In recent years, we have observed an increasing radicalization in public communications and an increase in hate speech on social media. News and social media are dominated by escalating and polarizing language. Nationalist, anti-democratic and racist actors are threatening social cohesion worldwide with targeted fake news. This has become increasingly clear over the past 10 years and has reached a new level since Russian troops invaded Ukraine: democracy and peace are under threat worldwide.
With this training, which is part of our long-term project "Young Activist for Peace", we want to remind you that we as human beings are also characterized by the ability to communicate successfully, to cooperate, to show compassion and to act in solidarity. We believe that the ability to communicate successfully is a key to greater understanding and appreciation for one another and contributes to a more peaceful society.
Our training aims to provide the opportunity to develop knowledge by learning and performing. We are inspired by the following questions:
We are happy that Christoph Pinkert will be our trainer this year. He is an experienced trainer, lecturer and supervisor for peace education, conflict management as well as leadership and organizational development, whose achievements are recognised at an international level. During the training, he will combine theoretical concepts with their practical implementation to reach a non-violent conflict resolution.
The participation of Ukrainian participants as well as online communication with Russian young people is planned.
Become part of the international community working for peace and a world without discrimination!
We invite two participants from EU- and neighbouring countries from each partner. Some experience in youth or non-formal political education is required. You are welcome to use the experiences and results of this project in your own work.
