Call for pax: TC People beyond Borders

Training Course |17-26 February 2018 | Belgrade, Serbia

pbb

WHAT?

„people beyONd borders“ is a 10 days TC with the the objective of providing participants with theoretical and practical knowledge about current migrant and refugee situation in Europe, and providing them with tools for understanding this problem, for fighting discrimination and building their community into more nderstanding and inclusive one.

WHY?

From April 2015 until today over two million refugees and migrants have had their desperate journey to Europe, coming mostly from war-torn Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan. These people came running away from unbearable life conditions in their countries, searching for safety and future for themselves and their families. Their way to Europe is full of obstacles and difficulties and what they encounter once they finally reach Europe is devastating. They become subjects to discrimination, stereotypes, exclusion, and  unfortunately even violence. At the same time, media are either not reporting about it or they’re sending incorrect, exaggerated and even dangerous information. All this creates atmosphere of not understanding, discrimination and prejudice towards refugees. In order to make first steps towards change of this atmosphere, we would like to provide young people with knowledge and tools they can use to make the change.

HOW?

Through workshops, lectures, interactive presentations and discussions hosted by experts on the subject, participants will learn and practice different approaches to this situation which will hopefully inspire them to act and to share their knowledge in their own community.

WHO?

19 participants (age 18+) from 6 countries – Serbia, Kosovo, Montenegro, Italy, Slovenia and Portugal.

HOW TO APPLY?

By filling out the application form available HERE. Application deadline is November 27, 2017. Candidates will be informed about selection results on December 4, 2017.
