The project will cover different types of conflicts and in different settings and consequently ways of transforming conflicts by non-violent actions. The emphasis is placed on foster a constructive debate on recent conflicts in Europe and cooperation in the youth field. This is done through applying nonviolent perspectives in peace building. Moreover, young leaders will discuss the significant role of youth participation in grassroots peace building initiatives. Trainers and invited experts will share practical skills and theoretical knowledge on the topics, through plenary sessions, discussions, workshops, creativity sessions, intercultural & interactive exercises and other non-formal educational methods. Most important throughout the TC is the input and experience are the and mutual sharing by all participants.

The background for the project are existing regional conflicts in Europe, Eastern Europe and Caucasus and the increasing tensions but also within many EU countries with regards to nationalism, racism, marginalization and other threats to democratic inclusivity and climates of participation.

Viewing the post-soviet scenario with chilled relationships and heated conflicts in Transnistria (Moldova), Crimea, (Ukraine) Abkhazia, Southern Ossetia (Georgia), Chechnya (Russian Federation), and Nagorny-Karabakh, conflict management and peace building are obviously among the most important issues also among young people. In Western Europe racism, xenophobia and racial discrimination are increasing not only in traditionally immigration friendly countries like Norway, Sweden and Greece — but also across Europe which is seen by the examples of national populism in Poland — tension between
Russian and Estonians in Estonia, and the so-called Muhammad caricatures in France.

All of the above examples illustrate the importance of youth work in the areas of peace building, conflict transformation, human rights education and anti-discrimination.

The project is implemented in the frame of ERASMUS + program, by Youth Association DRONI and Networkers SouthNorth! CDA is the partner organization from Moldova, for this project.
