Over 80 young people from all over the country have been inspired for change on the second Youth Forum "Truth or Dare - Challenge You To Be" at Youth Center Plovdiv last weekend. The event brought a huge interest to young people who were involved in activities based on untraditional methods of learning, communicating and uniting. They had the opportunity to touch Suggestopedia, Orph Sulverk Methods, Visual Ideas and Music Therapy, together with the lecturers Vesela Lupke -Valkova, Ina Petkova and Svetla Todorova.
Through various art activities - graphic drawing, playing, singing, storytelling, the young people have discovered unsuspected creative and communication qualities and skills that are waiting to be developed. Youth workers from the center's team have provoked the adolescents to go beyond established forms and rules, and inspire a change in patterns of communication and break the stereotypes.
A lot of fun, positive emotions and new friendships brought the event to the youngsters who confirmed they would pass on their peers' valuable experience. The center's team said the forum would evolve as non-formal education ideas and practices and build on the next editions. An event for teachers and directors is expected soon, with guest lecturers presenting different forms of learning through experience, emotional sharing and the results of the youth forum.
