The project involved two training seminars: one in Berlin (04.03- 12.03.2016) and one in Bucharest (05.09 – 12.09.2016) a practice period for new-learned non-formal educational approaches in the home-countries in-between them.
Participants had the possibility to learn, discuss and evaluate a large variety of non-formal pedagogical approaches to deal with the European east-west history and its current consequences. Reflecting on the European history and the still existing stereotypes about the “east” and the “west” is an important part of political education and a great contribute to a peaceful Europe in future.
Training sessions were also a good opportunity to get information on the GDR history of Germany and the communist time in Romania. In order to deal with the wide range of pedagogical approaches, trainings involved activities such as doing excursions to historical memorial places, talking with contemporary witnesses, doing biographical work and trying out creative and artistic methods, like street art.
