Eastern Encounters – Creating space for dialogue and peace
Our organization in collaboration with its partners has developed a daring dialogue program in the spirit of the EaP program and the European values.
The dialogue process is aimed to the enhancement of the partners’ skills in peacebuilding and a social change on a hand, and the creation of a transnational dialogue forum on the other. Stable partnerships based on a common understanding of the complex issues will optimize collective action and the advocacy outreach of the partners.
Youth Workers, Young people
APPROACH / METHODOLOGY:
Our action was based on strategic thinking and down-to heart thinking.
During the first action, the participants went through an high-quality training about peacebuilding and conflict management. In this TC they confronted topics like conflict analysis, advocacy, reconciliation and project management, in the second training, the participants instead went deeper into the idea of peace intervention and the technical skills needed to promote a peacebuilding campaign.
In the third phase, the more committed among the participants gathered to integrated their local and personal experience and they will device conflict sensitivity workshops to be implemented in the following youth exchange. Last but not least a controlled multiplication event wasimplemented with a youth exchange the former participants will act as team leaders for the national delegations in the exchange and they facilitated also the workshop they had previously devised and that we will implement in the youth exchange.
All of this was achieved through an intercultural and transnational dialogue that will bring people together from different backgrounds and different realities to celebrate together peace diversity and peace social activism.
