General Description

The overall aim of the project are:

– To qualify youth educators and peer educators in planning, delivering and evaluating educational programmes on peace education for young people
– To enable the participants to design educational materials and activities for peace education programmes for young people

– To enable the participants to realise educational activities for young people on peace education on community or international level
– To trigger transnational partnerships on peace education among youth organisations

In order to reach these objectives, PACE is composed of the following core activities:
– a training course on peace education
– a 3,5 months period during which the participants implement education activities on peace education with young people in their communities or at international level
– an evaluation seminar reviewing with the participants their conducted workshops at community level

The participant profile is the following:
• knowledge and understanding of peacebuilding and conflict transformation
• Knowledge about the specific conflict context in their communities
• Work experience and current involvement in a NGO working with young people by educational means on community level
• Have led at least 3 local or international educational programme (youth exchange, workshop, etc.) for young people
• Motivation to take part in a mutual learning process in a highly intercultural setting
• Good level of English to follow the course and to contribute to it

That is the guiding question of the two-stage training course PACE. It offers an opportunity to:

  • Deepen your understanding of conflict resolution, discrimination and peace;
  • Acquire educational tools how to work on and counter discrimination;
  • Network and develop own ideas with participants from six different countries.

We will actively involve the participants and engage our brains, hearts and bodies. Apart from a simulation game and methods from the Theatre of the Oppressed (Augusto Boal), our methodological approach includes theoretical inputs, discussions, workshops, reflections, best-practice examples, excursions, cooperation games, open space and others. The participants will be lodged in shared rooms.

The seminar language will be English. Participants are expected to be able to communicate fluently in English.
