Young Leaders - WOODCRAFT NEEDS YOU!

Tuesday, 26 November 2013

We at Woodcraft we believe that all young people who want to should be able to take on leadership roles in a way that best suits them. But what is a leader?  A leader comes in all sorts shapes and sizes.

Shaping Participation: sharing practice for a stronger youth-led future

Event date: 
20 February 2014 - 10:00am - 4:00pm
Event location: 
Regent's University, Regent's Park, London

Woodcraft Folk and NCVYS (the National Council for Voluntary Youth Services) are bringing together many youth organisations and colleagues from the co-operative sector for a free day of workshops and discussions on the theme of youth participation. It will be a brilliant chance to find out how other organisations involve young people, and celebrate all the ways Woodcraft Folk and NCVYS empower younger members. As TREE's final big event, we also hope it will be a chance to look back on five years of exciting development work and hand over our learning and resources to Woodcraft Folk's team of highly skilled volunteer Ambassadors of Youth Participation!

Our Times: campaign activities for Venturers

 

 

Our Times is the new campaign from young people around Woodcraft Folk, who want to give other young people a platform to be heard on social and political issues including war. The aim is to enable young people to educate each other on the issues they care about, and enable wider society to hear and respect young people's views.

We've put together a range of activities to get your Venturer group thinking about society and what they care about most in it. Download the PDF below.

 

International Negotiations and unfair resource distribution

Time taken: 30 minutes to play and at least 15 minutes for reflection. 

Equipment: About 80 sweets (small, individually wrapped, variety to suit all tastes)

This game is designed to simulate international negotiations. It is based on "Prisoners Dilema" type experiments from economics.
