Young Activists for Peace and “World We Want”
Training, Evaluation and Planning Seminar for Youth Workers in Berlin from 30.10 to 05.11 2018


Since 2015 ICJA offers trainings and youth exchanges in the frame of a concept which we call “Young Activists for Peace”. In four years over 300 participants came from different corners of the European Union, Eastern Europe and Caucasus, as well as from the Mediterranean Region.


The 4th “Young Activists for Peace” projects offered a wide range of activities, topics and pedagogical concepts in the fields of peace education, training for democracy, empowerment of youngsters with fewer opportunities, etc.


We do this because we believe in the impact of this work both on young participants, and, in the long term, on the creation of more democratic and peaceful societies, as well.


We believe that after a series of 4 projects it is time to evaluate the work and impact of our activities together with our dear partner organizations, and to jointly analyze the current challenges and work on projects and concepts to step up our activities, improve quality, and raise the impact and visibility of our work.


The Training, Evaluation and Planning Seminar will provide sessions and opportunities to:
- learn and reflect on the concept of “Young Activists for Peace”, as well as upon other peace and democracy oriented concepts and methods;
- assess the impact of such activities
- learn and reflect on Sustainable Development Goals and on the contribution that their achievement could make to lasting peace at global level.
- discuss what is needed, so that more young people will stand up against racism and intolerance and for the utopia of a better world based on peaceful dialogue.
- learn about methods and get know-how for peace oriented youth work activities
- work in a structured way on approaches and ideas for future Youth exchanges and educational activities which foster democratic values and active citizenship of young people.
