From Dreams To Actions:
together for a peaceful future
April - December 2021
“From dreams to actions” is a project that contributes to bringing peace from the abstract level to everyday life. It focuses on promoting the values of peace and non-violence by using non-formal education and by creating a safe and motivating environment. The project aims to encourage active participation and civic engagement by empowering volunteers and supporting them in being active citizens.
“From Dreams to Actions: together for a peaceful future” consist of three elements: peace cards, a training course and follow up actions.
The 12 organisations involved are located in Albania, Armenia, Bulgaria, Finland, Germany, Kosovo, Moldova, Poland, Serbia, Spain, Switzerland and Belgium.
From April 2021
We want to create a set of 50 cards with quotes that spark discussion on peace, non-violence and volunteering/activism for peace. We invite you to share with us your favourite peace quotes by taking part in this survey.
16 September – 22 September 2021
The training course will be held in Belgium with the participation of 35 volunteers and youth workers. It will focus on:
- expanding the knowledge on peace;
- parallel sessions related to different ways of working for peace;
- street action in Antwerp during the International Day of Peace;
- preparation for the follow-up actions.
From October 2021
To share their knowledge as peace ambassadors, participants will organise local actions to spread the idea of “peace in practice”. For the events, organisations can apply for microgrants of around € 200.
From Dreams to Actions is supported by the Erasmus + programme and the Council of Europe through the European Youth Foundation.
