Aim of the seminar is to provide leading competences supporting youth workers in their work, allowing them to raise the long lasting motivation and active engagement of young people to public issues, civic life and common projects. Therefore we will focus on tree main topics: Entrepreneurship, motivation and active participation. To reach this topics in educational process (as well as in civic life and public topics), it is important to create environment where personal ideas, abilities, competences and dreams of young people are not only accepted, but meaningfully integrated and used for common benefit. This creates a sense of belonging to community and raise of personal motivation and interest.

Dragon Dreaming method supports managing projects of any kind, focusing on deep engagement of every member. It offers methods for the realization of creative, collaborative and sustainable projects and organizations. The method integrates holistic aspects which have long been ignored, separated or divided in our culture: our right and left brain hemispheres, logic and intuition, individual and environment, theory and practice, thought and action, work and play, success and failure. Dragon Dreaming is based on liberating collective intelligence, creativity, cooperation and the sleeping power within ourselves and inherent in our communities.

D.D. is inspired by living systems, theory of chaos, development of organizations and knowledge and wisdom of aborigine spiritual traditions. D.D. is a game with new rules: together we develop and live win-win-win projects. We will learn to implement all important steps of D.D.:-Dreaming – Planning – Realization and Celebration. We include all the participants, their qualities and needs. We do our best to name and meet the dragons (obstacles) on the road. Then we can realize even that, we haven´t dream about. Together!

This Training course is built on experiential learning, and participants will explore and learn how they can use the method in their organizations, communities and future work for developing sustainable long lasting project.
