"Time for Tea" - Training Course in London. This is a unique new project for youth workers, trainers and other adults who want to inspire and empower young people. The project is in 3 parts: Training course (London); local youth activity in the home country; and public dissemination event (London). When busy people have a cup of tea, they stop and think for a moment. Our leaders are no different. So what would you like them to think about while they drink their tea? Groups of young people or children from different countries imagine a short message on an issue that they think is important. They decide who they want to hear their message. Then they buy some tea, and design the most original and creative box or packet for it. They put their message inside the special packet, and find an interesting way to deliver the message to the leader they have chosen. All they are asking is that the leader should spend 5 minutes having a nice cup of tea and thinking about something which young people say is important. Finally, they tell the story of what they did, using film, photos, blogs or other creative media.
