Training Course – We BELIEVE in Unity Together!

We BELIEVE in Unity Together! is a training course for youth leaders and youth workers and it aimed to promote tolerance and mutual understanding among youth of different communities and religions and was held in Prishtina (Kosovo) from 12-19 May 2014. With this project we looked forward to shed light on the growing importance of dialogue and mutual understanding of persons living together in a multi-religious community. The project took place in Pristina, Kosovo, and foresee 7 days of activities, excluding the travel days. 30 participants from 10 different countries were involved and a mixture of youth leaders/youth workers coming from countries of the European Union and the South East Europe Region participated. This diversity of backgrounds enhanced the mixture of ideas and experiences in a multi-cultural/multi-religious environment, for a better learning process of both the participants as well as the trainers. This course gave to participants the opportunity to improve and increase their understanding and knowledge of the diversity of religions and aimed to increase their problem – solving skills on the basis of non-formal, equality and human rights education, when confronted with prejudices, stereotypes and racism in the multi-religious community we live in. Non formal education methods like as team building activities, workshops, role playing, group discussions, brainstorming, study visits were used. Our goal through this project was also to create a real cooperation among participants, in order to build future projects. Youth 4 Society organisation was happy to be represented in this activity with 3 participants, which were satisfied with the outcomes of the training. As well Youth 4 Society put new contacts for future cooperation.
