EMPOWER FOR BETTER COMMUNITY DEVELOPEMENT

Training Course

5-13 November 2021 | Bansko, Bulgaria

The project will cover different types of conflicts and in different settings and consequently ways of transforming conflicts by non-violent actions.

The need of the project comes from the existing growing tension and violence among smaller ethnic/migrant groups and the increasing tensions within many EU countries in regard to nationalism and racism. After extensive analyses on the situations in all the partner countries and the long-term experience of our partners in the field, together we have developed the concept of the current project proposal. Chauvinism, racism and discrimination, combined with violence and threatening acts against minorities raises the need to seek effective strategies to address the problems of conflict, radicalization and violence among young people. With the ongoing refugee crisis in Europe, the level of violence is increasing among all countries.. In addition to that we have the so called frozen conflicts on some spots in Europe such as Turkey-Cyprus, Serbia-Kosovo-spots that hold the potential to cause clashes ad conflict at any time. The project will cover different types of conflicts and in different settings and consequently ways of transforming conflicts by non-violent actions.

The objectives of the Training Course are:

• To develop a set of knowledge, skills and competences of youth workers in conflict transformation and peace-building;

• To equip youth workers with an understanding of non-violence concepts and human rights education that can be applied to their local communities to prevent conflicts and violent radicalization among local youths;

• To motivate participants to advocate for non-violent actions on the local, national and international levels, and for them to act as multipliers and ambassadors of peace;

• To encourage cooperation between the organizations for further actions on youth peacebuilding initiatives;

• To promote the European values of intercultural dialogues, peace, anti-discrimination, diversity, respect of human rights, tolerance and solidarity.

ProVision International (Youth NGO)

Provision International is a youth and civil society organization, which connects active adventurous people together. We work mainly with young people, but also with youth workers, trainers and teachers and organizations active in non-formal education field and life long learning. Our members have participated and organized different youth exchanges, seminars and training courses concerning equality, media impact, innovation, fight against racism & xenophobia, human rights, mobility and migration, HIV prevention, environment protection and other issues. Our volunteers gather every month to take up new ideas and think how to put them into practice. We sincerely believe that young people today can make a difference and we all work for this purpose.

First activities of the organization date back to the year 2010 when group of active young people got together to organize a youth exchange. After that there have been many local regional activities concerning integration, adventure tourism and different interest specific activities
.
Members of the organization meet regularly to put their ideas into practice and develop new projects and activities. All activities are organized by volunteers and voluntarily. There are members all over Estonia in the organization and there are even regional grouping in 5 counties. The main age group of members is from 16 to 35 + people working with young people (without age limit). Many members come from rural/remote areas, so Provision International has also young people with fewer opportunities involved in the organization.
