Seed. Tree. Forest  -  Training courses on conflict transformation

Training Course

28 July - 3 August 2022 | Leposavic, KOSOVO * UN RESOLUTION

A 2-trainings project to learn the tools for conflict transformation. With a special focus on nonviolent tools, community building, and leadership. We will discover how to create more peaceful societies while proposing projects to change our communities

The Seed.Tree.Forest project was designed by a group of international youth workers and activists — members of the Youth Peace Ambassadors Network (YPAN) — working in the field of peacebuilding and Human Rights, especially in conflict-affected communities.

We want to change things, we want to be heard, and we want youth to be part of society's decisions. Especially, concerning conflicts in intercultural or local communities.

The aim of the project is to equip youth workers, activists, and trainers with competencies in nonviolent conflict transformation, nonviolent communication, and emotional literacy, in order to be leaders in building a sustainable culture of peace and respect for human rights by working at the grassroots level in their respective communities.


  • To provide participants with knowledge of concepts on peace, nonviolence, various forms of violence, conflict, peacebuilding, the culture of peace, and human rights.
  • To understand the importance of nonviolent conflict transformation and its links to the context of human rights.
  • To explore nonviolent conflict transformation in theory.
  • To develop the skills of participants in the field of emotional literacy as a tool of conflict transformation;
  • To provide participants with practical tools for peaceful and nonviolent conflict transformation, mediation, and emotional literacy in the context of youth work and youth engagement in conflict-stricken regions.
  • To map the realities in the participating countries on how conflict and violence affect local communities and practicing human rights;
  • To facilitate the process of planning at least 6 follow-up activities at the grassroots level leading to tackling local conflicts and aiming for its transformation

The activities (training) will take place in:
