Training a Bèlgica: ‘Building a culture of peace in diverse communities’

Busquem tres participants pel training “From Conflict to Collaboration: Building a Culture of Peace in Diverse Communities” que tindrà lloc a Herentals, Bèlgica, del 2 al 9 d’abril

Per participar dels trainings o formacions internacionals només cal que et facis sòcia de l’SCI Catalunya. Les despeses del transport i l’allotjament corren a càrrec del projecte.

At our training course, you will:
– get a better understanding of the concept of peace and its 3 levels – intrapersonal, interpersonal and with nature;
– enlarge your knowledge about building peace on a micro level in diverse groups;
– learn tools and mechanisms for sustaining peaceful coexistence of teams and communities;
– strengthen your nonviolent communication skills;
– develop confidence to apply conflict resolution instruments in daily work;
– improve skills for presentations, active listening, learning and collaboration in an international and multicultural environment;
– exchange ideas, good practices, inspirations, and share resources;
– plan a follow-up action to take place in your local community upon the course completion.

For whom?
Our ideal course participants are youth workers, peace activists, leaders and volunteers with an interest in the topic of everyday peacebuilding, especially in relation to working with diverse youth groups and with local communities (with people from different cultures, religions, and backgrounds). You should have some experience in working or volunteering with young people (aged 13-30).

What is most important for us is your willingness to become actors of change – multipliers in your local communities, and persons promoting and willing to live peace in your everyday routine (on a personal and professional level).

There are a few formal requirements you need to meet to join the training course:
1. You need to be a resident (not necessarily a national) of one of the 11 project countries (Albania, Belgium, Bulgaria, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Kosovo, North Macedonia, Poland, Serbia or Spain).
2. You must be able to communicate in English (the working language of the course).
3. You must be at least 18 years of age.
4. You need to attend the whole course duration (there is no possibility of making exceptions).
5. You commit yourself to organise a follow-up action in your local community/country upon the course completion (it can be e.g. a workshop, training, an activity for the local community, a peacebuilding activity with your youth group, etc.).
We explicitly encourage participants of all genders, abilities, and ethnic backgrounds to apply!
