On September 21-24, the Fund "Sukhumi" organized a four-day training on "The course of the basics of conflictology." Young people from 8 municipalities of Western Georgia (Kutaisi, Khoni, Tskaltubo, Senaki, Poti, Zugdidi, Ozurgeti, Batumi) participated in the work.
The following issues were discussed at the training: forms, types and analysis of conflict, methods of conflict resolution, the role of information in conflict resolution, the role of women and gender aspects of conflict resolution, masculinity and nationalism in fueling conflicts.
After one of the training blocks, the forum-theater of the fund “Sukhumi” and the discussion was held - the participants practically saw how the conflict is developing, what is the role of information and whether conflict prevention is possible.
In October, the second training will be held for this group, and then they will start conducting workshops with their peers themselves.
The project is implemented with the support of Canada Fund for local Initiatives (CFLI) – Canada Embassy in Turkey
