Training course aims to give youth workers skills and competences regarding the topic of intercultural dialogue by understanding of existing problems and its causes, exploring existing lines of tensions/conflicts in Europe and neighboring countries

General Description

Processes of the globalization, social-economic conditions in neighboring countries, and conflicts in developing countries force thousands of people to migrate in Europe for sake of finding shelter and better living conditions there.

It caused mixing of various people and nationalities, coexistence of people with different backgrounds; however, this process also led to conflicts among those groups, judging people by their backgrounds, judgment based mainly on stereotypes and prejudices. All these reasons interrupt process of developing civil societies within states.

Each conflict situation can be multiplied in future and lead us to dangerous situations in various countries. Thus, the main aim of the training course is to increase level of awareness of youth workers, to give useful tools, teach new methodologies and activities that will help them to make their local realities better, to lead their societies change towards peaceful civil society.

Nowadays we often face discrimination based on religion, race, nationality etc. Europe needs more cohesive and inclusive societies, to promote common European values, foster social integration, enhance intercultural understanding and a sense of belonging to a community and to prevent violent radicalization. Our Erasmus+ training course is an effective instrument to promote the inclusion of people with disadvantaged backgrounds, including newly arrived migrants.

For above-mentioned reasons, main aims of the project are to build civil societies with tolerance, to create a space where people with different backgrounds will live peacefully. Thus, this investment in knowledge, skills and competences will benefit individuals, institutions, organizations and society as a whole by contributing to growth and ensuring equity, prosperity and social inclusion in Europe and beyond.
