Apart from analyzing the reasons for conflicts, the young people also tried to find out about and differentiate between the needs and agendas of the different groups given by the simulation game by referring back to the communication techniques learnt throughout the workshop. At the end of the two days our participants were able to find a democratic solution for a problem and to avoid its escalation.
24 young activists from all parts of Georgia participated in our two-days workshop.
The participants learned the basic principles of conflict behavior, how dynamics of conflict evaporate and what is necessary to avoid the escalation of an argument. In addition to the theoretical concepts on peace and conflict management, there was also the chance to practice the new knowledge in dealing with personal conflicts and to apply them on the simulation game the following day.
