Youth Time Global Forum Teaser

The Youth Time Global Forum in Barcelona will be a unique event, which will gather together more than 100 par­tic­i­pants from all over the world with the aim of com­ing to solu­tions for the most preva­lent youth issues.

The topic of the annual event is The New Era of Employ­ment and Edu­ca­tion: Solu­tions for Change. The topic will be rel­e­vant to the loca­tion and the cur­rent real­i­ties on the ground there. Young peo­ple who are look­ing for inspi­ra­tion and peo­ple who have inno­v­a­tive ideas on how to tackle these issues will be brought together at this event, to come to effec­tive solu­tions for change that inevitably will con­tribute to a new era of employ­ment and education.

The pro­gram will con­sist, first, of work­shops and sec­ond, of project pre­sen­ta­tion meet­ings, in which par­tic­i­pants and experts will eval­u­ate the pro­pos­als the pre­sen­ters have made. The pro­gram will also include round­table dis­cus­sions with promi­nent guests, and there will be time for social activ­i­ties, in which par­tic­i­pants will explore Barcelona and will have a chance to get to know each other



Tips: How to Make YTSum­mer the Most Effec­tive Per­son­ally for You

Julia Kinash, YT Move­ment pres­i­dent and an expe­ri­enced attendee at many forums, train­ing ses­sions, and schools, has come up with 10 use­ful tips on how to make ytsum­mer the most effec­tive ever.

  • Define your main goal for Sum­mer School in Ham­burg and focus on it.
  • Don’t com­plain that you don’t have enough of time to rest or party hard. Don’t for­get your main goal.
  • Be ready to be sur­prised 24-​hours a day.
  • Leave your stereo­types at home, open up your mind to new peo­ple, expe­ri­ences and knowledge.
  • Don’t waste your time on empty stuff. Remem­ber that you have only three days to live the Sum­mer School adven­ture. Using your time well can bring about change that will last a lifetime.
  • Time can be your friend and enemy at the same time. Be on time wher­ever you go.
  • Don’t for­get about sleep. Keep your­self fresh.
  • In every process dur­ing Sum­mer School try to find some­thing unique and impor­tant exactly for you. Use your brain to analyze.
  • Don’t be shy, be open and com­mu­nica­tive as much as pos­si­ble. Talk to each other, talk to train­ers and experts. We put a lot of effort into find­ing the best of the best to help you to develop your skills. Use this oppor­tu­nity to talk in per­son to promi­nent spe­cial­ists from all over Europe.
  • Don’t for­get to use our hash­tag #ytsum­mer, post pho­tos, videos and your impres­sions. Together we will cre­ate more mem­o­ries about the won­der­ful time we will have in Ham­burg together.

’Pre­pare for the Unknown Show­ing Itself as a Pow­er­ful Source for Growth’

We con­tinue to acquaint you with a team of mod­er­a­tors and experts who will be work­ing with us dur­ing YT Sum­mer School. Meet Jaron Reis­man. He is going to mod­er­ate ‘Con­flict Rec­on­cil­i­a­tion’ work­shop. Jaron is absolutely out­stand­ing trainer and entre­pre­neur from the Netherlands.

Hi Jaron. You’re new to Youth Time. Tell a bit about yourself.

I’m mar­ried to Sharon, (father of Lilach), and we live in Ams­ter­dam. I pri­mary work is at Know­mads Busi­ness School as exec­u­tive direc­tor, pro­gram coor­di­na­tor and tribe guide (Tribes are our groups).

After a cou­ple of years of Entre­pre­neur­ship in Online Pay­ments, I decided that it was time to switch to a more bal­anced approach to my pro­fes­sional and pri­vate life. I learned a lot about entre­pre­neur­ship, grow­ing com­pa­nies and self-​awareness. This made me decide to become a trainer and entre­pre­neur for purpose-​driven devel­op­ment of indi­vid­u­als and organ­i­sa­tions. I work accord­ing to five principles:

- Self-​leadership: Organ­i­sa­tions and indi­vid­u­als find a flow if their work is purpose-​centered. Yes,organisations can also be approached as hav­ing a self.

- Con­nect­ing lead­er­ship: Bal­anc­ing lead­er­ship and follow-​ship: We talk about “con­nect­ing lead­er­ship” at the point where peo­ple serve their own pur­pose and the pur­pose of the organisation/​community they work in.

- The power of the com­mu­nity as a facil­i­ta­tor of our per­sonal suc­cess and hap­pi­ness, and a

source for the future of lead­er­ship in this world

- The pur­suit of “value” and “profit” goes beyond finan­cial means, and value exchange goes

beyond the exchange of money for a product/​service.

- There is a place called home for every­body, even if you have a multi-​national back­ground. At Know­mads Busi­ness School I work with and am inspired by peo­ple and our com­mu­nity. We are set­ting a future stan­dard for self-​directed learn­ing and co-​creation in our pro­grams. Along­side this I offer a work­shop based on com­mu­nity learn­ing, neuro-​linguistic pro­gram­ming and trans­ac­tion analy­sis. Some of the titles include:

- “Liv­ing your talents”

- “The art of shared leadership”

- “Con­flict res­o­lu­tion — turn­ing con­flicts into a for­ward force”

- Mas­ter­class: “Devel­op­ing com­mu­ni­ties that learn”, with Kim van Rijt

- “Serv­ing Self-​Leadership”: Find­ing a way to bal­ance your pur­pose and the pur­pose of your organ­i­sa­tion in such a way that your actions are right and sustainable.

I also do life-​coaching, busi­ness coach­ing and tribe (team) guid­ance within the school pro­gram frame as well. The tribe guid­ance often ask for con­flict res­o­lu­tion, which I very much like to offer.

What is the ‘Con­flict rec­on­cil­i­a­tion’ work­shop going to be about?

Reveal­ing to par­tic­i­pants how their sub­con­scious con­tributes to their behav­iour, and how theiraware­ness of this hid­den con­tri­bu­tion can be turned into a power that can con­tribute to res­o­lu­tion of the conflict.

What will the for­mat of the work­shop be?

Intro­duc­tion based on sto­ry­telling, the­o­ret­i­cal fram­ing, work­ing in groups of 2/​3, shar­ing and work­ing in a larger group.

What should Sum­mer School par­tic­i­pants do to pre­pare before attend­ing your workshop?

In case they have never expe­ri­enced sys­temic con­stel­la­tion a new world will open up for them, which I would say is hard to exactly explain if you never expe­ri­enced it your­self. So pre­pare for the unknown becom­ing present and show­ing itself as a pow­er­ful source for growth

How Sum­mer School atten­dees could use the knowl­edge they will get dur­ing the work­shop in the future?

It is prac­ti­cal in an indi­rect way. Par­tic­i­pants will learn to look at con­flicts from a dif­fer­ent per­spec­tive than just the ratio­nal way. This will lead to a lot of options in con­tribut­ing to more har­mo­nious sit­u­a­tions when con­flicts are faced.
