The Council of Europe invites young people from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Kosovo(1), for participants coming from both the Albanian and Serbian ethnic communities, Israel and the Palestinian Authority, who are engaged in youth or community projects and motivated to implement youth initiatives for peace building within their own communities to apply for youth Peace Camp 2011.
Youth Peace Camp builds on the long standing work of the Directorate of Youth and Sport on human rights education, intercultural learning and conflict transformation for young people. This project provides a safe space for the young people from different conflict struck regions to learn together about conflict, to share their experiences in approaching them with other young people and to build their capacity to engage and/or develop future conflict transformation projects and initiatives. The Youth Peace Camp project together with the Youth Peace Ambassadors project also enables the Council of Europe’s youth sector to identify and document challenges faced by young people in conflict regions and to improve its ability to support youth projects in those regions.
The project combines a residential seminar with distance learning.
