In 2021 we started together with our partner Association Atinati the initiative Global Peace Room. The Global Peace Rooms support peace-education, intercultural exchange and global learning in the South Caucasus Region.
Act for transformation – Caucasus Office opened one Global Peace Room in Tbilisi. Our partner NGO Association Atinati opened in Zudgdidi a second Global Peace Room funded by “Lachen helfen e.V.”.
Our understanding of global learning:
We want to equip children and young people with the necessary skills to reflect on their own role in the global society, to understand complex global developments and to develop new ways of thinking and acting from them. Global learning is a concept of political education that aims at a good life for all people worldwide.
Global learning understands the people of this earth as a global society. It has a clear value orientation in the sense of global social justice, equality and a sustainable transformation.
The topics of global learning are connected to the Sustainable Development Goals developed by United Nations: https://sdgs.un.org/goals
The interactions and cultural exchange between different cultures and communities are for us a central aspect of Global Learning.
Idea of the Global Peace Room:
The Global Peace Room is a save space were people from different countries, regions, social and cultural backgrounds come together, get to know each other, share their perspectives and thus develop mutual understanding and a more peaceful living together.
Children, youth, youth workers and teachers can learn and share ideas about topics connected to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) by the United Nations, for instance peaceful living together, non-violence conflict resolution, peace activism, human rights, gender equality and environment protection.

1). „Fairtogether in Georgia: მშვიდობიანი თანამშრომლობისთვის”
In 2021 Act for transformation together with the partners Association Atinati and act for transformation – Caucasus Office implement the project "Fairtogether in Georgia: მშვიდობიანი თანამშრომლობისთვის” in Zugdidi municipality.
Our joint goal is to contribute to violence prevention and peace education in schools and youth clubs in Zugdidi municipality as well as to promote dialogue between different countries and regions. Together with our active partners we promote peace-education as topic for formal and non-formal education in Georgia.
Our understanding of peace-education:
Peace education aims to strengthen civil conflict management and to equip young people with competencies to solve problems. In concrete, peace education means first informing about methods of non-violent conflict resolution, about civil society engagement, about preventing violence, about strengthening human rights, about promoting justice, about mediation and reconciliation work.
Activities of the project:
In a training of trainers 17 youth workers and youth activists are trained as “Fairtogether trainers” by international trainer team from Ukraine, Germany and Georgia. The new trainers offer Workshops in partner schools in Zugdidi municipality and a Fairtogether Summer Camp for youth. Together with Radio Atinati youth create 6 radio programs, which are broadcasted in Samegrelo and Abkhazia region. In a joint online conference Trainers, NGOs from Germany, Georgia and Ukraine and representatives of the educational ministries share experience about concepts of peace-education and “peace schools”.
The project is funded by German Federal Foreign Office in the framework of the program "Expanding Cooperation with Civil Society in the Eastern Partnership Countries and Russia" and co – financed by Quäker-Hilfe e.V.
