Training for Trainers: "Education for social change"

17.10.2021 bis 23.10.2021

From 17th to 23rd October 2021 we organize a training, in which we want to provide knowledge and skills how to design and run educational processes in an international surrounding. Register now!


For more than 20 years, the Kurt Löwenstein Education Centre of SJD-Die Falken Germany is an international meeting and encountering place for members and activists from IFM-SEI, IUSY and YES. In various seminars like Winterschool, Summerschool, Queer Easter and other seminars we discuss, dream and make plans how to contribute to social change.

For us it is important that these seminars and trainings are run by an international team to share different approaches and experiences, and to learn more about different realities we live in. The international team is composed of active members from various organisations from all over Europe, Israel and Palestine. They meet regularly, receive trainings and develop ideas for seminars in these meetings.

The training is also open to everybody who wants to learn, but not join the centre's international team.

The training will be about

  • ideas and methods of non-formal education,
  • inclusion of political and cultural aspects into activities of non-formal education,
  • ideas of socialist education and
  • reflective and anti-discriminatory education.

Our centre provides various activities for a non-formal educational setup that can be tried and learned in this training. We will also do a guided visit to educational institutions in Berlin and a workshop on organisational and fundraising aspects of international seminars.

As usual, the seminar will be in English.

17 - 23 October 2021

Currently our house operates under some restrictions due to health prevention. We follow special rules of hygiene (sorry, only available in German), such as covering mouse and nose in the corridors and dining hall, washing and desinfecting hands on a regular basis and seperation of different groups in the house. So far we have succesfully organized several seminars under these conditions. We are confident, that the seminar will be possible. If it has to be cancelled because of the pandemic, you won’t have to pay any fees!

Feel free to contact us with any question.
