BEST Institute for vocational training and personal training GmbH



In this project we aim to increase the understanding of different ways that principles of peace education can be best adapted to principles of non-formal learning, in order to support youth workers in engaging with it. We want to support youth workers to recognize their important role as European peace educators and provide them with innovative tools to implement a peace education approach in their work with young people in non-formal learning environments.

We organize dialogue workshops for youth workers collecting good practices and key challenges in combining peace education and youth work. Using the workshops as basis, we develop an educational material package with the title “Youth Worker as a Peace Educator”. This material will support any youth work organization or youth worker to adopt this approach to their regular work in practice. All produced material will be disseminated through our partner network across Europe.
