CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS
YOUTH PEACE CAMP 2015

The call for participants for the Youth Peace Camp 2015 is launched. The Camp will be held from 17-24 September at the European Youth Centre in Budapest, Hungary

The Youth Peace Camp 2015 will invite young people between the age of 18 to 25 years from conflict effected communities from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Kosovo[1] (participants coming from both Albanian, Serbian and other backgrounds), Ukraine, Georgia (including Abkhazia and South Ossetia), The Russian Federation, especially young people directly affected by the crisis in Georgia, and Ukraine.

The camp aims to engage with young people and youth organizations from conflict affected regions, in dialogue and conflict transformation activities based on human rights education and intercultural learning during and after the camp. In a positive and safe atmosphere participants will share their personal experiences of conflict and violence and their coping strategies. They will develop their awareness and competences for living and learning together, by learn from existing youth work practices and experiences of young people working on dialogue and conflict transformation in their home communities.

WORLD FORUM FOR DEMOCRACY 2015
CALL FOR LAB SUBMISSIONS

WFD
The Strasbourg World Forum for Democracy is an annual gathering of leaders, opinion-makers, civil society activists, representatives of business, social innovators, academia, and media to debate key challenges for democracies worldwide and encourage democratic innovation.

The fourth edition of the World Forum for Democracy, to take place on 18-20 November 2015, will focus on the challenges democracies face in addressing security risks without jeopardising freedom and democratic stability.

For the first time, the Forum will not only showcase already existing initiatives, but also innovative, untested ideas to maintain and develop democracy’s basic principles in times of increasing security threats.

Interested organisations worldwide are invited to express their interest in presenting either an example/initiative or an idea to respond to security threats in a way that preserves the basic principles of democracy such as freedom of expression, public deliberation, and the privacy of citizens, by answering the questionnaire and sending it back by 15 May 2015.
