Of what use is our knowledge if we do not share it with those around us?  OTI and all of its subsidiaries, members, networks and staff focus most of our energy on education, allowing ourselves to learn more from each other and also for us to teach what we have learned to others.

 

 

Some of our main focus areas in Education

 

Youth Education – Helping young people through a variety of activities including formal, non-formal and informal methodologies to increase their skills, knowledge and competences.  We are continuously developing new methodologies to increase the impact on youth education.  Working with you allows us to understand their problems and their needs and then develop solutions for these problems.

 

Adult Education – Developing and offering a series of courses and trainings to enhance the skills of adults of all ages to increase their employability and offer them more tools to develop themselves and their entrepreneurial ability and skills. We offer a variety of courses which allow adults to gain skills for personal and professional development.  Our adult courses are developed to deliver usable skills in a variety of fields.

 

Cultural Education – In order for our world to develop and grow we need to first understand the roots of the people who inhabit it.  In order to understand this we need to understand the culture, the customs and traditions and also the roots of all our cultures so that we can understand that as people of this world we are more connected than we think.  Our aim is to help people from all corners of the world to embrace their culture and to share it with others.  We undertake a variety of activities and events in the areas of cultural promotion and education from youth projects to cultural festivals and exhibitions.

 

Environmental education – Our homes, our towns, cities and countries make up our environment.  We strive to preserve and protect our environment in every way and not only for human sustainability but for all means of life on our planet.  By researching every element of our environment and understanding all aspects of life, we can start to education our children, our peers, our parents and our teachers on the value of environmental sustainability and preservation. 

 

Health Education – Promoting a healthy life is a main priority as it fits into our goal of preserving life in all forms.  A large area of education is focused on healthy living and making the correct lifestyle choices and this is achieved through a variety of training courses, activities and events which help educate people of all ages on the important issues relating to health.

 

Human Education – Human education is a term we developed when developing a series of courses which focus on issues that affect human life.  These include active citizenship, discrimination, human rights, xenophobia, drug abuse and many other fields that affect us in different ways all over the world.  By dealing with people from all over the world we can learn from them and understand them better and help educate people on all the issues that are important to them and us.

Testimonials

Where Do I Belong…………………...

A great question. A question that most of us have asked our self’s, our friend everyone.

Do we have an answer though, is it possible?

Well in Romania during the course of this Youth Exchange we tried and we tried hard. For me personally I kind of know how to answer this question to myself now. And for me the answer is ‘’everywhere’’. 

And why is that because in this amazing project I learn some valuable lessons. Lessons about discriminations lessons about stereotypes. I had the chance to be in the shoes of an immigrant trying to find asylum or in the shoes of a nationalist extremist activist, that gave me the ability to understand stuff to see the world through a different eye and to realize that everything is A MATER OF PERSPECTIVE. And that perspective led me to my answer. 

WDIB was an amazing project for me one of the best I attended or probably the best. The OTI team as always was amazing with the workshops and the OTI Romania team was spot on everything through accommodation (on that lovely small and homey hotel with good food) through general organization of the entire project. An amazing team that was always there to support each and every one of us with all our needs. 

I am really grateful I took part to this magnificent project not only because I get to learn all the stuff I did but because I had the chance to mix and meet lots of new people, but I also had the blessing to make new true friends. Friends that I will cherish for the whole of my life .

Until we meet again all
