We chose to dedicate our Event for members to the issue of extremism among young people because it is a growing concern of youth workers from our network, and way beyond. Initiatives start to emerge at the policy and institutional level but there's still a lot to be done in the educational field, and we believe peer education can support different approaches in the sector of education for tackling these issues.
European Peer Training Organisation - EPTO
EPTO provides a space where young people can be learners and educators, sharing with their peers their competencies in a spirit of collaboration.
In EPTO, individual knowledge becomes collective knowledge.
EPTO is partnering with the PeaceJam Foundation to implement their award-winning peace education programme in Belgium!
Unleashing the potential of young people to create a world for everyone
Following the success of the 1st PeaceJam Youth Conference in Belgium, we are thrilled to announce that EPTO is in charge of implementing the PeaceJam peace education programme in Belgium!
According to the website « Empower yourself with color psychology », « ORANGE is the color of adventure and social communication. The color psychology of orange is optimistic and uplifting, rejuvenating our spirit. In fact orange is so optimistic and uplifting that we should all find ways to use it in our everyday life, even if it is just an orange colored pen that we use. Orange brings spontaneity and a positive outlook on life and is a great color to use during tough economic times, keeping us motivated and helping us to look on the bright side of life ».
