From 11th to 18th August, with the support of the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union, we participated in the training “Community Conflict Transformation Through Youth Work” in Vienna, Austria, together with 30 other youth workers from Austria, Croatia, France, Greece, Italy, Spain and Poland.
* The aim of the training was to increase the capacity of youth workers to use conflict transformation tools and strategies to turn youth social problems into positive impacts.
