International Project 2017
The International Project 2017 is a Erasmus+ funded programme involving teachers, youth workers and organisations from over 18 countries. Training for participants will take place during August at Brunel University and October at Newlands Park residential centre. Participants will go away and run Time 4 Tea in the respective countries before meeting again in London in April 2018 for a big showcase event.
The project will involve 100’s of people and stories/films will be shared on this website – sign up for the newsletter (click here) to be kept informed of how a cup of tea can change lives.
This project will bring together professionals from 18 different countries for three linked activities:
- A training course about how to set up and organise a Time for Tea activity at the local, national and international level.
- When you return home, you will have up to 6 months to organise your own Time for Tea project with a group of children or young people. You will produce a film of your activities. All the films will be uploaded and shared on the Time for Tea website.
- Finally, you will return to London in April 2018 to share your experience with all the other participants, and to present your project results at a public dissemination event in central London, for a VIP audience of key stakeholders and sponsors.
