Training Laboratory II: Designing Learning for Peace

Training Course

1-9 February 2022 | Yerevan, Armenia

The training of trainers aims strengthen the educational competences of youth educators in realising peace education activities that foster young peoples` resilience towards radicalisation and societal polarisation and foster their civic engagement.

Over the past years, Europe has seen a dramatic increase in populistic movements and narratives as well as societal polarisation. Those are often rooted in identity-based discourses and at many times linked to questions of identity, ethnicity and values.

In order to capitalise on the potential of youth work to counter populism we need to overcome the obstacles that youth workers and youth organisations have in addressing societal polarisation and radicalisation through their work with young people.

Therefore, the project aims to strengthen the capacities of organisations working in the youth field to respond by educational means to the growing societal polarisation and radicalisation alongside fundamental cleavages existing within the societies in the EU and its Eastern Partnership region.

Objectives of the project:

  • To strengthen the competences of youth educators in realising peace education activities that strengthen young peoples` resilience towards radicalisation and societal polarisation and foster their civic engagement
  • To develop innovative and needs-based educational activities and materials for peace education in the youth field, especially for addressing societal polarisation and radicalisation
  • To intensify transnational cooperation between the participants

The training programme is composed of the following activities:

  • Training of Trainers (01 – 09 February 2022, Yerevan, Armenia)

A training course for 24 youth workers and youth educators on designing and facilitating youth peace education courses on countering societal polarisation and populism.

  • Dissemination activities (February – April 2021)

After the training course, the project aims to publish online (on relevant youth platforms) educational resources, tools, and sessions based on the participant-led workshops in order to make the developed educational resources accessible for other youth workers.

The programme will address the following topics:

  • Concepts, principles and practices of youth empowerment for countering populism and radicalisation
  • Designing educational activities to counter radicalisation and populism
  • Training and facilitation of educational activities to counter radicalisation and populism
  • Networking between the participants
