Ready to Mediate? Direction: Youth!
Running out of ideas on how to teach mediation in youth projects? We have a surprise for you! Together with our partners we have prepared for you a set of 10 new workshops in a new toolkit Ready to Mediate? Direction: Youth!
The workshops presented in this toolkit were inspired by the project ReMeDy – Ready to Mediate? Direction: Youth! training course for youth workers. The project was held in Rustavi, Georgia between 23rd November and 1st December 2019 and hosted participants from eleven countries: Poland, Georgia, Greece, Spain, Armenia, Croatia, Moldova, Ukraine, Italy, Russia and Azerbaijan. The aim of the project was to raise awareness among youth workers and youth groups about mediation and conflict transformation as a constructive and peaceful approach to managing conflicts and equip them with tools and methods that can be useful in a future conflict management process. During seven intensive days of training, youth workers learned the basics of effective communication, discovered the origins of conflict, studied different types of Alternative Dispute Resolution methods and established interests and needs of conflicted parties. They practised many different methods and strategies originating from mediation that can later support them in facilitating conflicts in youth groups.
We would like to share with you the best practices and examples of exercises that can be useful for implementing mediation in your daily life as a youth worker, teacher, trainer, facilitator, professional or beginner in this field. We hope this Toolkit will serve to do just that! Enjoy it and good luck!
