The Group’s vision should not be scaled down to another offer of events in the established palette of EGEA activities. The Training Group is attempting, instead, to introduce a whole new learning culture for EGEA, on which the Group invites all members to rethink of learning as an experience; an experience not restricted to training courses. Our mission includes offering opportunities for development of competencies (knowledge and skills), motivation, teamwork, leadership, problem-solving and organizational management. The Group’s training strategy supports equally collective and individual learning, learning from peers, learning from experiences, allowing mistakes, experimentation and diversity in learning styles as diverse are the various learning experiences.
We foresee to inspire a new generation of young geographers to discover their talents and seize personal development opportunities, to qualify EGEA staff with compelling skills, to distinguish EGEA’s own team of trainers, to affect EGEA’s capabilities to adapt to the external environment and manage change, and to use results of learning to achieve even better results for our Association. 9
