The Voice of Generation Y
Start date: May 18, 2015,

"The Voice of Generation Y"is a mobility project which intends to bring together youth workers and facilitators in order to combine new aspects in peace building and conflict management by using coaching techniques and Non-Violent Communication as a methodology. The title of the project metaphorically describes the generation which is always "loud" and open for the changes, which is freedom-seeker and which is not afraid to break the silence. The project represents the generation which is up to innovation and eager to be part of the experimental learning.
Therefore, the main objectives of the project are following: to develop new approaches and work-forms in conflict management and reconciliation; to combine different approaches in order to redesign understanding of peace while changing traditional way of thinking. At last but not least, we intend to invite the generation of change which will lead us to new path to Peace and empower new generation of facilitators and youth workers.
The core part of the project is that , we will have 3 main phases when it comes to implementation: Awareness, Fusion and Launch. The methodology and type of activities will be mainly related to non formal education, non-violent communication, coaching, self-expression, simulation games, peer to peer, learning by doing and experimental learning. The important part is that participants are creating the outcome by themselves through their participation and involvement. The result we aim to achieve is to put developed practice and work-forms into book which will be published and spread through project partners and other networks. Once the training is over, participants will implement activities in their own communities and share the information acquired during the course. The ultimate goal of the project is to challenge the traditional ways to conflict management while combining various approaches and bring together different stakeholders. In this way, we strongly believe that we can propose innovative work-forms for facilitators and fellow trainers which can be used in conflict- management and Reconciliation. We aspire to inspire others while writing new chapter in Peace-building.
