The seminar will bring together a group of 12-15 active volunteers from Germany and the Balkans, in order to exchange ideas and experiences on the main topic as well as to further educate, train & empower them with methods how to develop and implement self-conceived awareness-raising and educational workshops on peace issues.
Besides that, the training will also provide the opportunity to exchange views on current developments in Germany and the Balkans and also have some fun together.
