Connectors – Training Course On Alternative Conflict Resolution

We at YES were happy for a new chance to cooperate with YPIDA (Youth Participation and Intercultural Dialogue Association) Berlin and participate in CONNECTORS – a training course on alternative conflict resolution.

The training course took place during June 29 – July 7, 2017 period in three different locations – Hebron, Bethlehem and Jerusalem, and was attended by participants coming from 11 different countries.
All 35 participants of the training course were involved in simulation game, where they had to be divided into four imaginary groups or continents, which were conflicting with each other and all four wishing to find alternative solutions to resolve the existing conflicts. The game helped the participants to start thinking out of box and look for more and more options to resolve conflicts – be it personal or between countries or continents. The game ended when the “continents” compromised on sharing natural resources.

The project participants were given a chance not only to obtain knowledge, but also to visit three very old and historically significant cities. It was truly an eye opening project and the trip for everyone, who has never been in this part of the world before.

Another major outcome of the project was the friendship that started between the participants and that led to developing more new projects for future.

The project was funded by EU Erasmus Plus – Mobility of Youth Worker.
