Themes for the Virtual Forum
- Change we want to see in our society / Le Changement que nous voulons voir dans notre société
- Participation of youth in (ethnic) conflict resolution / La Participation des jeunes dans la transformation des conflits
The Virtual Forum is a part of the Amahoro Amani Cooperation between Scouts and Guides in Sweden and the Great Lakes region. The cooperation is based on values of peace, dialogue and conflict resolution. Together we work in Scouting, Guiding and Peace Clubs with the method of Amahoro Amani.
The methodology focuses on mutual understanding and is fundamentally based on the notion that only when we understand our own prejudices and norms can we understand and solve conflicts”
