EuroCourse is an international opportunity for European leaders organised by FIMCAP, the international federation of Catholic parochial youth movements. This year’s EuroCourse, titled Head in the Cloud, kicked off on Thursday 1st February. The theme chosen was media literacy and critical thinking. 24 participants aged between 18 and 25 years, originating from 8 different countries, including Malta, Germany, Catalonia, Lithuania, Belgium, Denmark, Romania and Slovakia, spent 5 days in ŻAK house, Birkirkara Malta.
Every three years FIMCAP organizes a World Camp. A World Camp brings together around 60-70 youth leaders from all over the world. They will share games, songs and ideas from their local youth movement. Together they will reflect and work on a specific theme. After spending a first week together to get to know each other, the participants split up in 4 mixed groups to do voluntary work in local community projects. During these days they will also stay in host families. After 10 days they come back together to share their experiences.
World Camp will take place from the 27th of July until the 19th of August in the Philippines, hosted by our member organization Chiro Philippines.
The theme is a red thread throughout the World Camp. It will be brought to the participants via discussions, games and speakers. During this World Camp we will reflect on responsible consumption. We will look at ourselves and our habits, and reflect how they affect the world we live in.
