About the project
This project aims to empower and increase participants’ capacities to actively work with systemic approaches to social change. Through interactive exercises, creative and informal learning methods, the training courses will foster critical reflection about the ways in which global power structures are reproduced in local settings and in youth work. A particular focus is given to Theatre of the Oppressed, a method that helps bring to light systemic exploitation and oppression.

The second training course of the project will primarily focus on putting theoretical knowledge into practice by together developing frameworks for how to carry out work based on the methods, insights and approaches established in TC1.

Description of the organisation PeaceWorks Sweden
PeaceWorks Sweden is a non-profit organisation for youth and run by youth. It is a norm-critical platform with the vision of a just and sustainable world in peace, where young people are active actors in society - and where that society is characterised by peace, global justice and solidarity, transcending constructed, national, cultural, social and economic boundaries. PeaceWorks’ work is guided by our organisational themes of global justice, anti-racism and feminism and our activities are consistently grounded in youth activism and principles of non-violence. We actively work to realise our goal of being a platform for young people’s involvement in, and commitment to, peace and sustainable development.
