Looking for Turkish participants for the youth exchange “RESOLVE: Peace Camps” in Nicosia/ Cyprus 31 October – 6 November 2021!

RESOLVE: Peace Camps 2020, provides an opportunity for young people to engage with decision-makers on a local, regional, national, EU and international-basis to share their thoughts, opinions and participate in democratic practices.

Non-formal educational techniques will be used in the exchange. Within the framework of the European Union Erasmus + Youth Programme, participants will meet young people from other countries and join some workshops on conflict resolution.
