The European Multidisciplinary Organization for Training and international Consulting (EMOTiC) is a youth-led organisation with the aim of strengthening the abilities of youth (18-30years) on issues related to the development of their lives, careers and communities. Through capacity building, we empower youth with the necessary competences (skills, knowledge, attitudes) and with innovative, adaptive, and results-based tools to facilitate their engagement in shaping their community and tackling social issues constructively to achieve a positive impact on the grassroots level and build more inclusive, livable and healthy societies. Through our various activities, we aim to enhance youth as active members and multipliers of change and transformation through the promotion of inclusion, equality, and diversity values as well as sustainability. These values and goals are reinforced by transnational synergies and partnerships among youth to build more resilient societies based on mutual trust, respect, solidarity, and intercultural understanding.
The goal is to build future generations of youth who have advanced professional and personal capacities and competences and are able to develop their local communities. We aim to achieve this goal through non-formal education by equipping youth with the core knowledge and helping them to develop skills and improve their civic attitudes. This is complemented by critical thinking and analyzing capacities; endorsing multidimensional perspectives; fostering the role of youth in democratic participation and dialogue, and promoting a nuanced understanding of international development and social engagement. As such, we support and contribute to achieving various global youth policy recommendations emphasized in the (I) UN Youth Resolutions 2250 (2015), 2419 (2018), 2535 (2020), (II) European Union Youth Strategy for 2019-2027, (III) United Nations Sustainable Development Goals for 2030.
We are active in the areas of Peace Education, Environmental Education, Digital Education, and Civic Education.
We organise training courses, workshops, and youth exchanges. We are also planning to organise conferences soon once the pandemic situation improved and allows.
Currently, we are running 5 projects as the main coordinator and we are a partner in several projects with many other youth NGOs.
Two of our ongoing projects focus on Social Peacebuilding as a tool to enhance youth civic participation and one project focuses on policymaking and structured dialogue to enhance youth democratic participation. In addition, we have a project on environment and climate change and another one on the utilisation of board games as an alternative tool for youth inclusion.
The team of EMOTiC has extensive previous working in the MENA region through the organisation of several activities for youth from the region. Thanks to the previous experiences and our network of youth and youth organisations in the region, we can facilitate cooperation and partnership opportunties and help reach out to groups that are not reached through conventional means.
We align our goals with the objectives from ALF Network and we strongly believe that being part of ALF Network will provide us with a great opportunity to not only connect with other partners that are active in the field but also to learn from each other and support the work of other partners and join forces.
