First training „YOUr Past, Present, Future“ in Sombor - Youth for Peace

YOUr Past - Present - Future je projekat Youth for Peace organizacije u partnerstvu sa Somborskim Edukativnim Boom-om iz Srbije i organizacijom MAYAA iz Crne Gore, a podržan od strane Regional Youth Cooperation Office (RYCO).

Projekt okuplja 15 studenata iz BiH, Srbije i Crne Gore, te kroz niz treninga ih educira o temama vezanim za identitete, narative, sukob i konstruktivnu transformaciju sukoba, sve u cilju afirmativnog suočavanja sa prošlosti, dijaloga i izgradnje mira. Projekt će također okupljati srednjoškolce, te kroz nacionalne seminare i završnu konferenciju u Sarajevu podizati svijest o važnosti izgradnje mira i njihove uloge i odgovornosti u tim procesima.

Cilj projekta je motivirati mlade za iskorače iz društveno nametnutog konformizma i iracionalnog straha od drugačijih, osposobiti ih da analiziraju prošlost i njezine posljedice danas, pristupe narativima i sveprisutnom govoru mržnje na analitički način, te da postanu odvažni akteri u civilnom društvu, proaktivno rade na istinskom dijalogu i izgradnji mira.

Participants learned and discussed about the topic of identity, learning about themselves and others, as well as the way others see them, and how certain characteristics can lead to social generalization. Also, an important topic of stereotype, prejudice and discrimination, and hate speech has been processed. Through discussion, interactive learning and examples from everyday life, participants gained new knowledge related to these topics or expanded the existing ones. This module represents the first dice of a complex mosaic of education and training of young people in order to develop their capacities for active participation in society, the fight against ignorance and conformism, and active commitment to building a peace and healthier society in BiH, Serbia and Montenegro.

The first module of training within the project "YOUr Past, Present, Future" was led by youth workers Milica Lugumerski and Ivana Barac. In the following period, this group of young people also expect trainings in Podgorica and Sarajevo, and then they are expected to multiply their knowledge and experience in working with young people in their surroundings.
