Building Bridges in Conflict Areas
Who leads this initiative of intercultural dialogue ?
SALTO-YOUTH (Support, Advanced Learning and Training Opportunities for Youth) works within the Erasmus+ Youth programme, the EU programme for education, training, youth and sport. As part of the European Commission's Training Strategy, SALTO-YOUTH provides non-formal learning resources for youth workers and youth leaders, and organises training and contact-making activities to support organisations and National Agencies (NAs) within the frame of the European Commission's Erasmus+ Youth programme and beyond.
What is this good practice about ?
Conflicts, clashes, fights, and misunderstandings all influence young people all around Europe. In this report, you are invited to an overview of the methods, theories, and tools for a better understanding of conflict resolution.
How does this initiative contribute to intercultural dialogue?
Throughout this booklet, SALTO-YOUTH raises the following questions: How to encourage young people and create a safe atmosphere for non-formal learning in places, such as suburbs of Paris or towns and villages of so-called disputed territories in South-East Europe (e.g. Kosovo) and in Eastern Europe and Caucasus (e.g. South Ossetia)? How to help young people overcome clashes and intolerance in migrant societies of Spain, Denmark, or Russia? What kind of activities should we undertake to let young people from different sides of conflict interact?
