The Partners

 

Une Terre Culturelle

“Une Terre Culturelle” is an association which was foundet in 2002 and that is responsible for developing mobility projects dedicated to the youth. That can be international youth exchanges (the majority of the participants are those having lesser opportunities, affiliated to partner social centers), all as training seminars destined to workers in the socio-cultural sector who work with young people. The organization pursue the idea of a long-lasting social development, going to facing different forms of racism and other prejudices while encouraging and convoying the encountering of diversities, all while allowing the youth to access international mobility or by training professionals to the creation of such projects.

Centre Français de Berlin

The Centre Français de Berlin organizes between 30 and 40 international youth exchanges per year. The main aim is to give the opportunity to the participants to meet young people from other countries, try a foreign language, go abroad – often for the first time, practice a sport or a cultural activity as part of a collective project, share a common passion… The vast majority of these projects have been carried out with young people with fewer opportunities, an audience that still has little access to international mobility programs. These are particularly young people living in a socially or family disadvantaged environment, young people in precarious situations, young people from immigrant backgrounds, young people who have dropped out of school and young people with disabilities. The CFB has developed its cooperation with the countries around the Mediterranean, in particular Algeria, Morocco and Turkey, from which many citizens of France and Germany come. These projects promote living together and mutual knowledge of cultures and histories of people who will build the future together.

Peace Dialogue

Peace Dialogue is a non-governmental, non-religious and non-political organization founded in 2009 in Armenia. The organisation brings together experienced human rights and peace activists from Partner Countries, Russia and Europe to encourage the active participation of civil society in democratisation and peaceful conflict resolution processes.

Currently, the permanent staff of Dialogue for Peace consists of 7 people.
