The project Yes THEY CARE! will involve more than 30 participants, young people, youth workers and facilitators, who will meet in Nitra, Slovakia. The mobility will create space where they through non-formal education can work together on the topics such as conflict management and peace building. Project point out on generation Y, which is considered as a very strong, ambitious, keen on knowledge generation which is open to changes, generation which like to lead an want to be heard. Those people are willing to be part of experiments like to prepare innovative alternatives and being part of groups where non-formal education tools are used. Aim of this project is to work on different approaches in conflict management, understanding and raise an issue of harmony and peace. Participants will develop ways of work-forms in conflict management. The mobility will create a space for open-mind communication and changes in traditional thinking, all by attendance of generation Y. Methodology of the project is based on non-formal education techniques, experimental learning, coaching and non-violent communication games, learning by doing, simulations and self-expression.
