Face 2 Faith
“Face 2 Faith” is a mobility of youth workers, KA1 Training Course, under Erasmus+ and will be implemented by Copernicus Berlin e.V. (Germany). The training course will take place in Yerevan, Armenia and it will involve 28 youth workers from 7 different countries (Germany, Belgium, Spain, Bulgaria, Georgia, Ukraine and Armenia).
The main aim of “Face 2 Faith” is to provide youth workers with educational support and open space for sharing and exchanging knowledge on interreligious dialogue. Some of the specific objectives of the projects for youth workers are: to promote interreligious dialogue and acceptance among youth workers and equipping them with tools and methods to further promote those among young people; to provide participants with new knowledge that will help them to challenge stereotypes, prejudices and foster mutual understanding; to raise competences of youth workers to empower youngsters in our communities and raise their competences and motivation for critical review towards media and media reporting, when it comes to religious backgrounds.
The project will use non formal learning methodology including methods such as: ice breakers, energizers, name games, reflection groups, working into intercultural subgroups, facilitated discussion, creative presentations, simulation, case study and debates.
The project will involve 28 participants, 4 for each of the Partner Countries, over 18 years. The project is implemented by 7 organisations and financed by the European Commission through Erasmus+ programme.
