Peace Counts on Tour brings the exhibition “Peacebuilders around the World“ to conflict regions. The best-practice examples of successful peacebuilders inspire people to take action for peace in their own region or country.
The exhibition is accompanied by a training programme, which uses specifically adapted multimedia materials and the proven Peace Counts Learning Package. The workshop methodology centres on learning from biographies and visualization as a means to foster critical engagement with the essential topics, namely, conflict, violence and peace. Furthermore, it strongly focuses on participants and dialogue.
The training programme is designed for multipliers working in the educational, media or peacebuilding sector. It aims at strengthening their identity as peacebuilders and encourages them to work towards peaceful solutions for violent conflicts. During the workshops, participants are introduced to a variety of peace education methods. Many of them go on to integrate these approaches into their own working environment. Thus, they reuse or adapt the educational materials distributed during the training in their own educational work.
Over the years the Berghof Foundation established sustainable cooperation with a number of our local and regional partners opening new perspectives and opportunities for follow-up trainings.
