in an international dialogue. Globalization and global conflicts are a part of everyday life. By bringing
together youth leaders from different countries and cultures, we hope to increase their awareness of
conflict, and help them develop paths towards resolution. These youth leaders represent their
countries and communities, and it is expected that they will return to these communities, bringing
with them and furthering the understanding of conflict resolution that they will have acquired.

intercultural dialogue and in cooperation by bringing together youth from different countries;
– to prevent intercultural conflicts that are based on stereotypes, through the creation of an
atmosphere of mutual understanding and cooperation between these youth leaders from different
In the course (with plenary sessions, discussions, workshops, creativity sessions, intercultural &
interactive exercises and using other non-formal education methods) youth leaders will discuss the
significant role of youth participation in different peace building activities, and will explain their own
role in a wider society.
The project is inspired by the needs of protection and promotion of human rights, intercultural
dialogue and democracy, and particularly those related to youth policy in Europe and to the
reaffirming young people’s role as active citizens and protagonists of social change.
Aim of the project
To promote and support the role of young people in peace-building activities that contribute to living
together in dignity and dialogue through a network of specifically trained young people who
strengthen the presence and promote the values of the Council of Europe in conflict-affected areas
The project contributes to providing young people with equal opportunities and experience which
enable them to play a full part in all aspects of society and, in particular:
•empowering young people to promote, in their daily lives, cultural diversity as well as intercultural
dialogue and co-operation;
•preventing and counteracting all forms of racism and discrimination on any ground;
The goal of the project is to support young people and youth non-governmental organisations as
peace-builders and actors in conflict transformation and intercultural dialogue. In this way the daily
program will include several activities on conflict mediation, peace transformation and conflict
prevention. Through the project we want to invest in empowering young people to take an active role
in peace-building processes, but as well the valuable contribution youth work makes.
