surroundings , and all combined , they contribute to the creation and the development of their personalities, and this is of course the desired outcome of an
educational project . In fact , giving sense to the proposed activities involves a change in the approach to the construction of the project which has to be
participatory and adapted to the realistic expectations of the young people while respecting them and putting under their disposition the human resources ,
financial and materials necessary". Imen Haji, Head of programming of activities in the Mansion of Youth of the city of Gafsa .
