The project “One last chance” consists of one training course geared towards equipping the participating youth workers and youth leaders with the kinds of values and attitudes we believe are pertinent to construct a new and improved multicultural Europe, as well as key skills and competences, as well as concrete exercises the participants can utilize in their local realities to contribute to more knowledgeable, understanding and equitable local communities, in facing this new Europe. Ha Moment in cooperation with Narviksenteret, from Norway, will host and facilitate this training.
This project has been developed upon the ending of the KA 2 Strategic Partnership “Borderline Boardgames” which developed, among other outcomes, the educational board game “Mission Z” which presents an effective way of experiencing and reflecting on conflict and conflict management. This said board game is the base of this project, as we will lean quite heavily upon its potential to give a powerful simulation of a number of aspects surrounding the origins of conflict and how to tackle it – including communication, intercultural, mutual respect, empathy, diplomacy, mediation, and more.
The objectives of the project are:
- Improve youth workers’ skills with practical tools and experiential non-formal activities on conflict, conflict management, prejudice and migration issues;
- Improve youth work quality and enhance the role of youth workers and NGOs as social facilitators spreading European values and a culture of peace;
- Develop the competence of empathy as a skill linked to positive conflict management;
- Enhance the participants’ attitude in transforming conflict situations into learning opportunities;
- Share among youth workers and partners common concerns about issues of conflict, conflict management, migration and prejudice, exchange good practices and tools;
- Enhance international cooperation, including trust between participants and organisations;
- Promote heightened recognition of the educational value of NFE activities for building a more aware and understanding Europe.
