Abstract

Schools for Future Youth is an EU Erasmus+ funded project running from 2014 – 2017 and taking place in Cyprus, Italy, Poland and the UK. The SFYouth project aims to build skills and capacity of teachers and young people to use global citizenship to improve teaching and learning. The project encourages both curricular engagement with global issues and spaces for young people to actively participate and take action on global issues through informal spaces in school. The SFYouth project developed a range of resources for use within the formal and informal curriculum and advocated particular strategies to support young people’s participation in social action. The resources link to specific thematic areas and support the development of young people’s skills and competences. Youth Ambassador Groups (YAGs), which are voluntary groups of young people that meet outside of formal lessons, to learn together about global issues, whilst developing skills and confidence to get their voices heard, were adopted in participating schools. This report is a comprehensive account of the data collected on the Schools for Future Youth (SFYouth) project and answers questions about how the project impacted on teachers’ and young people’s understandings and experiences of global citizenship and youth participation in Europe. Specifically the report responds to the questions: 1. What impact did the Schools for Future Youth project have on schooling activities and approaches to teaching and learning? 2. How did the Schools for Future Youth project impact on participating teachers and young people? 3. What factors supported the impact of the Schools for Future Youth project?
