Youth Peace Conference
Start date: 01 Aug 2016, End date: 31 Dec 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

This project is a multilateral youth exchange between some European countries, Palestine, Egypt and Lebanons with young people from various islands in the Canary Islands during the month of September 2016 on the island of Gran Canaria. The penultimate day of activities coincide with the World Day of Peace.Why this title? Project name is taken from the program of activities and the sense of it: Living in different places, countries in Europe and Middle East or Africa, but with common problems caused by international conflicts and the solutions to them, especially around the need to create peace processes to avoid poverty, immigration and social exclusion. We will use creative methods, but we will have to explore deeper into the subject.We will use games that will help us to reflect, in addition to obtaining new knowledge via the "learning by doing". Let's go to some different places, seminars, debates. Movies and then we will see what we have seen and heard. Some activities will make with the help of experts. This exchange is a set of group activities tolerant to differences in our continent and its surroundings and in which the common thread is the understanding of conflict and threat to peace in which young people can and should say something. This project navigates a different approach to social realities in the young life with a European perspective.We will implement activities in different scenarios as part of a non-formal methodology, a common element to introduce the message of peace building and intercultural dialogue between young people from the EU and that we are not causing the development of solidarity and understanding common in a healthy and safe environment for participants.The activities will last for one week. Each country will have 5 + 1 persons, and does not include a VPP. The methods will be very active and participative, detailed in the attached Annex.
