Our world is rapidly drifting into chaos, wars are turning all around us.
It is up to us to find a solution to the problem of conflict that has become the plague of today.
That is why YPIDA is going back to Palestine and Jerusalem with young people comes from the background of conflict.
If you want to contribute to world peace, stay with us.

We have been participated in a project which held place in Bansko, Bulgaria. The Project was gathered under the title “Hate Speech Less”. During the project we had the opportunity to work with young people from six different countries who are willing, determined, hardworking and creative.
The project starts through various workshops, events, and challenging games, we tried to understand what hate speech is. We focused on preventing stereotypes beside breaking prejudices down. Then, we discussed what hate speech covers and how we can illustrate it. Finally, we have worked on how to deal with hate speech, one of the biggest problems of humanity. It was a great opportunity for us to criticise hate speech with people from all around the world. We could see the opposite ways of thinking from different backgrounds but also we could see how amazing friendships we can gain from totally different cultures in such a short amount of time. These memories and perspectives gave us another aspect to observe the world. It was a project in which each participant increased awareness and became a conscious individual after returning to his / her country.
As YPIDA and YPIDA Berlin , we are pleased to announce that we have officially begun the work of the “Innovative Approaches on Conflict Resolution – Mediators 1.0 Berlin” project which will take place in Berlin in July 2020.
The Project is funded by the Erasmus+ Program.
One of the major approach we would develop is the new social mediators that has the full knowledge and skills in building dialogue among youth and create the bridge that leads to safe environment where everyone would feel comfortable and listened in their challenges in life.
All detailed information about the project will be shared on our website very soon.
