Background of the project
Grenzenlos is organising international projects and intercultural exchanges for more than 70 years. In the last years we dedicated our trainings to the topics of civil courage, human rights, peace-work and crisis management. In a time where extremisms worldwide are getting stronger, we want to provide a training to work on methods on how to prevent and fight against extremisms. As well, on how to provide better tools for volunteers to be used whenever they are confronted with extremism.
We believe the international volunteering services activities are a powerful tool that can be used to bring better understanding among people. We see our work as a way to promote dialogue and understanding.
In this training setting, we want to focus on the areas of dealing with conflicts related to extremist. In different fictional but realistic scenarios, the participants will develop their skills and learn from each other about the importance of preventing and fighting against extremism.
In this training we work with a non-formal learning approach. We want to enable personal and social development for all participants through different interactive methods. The training consists of a mix of theoretical input, interactive and participatory methods, as well as group work.
