Description

Many European societies struggle with different forms of radicalisation and increasing polarisation within their communities while adequate responses of civil society organisations particularly to counter radicalisation of young people are high on demand.
Examples for the existing threats to a tolerant and open Europe are anti-refugee protests and acts of terror in many European countries, the rise of nationalistic and xenophobic movements and political parties across Europe, and the on-going discrimination of minority groups (e.g. people with disabilities, sexual minorities, religious and ethnic minorities).
At this moment, in many communities the polarised parts of the population are in high need for reconciling their relationships, re-build confidence in the fundamental values of freedom and tolerance and need to re-establish trust in their fellow citizens. People-to-people approaches to reconciliation work offer plenty of approaches and concrete measures that can aid such processes at community level helping to prevent on-going radicalisation and segregation and foster community cohesion.
Against this background, the proposal aims at strengthening the competences of young leaders, youth workers and community workers in using people-to-people approaches to reconciliation for fostering community cohesion.

Objectives:
– To enhance the competences of young leaders, youth workers and community workers in
applying people-to-people approaches for fostering community cohesion through youth work
– To develop innovative grass-root youth initiatives strengthening community cohesion through
people-to-people dialogue processes
– To strengthen international partnerships and cooperation for youth peacebuilding

Themes addressed by the project:
– Youth peacebuilding
– Approaches to reconciliation work
– Community research
– Context and conflict analysis
– Project design and development
