Euroforum East/West network

2006-ongoing

ICHD is considered to be the local partner of Euroforum East/West network www.euroforum-eastwest.org, which operates since January, 2006. It brings together youth organizations from the three countries of the South Caucasus (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia), Belarus and four countries of the European Union (France, Poland, Spain, Germany). The main goal of the network is to promote active citizenship and commitment of young people in the civil societies of the abovementioned countries. To enhance youth activism, groups of young people from the eight countries regularly meet during annual forums for training and experience exchange.

Since 2006 fifty Armenian youths have participated in various Euroforum events in Georgia, Spain, France, Poland and have networked with 200 young people from eight countries in Europe and Caucasus.

As a local partner in Armenia, ICHD strives to involve Armenian young people in Network's regular activities granting them a stable platform for acting and experience changing. Being active in all actions of the Network, in August 2009 ICHD initated the 5th Euroforum meeting in Armenia. ICHD hosted and organized the 5th Euroforum titled "Euroforum Armenia Training - Activation of Youth : speaking, negotiating with similar "language" through Intercultural Dialogue and Communication". The main objective of the meeting was to develop an effective and sustainable scheme or environment dedicated to the improvement of cooperative decision making, conflict management, join problem solving and leadership practices.
