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 a topic for formal and non-formal education in Georgia.
Our understanding of peace education:
Peace education aims to strengthen civil conflict management and equip young people with competencies to solve problems. In concrete, peace education means first informing about methods of non-violent conflict resolution, civil society engagement, preventing violence, strengthening human rights, promoting justice, mediation, and reconciliation work.
Activities of the project:
In the training of trainers, 17 youth workers and youth activists are trained as “Fairtogether trainers” by an 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 experiences about concepts of peace education and “peace schools”.
