Aims & objectives

The training aimed to equip youth workers with competences relevant for conflict management in a multicultural Europe. This was based on the observed tensions around the continent, some of which are contributing to hate speech and even violence. For the Narvik War & Peace Centre this is part of our core function.

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

The target group was youth workers from a selection of countries, from southern to northern Europe. We had participants from Norway, Portugal, Slovenia, Spain, Italy, Wales, Czech Republic, Finland, Ireland, Estonia and Sweden.
The trainers team was from Norway and Portugal.

Training methods used & main activities

The training was largely built around the simulation exercise "Mission Z: One last chance", which is a game-based exercise developed as part of a KA2-project (and highlighted as a 'Success Story'). Leading up to the exercise, we ran a number of brainstorming activities to establish definitions, and provide some input relevant for the training. In subsequent sessions of the programme we had, among other things, more exercises to process the learning points of the simulation - some of which were gamified.

Outcomes of the activity

The written feedback we collected after the training provided very positive reviews. Participants highlighted the mix of methods and the content as their best experience.

Your tasks and responsibilities within the team

I was one of two primary trainers of the project. I facilitated a number of the sessions, including Mission Z. I was also involved in writing the project application, and the report.

I worked on this training for 5 days as a full time trainer.
