2. Breaking Stereotypes

Breaking Stereotypes Balkans is a three-day Training Course, which aims to bring together young leaders coming from Balkans (Kosovo, Monte Negro, Serbia, Greece, and Macedonia) to solve the crucial issues of the young generation. This project is created by the official members of AWP, most of them trained in the field and with an international experience. During our interaction with young people and not only, we have identified the urgent need for a re-connection with history, good traditions and our roots for the preservation of the so-called “national character” which differs a lot from the impact that Albanians have in the international arena. The participants need to understand that the fight is not about the creation of a positive stereotype, but about awareness and understanding the reality.  We intend to raise awareness and not raise national feelings!
