Учебный курс: «Конфликт против налаживания отношений: практический тренинг для молодых миротворцев»

The training course “Conflict vs. Connection: A Practical Training for Young Peace-builders” will take place in Yerevan, Armenia between April 10 – 17, 2017. It will involve 36 youth workers from the European Union Member States (Germany, Cyprus,  Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Latvia and Poland) and Neighbouring Partner Countries (Armenia, Georgia, Moldova, Russian Federation, Ukraine and Turkey). 

The course will be focusing on diversity, conflict transformation and emphatic communication. Seeing diversity as a barrier instead of appreciating its enrichment has been playing a substantial role in both the national and international debates and politics in each of the participating countries for decades. 

The transformation of the conflicts starts from us: our hearts being in war or in peace, our  way of communication. When we grow in peace with ourselves, we can continue to bring the transformation to our surroundings: our interpersonal relations, the way we connect and relate to our families, friends, acquaintances, strangers, communities. All these topics will be brought to attention in the TC.

Getting a better understanding in how we, people, function and what gets us together and keeps us walking the same direction is crucial for youth workers and peace builders of today. This will be done by promoting non-violent approaches leading to actions on peace-building and promotion of Human Rights. Moreover, young leaders will discuss the significant role of youth participation in grass-root peace-building initiatives.

The objectives of the Training Course are the following:

  • To develop awareness about personal concepts and believes one has about conflict and habitual ways to react to the conflict;
  • To identify effective methods that help to prevent and/or transform conflict through fostering non-violent communication;
  • To gain knowledge on key concepts, such as conflict management, conflict transformation, conflict resolution, inner belief systems and non-violent communication;
  • To gain tools for non-violent communication and conflict transformation;
  • To exchange best practices in relation to youth work and conflict, inter-religious and cultural dialogue;
  • To help participants reflect on the competence needed for using different tools to develop dialogue;
  • To raise awareness of risk factors under which conflicts tend to arise;
  • To facilitate networking between participants;
  • To raise the visibility of the Erasmus+ program as a tool for development.
