Active Nonviolence: Peace begins with you(th) – Training for youthworkers

September 17, 2018 @ 8:00 am - September 23, 2018 @ 6:00 pm

During this project for youth workers, you will gain knowledge, insights and skills in Conflict Transformation, Nonviolent Social Change & Peacebuilding. There are 3 phases: webinars, a training course and implementing follow-up activities.

“Active Nonviolence: peace begins with you(th)” has the aims to: empower youth workers by knowledge, insights and skills to prevent violent escalation of conflicts, transform conflicts and engage in (inter-cultural) peaceful interactions and relations, increase the capacity and collaboration of Peace Builders in Europe, and impact society and support one another to sustain the motivation to be a Peace Builder.

You will join four webinars about some key conepts/theories, that will be the basis of the training course. At the training, youth workers from 5 different countries will improve their skills in conflict transformation and nonviolent activism. We will address both violence and nonviolence, and specifically focus on the role of youth. How can they be empowered as peacebuilders?

We will do different exercises and role plays and develop projects/actions to address a social issue (something participants choose). You will implement it after the training and the trainers will support you with advice.

You can have a look at the program on our website.
