This training is designed for youth workers who would like to learn about ways and concepts to make young people participate as active citizens in the fight against rightwing propaganda, discrimination against Muslims and human rights violations against refugees and migrants. Through a holistic pedagogical process and peace-oriented methodology, the training aims at promoting peaceful dialogue and appreciation of diversity to combat anti-muslim tendencies and radicalization of young people in our societies. In this way we will foster the common values of freedom, tolerance and non-discrimination. The project also emphasizes the importance of including young people in this struggle and process and to make their voice being heard. Participants will learn about methods of peace education and non-violent conflict resolution in youth work with particular focus on dialogue between members of different religious or non-religious communities. They will have opportunities to develop similar strategies and activities for the youth work in their organizations/countries. They will learn and practice in the training programme and in leisure time how we can live peacefully together in a community. They will realize that each of us is part of a world community with different worldviews, religions, languages, stories and perceptions which can only survive on the path of peace and dialogue.
