  • PDF

On the 21st – 27th October 2017 this project brought together teachers, youth workers, volunteers from 18 different countries including the UK for three linked activities:
1. A training course about how to set up and organise a Time for Tea activity at the local or national level. The participants first practiced the activity together with other team members, and then made a detailed action plan for organising Time for Tea in their own countries. They were also trained on how to use video to report their activities.
2. After their return home, they have up to 6 months to organisetheir own Time for Tea project with a group of children or young people. They will produce a film of their activities.
3. Finally, the participants will return to London in April 2018 to share their experience and to present their project results at a public dissemination event in central London, for a VIP audience of key stakeholders and sponsors.

About the project:

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.
