Contribution and youth priority

Introduction. Our workshop session of the National Laboratory started with a one-minute silence and prayer, following the phrase and gratitude: “Dear Mother, I miss you”.

The purpose and idea of the workshop activity were to encourage and sensitized young European citizens through positive coexistence and to cooperate in equal treatment between citizens and decision-makers by educating about nonviolent European values and that dialogue gives people the opportunity to interact, make decisions, talk about issues and encourage democratic and civic participation with the aim of social inclusion. Through debates and past life regression workshops improving and proposing new ideas for the social inclusion of marginalized people in Europe under the Nazi regime, the process of elaboration of the Union should be understood, promoting the understanding, exchange, and exchange of things equally, morally in terms of expression and solidarity, and give educational development of communication skills, discussing perception and in groups between citizens valuing differences and promoting tolerance with an educational purpose for better communication and change in society. This project will endeavor to promote knowledge and the use of “Dialogue Solutions” to combat anti-social behavior and intolerance among young people and make youth educators aware of its true potential and enhance responsibility for ensuring inclusion and integration by using a specially developed debate connecting the past with the present. 

The need was to introduce the debate and implementation of the human rights situation in all aspects, such as trust and freedom of expression, and that intercultural dialogue is not necessary to set aside, due to lack of confidence or the lack of encouragement. Innovation is found in the fact that there are no specialized conflict reduction programs, or online Platform based on a ‘dialogue’ approach to the problem of anti-social behavior and intolerance found in Europe that meets the needs of youth educators to help them to cut anti-social behavior and intolerance and help young people.

To do what?

This workshop activity achieved a specialist dialogue solution approach as a tool to discuss these problems and organized workshops/events that promote the dialogue solution approach for young people to combat violence through talking and connecting with past personalities through debating and researching on past life retrogression. And to develop a systematic evaluation of young people and youth workers, working with antisocial behavior and intolerance among young people and their use of “dialogue” approaches to combat the problem.
It establishes and starts up a young citizens office to support the needs, and the tools and activities of dissemination and exchange.

This process will raise awareness of the empowering role of implementing and building the local dimension of European strategies for active citizenship, community-led local development, and social cohesion.

Phases

We disclosed and reviewed and talked of Journey of Souls: Case Studies of Life Between Lives by Ph.D. Michael Newton Using a special hypnosis technique to reach the hidden memories of subjects, Dr. Newton discovered some amazing insights into what happens to us between lives, to help ourselves, and connecting with the past… Were we a soldier or a nonviolent educator from the past?

Later on, we picked up on Civic Activism and Participation – empowering citizens and young people to recognize ways they can engage in their communities. Oversight and Advocacy – stimulating genuine civil society to discuss contentious issues of the marginalized and stigmatize a group of citizens.

Getting on the progress of the second meeting on how to help civil society organization increase their capacity to engage in civic initiatives that mobilize citizens in social advocacy actions for improvement of the democratic process with equal treatment resolving issues and creating a better society for all – in all spheres by all meaning as first-class citizens, in fact, to raise awareness of constant engagement.

We share an education video and reading material from Michael Newtons Institute’s past life regression method and experience, The Newton Institute for Life Between Lives Hypnotherapy. We practiced discussions on Connecting You, Youth, and Life from past to present. Remembering past and sustain a peaceful future, connecting grieving youth, soldier letters, and education. Later on, we will check the workshop activity handbook with the title ”Past life regression with Diversity and inclusion of citizens through peaceful educational purposes and engagement” that will assure project sustainability of the nEures project. The handbook will serve as a tool for the  ”Democratic engagement and civic participation” giving a description of common problems and name different solutions to current issues. The project’s dissemination plan (in participating countries and beyond) aims to increase the visibility and use of project results. The activity duration is one day. 

We recapped and reviews and photo slides of the German War cemetery in Prilep, remembering the fallen soldiers from World War 2. Aleksandar Shuleski, an Executive Director of Youth Alexis shared his best knowledge on past life regression and soldier stories from the Lommel War German Cemetery in Lommel, Flanders region in Belgium connecting his experience of knowing a survived refugee from the Nazi war adopted by Dutch parents able to survive and live a peaceful life in the Netherlands continuously share his life story to young people. It was a real heartbreaking story of how the difficult past made people making efforts to sustain peace and nonviolence for the future.

Educational dimension

Local impact

It will engage more disadvantaged people in their communities and cut their marginalization and a consequent reduction in anti-social behavior as a result of the educational sessions. More young people and youth workers will be in touch with civil society and more aware of their views and differences. As a whole, they are likely to be able to take part in daily life democracy and are likely to become more active in other local issues of relevance. In the end a greater understanding of these issues across our European network on sharing nonviolent examples between young people and adults.

Visibility

At a local level, we will be targeting groups similar to those working with young people, working on inclusion, increasing participation, promoting engagement, communication, and collaborative creative learning, etc. Messaging to these targets will be more explicit in terms of actually derived benefits and contain a greater proportion of user-generated output from the project, to clarify the key benefits from the point of view of the beneficiaries. The key channels for this dissemination will be direct (email, online social media relationships, and leaflets) as well as via the attending of meetings, exhibitions, and networking events.

Our dyadic knowledge transfer system is composed of knowledge generation, adaptation, dissemination reception, and adoption and use phases. To a significant degree, facilitation of knowledge sharing & diffusion will be through learning by doing and interaction among the actors and audiences. Project lessons and fertilization of ideas and disseminated in terms of their tactic and embedded as per the target recipients. This will help in bridging the physical, organizational, institutional relationships and digital distances.

Channels and multipliers

• Websites for young people and material distributed in youth settings e.g. youth clubs, schools afterward.
• Multiplier effect among a wider audience – A key element of the project is the online network of information, utilizing active project participants as volunteers, practitioners and creating discussion panels and meetings.

Follow-up

We will develop the activity program of anti-discrimination issues and promoting facing youth on a local level, to let and connect people in sharing their competencies using cognitive method mixing education past life regression. People facing social anxiety, shame, and vulnerability. Creating charts and open conversations. Social, psychological, and cultural development, tools and materials, how to deliver and producing high-quality youth education, youth work, and youth participation.
Workshops, surveys, group discussions, and meetings. Effective collaboration and team working across diverse groups of young people increased understanding of self and others. Commitment to social action and equality, increased responsibility and independence, improved communication skills and the ability to influence others, ability to think critically and solve problems. The project contained non-formal and informal learning, using dynamics, a group working, one on one open speaking, discussions, self-analysis, social reflection.

We will like to pass on the outcome and experience with The Doughboy Foundation in the US and the Belgian War Cemeteries and Memorials, Belgium, and share out working experience and method.
