Peers for peace: we're halfway there!

A new generation of peer trainers is starting its journey! From June 6th to 11th, the first training of the “Peers for peace” project took place in Arad, Romania, with the great support of our member organisation Ofensiva Tinerilor and the pedagogical expertise of CEJI - A Jewish Contrbution To An Inclusive Europe. This 6-day awareness peer training tackling religious diversity, anti-discrimination and the prevention of extremism gathered 27 participants from Belgium, Croatia, Estonia, Macedonia, Hungary, Italy, Romania, Slovenia, Spain and Turkey, who now have a few months to practice what they’ve learned through local workshops in order to attend the second mobility of this project – The "Train the Trainer" course that will take place between the 12th and 19th of November 2017 in Struga, Macedonia. We take this opportunity to thank all the facilitators, participants and partner organisations for their involvement and dedication – with a special mention to Ofensiva Tinerilor for creating such a unique educational environment in a beautiful Romanian natural park!
