Young Peacebuilders in Ghana Care for a Common Cause

A group of 24 young peacebuilders from 10 peace organisations from 5 West-African countries participated in the 5-day Care for a Common Cause training programme. Self-expression appeared to be a core quality of this vibrant group! They improved their competencies on appreciative understanding and learned approaches for constructive dialogue.

The Care for a Common Cause training developed by Perspectivity offers young community leaders a methodology that encourages them to work in multi-stakeholder settings on often very complex security issues in high-risk areas. Participants are introduced to the attitudes needed to creating common ground with different stakeholders and formulating innovative and effective action plans.
