Organisational development goals set up by the outcomes of researches: We are planning 9 days online youth work activities based on the needs of our target groups through interethnic conflict resolution and mediation in order to prevent inter-ethnic conflict among young people with different cultural background and their radicalization.

We will organize 9 day youth online course in order to involve young people into intercultural teamwork and prevent radicalization and inter-ethnic conflict among young people with different cultural background in the following online camp.

In 9 days online event, we will define what inter-ethnic conflict is, how it happens and what are its causes, then to summarize and interpret roles, conflict styles and conflict approaches in inter-ethnic conflicts and conflicts in general.

As mediators, we will recognize own stereotypes and prejudices, and detect and identify personal conflict styles and illustrate skills of solving conflict using personal communication skills. We will demonstrate effective way of communicating that resolves conflict and practice different conflict resolution skill. We will gain experiences on research as a tool how it can help to analyze needs, expectations and possibilities of young people on participation within their local community in order to prevent any type of conflict situation among culturally di- verse young people. We will gain information and knowledge of Erasmus+ programme with special focus on international youth exchanges and Youthpass.
