Training course in Vienna :Volunteers as Peace Agents

Training course in Vienna : 25-29 may 2019


Background of the project

Grenzenlos is running international projects and exchanges since nearly 70 years. In the last years we dedicated our trainings to the topics of civil courage and human rights. This training course is built up on the content developed in the first seminar and focusing on how voluntary organizations can support their volunteers to become peace messengers and agents for peace. Within the training course we would like to extend the exchange and understanding of peace-work and include voluntary organizations from partner and MEDA countries. The training is part of a bigger strategy on promoting peace and the contribution of volunteering to it.

Aims and Objectives

To promote peace and fight against hate speeches

To promote peace work within international volunteering projects

To get inspired on how we can keep a peaceful society:

  • What can voluntary organisations and youth workers do?           
  • How can volunteers become or remain peace messengers?
