This project aims to build the competences of youth workers, teachers, young people and community youth leaders in the Western Balkans, to address and work with reconciliation, countering hate speech and promoting peace building. Peace building cannot be reached if we do not all work together, therefore this project proposes a thorough approach in involving different stakeholders of the community and equipping them with skills and expertise how to fight these negative phenomena in their environment. The project seeks to establish a successful practice and with positive regards to establish a network of association in the WB ad EU who are committed into promoting reconciliation, sharing know how and fighting hate speech a different level. By the combination of the working packages and the educational approaches this proposal not only makes a direct change at personal level of the directly impacted participants, but also promotes a greater sense of community cohesiveness and brings the reconciliation discourse to grassroots level, making it more sensible for the communities and reaching out to the youngsters as direct change makers.
