During the training, the participants will get to know best practices of campaigns and street actions around peace and non-violence, both from within their organisations and networks, from historic figures such as Bertha von Suttner and from more recent developments in areas such as guerilla communication and online campaigning. They will get the tools and knowledge to organize these themselves, to apply them to their own local contexts and to effectively reach and involve youth in these projects.
A big part of the project will be the exchange between different networks working towards a culture of peace and non-violence. The participating organisations are connected to networks such as SCI, War Resisters International, IFOR, Alliance, ICYE and CCIVS. Apart from the campaigns and street actions to be implemented after the training, the strongest outcome will be a toolkit targeted towards gathering tools, best practices and knowledge around campaigns and street actions for youth workers and peace activists. A street action around a current relevant topic concerning peace and non-violence is planned as part of the project in Vienna. The toolkit and the project as a whole try to strengthen the notion that peace activism is young, creative, professional, cool, relevant and interesting to look at.
