Youth for Peace - 100 Years After World War I, 100 Ideas for Peace

The training activity took place
in Berlin, Germany
organised by French German Youth Organization "FGYO/DFJW/OFAJ"
14-18 November 2018

Aims & objectives

The objectives of the youth meeting were to facilitate intercultural dialogue as well as reflection on the events that occurred at the end of World War I 100 years ago from several perspectives and the impact these events had on the countries involved and their societies to date. The topics “the Transition from War to Peace” and “Peace in Europe” will be at the forefront of the meeting, but
the future of the European continent and the future relationship with the societies in its eastern
and southern neighborhood will also be a focus.

For this purpose, the DFJW and its partners offer
tools for peace education, memory work, and intercultural learning to participating young people
who will work together in workshops related to the overarching topic of peace in and around Europe in addition to peace education and creativity exercises.

At the end of the meeting, the participants will present their commonly developed ideas.

Summarizing the wishes and suggestions of these 500 young people for a peaceful future in and around Europe, these ideas will be presented to and discussed with high-ranking political representatives during a closing ceremony.
