"Young people in divided communities!” - Exploring issues and strategies for young people and youth organisations working in divided communities

Training Course

7-14 September 2010 | Struga, Republic of North Macedonia

There are many societies around Europe strongly divided on the basis of people's different backgrounds. This project will gather youth workers who face these issues in their countries or who are interested in developing knowledge about this subject.
Main theme of the project is role of youth/social workers in divided/segregated communities which are divided by ethnicity, religion and/or language etc. Objectives: - To explore and understand the effects of divided communities on young people - To explore the role of young people in breaking down barriers and institutionally established divisions - To compare experiences of youth organisations from different divided communities from across Europe - To increase capacities of local organisations to work in divided communities through the sharing of grass root methods, approaches and campaigns in tackling segregation - To directly develop participants' skills and competences that they need in order to work with the target groups in their local communities - To develop strategies for youth organisations from different divided communities to cooperate and work together
