“Be part of the solution” was a conflict resolution training that was held in the small city of Braunlage in Central Germany from the 1-7th of December 2015. There were 45 youngsters and youth workers that came to learn how to build peace between each other, how to organize projects and activities that will bring the young people from the conflict countries together, to learn which tools are there to solve the problems between the youth. The participants were all from conflict countries: Israel/Palestine, Russia/Ukraine, Kosovo/Serbia/Croatia, Macedonia/Greece/Kosovo/Cyprus and the host Germany.
With the non-formal methods of education(simulations, working groups, task oriented workshops) they learned how to assess, evaluate, handle conflict situations between the youth. In the evenings there were cultural events and presentations so the young people got to know each others cultures and traditions, they cooked and presented their countries together.
