The Russian invasion of Ukraine was a wake-up call for this generation of youth in Europe that peace cannot be taken for granted and needs our constant effort.
This training course for youth workers involves: supporting participants to increase their capacity to respond to challenging situations, by developing skills for inner-peace, learning methods of inter-personal conflict management and peacebuilding and nonviolent methodologies for social change that can be used by youth workers to engage youth as active citizens in nonviolent awareness raising actions regarding war and climate change.
The aim of the training course is thus to empower youth workers with peacebuilding skills and provide youth with tools to become active citizens speaking out against war and global warming.
The objectives are:
- Letting youth workers develop skills to work on peace on the personal level, to enable them to respond to the youth in a peaceful manner;
- Letting youth workers develop skills to work on peace on the inter-personal level, to enable them to de-escalate and solve conflicts in their youth groups and support peaceful group dynamics;
- Letting youth workers develop skills to work on peace on the social level, to enable them to implement nonviolent awareness raising actions regarding the interrelationship of war and climate change, and assist youth in becoming active citizens;
- Enhancing the peaceful cooperation between European organisations, exchanging experiences and practices, so they can form a pacifist voice together for our future.
