Youth Peace Camp
Youth Peace Camp allows young people and youth organisations from conflict stricken regions to engage in dialogue and conflict transformation activities based on human rights education and intercultural learning. Through Youth Peace Camp these young people gain a positive experience in living and learning together.
The Youth Peace Camps were initiated by the Council of Europe in 2004. In the past years the peace camp project brought together young people (of ages 18-25) from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia (including Abkhazia and South Ossetia), Israel, Kosovo, the Palestinian Authority, the Russian Federation and Serbia. During the one week Youth Peace Camp, the participants followed an experiential learning process and acquired competences in the fields of intercultural learning, dialogue and conflict transformation within a human rights framework. The Youth Peace Camp has been made possible each year with the support of Europa Park in Rust, Germany, which also previously hosted the activity. Since 2011 the camp is held at the European Youth Centre’s.
The Youth Peace Camp project and the Youth Peace Ambassadors project both promote and support the role of young people in peace-building activities that contribute to living together in dignity and dialogue and brings in the perspective that youth work and youth policy can bring to peace-building processes in Europe, especially through its preventive and educational nature.
