The project Yes THEY CARE! involved more than 30 participants, young people, youth workers and facilitators. They met in Nitra, Slovakia from the 25th of march until the the 1st of April to create a space where they can work together on the topics such as conflict management and peace building through non-formal education. The project will have three Phases: Awareness, Fusion and Launch.
The project focused on generation Y, which is considered as a very strong, ambitious, keen-on-knowledge generation. A generation that is open to changes, that likes to lead and wants to be heard. Those people are willing to be part of experiments such as preparing innovative alternatives and being part of groups where non-formal education tools are used as experimental learning, coaching and non-violent communication games, learning by doing, simulations and self-expression. The aim of this project is to work on different approaches in conflict management, understanding and raise an issue of harmony and peace. The mobility will create a space for open-mind communication and changes in traditional thinking.
The project's activities will lead to the publication of educational material which can be used also by other people within the partners NGOs' or other networks.
