Summary:

Conflicts shatter lives and stunts development. And at the heart of many violent conflicts lie
issues of inequality, injustice and exclusion. Conflicts have multiple drivers, operate as
systems, are often local and do not stop at state borders. Responses require the influence,
resources and commitment of different people and institutions, at different times. And young
people, as members of a dynamic group in society, play a crucial role in positively
transforming conflict situations and in building the foundations of democratic and peaceful
societies.


Peacebuilding activities address the root causes or potential causes of violence and stabilize
society politically and socioeconomically. Thus, successfully create an environment
supportive of self-sustaining, durable peace; reconcile opponents; prevent conflict from
restarting; integrate civil society, and address underlying structural and societal issues. That
is why partner organisations are putting their voices together to start this youth exchange to:

  1. Build bridges between participating countries and promote values and behaviors of
    understanding and coexisting necessary to re-establish a culture of peace;
  2. Facilitate theatre and role-play activities as well as mediation sessions to help participants
    find ways to prevent conflict and accept differences;
  3. Facilitate conversations about peace and integration;
  4. Provide young people with the opportunity to engage in constructive, peace-building
    activities.

Requirements:

  • 18-30 years old
  • full COVID-19 vaccination
  • interested to familiarize themselves with the concepts of peace-building and conflict prevention
  • motivated to communicate and share their experience with others.
