Participa a ‘Methods Against War’, un training d’antimilitarisme i formes de protesta que serà de l’1 al 6 de Juny a Kosovo
No war anywhere!
While preparing this call for participants, we are horrified at the violence caused by war and militarization. The war in Ukraine shows us how technological progress also means more advanced possibilities of destruction and mass murder.
More than ever, we need to stand up against the atrocities, the reality and the threat of warfare, nuclear weapons, arms industries and military conscription. We need to stand in solidarity with those who are directly affected by the violence resulting from them. And we need to become many more who are dedicated to peace, disarmament and diplomacy!
About the project
Let’s exchange and develop methods for antimilitarism! This seminar works like a ‘tool fair’. This means that most of the seminar will be a methods exchange: participants bring methods for education and protest that they use in their antimilitarist activism and introduce them to the rest of the group. We then reflect on each method and try to find ways how we can use them in our work with volunteers and young people, be it in street protests, school workshops, trainings or volunteering camps.
Networking between antimilitarists around Europe and Southwest Asia. This seminar involves 29 participants, representing 21 organisations and living in 17 countries (Austria, Cyprus, Finland, France, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Jordan, Kosovo, North Macedonia, Poland, Russia, Serbia, Spain, Switzerland, UK). We want to use this space to bring together organisations from different antimilitarist and peace networks such as SCI, War Resisters International (WRI), International Fellowship of Reconciliation (IFOR) and others.
Organised by GAIA Kosovo and SCI Austria, ‘Methods Against War’ is part of a bigger collaboration between these two organisations. Later this year, we will organise the antimilitarist youth exchange “Not Your Soldier” in Austria.

- be 18 years old or older
- be able to work in English
- be interested in the the topics of the seminar and have a strong motivation to act as a multiplier able to attend for the full duration of the seminar
