The training activity took place

Aims & objectives

This project aimed to implement an educational tool among European social workers to increase the positive resolution of conflicts through understanding cultural differences, active listening, and negotiation skills.

The specific goals of the project were:

- to analyze the phenomenon of conflict management at any level: personal and/or professional, local, national and international;
- to lay the foundation for better intervention in conflicts on local and international levels;
- to help out for a better understanding of the educational consequences of these interventions;
- to provide educational insights into practical tools, reflections on proactive methods, and exchange of good practices with Non-formal education methods;
- to increase international cooperation: networking and advocating, to create the best condition for mutual understanding;
- to test an educational tool to analyze the conflict situation and improve the soft skills needed during the conflict situation.

Target group & international/intercultural composition of the group & team

The target group of the activity included 30 youth workers, teachers, trainers, and educators aged 25 and over, belonging to 7 European organizations. They were individuals actively involved in working with young people between the ages of 13 and 30 in various contexts such as schools, NGOs, associations, and youth centers.

The activity involved participants from the following countries: Poland, Spain, Cyprus, Austria, Lithuania, and Hungary. These participants represented their respective countries and organizations in the project.
