Second, provide participants with the tools they need to work on the issue, through in-depth understanding of the logic of non-formal education, the importance of group dynamics, the diversity of leadership approaches, the exploration of mediation attitudes in intercultural work.

  • A local phase in which staff will test and adapt the created methods to excluded youth groups, intercultural communities with whom they work every day.
