Youth for Peaceful Conflict Transformation
Date du début: 1 juil. 2014, Date de fin: 30 juin 2015 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

The course is a direct reflection of the interests and needs of young people in partner countries and communities. Main project context is the concept of ‘conflict transformation’ (as opposed to ‘management’ or ‘resolution’), focusing on the transformative power of youth work in addressing conflict situations (even if they cannot be fully resolved, they can be transformed into something more positive). The course will therefore focus on the positive outcomes of conflict management. The course will bring together youth workers and youth leaders from EU and Eastern Europe and Caucasus (EECA) countries to address issues of conflicts in international youth groups, commonly based on misunderstanding, stereotypes and prejudice. The course will bring together 30 participants from 10 countries (three participants per country from the UK, Lithuania, Romania, Croatia, Poland, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Russia and Ukraine), most of which are involved in international conflict and disputes that often spill over to influence relations between groups of young people attending international events. They are active members/youth workers/volunteers working in their organisations on the daily basis. The course’s educational objective is to develop participants’ competences in non-violent conflict transformation tools. Specific objectives include: developing conflict transformation skills, fostering non-violent attitudes do conflict situations, understanding stereotypes and prejudice, combating racism and xenophobia. The main outcome of the project is personal development of each of the participants in terms of their increased competencies of conflict management (theory and practice, via non-formal education) as well as drafts of potential future youth endeavours (local or international projects within the E+ framework) addressing various aspects of conflict management. The course will be held at the ASHA Centre in the Forest of Dean between 30.10 and 07.11.2014
