GYR is a space where youth already involved in organisations, movements and initiatives within their countries or globally will share and learn together while supported and empowered by experienced peace workers from a number of key organizations in the field of peacebuilding. Around 100 passionate young people who are involved in organizations, movements and initiatives related to peace, social justice, activism or environmental issues will come together to learn, share and collaborate.

This exciting summer camp will include a variety of workshops and training sessions on key topics in the field, as well as seminars, film showings, discussions, exchanges, planning spaces, as well as the chance to hike and explore the surrounding countryside.

Eligibility:

The GYR summer camp is for youth workers, peacebuilders and activists aged 18 – 30 (although older participants are welcome to apply). 

Ideally, you will have some experience in the field (between 1-2 years) so that you can share your experiences and stories with other participants. They welcome applications from youth already engaged with organizations and from individuals who want to develop their relationships, skills and capacities in the field of peacebuilding and activism.

The aim is to keep costs as low as possible in the interests of making the camp as accessible as possible. Course contributions are:
OECD participants: 500 EUR
Non-OECD participants: 300 EUR

Costs cover:
• Transportation from Cluj-Napoca to the summer camp location;
• Ten nights of accommodation at the camp (10th-20th July) – a bed in a shared room or tent hire if you wish to camp;
