Pan-European workshop on novel approaches, concepts and methods
Organizer: Coventry University
Date: June 2017
Location: Coventry, UK
Coventry University hosted the first of the Peacetraining.eu workshops, which specifically examined the concept of ‘novelty’ in training programmes in the CPPB field. Based around three key questions, the workshop explored what drives trainers and educators to seek to try novel approaches, how organisations facilitate the transition towards novelty, and finally the challenges associated with incorporating novel approaches to training in CPPB. The workshop was organised in collaboration with the ‘BuildPeace’ project, which seeks to build peacebuilding capacities through integrating formal and non-formal learning approaches, and it was well attended, with over 30 participants from the UK, Bosnia, Serbia, France and Turkey.
