Strasbourg, France played host to a crucial preparatory meeting organized by YMCA Europe Roots for Peace during July 12-15. The meeting took place in the European Youth Center and served as a stepping stone for the upcoming “Give Peace a Chance” study session. This collaborative project is being implemented in partnership with the Council of Europe, highlighting the collective effort to promote peace and harmony in Europe.
The primary objective of the study session is to share the knowledge and expertise of YMCA Europe Roots for Peace through the implementation of the “Do No Harm” method.
The preparatory meeting brought together the dedicated team from YMCA Europe, who worked diligently to create a comprehensive agenda and refine the tools and details of the project. This planning ensures that the study session will effectively deliver its core message and provide participants with a rich learning experience.
Scheduled to take place in October, the study session in Strasbourg will gather 35 participants from 16 European countries. These young individuals, hailing from diverse backgrounds and cultures, will come together to explore the various dimensions of peacebuilding and share their own experiences and perspectives. The session promises to be a transformative journey, enabling participants to develop essential skills, broaden their horizons, and foster lasting connections with like-minded peers.
The collaboration between YMCA Europe Roots for Peace and the Council of Europe exemplifies the power of partnerships in driving transformative initiatives. By combining resources, expertise, and networks, these organizations aim to amplify their impact and create a more peaceful and inclusive Europe.
