The Project developed an innovative approach to train young people to become peer educator and conflict transformation facilitators amongst their peers. The training was developed jointly by young people and adult experts (social workers, educators, psychologists) focusing on art and informal education. Gender equality, ethnicity and disability were cross cutting issues. The trained facilitators run programmes in schools and/or youth centres, acquiring skills and confidence providing a peer education/conflict resolution service.
