Description

YEU Estonia is looking for participants for a training course called “Europe in crisis: a call for dialogue. What can youth workers contribute?”.

This training course is organized for representatives of youth organizations from different European countries, to create a common strategy. As the crisis is a cross-border problem, it only makes sense to coordinate our actions in a European framework.

The main goal is to equip youth workers with competences to promote intercultural and interreligious dialogue in local and international activities, particularly focused on the European Refugee Crisis.

Objectives:

  • To exchange knowledge between representatives from different European youth organizations about the European Refugee Crisis: its origins and how way countries deal with it, including the public response;
  • To get a thorough understanding of concepts such as stereotypes, prejudices and discrimination;
  • To promote intercultural, interreligious dialogue and respect for human rights;
  • To develop detailed, realistic plans to promote intercultural and interreligious dialogue in local and international projects;
  • To promote the Erasmus Plus programme.
