We are excited to announce that Time for Tea is expanding outside Europe. 2021 will see the start of a new series of activities in India, Thailand and the Philippines in addition to the UK and 14 other European countries. With support from the EU Erasmus+ Programme, the new project “Time for Tea in Europe and Asia” (TTEA) will run for two years, and will include training courses for teachers and youth workers, study visits, local youth advocacy projects, and an international dissemination event bringing together young people from Europe and Asia.
This new phase of Time for Tea aims to demonstrate the four key principles of youth work (participation, empowerment, education and inclusion), the efficacy of non-formal learning, and how this adds value to school-based education in each country. It will set an example of youth advocacy on sustainability issues (SDGs). It will create exceptional opportunities for professional knowledge-sharing and intercultural learning. Mutual benefit between all partners will be a fundamental principle of our approach.
Partners in the TTEA project are:
Rural Centre for Human Interests (RUCHI) – India
Biderbost Boscan & Rochin (BB&R) – Spain
