Working with the youngsters has always meant to work hard for the construction of the future. In front of phenomena that strongly characterize our era, such as climate changes, economic crisis, migrant fluxes that keep growing, as well as in front of an escalation of violence, of a politic always more distant from citizen's needs... Which kind of scenarios do we have in front of us nowadays?

Working today with the youngsters means to face challenges that does not only regard the anxiety and the uncertainty due to their phase in life cycle, but means also to face challenges linked to socially caused disadvantages in an historical moment in which the malaise becomes mistrust and impotence, as also becomes disintegration, intolerance and violence.

Which kind of contribution may the youth workers, involved in non-formal education contexts, give to the construction of new meaningful horizons and to the construction of new social citizenship models, both inspired to nonviolence values?

Which courses of action could be appropriate to create contexts that promote a growth autonomous and respectful of differences in an intercultural world?

Urgency force us to choose simplified solutions, often merely to contain and answer to emergency, but that don't consider the quality of contexts we are living in, so that these solutions only put a patch and postpone problems.

How can the theory of complexity help us to develop coherent visions and practices, appropriate to world fast changes? Which kind of learnings are suitable for live in more and more heterogeneous contexts?

During the seminar we will explore, through games and non-formal education activities, these questions guided from/following a systemic and ecological approach, non-violence orientated.
