European seminar for youth workers

La Fédération des Aroéven is hosting from the 5th to the 10th of October, in Paris, a European seminar titled « Educating Youth To Non-Violent Conflict Resolution ». 23 youth workers from Spain, Italy, Romania and France will discuss and exchange their methods, most of them developed in the formal education environment (like peer mediation), and work on creating common tools adapted to the non-formal sector (on a much shorter time frame : holidays, leisure time, ..).

At the end of the week, we expect the creation of a European network, willing to experiment more on the subject and influence national and European youth policies, as well as the writing of a European charter explaining the main principles of a European education to non-violent conflict resolution.

This project is supported by the French Erasmus + Youth agency.
