Connecting Futures – Living Together

Operating since 2004

ICHD and its partners from Georgia, Azerbaijan and Northern-Ireland have commenced preparations for establishing a regional youth forum for peace and stability: the Connecting Futures – Living Together network in April 2004. The network aims at promoting relations among youth in various countries. It is instrumental in transferring skills and knowledge on identity, communication, negotiation and other issues, and delivering skills necessary for mutual understanding and dialogue.

Supported by the British Council, ICHD and its partners conducted training for 43 young women and men from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia and Northern-Ireland in Likani, Georgia. The participants have developed projects for their future activities and initiatives. After the training they have announced about launching the network. Later, the ICHD and its partners have facilitated a training of trainers for 22 members of the network at Corrymeela Center, Northern-Ireland in October 2005.

The Armenian members of the network conducted three trainings for 60 young Armenian men and women locally under the overall guidance and support of the ICHD in 2005-2006. The network partners have delivered parallel training in the countries of their residence. The Connecting Futures – Living Together network engages over 300 young people from the South Caucasus and Northern Ireland, who are implementing various small-scale projects and joint activities currently.
