Europeans for Peace
September 04th, 2014
News from Berlin- The Europeans for Peace initiative is a programme that aims to promote youth projects between Germany and South, Eastern and Central European countries, as well as Israel. This project is a unique opportunity for the younger generation to build a better understanding of each other’s history and backgrounds.
The project itself focuses on discrimination and persecution. It aims to create common understanding in the context of history and human rights.
The objective of the project is to connect schools and youth groups with both educational and non-educational institutions, create partnerships and apply for funding opportunities under the joint project initiative. The 2015/2016 topic will be: “Watch out: Discrimination! Projects on exclusion then – and now”. The participants must fulfil certain criteria, which includes among other things: be of age from 12 to 21, and build a bi-national or tri-national project (one partner from Germany and at least one from another participating country*).
The Foundation Erinnerung, Verantwortung und Zukunft (Remembrance, Responsibility and Future) is the organiser of the initiative. Created in August 2000, it concerns itself with preserving the memory of the victims of the Second World War; initiatives; supports social dialogue, and works for understanding and reconciliation through publications, research and educational activities.
