First training: The Ikigaï


Discovering your Ikigai: Play4Peace Academy's first training course

Play4Peace Academy kicked off its very first program by hosting a special training on Ikigai. This workshop, led by the talented Framboise Boël, marked the start of an exciting journey for Academy students.

What is Ikigai?
Originating in Japan, Ikigai is a profound notion that encompasses the joy and meaning of life. It's the place where passion, mission, vocation and profession meet. It's finding that intersection between what you love, what you're good at, what the world needs and what you can get paid for. Ikigai is the secret to a fulfilling and rewarding life.

In this workshop, students explored this fascinating concept, getting to know their passions, skills, and deepest aspirations. Framboise Boël guided our young people on the path to discovering their Ikigai, encouraging them to reflect and exchange on their aspirations.

Alignment with values
One of the most striking aspects of this training was the importance of aligning oneself with one's values. Our students realized that to achieve their Ikigai, it was essential to stay true to their deepest values. By connecting with what's truly important to them, they found the strength to persevere in their quest for fulfillment.

The power of active listening
Another aspect that was highly appreciated was Framboise Boël's active listening, which intensified the quality of the workshop. The students felt that their learning experience had been amplified by this attentive and engaged approach. 

These reflections highlight the significant impact of genuine listening and deep engagement when learning about powerful ideas such as Ikigai.Towards a future full of promise

This first Ikigai training has paved the way for a series of exciting discoveries for our students. It's a testament to our commitment to providing them with experiences and knowledge that will support them on their entrepreneurial journey. We believe this training has ignited a spark of motivation and understanding that will continue to shine throughout their journey at Play4Peace Academy.

We look forward to sharing more of these transformative moments with you, and to watching our young people move towards a future filled with promise.

"Working with Play4Peace was a real privilege. We had to deal with a passionate and motivated team who want to help young people to create links and to develop personally. Objectives particularly important in this cosmopolitan city that is Brussels. Play4Peace to me. recalled that you must always keep an open mind in all circumstances. I have fond memories of this and I hope to be able to collaborate with them again in the future."
