Start date: Dec 1, 2009,

The project is designed as a six-days training course to be held in Bansko, Bulgaria and focusing on the issues of promotion of Intercultural Dialogue for Prevention of Youth Violent Extremism and Terrorism. The TC aims at bringing 24 young activists of various cultural and religious backgrounds from Bulgaria, Greece, Italy, Israel, Egypt and the Palestinian Authority of the West Bak and Gaza Strip in order to analyse the role of youth and youth organisations in the process of intercultural and interreligious dialogue for prevention of youth violent extremism and via interactive non-formal edcuational methods. The training course will seek to empower their knowledge and skills to design and implement Euro-Med youth project on inter-cultural dialogue. Our focus will be to look at the problems of youth violent extremism and terrorism from various perspectives and propose youth response strategies. The five main themes of the project are: prevention of youth violent extremism; the impact of terrorism and the "war of terror" and its direct consequences for young people; the role of youth in Euro-Mediterranean Partnership for peace, tolerance and understanding.; inter-cultural dialogue and respect for diversity and human rights as tools to preventf terrorism and violent extremism in Europe and Mediterranean; youth strategies to promote intercultural and inter-religious cooperation in going against prejudice and cultural/religious discrimination. Those working methods will contribute to the process of non-formal learning and to the promotion of social and personal development of participants involved in the project because they work as a moivating factor, develop the comunication skills, project writing skills, deepen the knowledge on youth Euro-Med cooperation and on the opportunités that the "Youth in Action" program offers to young people.
