Launch of the 2nd RESOLVE Erasmus+ programme

Asfar is happy to announce the launch of our second RESOLVE programme funded by Erasmus+.

RESOLVE, Asfar’s flagship reconciliation and peacebuilding network delivery model aims to develop community-based reconciliation skills in young people through a range of local, digital and transnational learning activities resulting in youth-led social action activities throughout Europe, the Middle East and the Caucasus.

RESOLVE: Reconciliation thru Youth will provide unique skills development opportunities for young people based in UK, Israel, Sweden and Georgia.

Free trip to Sarajevo – the city which changed the world

Asfar’s is currently recruiting UK participants aged 18 to 30 to participate in our Erasmus+ RESOLVE: East activity in Sarajevo, Bosnia & Herzegovina.

The dates are: 5th November 2018 to 11th November 2018.

The youth exchange is specifically aimed at young adults who wish to develop their skill-sets to be our communities’ future Peacebuilders, leaders and be involved in and launch a Conflict Resolution & Peace Network.

Sarajevo, will kick-start our project, the city which is still scarred from the Yugoslavian state collapse and the inter-ethnic/inter-faith war of the 1990s.

Sarajevo is also the location which triggered immense social, civic and economic change in 1914 through conflict, with the assignation of Archduke Franz Ferdinand causing the First World War.
