Stand: 26.10.2020

1. Order description

The Academy for Conflict Transformation, a department of the Forum Civil Peace Service (forumZFD) will conduct a series of online masterclasses for alumni on different topics related to peacebuilding and conflict transformation, such as, but not limited to:

• Dialogue Processes
• Peace Psychology
• Peace Education

2. Concept description

Each masterclass should have a clear focus on one aspect or topic related to peacebuilding and conflict transformation. The duration of a masterclass is 3 hours, and the maximum number of participants will be 16. The time frame and number of participants can still be open to discussion, if the facilitator considers it necessary.

Each masterclass should be built around two key elements: the expertise and input of the facilitator, and a dynamic exchange among participants, who are expected to participate actively, bring in their own experience and get to know the rest of alumni.

Masterclasses will take place on the videoconferencing platform BigBlueButton. The Academy encourages the use of additional software and platforms such as interactive whiteboards or brainstorming tools for exchange among participants and can offer there if agreed to in advance.
Masterclasses will be offered in English.
