Meet the facilitators

Elisabeth EinwangerElisabeth Einwanger

Over the last 20 years I have been working as a trainer, facilitator and course leader. Based in beautiful Tirol, I have designed and facilitated a big variety of formats in the field of youth, adult education and multiplier events, in the scope of Erasmus+, European Solidarity Corps, Austrian Alps association, Austrian Economic Institute and Bolzmann Institute for Human rights.  I feel challenged by elaborating new ideas and conceptualizing different types of training and seminars – either online, in presence or hybrid – nourished by fruitful cooperations with colleagues, contractors and participants. Having facilitated various events in the frame of Solidarity, I am deeply impressed by the strong and heartful spirit of people involved in small, but impactful projects. Singing and spending time out in nature charge my batteries and prepare the ground for new ideas and upcoming steps

I am facilitating groups in formal and non-formal contexts using different methodologies as outdoor, adventure education or Service Learning. I am especially involved as manager, trainer, facilitator or educational resources developer in programs that tackles active citizenships, human right or sustainable development. I am mostly active in Romania, but the program and organizations I have been serving have programs that has impact across the globe as: New Horizons Foundation, A.R.T. Fusion Association, World Vision International, WWF, etc. I am also an Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps beneficiary and trainer in the Romanian National Pool of Trainers.  When it comes to my work in solidarity, I love to see how a little seed in the right moment, the right environment and with a bit of support can grow into a beautiful person.
