During the project Training course „Youth Diplomats“ in the field of nonformal education I have learned many new ways of working in multicultural environment. This course taught me presenting myself and my opinions on topics in the way of respecting opinions of others, by which I have understood their way of thinking. We were solving different situations together in groups, when it was needed to find understanding and consensus for the successful resolution of these situations. The groups were changing many times, which helped me to know and understand every participant of the training. Before these practice, we had also funny activities, which were aimed on better knowing each other, improving our self-thinking and on getting our attention. Activities took place in training room but also at the beach, because the project was situated in a seaside city and the weather was more than good. Within the already mentioned activities, sometimes the tasks were also aimed at communication among the groups, when the task was to get a deal on solving in advance designated situations. At the end of the training, I received a Youthpass certificate for nonformal education and I also extended my friends circle across the Europe.


Summary what was training about: 

“Youth Diplomats” was implemented by Asociación PROJUVEN. The training course took place in Torremolinos (Málaga area), Spain and it involved 20 youth leaders and youth workers from 6 different countries (Estonia, Italy, Slovakia, Hungary, Bulgaria and Spain).

Violent conflicts cost lives, cause human rights abuses, displace people, disrupt livelihoods, set back economic development, exacerbate state fragility, weaken governance and undermine national and regional security. Peace building and conflict prevention are at the heart of European Union (EU) action. Having all this in mind, the desired impact is to foster youth diplomacy in Europe as tool of peacebuilding and conflict prevention. Consequently, the main aim of “Youth Diplomats” was to equip youth workers involved in international youth work to develop projects in the field of peace building through raising awareness about the necessity to follow a youth diplomacy approach.

The project used non formal learning methodology including methods such as: ice breakers, energizers, name games, reflection groups, working into intercultural subgroups, facilitated discussion, creative presentations, simulation, case study, and debates.

Participants were from Spain Spain, Italy Italy, Bulgaria Bulgaria, Estonia Estonia, Hungary Hungary and Slovakia Slovakia.
