So, what is STEP UP about?
CISV’s STEP UP programme encourages young people to take a leading role in planning and organizing activities. The participants and their adult leaders use CISV’s peace education to guide the theme of the camp around which they plan activities, such as identity, democracy, or environmental protection.
STEP UP delegations come from nine countries and are comprised of four young people, 2 girls and 2 boys, who are accompanied by an adult leader. The camp is coordinated by adult staff. Here are some photos!
We encourage youths to challenge the norms as part of their learning process and share what they learn, hence, interactive presentations were also integral to the programme.
