Youth for Peace LTC in Tbilisi
If you met a group of youngsters wandering and shouting “Gadaooob” in Tbilisi from 14-18th April, then you probably met AEGEEans from Yerevan, Baku and Trabzon, who participated in “Youth for Peace” training course organized by AEGEE-Tbilisi. It’s not a secret that our region is one of the few ones in Europe where Peace and Stability is a burning question. There were many discussions at Agora Istanbul about the project that would let the locals from countries involved in certain conflicts cooperate and make partnerships. So AEGEE-Tbilisi turned plans into reality.
The training course was designed for the young people from the Caucasian region (Armenia, Turkey, Azerbaijan, Georgia) and it had an aim to raise awareness of the youth of different societies about conflicts, to focus their attention on the causes and the outcomes of different types of the conflicts.
The agenda of the event was also very unique and filled up with various trainings; personal conflicts in our lives, conflict resolution, international conflicts, theatre game seasoned with ice-breakers and energizers from morning till evening, then, at last, crazy Georgian nights ;).
We had our European night right in the sky located at Aghmashenebeli #77 😀 with guests from New Zealand, Germany, Slovakia, Estonia, France. As we were flying in heaven and enjoying Georgian, Turkish and Azeri food and drinks, somebody had stolen AEGEE-Yerevan’s flag (typical AEGEE style).
After various trainings pub night (photos reminded us what we were doing there 😉 ) with lots of “gamarjos” moments was one of the best ways of relaxation. Looking forward to meeting everyone again somewhere in Europe.
