Whom can we trust? Capacity building & democratic challenges in European & Arab societies.

Training Course

26 September - 6 October 2019 | Bad Bevensen & Berlin, Germany

Whom can we trust when we work for strengthening democracy? What are the adequate measures for each country involved in this project? Young activists of civil society (from Germany, Poland, Lithuania, Egypt, Tunisia & Jordan) will share their experiences.

Whom can we trust when we work for strengthening democracy? Which impact of the past do we detect? Who is with us and who is against us? How do we counter political and religious extremism? How can we strengthen civil society? And what are the adequate measures for each country involved in this project? Young activists of civil society (from Germany, Poland and Lithuania, from Egypt, Tunisia and Jordan) will share their experiences and find answers to those questions.

Aims and Guiding Topics:

1. Democratic changes: Which paths to democracy did we take in each country? Which choices did we make and where are we at now? Participants will give accounts and updates on political development and personal involvement.

2. Call for changes: Where are the challenges and threats that call for change? How can we counter religious and political extremism? We will use simulation games and first-hand reports to identify the issues and find solutions. Activists will share their concepts and practical methods.

3. Diversity and dialogue: How do we handle diversity in our societies? What do we need to establish true and serious dialogue? We will visit NGOs, share best practice and use approaches on diversity as an indicator on democracy.

4. Coherence and cooperation: How can we establish structures that keep society together? How can we strengthen democracy in follow-up activities back home? This is what the project aims at: It will inspire participants to make use of their skills, to build up capacities, take over responsibility and to continue their engagement in civil society.
