We are planning to organise a training course in Greece with the title: “Embracing Conflict and Diversity“. The title of this training reflects the core concepts and key competences: embracing conflict means to acknowledge conflict (instead of avoiding) and engaging in a conflict-solving process in which people gain mutual understanding and thus come closer together. Embracing diversity involves acknowledging differences and supporting mutual respect and understanding through dialogue and communication.
The aim of of this training course is to improve practices of dealing with conflict and diversity in youth work in Europe, by offering youth workers relevant knowledge, exercises and tools and exchange best-practices.
Youth workers that work with youth from culturally diverse backgrounds from or residing in Greece, Netherlands, Italy, Germany and Spain are elegible to apply.
The pre-liminary dates are July 25th to August 2nd (including travel dates), 2020 which will be confirmed by the end of May. You can already access the application form here.
You can also have a look at the first draft of the program, to get an impression of what you will learn. This program may change a bit, but not too much.
